Last page in the SIS gel site has 50% off for some flavors ... that said some companies discount old stock so the expire date comes up quickly ... I have never used SIS products going to order some of the 50% of ones. : ) thanks...

That is true, but they last well past their best before date. Certainly worth getting when highly discounted.

They seem pretty expensive though.
SIS box of six gels in cherry were $4.80, box of 30 tropical are $52.
That $52 is the normal full price but none ever pay it

Was same on last batch I wanted box of 30 was $52 I found it for $35 & free shipping at The Feed

Usually once your on the SIS Mailing list you will see sales weekly
Also Chain Reaction blows them out often for great prices.

Unfortunately shipping costs from TheFeed are brutal outside US. I only order from them when I can have it shipped to our PO Box just across the border. Looking forward to it being opened again.

Yes same for me as I am outside the continental US so I left it in basket
Later got an email asking why I told them & they shipped free USPS Priority

I'd prefer the actual frameset over a carton box to be fair.

Concur and 49cm if beggars can be choosers. Just saying. 🤣

In other news, I just received 2x Speedplay Zero Walkable Cleats (Wahoo seems to have them on near backorder according to my LBS) plus a bit more Rock'n Roll Gold (almost enough onhand now to fill a kiddy splash pool).

Woot! New saddle day!
Specialized website lists it at 134g, so for it to come in at 129g is a nice surprise. (I know, 5g whoop-de-doo. But this is WW...)
