Anybody have an insight as to why you'd pay more for a pair of Black RS than a pair of White? Same fork, nothing differs except colour & £50 Price Tag...Got a response but not what I was expecting...

Nope! Exactly same Model as listed on a shop site. One price for Black a lower price for white...

A shop site? So 2 different sellers?

Got links?

I really don't have the answer to this? It's one seller & I'm not outing them here. Same Model & year date, 2012 in fact. But why the £50 difference just because I should choose Black or White? No difference at all except colour.

The fashion swingometer has swung back to black, so they don't need to discount them as they do the white.
What did the shop tell you?

What bull. More like a stock balancing act.

Looks like I'm up against it unless I make a call in the morning elsewhere. They do look cheapest by a mile...Just £50 more for Black only. Not spoken to them, so I'll see if they'll let me have them at the 'white price'... :lol:
