    I'm $140 shy of free shipping on a QBP order...

    what the hell should I buy?
    I guess more tires are a good direction...but I already have 2 brand new Minions to use up.
    Wear items?
    I've got extra chains, brake pads, cassettes, derailleurs, cables, grips, saddles, tubeless valves, Stan's, and extras of all that for wifey's bike.
    A lot of the existing order is tools.
    Thoughts?

    They don't have a ccdb inline in my size yet...

    Better buy a new bike... just to make sure you clear that $140 threshold.

    Why would you buy anything from that rip-off outfit?

    Pay the shipping and save whatever is left for when there is something you actually want/need.

    I stand by my original statement. Add a new bike. Better safe than sorry.

    Ok, you’re right. N+1 always wins. My bad, and guilty of that for sure.

    How much is shipping? If it's $20, don't spend $140 to save $20 to get free shipping - waste of time and money.
