I've been saving up for a tri-bike for the past six months. I'd get a few extra dollars and put the money in an envelop. My guy would win some cash on a lottery scratcher and give it to me and I'd stick that money in the envelop. I'd take a little money from my paycheck (substitute teacher for Riverside Unified School District) and put that in the envelop, along with some payments from clients (certified personal fitness trainer/Train-n-Tri). My little stack of money was adding up. Adding up enough that when CyberMonday hit, I was ready.
TriSports had a fabulous deal on a Quintana Roo Dulce xs (a woman's specific tri-bike). The $2,299 bike was marked down to $1,150. I had my guy look over the specs on the components and he said they were good.
I pushed the buy button, entered my credit card information and pushed "Confirm Purchase."
Within minutes I received an order confirmation.
