With Performance and Nashbar throwing their 15% off sales, I thought I'd check them out. After all, a cyclist can always (window) shop, right? Well, I stumbled across this interesting little deal on the Performance SSR track/fixie frame. They are selling the SSR Frame and Fork for $229. This is a pretty good deal... WAIT A MINUTE... I looked on the same page and they have the frame itself for $249. Yes, folks, Performance is willing to pay you $20 for a $99 fork. In other words, this fork costs less than $0. Sounds like a deal to me. If you don't like the graphics of the SSR, the decals are removable for that Kitt look.
Flabbergasted and utterly curious, I wandered over to the Nashbar site to see if there were any similar pots of gold. Well, they weren't willing to pay me to take their parts, but I did find the ultimate cargo riding jacket!
Sure, when empty, the pockets may billow like those sprinting parachutes, but I'd still love to see how many beer cans and/or burritos I could cram in that thing. Alternatively, it might just be the perfect jacket for a fly fishing bike tour.
