If the VC fueled buying spree doesn't work out...there's always this new fangled place called eBay

Before they had the website & mostly sold on ebay, they were fairly aggressive buying on Denver and Boulder CL. Like offering $200-300 more than asking for the give-away priced Ti or carbon road bike. Have no idea if they still buy off CL. I have no problem with the above tactic.

tee hee...

BTW-just went in there to grab some wheel boxes and they have, 3 high storage, probably 4-5 rows, maybe 100 feet long...STACKED with bike boxes, each one with a bike in it. NOT manufacturer's boxes but TPC boxes..I don't think they are hurting for inventory to sell.

For the locals … almost identical revenue and employee numbers as McGuckin Hardware.
