colorado cyclist sale BLOWSby666

i was very excited about this sale so i checked it out first thing this morning and it blows. most of the stuff is at best 20% off the colorado cyclist already high prices and some things arent discounted at all. they are selling a litespeed classic and tuscany at 0% off. some conti tires are also regular price but they are in the warehouse sale area. if all this wasnt bad enough the site cant handle the traffic and its painfully slow, and i have a t1 line.

I ordered a few items that ended up out of stock, so all I received was one $10 item with whatever they ended up charging for shipping ($4.75 I think)... which turned out to be an expensive item considering I could have easily purchased it locally. Out of principle I should have returned it. I would have preferred that they cancel the entire order... oh well....

Yeah, it is a disappointment. The only item I found was an XTR remote-shift kit (I only wanted it for the 8-speed pod, which was a good deal for $29). That said, I disagree that CC's prices are high at all - have always found their prices among the best and their service second to none.

I am building a road bike, and bought a set of TTT forma SL bars, an american classic seatpost, a Ritchey pro stem, and a 20mm profile carbon head set spacer for $50 including 2 day shipping.

I noticed the parts you bought are mostly out of fashion these days (unless you don't believe the bike stuff industry is a lot about fashion). I am sure these items are going really slow before the sale. For someone who doesn't care, it may be a good deal.
out of fashion?.... what the ?RaiderMike

Whats fashionable about handlebars, stem, and a seatpost? Sounds to me like decent stuff, should he add some sequins, and maybe some glitter to be more fashionable? Are you one of those guys who puts his bike on his car rack, and hangs out at starbucks hoping to attract some attention in your cycling shorts? Most people cycle to stay in shape, not to impress others with their "fashion" sense. Fashion is for the mall partner!

I have dealt with them 5-6 times. Once they sent me the wrong item, but was exchanged. Another time, they disregarded my comments on the order and shipped some miserable small item to me when the key items were out of stock. The worst time was when their prices increased a couple of days AFTER I ordered by phone, and I was charged the high price; when I called to complain, they basically said, "the new price applies, leave it or take it." Maybe the customer service rep had a bad day, but my impression of CC is down the drain.
Wow. Opposite experience here.Sintesi

I've made quite a few purchases through them including my bike (guess which one :) ) and NO problems, mistakes, delays, etc. . . Flawless really. Not to rub it in, but when I bought my bike @ $1800 the price dropped $200 about a month month later. I called and asked for a credit and the nice kid went and asked his boss, and when he got back on the phone? "No problem, sir." Been hooked ever since. You can get great deals from time to time by constantly checking the closeout section. By the way the warehouse sale did blow. Everything was xtra small or xxl, eh?

...not even worth the bother until they upgrade. Takes much less time to call, IF you find something for a decent price.
