Performance Bike Online vs Store Prices and Availability

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Performance Bike Online vs Store Prices and Availability

Hi,

Sorry for the duplicate post, but I figured a few of us will be buying stuff from them given their great sale.

Many performance items have "take an additional x% off when added to your cart". Is this discount also in the store or is it only online? There is thread from 2005 which says its a mix.

Also, it seems their inventory check for bikes is broken. I've not found a single bike that is available at my local performance per the website. Is their inventory for parts similarly broken?

Wouldn't it make more sense to just call the store and ask them..?

Yes, but that would interfere with his goal of cluttering BF with inanity.

Its in store too. I saw their torque wrench for 40% off so I went into the store to get one. It wasn't marked in the store as any sale at all, but it rang up at the correct sale price. The funny thing is that they had toe covers marked down as a door buster with a big sign, but they didn't ring up on sale. They corrected it though no problem.

Thanks @lupy you were right.
@rmnfnia, yeah I would do that on any other day but today. They started there Thanksgiving sales early and have a massive sale with many bikes 60% off so no one was answering the phones of the local store hence the post. When I walked in there must have been 50+ people in there. Crazy, but got some great deals.
