DNG #24: Shopping and Cycling

I mentioned in an earlier post that triathlon can Here’s the booty that got shipped last week.

DHL free shipping FTW

Nice hefty box from Chain Reaction Cycles, or better known amongst the cycling fraternity as CRC.

The contents (clockwise from top left):
– X-tools hex keys (a.k.a. Allan keys)
– Zefal water bottle (clear)
– Zefal water bottle (red)
– High5 hydration pack
– Shimano chain
– Shimano Ultegra 6700 (10-speed) 11-25t cassette
– Shimano SPD-SL SM-SH11 cleats
– Finish line wet bicycle lubricant
– Dirt wash citrus degreaser

Shipping was free, so all this for $$161.49. May sound like a lot/little depending on how familiar you are with bikes and online shopping, but that’s almost $100 cheaper than retail. Much as I want to support local bike shops (LBS), all the savings do add up. I try to make up for it by taking the bike in to install the components I’ve bought, or for some servicing. Now hat’s something you can’t buy online. A least, not yet. 🙂
