    If they're already discontinued, they weren't really serious about it. They just got a deal on a few skids of cheap pedals and slapped their name on it quick. They apparently shipped without boxes and were sent in bubble envelopes!

    Unfortunately, unless someone recycles the aluminum case for something.

    Or, the wires could be burned in fires so poor African kids can sell scrap copper for pennies, and their mums can use old PCBs for cooking fuel.

    Ugh, I watched a documentary on it the other day....it was heartbreaking and a little sickening. The ENTIRE landscape of this village and the surrounding countryside was our old phones, monitors, fans, toasters, dvd players, and all the other stuff we "recycle". As far as the camera eye. Here's the recycling depot, vulnerable children among the scavenger workers.

    Ok, I'm the gullible type!

    Is this cig ad real, of just a funny ( or biting maybe) parody?

    ( I was a big-time, heavy smoker, loved it- but quit in 1989. So could think this is real)

    Yeah its really a crime what goes on with "recycling" plenty of recyclables end up at dumps in 3 world countries and pollute the water and land around it. It really unfortunately ends up from the person who is recycling say a TV or Air conditioner once it has been dropped for recycling, out of sight out of mind and ends up somewhere as stated above

    They aren't even in alphabetical order. How can they find the right one?

    My point was that they're only available from one place for $19. That, being Sweetwater.
