I don't see the 24s in there! also when you click "buy" the price goes up to $54 per

and jesus is that a real site? looks like it was made with geocities

yeah I remember the deals being better but $75 for the pair + pretty decent tubes + coupon is still pretty decent.

Buy if you're in the market for cranks. Pass if you're trying to flip. 75's are worthless now.

There have been multiple sets of 75 crank arms + BB for sale at the $125-$150 price point recently.

Yes, but stiff. Like threadless systems (here we go again).

I dunno, I'd still trade my omniums/bb for a set of 75 crankset/bb. They look a bit better imo, but I can't find anyone with 170's to trade.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-SE-Premi...ht_10012wt_952 I don't think this is to shabby of a deal I kinda like it. I don't know what they normally go for but it seems cheap to me.

six dollars a month or sixty a year, I believe. It's really only that worth it if you have powertap and a heart monitor. Otherwise the only benefit is seeing this info on others rides, which may/may not be that interesting for you.

Yeah, I think I will get by just fine on a free account. So far I find it really neat and a great idea.

yeah I thought about buying it monthly just before that promo, just to see if I like it. It's so much cheaper yearly that I was almost suckered into that. I may grab a heart rate monitor to see if I really want that kind of info, but I think I'll probably stick with the free one

Yes, a better deal for the frame and fork on Bikeisland for $199
or $400 for the complete bike at BD, both with free S&H
