Powertap Wheels - $639.99 delivered

[MENTION=189195]TrojanHorse[/MENTION] was saying recently of what a dilemma it is to have two different cassettes, but only one Powertap wheel. Well, here is the answer. Through 8/10/14, only $639/99 with free shipping.

https://www.performancebike.com/bikes...rue&quantity=1

$799.99 less 20%. And comes with a computer you can sell to reduce the cost even further.

You are welcome.


For the newer C/A forum members, one of the main purposes of this forum is to spend Trojanhorse's money!

I see what you did there.

box section wheels though, I don't think I can go back to those. Too fussy.

I saw that deal this morning. I wish I had the money. The PowerTap alone is worth $750. That is a smoking deal.

Even if you end up throwing the wheels away and keeping just the PowerTap G3 hub it's still a good deal. You can find the G3 for around $650 on eBay, but anywhere else it's going to be $750 or more...

Well, the wheels are a FULL 100g lighter than my powertap pro wheelset that doesn't use box section rims.

If I *were* in the market for another PT wheel set I'd get these (I've realized it's not the wheels holding me back. ). Talk about a screaming deal! 1,359.99 after the extra 20% off. I mean... [MENTION=190382]PhotoJoe[/MENTION], if you want to spend my money you need to think bigger.

I know exactly what I'm doing. I'm no noob. I merely suggested the Performance deal to get the ball rolling. I know the way you think. Before you actually pull the trigger, you'll end up talking yourself into these:
