Got everything stolen out of the back of my truck last night (helmet, pants, goves, jersey , you name it) while sleeping (smashed window, car alarm woke me up but they got away by the time i ran out of the house). Huge bummer. live in San Francisco. Looking for a good shop to buy new gear to ride this weekend. I remember going to a shop down around San Jose which had a pretty good selection (not sure about prices)may have been on Cesar Chaves or something. Any know the name of that shop or one with a decent selection in the bay area?

Cycle Gear on 280 and Meridian ave in SJ has some decent prices. I usually shop there last. If your not in a hurry http://www.rockymountainmc.com has some great prices, shipping is free for over 100 bucks

Total bummer man, know how ya feel. Some freaking drunk punk stole my daughters xr70 a few days after I got it for her. We got it back though, but 300 bucks later in damage. This pin head pled not guilty, even though the report states he ran from the cops becouse he did not want to get busted drunk with a stolen bike.

agree about rocky mountain. i ordered some ARC pants, torq jersey,ARC gloves, Bieffe helmet, total cost, 182$ no shipping and i had it in 3 days. plus when i got the gloves, too small, called em up and they paid for shipping there and back to replace them. again, my .02 bummer about the theft though.

Rocky or Cycle gear your best bet. Ive got a cycle gear down here and they are within a buck or two of the cheapest stuff ive seen in the mags. Decent selections also at Cycle Gear.

www.bobscycle.com is having a special deal on O'neal Hardware pants/shirt/gloves for $137.

Hard to beat that for top-o-the-line gear even with overnight shipping.

SK funny you mention Oneal, I was talking to the owner of the pit stop in hollister, he was telling me Oneal is pretty much done. He was saying they are getting to the point of folding,

I dont know what this has to do with the post but, then again, I post some pretty outrages replys anyway

chapparal has gear packs on sale.....

Thor phase 3

pants: $72
jersey: $25
gloves: $15
boots: $90

Good luck man and sorry to hear about your bad luck. The crackheads probably don't even know it's gear, they think it's club wear. Just go to the local swapmeet, you'll probably be able to buy everything back for like $20 bucks.

There is a Cycle Gear store in SF, at the corner of 3rd and Townsend (a block from PacBell park). Also in SF is Scuderia West on Duboce near Market St. If you get out to the East Bay go check out iMoto in Livermore and talk to Erich. Skips at Carnegie also has some good deals.

In San Jose there is a Cycle Gear and a shop called Road Rider. Road Rider does carry moto gear and they have a great selection.

No offense vegas, but you couldn't pay me to order from Crapparal !! I can call them the same day I get there new catalog and everything I order will be on back-order. Typically when you buy gear or parts, your ordering 4-5 items at a time. I've NEVER ordered from Crapparal because each time I've started to place an order, at least half the items I've asked for were on back order. I realize this has little to do with this post, but man I hate Crapparal and I feel I must enlighten the world about them !!!

Interesting, I talked to Jim O'neal in mid April and he was on his way to buy more cargo vans for the company. All was positive with him and pro rider rep Charlie F. I'll ask around.

First lesson in Buisness, never never ever let anyone know that the ship is sinking.

Always portait a positive outlook.

The guy I spoke to stated that Oneal is asking for payments up front = Sure Sign of Debt
also orders are secured paid then sent out = No Cash flow

We just had a meeting Friday in the company I work for.
Tell tail signs your in bad situation Key Words
Refocusing
Restructing
Commitment to the board and share holders (BIG ONE)

and so on.
Oneal is just having cash flow worries, buying new equipment is budgeted and placed in motion months back...

Dont mean to start off on a diff thread.. But

Thanks for all the help. Actually got some good stuff at Fox on Saturday, super cheap. Spent the rest of the day going store to store and pretty much replaced everything but my Alpinestars Tech 8's, will be using my old beat up Tech 6's till next pay check. Or hopefully my insurance will come though with a check.
