Keeping that 25% off alive

Definitely more than that, although I believe they have different price scales for those who work at dealers and those who just work in the industry. But I shouldn't post exact numbers

Yea, we have a dealer account setup, but havent started stocking them yet. They are obviously, for good reasons, prioritizing all previous stocking dealers for bike allocations before sending to new dealers.

It's considered very poor manners to give details for EP. In fact, in your EP contract you signed you agreed to never talk about it.

Be a bit careful yeah?

Transition are the boys. Not only did I get a nice deal on my sentinel, it's also honestly the best bike I've ever owned. It's about time I moved it on in order to stay on the fresh bike gravy train, but I just can't bring myself to part with the thing, it's too bloody good.

Best part about Transition is the answering machine. Those dudes are dang silly.

Transition's bikes are far more expensive than the other brands we carry, and more than most brands I've carried in the past at other jobs, and they're worth every penny. On my third one. Whenever I'm lured in to a lesser brand by better pricing I end up going right back to transition. They just click with me.
If they still made a good steel hardtail my stable would probably be all Transitions.

It's sort of devastating that customers and bike shop employees find different things cool.

Keep eyeing up middleburn cranks and I have to remind myself that I only like them because they're not 105. lol

I looked them up... Honestly the shape looks like it's from the 95 era, not the 2020 era. Like it might have been cool once, that time has passed.

I did a quick browse of CRC though and there's really not much good looking these days, like maybe the Campy Ekar 1x, but that's it's own niche thing that most people would never use. I guess they would be cool as something different vs the typical Shimano/SRAM look (although you can always get one of those spider chainrings for a 1x crankset for a gravel bike or something I guess (not that I can find an example right now though)).

It is! They look lovely on a nice surly build or something of that ilk.

They are from the 95(ish) era and they basically haven't changed shape since. Thats why they're cool lol
Probably a bit bendy by modern standards, but thats always the way with stuff that was the best 20 years ago. I'd still run a set on a trail bike or something though just cos theyre cool.
