Velomacchi PSA

Just a heads up for anyone looking to shell out for some of the gear Velomacchi puts out. Definitely wait a few months after the release, and watch the prices fall off a cliff before buying. Because only then will it be remotely considered a good value.

I purchased their 28L rolltop bag (Speedway) when it came out at a price of $339, and had a little buyer's remorse but its turned out to be a really great bag which I use nearly every day. About 2 months after the release, Velomacchi put out a 40% off EVERYTHING code. Then it looks like in November they permanently dropped the price of this bag to $269, and now they're offering a 30% discount code off everything again which makes the bag $188. Nearly half off in less than 6 months. I did some light digging and it looks like the same result for their big duffel version of the bag.

If I felt like a dope before dropping $300+ on a bag, I feel like a straight up idiot now. Hope others don't make the same mistake.

Don't be so hard on yourself. So you can't predict the future. Join the club.

I would snail mail a hand written note to their customer service. You probably won't get a refund, but they may give you a real deal on the next thing you buy.

Yeah you're right, thanks. I did at least get a really nice bag out of it!

Velomacchi does seem like one of the smaller moto-gear companies, I guess there's a chance they might work with me.

What's the 30% code? It's only $269 when I try to order.
