Hot deals - post 'em if you got 'em.

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

Hot deals - post 'em if you got 'em.

I have heard nothing. I have a PayPal receipt though (SmartShare LLC, plus an email to an .edu), so I expect the glasses will eventually show up, or PayPal will get me a refund.

Wouldn't it be easier to just go buy cheap sunglasses from a gas station?

going to a gas station and buying cheap sunglasses takes a lot more effort than a couple of mouse clicks.

Maybe someone wants to start a(nother) cheap sunglass thread and take this out of the Hot Deals thread?

PhotoJoe, you're right, I don't want to clutter up this thread with discussion of those foakleys any more (and I don't want others to either), so I'll just note that I received my glasses in the mail last night, and found another thread to post my impressions.

I've been watching REI drop the price on this bike little by little.

SuperSix Evo H2C, size 58, $2398.73

Not Di2 but a compelling price for a Dura Ace bike.

I just bought this bike from REI they had 56 as well can't wait to get it. Looks like it's a 2015 Hi mod.

Matches your son's BMX bike in the background. Bonus!

This seems like a good deal if shipping to the US isn't too much.

$220 for a smart trainer sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I thought I got a deal at 130. Very nice price. Very nice helmet too. Been using mine for a year now.

As far as Foakleys go, I used to use the real ones religiously. Then I went to the Arena XL from Smith, and I will never buy an Oakley again.

I've had a pair of these on my Amazon shopping list for over a year now. Perhaps I'll pull the trigger at some point.

This year was the first with zero bug-in-eyeball situations. The arena xl's are big but the look good and function very well. I no longer have dry red eyes after cycling.

Actually, there were some cheaper options when Amazon moved to pricematch CC sale, although specific sizes/colors.

If you are interested in merino cycling gear (now that winter is approaching fast), Ibex still has El Fito 3/4 pants on sale for $50
Ibex Merino Wool Men's El Fito 3/4 Bottom
coupon OUTLET20 should take another 20% off. Get 2 for $80 to get it shipped free. Only L and XL left unfortunately.

Speaking of Ibex, STP got some. This seems to be nice:
http://www.sierratradingpost.com/ibe...or-men~p~167yd
and with 20% and 25% off coupons should be a good deal. I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

I missed this post since it was sandwiched in between two posts with big images. No normal sizes left. Did they have any when originally posted?

Too bad I missed a MIPS helmet sized M.

I have a whole list of things that I need to buy (saddle, handlebar tape) and some nice to have (new helmet, etc). How is Black-Friday/Cyber-Monday/Whatever-its-called with online bike retailers? I could easily wait another few weeks. The same question applies to UK stores as well since I need new tires.
