    Past BF deals at Jenson/PP

    Can anyone give me any idea of what kind of and how good of a sale Jenson or Price Point had last year on Black friday/cyber monday?

    Looking to do a 1x10 conversion and wondering if I should wait on certain things or pull the trigger on some of the sales going on now.

    Specifically Jenson has a 20% off coupon that expires sunday which means I could get the $100 crankset I want for $80 but i'm wondering if it will go down more or maybe other sets go on crazy sale.

    Get on their mailing list. Going ahead and getting the cranks wouldn't be a bad idea though.

    I dont know what crankset you are thinking about getting, but if you are already planning on spending that much, you would be hard pressed to do better than spending $100 on these:

    That's a hell of a deal. I got one on eBay at that price and was tickled pink. With that price, and being X9 parts are very resonably priced, you can put together a whole drivetrain for a very fair price.

    Keep in mind that . . .

    a) the cranks mentioned above at Merlin are out of stock (and with Merlin that normally means they won't be back in stock at that price).

    b) the Jenson coupon is only applicable to full priced items. The only $100 single-ring crank for which the coupon would apply is the Raceface Ride. I don't think that $80 for that crank is a must-have deal.

    You're going to be 120 into it after a nice chainring. Not a bad deal, but not a good one. The best option is to find the crank that fits your applicantion best, then find the best price rather than fret over an extra 20 bucks that you won't notice six months from now when you wish you and purchased what you wanted.

    What makes it not a good deal in your opinion? The price or the actual crankset.
