Tire Discount / Group Buy

hey guys / gals,
With track days and racing next year I will probably be going through tires a little quicker then usual. So lets get this together and get some tires on cheap. right:

Re: Would anybody be up for a group buy on something like knee pucks?

Jason,
If you put together a list of what you want to do a group buy on I can put it together for you.
BTW, I'm leaving for Hallett tomorrow morning for the CMRA races and won't be able to put it together till I get back on Tuesday next week.

Thanks Patrick, I need to get with you when you get back anyways. I am ready to get my race plastics and need to find out what you would charge for prepping the bike for CMRA. Safety wiring and that sort of stuff. right:

Really? You are possibly trying to drag your knee to much but, the ones I have liked so far are the ones I got from Patrick. Main reason I liked them is because I could keep flipping them around until they where completely gone. Instead of loosing just one edge and then being useless.

Yes! Knee Pucks and how about Race Tires!

Patrick- I know Brad mentioned something to you at Cresson a couple of weeks ago about tires...

How many do you need to represent a "Group Buy?"

Re: Would anybody be up for a group buy on something like knee pucks?

I just ordered some pucks actually... My pucks last me. I used the same pair all year. So i'm not really in dire need of pucks..


I'd be down for the tire idea though! come race time I will be needing some new ones and gettin them at a good price couldn't hurt right:

Re: Would anybody be up for a group buy on something like knee pucks?

Atruro,
Read the latest RRW test on them they pretty much ruled, also good enough for Ronnie to be 1st and 2nd in the points in 3 series on his 636!

Gonna be at Hallett and offline for the next few days after this post, if you guys get at least 6 sets put together I'll get you hooked up,.
Get back to you all next week. Might be able to do something really well for Ohlins and Yosh also if you all are interested, probably other stuff as well, typically going toneed 6-10 orders to be able to get an awesome price break!
Thanks,

Patrick
