I paid $135 for a $329 trainer with the discount they had on the product plus an additional 20% for the Labor Day holiday.
I went to Nashbar to check the exact name of my trainer to share with this poster and noticed they were having yet another special: 72 items at 72% off.
I had a little money to spare so I decided to see what all I could buy for $30. Including shipping and tax, for $30.42 (OK, so I went a little over budget) I got the following items:
- A frame pack bag - $4.94
- Two pairs of Wigwam socks - $2.69
- A rack strap - $1.43
- A balaclava - $4.49
- A set of arm warmers - $5.04
- A 24 oz. water bottle - $2.51
- And a 2008 Tour de France water bottle - $1.34
When I got home from work this evening, my husband had put a box on the kitchen table. Before changing into my comfy clothes, I grabbed the nearest pair of scissors and began taking everything out of its packaging.
So, the burning question is, of course, which item am I most excited about? That answer is easy: the balaclava.
Though I looked like a clumsy ninja when I tried it on, it really is a practical piece of gear for cold weather running and biking and I've been eyeing them for a couple years.
If you're a triathlete or cyclist - heck, even a runner - you've got to check out Nashbar. They've got a good reputation, are very quick to ship and have incredible prices.
