I've been watching a small clothing manufacturer in Toronto named Two Circles Cycling.
https://www.twocirclescycling.com
They have has some pretty good sale prices right now. Not mind blowing deals but $63 isn't bad for a jersey nowadays, especially if you are looking for something different, a jersey that no one else will be wearing.

Random but I actually enjoy going through the defeet/ sockguy factory 2nds at performance; you'll never know what you find. I once even found a pair that was originally made for my buddy's team order.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my factory seconds from performance. No noticeable defect or issue.

I weigh 320 Do you know if these will withstand my weight. The internets seem to be mixed about heavy riders and carbon fibre parts

It has been brought to my attention that this is for one roll only. That's pretty lame. Why would anyone sell single rolls?!

Wow, those are killer prices. I wonder if there's any sacrifice in QC, customer service, etc., when buying direct.

Shows how much of a markup there is, overhead for fuel for shipping, warehousing and logistics, etc.

Thomson's main business is aerospace parts. They only started making bike parts as a way to use spare manufacturing capacity when the aerospace business was slow. Quality control on the parts themselves should not be a problem.

I'm so glad they are selling direct now. Their stem for example, was $79 from the UK distributors but I could not find it for less than $99 from any US distributor. Six months later it still bother's me that a part which went to the UK and back was $20 less than a part which was manufactured three hours from my house and never went overseas. It's not a patriotic thing - I just don't understand how it is possible.

Dammit, I'm day late & a dollar short as usual. Been wanting a Masterpiece but those really great prices are now kaput and they've gone back to their usual high prices at which they've been selling bits directly from their webstore for awhile

Yeah... poof, and it was gone.

I wonder what's up with that.

I should have ordered 50.

Best price I'd found so far for a Masterpiece speced like I want was about $120 (which is why I never pulled the trigger) so I'm really bummed that I missed out...

Keep your eye on the Bicycle Recyclery site. I got a brand new, never installed Masterpiece from them for $69. It was still in the fabric bag and had the torque spec stickers on it.

They have a used 31.6mm with 16mm setback right now for $34.99. It has been cut though.
