- Luxury Item – where's cheapest?
- Jon TaylorSubscriber
So I’ve got the really expensive hobby. Like really expensive. Most people in this developed country sit on benches drinking cider but I’m doing pretty well in life so have a really expensive hobby.
So I could make do with what I’ve got but I’m determined to spend my heard earned (I say “heard earned” but actually spend all my working day on STW complaining about intrusive ads that might get me fired).
So I’ve decide that this new oojimaflip that the magazines are bigging up and the hype wagon has squeezed into my wood-stove smoke-infused brain is what I really want. After all, everyone on Pinkbike says they can’t believe how much better their life is with this awesome piece of kit. It’ll really finish off my steed, complete my quiver.
So where can I get it cheapest? I’m not fussed about how helpful the staff are because I’m going to buy online, I’m not going to read any reviews because it’s all made up… and it absolutely has to be the cheapest.
I’ll cry like a baby when they don’t dispatch it immediately and scream like hell when it breaks and they don’t have the resource to run an efficient warranty service, but hell, I’m the customer and I’m always right. Anyone charging more than the absolute minimum (even if that’s below their wholesale price) is a bastard profiteering capitalist and I’m not going to shop there.
So where’s cheapest?

Packet of hobnobs to the staff at your lbs will see you right, even for a new frame, I’d you’re managing the relationship right.Posted 4 years ago
When I take in a packet I not only receive a price match with the best online deal- even if it’s going to be less than trade- :wink:I also get a free coffee.
Support your lbs, and they’ll support you, even if it hurts.
Best quid pro quo I can think of.
