    Bonking ... not feelin' well Ultimate Lever Price Increase??!!...

    I've had a lusting for Avid Ultimate levers for a while now but have been stalling because it seemed that the price is a bit steep and maybe they'd come down. Jenson had them priced at $115 for as long as I can remember and yesterday I was going to bite the bullit and order them but they have them priced at $200. I'm going to give them a call tomorrow...hopefully it's a typo.

    Damm talk about inflation. Just call them up and see if that is the true price, and you never know maby they would give you a little price break. If worse comes to worse, you may just have to shop around, and see if you could find a cheaper price. Good luck.

    Yeah, they'l price match and BeyondBikes has 'em priced on their website @$129. I shoulda' jumped on them when Jenson had 'em for $115 though errrrrrrr! I talked to Larry @ mtnhighcyclery a coupla' months ago and I'm pretty sure he said he could do them for $129. When it comes down to this point, I'd rather support my LBS...even though he's a thousand miles away .
