Just like it says. Who has the best prices on riding gear?
I don't have anything other than helmet and goggles. I don't need the best just something to protect me when I bust my butt!

Try Bob's or MAW, check for closeouts. I got a nice pair of AXO pant for less than 50 bucks (about 125 new). I've delt with both. Neither has given me any hassle with returns and delivery was timely. If I were you, I'd stay away from Parts Direct. I tried to order something from them once, they waited three days after I placed the order to tell that the item was not in stock (when I placed the order, they told me it was in stock). I called about a week later to see where my order was and they hadn't even sent it yet. Of course, I cancelled the order. Recently, a friend ordered a part, when he found out the part would not fit his bike, he sent the unopened box back. They charged him a 20% restocking fee and would only give him store credit for the balance. (ouch). Good luck. :)

You can also go to some of the manufacturs website and get closeout direclty. Ebay has some deals sometimes if you don't mind going that route.

I picked up a brand new set of fox 360 pants, and a matching fox fx jersey a while back off of ebay (through a store) for $110 bucks (Total w/ shipping included). The pants new around here are $150 alone.

mc closeouts has msr system x pants for 35 and the rage cotton jerseys for 15. I like the cotton better because it doesn't feel kind of sticky when I get sweaty and I can wipe my goggles off with it. The poly jerseys just smear the dirt around the lens.

I ordered the 2002 Answer Stylus Jersey and Pants from mccyclecloseout.com today for 59.00 shipped to my house. They are blue to match the bike. Think I got a good deal? I feel like I did.

Yup. Rusty (the main guy/owner) is pretty cool. That's a little better than the deal I got as the prices have come down in the last month or so. :)
