Impulse Buying or Good Investment

Well the other day I found that "Torpedo7" was having a warehouse sale and they had primo stricker PC pedals on sale for $3 each. So I quickly bought 10 of them.
This should last me quite a while.

Do you think that this was a good investment or just impulse buying?
Also has anyone else done something else like this before?

Impulse. But you could make some cash off this. Done it. They had donuts on sale for ¢10 each. Gave em a twenty. We had to bring some high schooler's truck. Got so sick. Worth it.

Ahahahhaahhaah That's great. But yeah I was going to use them for myself.
I hate having to spend $20 on a single set and i seem to break pedals easily though

I'd. Say it's an investment you can flip em for like 10 each and make a $7 profit on them

That's what i did with the odyssey sale, unfortunately no ones really bought anything -__________-

You'll have to like them now LOL They're pretty good. A PC pedal is just like any other pedal really.

Sounds like an impulse buy that could be turned into an investment if you choose to sell some.

I would have bought 2-3 pairs only. 10 is way too much.

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.

Sounds like youre set haha. If youre into unsealed plastics and theyre not clear (clear plastic blowsss), then youve got a bunch of backups and you wont have to buy pedals for a long time. Majority of plastics are the same. Same material, axle, bearings, etc. So they should hold up just as well as say, Odyssey Twisteds, Duo Resilites, etc.

You COULD sell them for $10 a pair and make a good amount of profit. If you think about it though, every $7 youll be making will just be $10-20 that you will have to spend later on.

Depending on when you replace them, you could always resell them and get your money back. If you replace them as soon as the pins wear/break off, you could add metal pins to them and sell them for like $5 a pair to some kids. If you ride them till they break then thats not really an option, but you could always keep the good parts left from the broken pedals and sell them for a few bucks to someone who broke a different part of their pedal.

I found the other day when i opened up each box that i got 5 sets of plastic and 5 sets of sealed alloy pedals all in pink.
Pretty dam happy with this but I called Torpedo7 anyways to make sure that they don't want me to pay extra nad they said no its fine, they thought they were out of stock ages ago anyways.

So i'm set for life and a half now hahaha
