    LBS Closing :(

    The only bike shop in town is closing.
    Start House Ski and bike 75% off EVERYTHING. By the time I went in, they sold all MTBs but one 2012 X-Cal 19".
    Bought that for $320, 2 Bontrager XR4 tires for a total of $30, a new Bontrager helmet for $15, a new hat for $9, a bottle cage for free, and three bike shop bike supports for $30. There was a total of $450 when the retail was $1600. So I made out good today , but it stinks that the LBS is closing. I found out that my friend Nate, who is a mechanic, will work at Mason Racing (the local Rocky Mountain dealer), so I will probably still see him.
    Oh I hate this economy!

    LBS Closing :(

    Ya know roughly 30% of my income goes to organizations that didn't earn it. If I got to keep that money I could probably keep one or two bike shops afloat. ;-P

    Yeah the deal is sweet.
    Saved $1188.70. And that X-Cal is awesome. It has the real Reba with the dual air, which alone cost more than $450.
