    Shimano UN73 Square Tapered Bottom Bracket at REI $4.83

    Just stopped by REI today to search for a UN54 square tapered bottom bracket, but I ran across a UN73 of the same size, and it was only $4.83. The UN73 model is discontinued.

    You'll have to ask to see the bottom brackets in their drawers in the bicycle workroom because they are not stored out on the floor (at least not the one I went to here in west central Houston). Make sure there is a sticker that will ring up with the discounted price (it won't have a price on it) and check the price using the price scanner they have out on the floor. The original sticker will have a $34.00 price tag.

    Only disclaimer I can make is this is from my experience, so I can't guarantee this will be the case at your REI.

    Wow, that's pretty ridiculous. Has anyone else tried this? Was it a mistake in the Houston store, or are they really selling them for $5?

    Yeah, I picked up a Un53 for $7 the other night and a UN72 for $5 last night. The selection is pretty limited, but I think they are doing the extra 50% off prices ending in .83 through the weekend.

    man, i just went to rei - the blaze crankset was 54.....i guess the markdown comes off at the register?

    if so - im grabbing it tomorrow...it'll be nice to have a 3rd ring for the downhill commute to work....plus ill have my current crankset w/ bash available for off-roading.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    when I scaned the item, the price was $19.83.
