I got these brand new boots yesterday from cyclemall.com for $78. They were that cheap because they were red and odd sizes on closeout. Oxtar TCS. I send them to get dyed black before I even wore them riding and I just got them back today. Here are the pics. Before and after.

Last one
It cost me $25 to get them dyed. I figured I would have pro do it so I wouldnt screw it up and it would have only save me like $5 if I did it myself.

They turned out great. Not bad for $100 spent. I tried getting in on the deal, but it was too late even at the place that had them for $100. I have a red bike so I was even willing to live with red.

You will love the boots in black, I do. If I were in your shoe, I would do what I did an get it done professionally. For 20-25 bucks you cant go wrong. The lady said she prepped them, used liquid dye on them, and then sprayed them with the spray dye.
Oh yeah, I wouldnt have thought that I could have gotten red ones to look that good all black either..
Let me know when you get them done.

The guy "Frank" who owns/runs cyclemall died in a car crash this last weekend. He was a real nice guy, a real pleasure to have met. I don't think that anyone else really worked with him, so I expect the site to stop taking orders on things. -- fyi

You can read about it on cyclemall.net (I assume you got them on cyclemall.net not .com as .com doesnt seem like anything)

OOPS! I didnt mean to write cycleMALL.. I meant cycleDEPOT.com
I was probably thinking about cycle mall from reading the posts...

Calm down there Gixxer man, not going to strike a pose yet, I want to get a bigger audience and then blow you all away. :lol :lol For the meantime, here is a pic of them again, I took of the oxtar name on the heels with some nail polish remover..

I just got my $78 Oxtars yesterday and they fit and look great. I also just recieved my RS TAICHI CARBONTRON gloves in the mail a day or two ago and they are nice! Not bad for $50. Just two great examples of the deals found while browsing the R1-Forum!!!!
