The batteries in my bikes are due for replacement, three years old .

At $29 I want to put one on the shelf , just in case. Their shipping is $20 and with that added to your cost, it's now more than a good Gruber battery made there in Phoenix @ $43

Shipping cost, usually gets in the way of a good battery price .
Three years ago, I got four 22 AH batteries delivered to my home for $140, no shipping cost, been looking all day for a similar deal, no luck .
Looks like Gruber will get my business this year .

Hello,
I don't know in the US, but here in France I had luck buying at a local battery shop. I was looking all the Internet and found prices quite low. But shipping made them be a little above the local shop. And they had it in stock so I went back with the battery .....
Sometimes it pays to give business to the local guys...
