    Fizik Carbon Road Seatpost on Amazon

    This must be a mistake that will be corrected in the morning, but I just bought a Fizik Carbon Seatpost, 27.2 x 270mm, for $11.69.

    I'm guessing someone at BikeSomeWhere is going to be hating life very soon.

    Felt a little scummy buying them, but I am pretty sure they will catch it and adjust the price before processing these orders.

    heh heh, I ordered 4. We'll see if this works out. Once there was a mistake in a listing for sram branded swissstop yellow brake pads and they had to honor it.

    Mine was cancelled at 7:23am PST. And the only option on Amazon now doesn't even have the seatpost diameter listed.

    Ah, well. I figured that would happen. Still good for a chuckle.

    Sorry to rain on your parade guys, but I'm a little relieved I didn't miss out here. I was just thinking about this seatpost, and disheartened when the link was updated. Yeow. Wow.

    Keep us posted on weather or not they will/must honor the original price.

    They'll cancel all of the orders. No harm, no foul. They have the right to correct the mistake.

    I didn't order one but I would be a little pissed if I did and they didn't honor it. Don't you/they enter into a binding contract to buy/sell the item when you click the "buy" button? Seems like since it was advertised at that price, they should have to honor those sales otherwise face some truth in advertising/false advertising issues.

    Well they finally canceled my order.....i called amazon out of curiosity and was told the company canceled because they ram out of stock. I questioned this, because the same item was still up doe sale at the $143 price.

    They informed me that it has been listed by another company and that they could not honor the original price because it is two separate vendors with two varying prices....so I said it seems shady that one store(bike somewhere) runs our of stock and another store (niagara cycle works) immediately Posts up the same item, were they sure they were not the same seller?

    They told me they weren't, but if or was coming from amazons warehouse, they would have honored the price.

    I have a hard time believing that they ran out of stock. Maybe that's what they have to tell Amazon to avoid any penalties.

    I'd be willing to bet they didn't sell a single post at the $11.69 price.
