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

Thanks for the heads-up! I've been meaning to order a pair for awhile now. Just did it. Two tires, delivered for $60.51 USD. That's what they are EACH locally. Unreal.

For extra speedy delivery, order shortly after the volcano erupts.

This is one area where I can't resist taking advantage of these kind of deals because I don't mind spending an extra $20 to support the LBS on a purchase but $60 is another story especially on tires which get replaced fairly regularly.

Cheers! That's good to know, next batch I'll head out and pick some up there to contribute to the local economy.

Last time I ordered, I found out when I got my credit card statement that Citibank adds a 3% fee to PBK (and any other foreign) purchases. (The exchange rate that Citi applied was also slightly less favorable than what PBK used, not surprisingly.) The tires still come out cheaper, but Citi certainly takes their "vig." Do other card issuers charge the same fee?

Finally, as has been mentioned before, it's worth using a "virtual account number" if you can when ordering from PBK.

Noisebeam is a liar, it's really my fault since I bought a new pair yesterday, thank me instead! lol

Also, 60$ for a pair shipped... screw me sideways and call me Sally, that's more expensive that just ONE tire at any LBS I've been to.

Also, some of their Craft base layers are half price. I like these better than Under Armour.

Ordered some this morning. I get two tyres for the price of one locally. I don't need them yet but still...

At least I'm keeping my LBS happy by having them special order a wheel for me. And I must be due to take a couple of bikes there for a service.

Ordered a set also.... Should we be concerned that their current stock is listed as -9 tires?

Makes me really glad I didn't place the order yesterday when I was looking at them.

FYI, it's not the Conti GP 4000 with the chili compound, if you care.

from the first link:

But the Grand Prix 4000 S can do more than just look good. With the new Black Chili Compound rolling resistance is reduced by 26%, grip is increased by 30% and mileage is increased by 5%.
