    I don't know every company's policy on OE product, but I know Shimano's is that it's the retailer's or manufacturer's (Giant, Trek, Spec) responsibility and not them. If you buy a new bike and brakes crap out, you deal with the frame manufacturer, not Shimano. So yeah, OE is a big factor and I can definitely see why Jenson won't PM it. You're not even close to comparing the same things at that point. Yeah, it might be the same part, but with warranty considerations in there, it changes the game to me.

    Jenson assumed it was OE. Just like they assumed the the rims were out of stock (they arrived in 3 business days) jenson refuses to price match again , and just like they assumed the eggbeater SL pedals from blusky were OE (they were full retail packaging including cleats). They make up excuses not to price match. If anyone wants proof I can give it to them I have invoiceof the rims I ordered arriving within 3 buisiness days, and I have the invoice of the eggbeaters and shots of 4 pairs of them in my basement still in their box.

    What would be better is Jenson changed the wording on their price match to say "We price match most competitors, but if it's too low then we won't" I would not fault them for it. Just quit with the bull excuses it just pisses people off.

    On an (inversely?) related note, I love that Jenson will credit you money if you buys something and then find them selling it for less a few days later. Yay for JensonUSA!

    Well, they're right this time. It's been extensively reported on this site that blue sky's brakes are oem.

    OP.......they just don't like you.

    They have your picture mounted on the wall under the "Blacklisted......Don't Price Match This Customer".

    Uhmmmm, why would they assume that? That's right, because bluesky is notorious for it. If you hate Jenson so much shop somewhere else, otherwise stuff a sock in your yap and go ride your bike.

    I'd ASSUME it too, considering how little BSC sells that is truly new in box product. OEM product is not the same, no matter how you try to sugar coat it. You have it out for Jenson and any time you don't get exactly what you want, you pull out your whiny entitled little jackass act and try to slam them online. I doubt you know much of jack about how a small business works and what it takes to put food on the table. BSC plays underhanded little games on their page and does not advertise honestly in any way. Yeah, you can say I have it out for them, because they ripped me years ago with a product that malfunctioned and would have been warrantied had it not been OEM, but I've dealt with tons of online shops and all the others are pretty explicit in saying OEM/OE/Take-off, etc. BSC is the only one I know that tries to hide it.

    It pisses you off. Almost everyone else has the ability to reason this out for themselves. You on the other hand are having trouble with sorting this out, even with all these kind, generous people attempting to guide you, show you the error of your ways. Einstein had something to say about actions of these types.

    "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".

    Simple solution: Never buy from Jenson. Never post about Jenson again.

    Even more simple solution: If you attempt to buy from Jenson again, go slam your jimmy in a door first, then you can have something real to whine about.

    Jenson just needs to change the wording to "We will only price match on most items as long as it's still profitable." "Guaranteed price match" is misleading and blatantly false..

    Think about it this way. A company says on their site "Price Match" yet they refuse to price match certain prices because they happen to have inside knowledge of the other businesses practices. How is the customer supposed to which are legitimate claims and which were fabricated in order to skirt their price match guaranty? The customer had no way of knowing who is telling the truth. They choose who and when to price match and customer are left guessing as to who and what to believe.

    Brilliant! calling someone you don't agree with "stupid" is the one of the best response I've ever heard. Isn't that kind of like the pot calling the kettle black?

    You want Jenson to change the wording of their policy, but you have no problem with BSC selling you OEM products and claiming them to be new? I have some condoms that haven't been used, but they're out of the packaging, you want to buy a few?
