any body got one of these over priced bastards?
We have a whole thread basically about trying to get one for under $225
I have one Geoff, not for sale, but if you need it for Daytona, you are welcome to borrow it.
Someone needs to make these things. I know there are some engineers on here. The prices are ridiculous!!!
LIke this at NT?
Geoff... I lent mine to DiSalvo and Harris for Daytona... I think they have 2 if you are in need... tell them Perrone said you could borrow one...
$225 shipped on ebay. Cheapest i could find.
Exactly!! These bastards should be $100.00
That's why many people use these. Other stores have them for even cheaper. I got tired of borrowing other people's at the track and got one finally. Sure they're not as nice as the aluminum ones, but they accomplish the same job.
Fold-it getting cheaper, unless there are additional shipping charges..... https://www.statelinetack.com/item/...GS1jz9A5Dx2r0H65shh4tsitx4JLwMTIaAgwbEALw_wcB
They add on shipping...its way more than buying thru amazon or similar.
Yeah, it came out to $235.18 shipped. $10-15 more than ebay.
I keep checking these cart threads thinking that somebody found them for a price that's reasonable
Here is the deal:
I am checking with a few vendors on “the other amazon” what their bulk prices are (me buying 50 of them)
Well, with a pretty unclear quality perspective and their pricing at around $100 (i keep lowballing them) plus shipping between $40 and $80 across the US once i have them, the gap to the original is not worth the hassle for me.
However, i am checking hinge designs and CF panels too. Thinking of an IKEA version to save on shipping and assembly cost
I"m all for saving money in this expensive sport, but, with $1400 shocks, $1500 forks, $1000 in tires in a weekend, etc....what's a mere $225 for a bad ass cart that will last a life time?
Asses are so tight around here, they squeak. NTTAWWT
Yeah, just the pictures of the alternatives made me go ummmm... nope. All said and done, a lesser product plus shipping would have ended up $50-80 short of a top notch product shipped (amazon)
Still, during some free time, i will keep olaying around with designs. Simple foldable rails and such...
Wouldn’t a well-rollable and possibly hitchable tire tree make sense as well?
Yes it would!
I'm going see see how much it would cost in materials this weekend to build a similar cart. I made a CAD model of a folding cart. Seems simple enough
