Close outs, USA, Euro...what ever, who has the best deal?

Any problems running these shoes with speedplay pedals?

Thanks

I bought a pair of Sidi Energy SDS on-line from Saddlesore (a UK based shop) - final price w/shipping $149 US. The Genius were somewhere around 110 US.

Like you, I have spent some time looking at websites for a Sidi deal. I'd swear there is some price-fixing going on, or maybe everyone is selling them at wholesale cost...nah, can't be.
I'm just going to keep an eye on the LBS, but if someone else finds a deal, please let us in!

Check at totalcycling too. You should be able to get the energy for about 120 and the genius for about 90. The price fix is in by veltecsports by the way. They set the prices you sell sidi for in the us, and if you don't, you don't get deliveries from veltech anymore. They are the exclusive importer by the way, so you see how it happens. Don't you love it when an american company tries to hamstring the sport fighting to survive in our country with bs like that. They also import colnago and look too.

I learned a long time ago to just buy Look and Sidi stuff in Europe. Even with the extra shipping cost it does not even come close in price. i could buy 3 Look pedals for the price of one in the US and nearly 2 pairs of SIDI's for the price of one pair in the US.

I know this has been covered many times but its worth repeating: www.totalcycling.com, zonabici.com and even prendas.co.uk are all good sites for ordering Euro gear. Sometimes prices are so much lower then the lbs that you wonder if they are the same product. I ordered some pedals for $79 that retailed for $160 at my lbs.....

I agree that exclusive distributors are killing the US market
