Performance Bike <--> Nashbar???(4 posts)

Performance Bike <--> Nashbar???HAL9010

Is it true as I saw mentioned in another post that Performance Bike bought (out) Bike Nashbar? It is the first I heard of it as there is no indication on either website. Months ago Performance bought out and converted 7 San Diego county Bike-USA stores. Those of us who were local customers were notified of the change and pending sales specials (goodie for us then).

So can this be substantiated by anyone out there in CyberBike Land?

Beers! (Ales only please)

Nashbar told me that they had been bought by Performance in an email message.

Performance bought out a few Bikes USA stores in VA as well - I know of one in Tyson's corner they grabbed.

Actually, I think the two became one a couple of years ago. You will notice that Performance has far fewer sales these days. However, Nashbar has much more.

Performance has the higher end new stuff. If you check thier site every day you will notice that Performance's sales just aren't what they used to be. That's because all of the big discounts and discontinued stuff will quickly get shipped to Nashbar. Thus, you will not be getting an extra 10% off with Team Performance.

Visit their site often enough and you will notice that items which are no longer at Performance often show up the next day at Nashbar.

As for moi, I love them both. Performance is great and they are the best when it comes to customer satisfaction.

The other day I ordered Ultegra cranks for $99 and then found them at Supergo for $90. One email to Performance and they adjusted my price before the package ever arrived.
on my last order from Nashbar, they answered...IAmtnbikr

"Performance Bike" to which I laughed and the man said "oops". So I wonder if they are actually using the same location for their calls, and just differentiate by which incoming phone line they pick up.
