The reason(s) for this are:

Unfortunately the competitor does not have stock of the GPS. Conditions: Only identical items (including colour and size variations), in stock and available for immediate delivery/collection from an authorised UK retailer will be price matched.
So replied to their mail, will see what happens.

Just got an email from On One about a special they're having on their long sleeved merino tops. Reduced from c.€67 to c.€27. Delivery is around €6 though.

Cheers, seem to have a few tempting offers on baselayers and jerseys, I really need to avoid this thread in future

This looks like a tempting offer, what is the differences between the merino wool jerseys and the standard polyester ones.
Are there any benefits of one over the other ?

I have an urban frog ls merino base layer. Personally I find it regulates body temperature much better than polyester, wicks sweat better and also despite dogs abuse hasn't even the faintest whiff of anything nasty on it.

A few months back I was interested in an On One merino top so I tried to dig out some reviews. I found several positive ones and several that mentioned that the branded one, which I think is the one that you linked to, had shrunk significantly after a few washes. Of the small numbers of people that reported their experiences in one online thread it seemed like half of them had problems, the other half had none. Nothing definitive in that, unfortunately, but at 27euro it's an easier risk to take than at the RRP.

Incidentally, I have a Planet-X merino "jersey" that I've been using for commuting for a few months. It's been working out well for me but to my mind the quality of the merino wool itself isn't great (by comparison to some merino base layers that I have) and the fit is a bit "floppy". Though fine for commuting I wouldn't use it for a spin on the bike as the pockets I'd find useless (anything in the pockets would drag it all over the place) and when it gets wet it stays wet (not a problem if you remain warm of course but for a long spin I'm not sure I would). It's made with 250gsm merino wool, which makes it on the heavy side for any warm weather but fine for cold days. The website doesn't seem to say what weight of wool is used in the On One jersey, unfortunately. Niggles aside though, based on my experiences with the Planet X jersey 27euro for the On One jersey looks like very good value (for a commuting top).

I just had an online price match request rejected but I called them and they put it through. I had emailed best buy and they confirmed that they still have limited stock available.

The T&Cs for their price match are here: http://www.evanscycles.com/help/price-promise

I should probably buy you a pint aswell so.

just ordered the edge 500. There was no too-ing or fro-ing with emails. I submitted the price match form and couple of minutes later got a discount code.

Same for me, they sent me a code within 6 minutes. Now the only to-ing and fro-ing going on is me trying to decide if I need/want/can afford it.
