    I bought another works red SlopeStyle as well. Althought this one's a small for my fiance, though. I guess this means that she's not going to get a Tracer to replace the 5.5. Now the question is, do I build up a new bike more DH worthy, or do I swap most of the parts over from the 5.5 and make this her all-mountain/XC bike? Damn impulse buys....

    The time varies on what the item is. Sometimes, they only post an item for 20 minutes. Other times it's 30 or so. But for items like this, they only have a limited number of items available so it's a first come, first serve deal, so you have to act fast. Like Orange Goblin, I acted fast without much thought (although I had been casually thinking of getting my girlfriend either a Tracer or a SlopeStyle). I got the only small works red SS they had available this time around. They'll likely be doing this again, so you have to keep watching.

    Agreed. I was at an Intense shop last night talking about getting my gf an SS at 10% off retail - the chainlove deal sure beats that! Just the same, any Intense dealer can sell things for less if they want to make less profit per unit.

    Nonetheless, fortunately, I'm an Intense customer and not a dealer - sure is a great time to be a customer!

    Actually, they can't! From what I know this was one of the reasons Intense pulled dealerships from a bunch of online shops. Undercutting local dealers . And if chainlove didn't get better deals on frames than a regular LBS they must be losing money on the frames they sell.

    My guess is that chainlove is getting a better deal than the other dealers because they agreed to buy out all the leftover inventory (over 130 SS frames, plus over 30 6.6's, etc) and probably have an agreement to buy large amounts of future inventory.

    Bingo! I agree with you 100%, they're not losing money and I'm sure they have approval from Intense.
