So I went to a local bargain center and found some BMX parts DIRT CHEAP. (They had a bunch of road and some MTB stuff too, I think a shop went out of business and they snagged it up)

Got Demolition Momentums for 14.99 each Tan Walls in 2.20 Retail is 23.99
Got an Odyssey Pivotal seat for 14.99 Red Retail is 29.99
Got Primo Binary PC pegs for 17.99 for a PAIR-clear&red Retail is 17.99 EACH
Got some Bike Aid lube for 2.59 Retails for 9.99

Retail is about 124, I paid 70.

I basically paid 56% of retail.

So stoked!

Yea, I wasn't gonna get the tires but the deal was too good. I was looking into Machetes.

I didn't need pegs, but again, too good of a deal.

Same with the seat honestly.

Sounds like a great deal

Some good deals I've got in the past are:
Odyssey Aitken Railed Seat for £10 was £32
Eclat Webster Seat for £10 was £30
Demolition Railed Post for £10 was £30
Stolen Cell Bars for £20 was £50
Animal GLH Tyres for £10 each was £25? each
Primo V-Monster Tyres for £12 each was £22? each
Subrosa Villicus Grips for £4 was £8
Odyssey Beringer Grips for £3 was £8
Odyssey Banton Grips for £3 was £8
Seventies Linear Cables for £3 each was £8 each
Stolen Insider Headset for £10 was £30
Blank Biohazard Frame for £80 was £200
Altogether that is £190 compared to £498 if I had bought all of it at the retail price. That's 38%.

I've got even better deals used as well.

It's probably because when I buy parts I don't go for a particular part, I just find a good deal on a part I like. So for example if I was looking for Bars I wouldn't go for my ideal set of bars, instead I'd look around and if I see a pair I like for a good price, I buy them and if I have money spare I buy more parts. What's also helpful is that the parts I tend to like, such as Railed Seats and thin tyres are unpopular so they are easy to find cheap.

They had Odyssey Aaron Ross tires in Red with tanwall for 18 each. Would've bought them if they were black tires. Too much red otherwise haha.

I won a contest a few years back and got bars, all the DVDs and a crap ton of stickers from animal.

I bought stuff off ebay for cheap, S&M bars, a Profile wheel, Profile cranks and so on.

Found a set of Profile wheels for 100 bucks on Craigslist once. Super good deal.
