$90 for a serfas thunderbolt? I bought one of those in an inner city Sydney bike shop for $40 (normal price).


Last 50% off sale I saw was preceded by a 66% on sale. :angry:

It's all too hard. Too much to bear. Some escapism is needed.

I'm going for a ride ! New track to ride in Belmont, and try not to crash my brains out on the slippery DH ruts on Bull run.

I think I've got enough for now

I bought a commuter jacket at 50% off, but 50% off was actually closer to proper price ... just check the prices against other shops ;)

Bottom line is you still get a better price than anything else so I don't know why anyone would complain


Oh wait, I know why! Because cycling is _my_ thing and now someone is making it more accessible than ever before to the everyman, and now I am not cool anymore. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Couple of weeks ago I asked about lights I'd seen what had a flash mode that was all over the show/really eye catching - lawandorder suggested it'd be a knog light. Indeed it is - I got a knog blinder 4 as a second rear light. The flashing modes are excellent. Unfortunately the charger bit seems very flimsy :paranoid:

Glad to have been of assistance. I've got the same light, it should come with a short green USB extender thingie which helps. The flip out charging connector does seem a bit flimsy but with the USB extender shouldnt be an issue
