If you're looking to make a big purchase.... cbike.com has a sale this weekend.

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

If you're looking to make a big purchase.... cbike.com has a sale this weekend.

I have no affiliation with them--they're well known to sell some nice stuff and 20% off is a pretty good deal. I don't think I've ever ordered from them to be honest with you. I was just researching wheels and came across the sale banner.

3 jerseys and a pair of socks, and I would have my 1000 min. Outrageous.

Must be the Assos, of course. That price is outrageous no matter where you look. But this is the best sales blurb:

Thanks to Assos, though, not only can we ride in extraordinary comfort (in any weather, on any length ride), but we can stop mid-ride at the coffee shop and hold our heads high as we click-clack past the table full of feverishly-gossiping, Macchiato-sipping, Sequoia-driving, "maybe I'll take a Yoga class"-thinking soccer moms who, in fact, look better after 2 kids at age 35 than they did in college. Thank you Assos. You let us feel like men.
It bears repeating.

Let me just say that if I spent $320 on a jersey, I would feel like something other than a man.

Me too. I'd feel like a man with a lot more disposable income than I have now.

Now I can see why I don't have them bookmarked.
Their prices are absurd (even with a 20% discount).

Please direct me to a place that has Zipps cheaper than retail minus 20%, because I'll be wanting to buy from them soon.
