I finally got my order from wiggle and I got hit with taxes upon delivery.

I think they give a tracking number with free shipping when you order oversize items. My past two orders have been larger items ie bar and fork.

Frankly, that is not bad!

I'm sure you would have had to pay 1.5x more if you bought locally!

Placed an order yesterday morning to wake up to a 20% off discount (off entire purchase) if you buy anything from "dhb" over $50.

Emailed them for price adjustment so hope they do it or I'll be pissed.

I have a leatherman style multi-tool with bits to fit the different size hex/torx fasteners on my bike, tube and soon a co2 inflator.

I also keep the battery pack for my headlamp in my bag.

I installed my headlight and damn this thing is bright! Great bang for the buck with this light. I rode home my usual route, which is basically CX territory and the light didn't flicker once, unlike my last two I purchased for $25 and $50.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bicycle-Light-Flashlight-and-Headlight-Cree-XM-L-T6-LED-1800-Lumens-battery-/151016558091?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item232949ce0b
New headlight:
Spoiler!


Old headlight:

Spoiler!


The only thing I can fault the light on is the mounting bracket isn't the correct diameter for my handle bars. It's made for 1" bars but mine are 1.25" where I have to mount it.

Spoiler!


But after a couple strokes with a half round file...

Spoiler!

Thank you for your email. I am very sorry by the time I got to your email this order had already been processed and sent out to you, As the order has already been processed I am unable to amend the discount.

I think there are as many mountain bike/CX guys on here except they're hiding in the closet (or out riding when us roadies are too pussy to.)

I just don't see how they can't make a price adjustment after the order has been shipped out.

I've done that with so many other online companies before. The thing that pisses me off even more, is that he said it was shipped by the time he got to the email. There was 20 hours in between when I sent the email, and when I received a response.
