Mine had the same Pro Setup line on the invoice but it just said "Free" instead of a price on my invoice. There was a little question mark that you could click with a popup and this was the only text pertaining to the any setup stuff. The rest of it was about shipping and such.

"Complete Bike Setup
Forbidden complete bikes are shipped 90% assembled and require some technical knowledge as well as mechanical skills in order to properly and safely assemble. We’ve created a manual to help walk you through the steps required to get your new bike up and running. "

Ive emailed them to ask what is going on. I helped them correct their math earlier when they said Dreadnoughts were 45% off. 30% off plus an additional 15% off is not 45%......

"Pro setup" on my handlebar order was for shipping fees. Couldn't resist getting some Burgtec bars at 73% off + 15% off, but I was able to resists getting a Dreadnought framset.

Ah. Thats where that comes from. $9.95 for small parts shipping. Mystery solved, yet still a bit confusing.

Just bought one of those Knollys, super boost be damned it checks all the other boxes and the price is insane right now. Really excited to have a hardtail again for riding down here.

Great deals on NF designs. Apparently legal issues with the old logo had then blowing out stock at 50% off

Also, a little known tidbit about 5:10's that I recently learned from a buddy is that the Addidas outlet in Richmond (or maybe Tsawassen? Can't remember) has 5:10 shoes at half off. So if you need to try stuff on, then head out there if you have patience for suburban style parking lots!

If it is Tsawassen Mills you're in luck - that mall & parking lot are super spacious and super empty. All. The. Time.  I also find it incredibly bizarre that for every 4 or 5 stores there is a place that rents ride-on toys/vehicles just to get around the mall.

Its not Tsawassen Mills, its the McArthurGlen outlets near the airport in Richmond.

Long pined for a vest like the  Chilco.

Bah, wasn’t meant to be. The Chromag Wideangle I ordered was oversold and is not available in black pearl. Dave called to make it right, however I’m not overly high on the impala color offered. So, gonna keep on with the steel hardtail I have

So instead I might invest in some shorter cranks and/or suspension service/tuning on the fork. Some new shoes sounds good too

ooof, good deals at Dunbar right now if you're after Hope gear, cheapest Tech4E4s this side of pretty much anywhere, including the UK. Pro4 hubs going for almost half price as well.

Still trying to convince myself on a Chromag - leaning more to Rootdown than Stylus as I can pull the front end off and run my Warden mullet if I want to. Waffling on a M/L vs a L. Only one more day for the sale.
