Sold! Thanks for the tip. Will be interesting comparing these Assos bibs to the Castelli Free Aeros.

I have both and the Assos bib chammy in my 85kg opinion a lot more comfortable than the Castelli Free's. I do prefer the Free's fit both are large, but the Castelli is more of a snug fit than the Assos. I am considering grabbing a medium in the Assos bib as the large fits, just it's not tight.

I don't need a pair of the bib-short but I need to try Assos at some point. I went to see other website prices to see if they are worth a punt at the T7 price. Then at Wiggle I noticed the price match option! I've requested a Price match to see if I can get a further 10% off the torpedo7 price! If they have your size at T7 ping wiggle a price match email and see what happens.

I'm not sure if the Hyperactive fabric tops will wear as well as the Intercool when used with a backpack, but could suit some:

Thats annoying, bought one a month ago for just over twice that.

What's the special? I used the auto-$30 off orders over $250 yesterday, but that appears to have gone (or they've flagged me as already used up that promo with a cookie)

That is not cheap.
Bookdepository.co.uk has that for $13.21 http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/book/9780224060875/Its-Not-About-the-Bike And free shipping, you just need to wait 9 or so days.

Still not cheap. They should pay us if we buy that book (just kidding!)

UPDATE - Pi55 poor effort from Wiggle.

I sent an email with all the required detail, containing all the required information, it even included a screen shot of my Torpedo7 basket with the Large Black knicks. I checked Wiggle to confirm stock and they had 4 pairs of Large Black in stock when I sent my Price Match request.

Recieved an email from Wiggle querying what product I wanted to price match! reitterated my requirements.

Then received this,

I told them that was unacceptable given they had stock when I requested the Price Match. Response from Wiggle.

I think they pulled the stock to not make a loss on their $190 price. The other major UK retailers will now be getting my preference regardless of price.

Clif bars, $16.24 for 12

That's $1.50/g of carb, and a bit of good protein and electrolytes thrown into the mix for good measure

I can understand why you might be disappointed with Wiggle. I do think you're being cynical though, but maybe you're right. It'd be my view that Wiggle wouldn't be bothered saying a product is out of stock to save maybe a loss of maybe a couple thousand dollars. As in, I doubt they carry a lot of ASSOS inventory at any point in time, so they're not going to lose much if they make a loss on a fair proportion of their inventory.

And a business as big as Wiggle... They'd be more interested in moving the stock and getting the cash flow back rather than the profit p/item anyway.

But having said that - and assuming you are right - shifting your preferences based on this incident? I mean, come on, expecting them to pricematch (and 10% further off) when the pricematch is against a firesale (T7 bought all that stock from the Aus ex-distro)... I mean, judging by all the exclamation points and "see how you go" in your OP... you knew that was a cheeky request!

But seriously, Wiggle are running out of stock or have limited stock of stuff all the time. Right now I need a pair of gloves. It feels like I'm banging my head against a wall. All the good, cheap, plain black gloves are sold out in medium and large. And that's typical. So it's not unlikely they plum sold out of your preferred size/colour bibshorts...

If you're suspecting them of removing stock so they don't have to honor price matches, I guess you could see if they did it again on another items. Take a screen grab of how much was in stock for all the items, then ask them for price checks on those multiple items, see if the the stock then becomes "unavailable".

You'd have pretty good evidence that shows that it's more than coincidence that multiple items all of which you queried for price match are now all out of stock?

A lot of web stores do this so they don't have to honor price matching. I should know, I used to work in the sports ragtrade and our ecommerce sites were fantastic at modifying stock levels.

Not really cheeky, they spell out the T&C's not me. I sent a ligitimate price match request, them not honouring it is cheeky (as shown below from alexander, it does happen). I'll keep my eye on their ASSOS stock levels.

Tried again with a set of speedplay zero pedals. $137 from Ribble with free shipping and BRIT10 10% off code. Wiggle offer to price match at the same price as Ribble? I've responded asking where the beat by 10% has gone? Another delay tactic until they tell me they are out of stock! Keep you posted.

BINGO! Speedplay Zero Stainless pedals for $123.62 from Wiggle.

After much back and forth and explaining their own price match policy to them they honoured the price match minus 10%! Happy Days (finally) :D

On the Wiggle price match - I received the promotion of price match and beating by 10%.

Here are the Wiggle Price Match Details for Australians.

They say T&Cs apply - but if it works for you, then great.
