Campione has been slowly liquidated over the last few weeks. Most of the prices have been way to high to make checking out the auction worth while, even at 50% off retail. $250 for an obslete stem is alomst worse than some of the posts on Craigslist. Best to wait for the auction on May 30th 2013 unless you relish the idea of paying top buck for obsolete or obscure road bike parts. 175mm Dura Ace Octalink triple for 500$ any takers? From what I gleaned during my visit last week most things will be sold off in lots. I'm sure craigslist will be swamped with magnesium Deda 1" threadless, Nitto chromoloy trakc drops and Gippemme wheelsets in no time. Check out more details and some photos here
I'm pretty sure that bikes out numbered cars on the ferry back from Galliano island this weekend. BC Ferries needs to respond to this demand, especially on long weekends by offering better service and amenities to cyclists. A few things that would be a great help, would be an option to reserve a spot on the ferry and some type of rack to store bikes in. As you can see, with the high volume of cyclist, space on the deck is at a premium. Bikes have been stacked on top of one another. Not only is this inconvenient, it can also scratch the paint and damage components . For the extra money I pay to take my bike on the ferry vs. walking on a bit of service would go a long way.
