Buying an Edge off Ebay (A link to Pauls blog )

This is a link to Pauls blog about buying an Edge off Ebay.
As you can see he got his for a bargain price.

I used a similar tactic to get one of the Garmin Mapsource Metro maps.
Edge 205 and 305,s are starting to be discounted now with the new 605 and 705 due any day now so you shouldn’t be paying full price for an Edge.

  1. Hi Frank,

    Not sure about “605 and 705 due any day now “, it looks like they’re delayed until at least Q1 2008. And knowing the release forecast dates for consumer electronics, that’s bound to slip in reality. I would be surprised if we get our greasy mitts on them in the UK before Spring 😦

    Here’s hoping, though.

  2. Dave, I’ve been on a few sites that are taking orders for December delivery. In the meantime I’m looking to buy the Forerunner 50 HRM to log the spinning classes. It works with tha cadence sensor too. It’ll be a good way to compare classes.
    Just had another outlet saying Jan 2008 and the Forerunner 50 is in the post.

  3. Hi Frank,

    I stay away from ‘pre-ordering’, it’s just a mechanism for retailers to guage interest for a new product.
    What can happen is that when it eventually becomes available you’ll end up being pipped to the post by another retailer with better ordering systems that didn’t have a pre-order facility.

    I’m going to be watching froogle et-al like a hawk, I really want this shiney new toy ASAP – it’s the magpie instinct in me, I can’t help it!
