Just found out I saved $250 on my last purchase...

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

Just found out I saved $250 on my last purchase...

When I bought my components and wheels there was a typo on the website, saving me $250

It was:

Full ultegra 6600 groupset (crank is fsa slk carbon megaexo which adds retail value)
Plus, american classic 420 wheelset
Two Michelin Pro2 Race tires

I paid $1100. The typo is fixed now. They had it set up for substituting the fsa crank instead of the ultegra crank subtracts $150 from your order (typo #1). There is also $100 now added to the base price as well (typo #2). So thats $250

It matches if not beats ebay prices, plus I get the full manufacturer warranties.

Very nice... That's really cool that they honored it despite the fact that the prices were wrong. Then again, perhaps they didn't notice until they sold it to you and shipped it out.

You think that's great? I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.
