Solid deals. Had I not just gotten my new sweet hybrid, these frames would have been candidates.

They're super weird in my hands and I've never ride them, but it's pretty incredible how quickly road discs went from clunky garbage to XT-level braking and 105 shifters for $250.

I found a pair of those at the tip shop with 3x 6500 BBs. Passed them onto a friend, a year later I grabbed another pair from a different friend with a NOS 6500 BB and a sweet SS salsa ring and put them on the landshark SSCX.

Apart from the inevitable BB grenading, pretty good.

I like them. Not super low Q, but good enough, and stock they often have a 29t small ring. BBs have actually held up wuite well under me.

Swrve is trying to clear out their lightweight synthetic pants/shorts. I've been really happy with them over the years.
40% off using code: BREEZY40

I was considering picking up some more for 2018 but cautiously awaiting the new model which I hope has synthetic pockets instead of cotton.

Just looking through old emails to see when they released the mesh pockets I found this from 2015:

Quote:
Hi Andrew -
GOOD NEWS -- I spoke with the design team, and it looks like we will be making some Cigarette Cut Lightweight Shorts! WHoHOoo!
They may even have mesh pocketing (we're trying to find a tighter weave mesh so keys don't get caught in the pocket fibers). If we have luck finding the correct pocketing then you'll have a cigarette cut with fast drying pockets. DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!

Stay posted - these dream shorts will not be available this summer, more like January 2016.

I wonder if they ever made the fit even more slim on the lightweight trouser shorts? The cotton pocket ones from 2015 are still pretty loose, despite being "slim fit", compared to the cigarette shorts.

Sorry, I should have spoken up, I felt some pressure to quickly order because every time I hear about a Rapha sale I wait 24 hours and then all the size mediums have vanished.

On the bright side I didn't squander the code on a single handkerchief. Got all this for $200

yeah, I know...... I dont want to take it to save $30 bux on the one thing I would buy, I guess if noone else takes it I will use it before it expires though.
I would team up with any other seattle folks if they want stuff.

Well that's concerning. I ordered a couple pairs, but used paypal so I'm not *too* concerned. I didn't see the spam though, it was today?

I suppose I'll report back if I got sunglasses/scammed/etc.

I bought some of those knock off raybans that advertised by hacking people's FB accounts maybe a year ago. Was fine.

Some eBay seller appears to be clearing out a rather large inventory of Raleighs and Diamondbacks for pretty steep discounts, e.g.: https://m.ebay.com/itm/New-2017-Raleigh-RX-2-0-Complete-City-Bike/182446873577?_mwBanner=1
