Specialized glasses - oops!

Hi all

I bought some Specialized glasses yesterday in a moment of weakness. I blatantly can't afford them though. I am supposed to be trying to sort my money out! I just phoned CycleSurgery and they said they would happily refund them if unused. Well, I wore them home and don't think I'd like to try and pass them off as unworn. They are a day old and I have the receipt - would anyone like to take them off my hands at a slight discount? I paid £89.99 for them.

Thought I would put them on here before resorting to eBay.

Style: Specialized Uracco
Colour: TI
Lens: Road/Adaptalite/NXT

If you bought them online, the Distance Selling Regulations mean that you have up to 7 days to examine and check the goods and that you can reject them at any time in that period. Examining them would require you to put them on!

Cycle Surgery also seem to be expensive, if they are the same ones that JE James have at £63.99.

Nice glasses, though, I can understand the temptation.
 
Yep. Adaptalites are good all-round glasses. I have just bought another pair of Miura as I decided to make a sandwich of my last pair...a face/glasses/tarmac sandwich unfortunately. :smile:
Uracco are a nice 'casual' design too - but I never wear glasses off the road :smile:

Hi Norm, no I bought them instore unfortunately - hence the price.

Ashtons99, thanks for the bid. Am considering bids at the moment but may be persuaded to keep them given the good reviews. What a dummy paying over the odds in the shop :smile:

Couldn't you clean them, put them back in the box or whatever they came in? A bit naughty, but they are almost new!:smile::smile:

Yeah I know - girl on the phone said "as long as they haven't been opened or used" - which they have

Well that's what I've been trying to do... - really hard to get them completely clean - when you hold them up to the light!
Maybe you could chance them as they are - if the staff notice, say they must have got like that when you checked they were suitable for your needs, "Sorry, my hands must have been a little greasy..." or something. Chances are they won't notice anyway.:smile:

Thanks Norm! That is a v good and fair offer. I will have a final think on it today and get back to you tonight. Unless any other bids come in :tongue:

TBH I would rather do it this way - more honest.

No worries.

I was cogitating this thread when walking the dog at lunchtime (as I posted in another thread) and my eyeballs started to hurt because it was sooooo cold. I hope that the offer didn't make my previous post about the same glasses being cheaper elsewhere seem like a dodgy tactic to knock the price down. :smile:

I've been contemplating the Spesh glasses for a while, which is why I jumped on your thread when I saw it. :smile:
