Kinda not surprising. I've found web scrapers pretty hard to configure. They work for a while, then stop when the site redesigns something.
I think the other hard part for mth parts is the variation in naming protocol makes it hard to return all relevant productsKinda not surprising. I've found web scrapers pretty hard to configure. They work for a while, then stop when the site redesigns something.
Maybe I'll get bored enough searching for parts that I'll give it a crack.
For the most part there is only 3 or 4 sites to check for variations - then I just google the actual part and see if something happens to pop up.Speaking of bargains... How do people track prices/availability on various sites? Manually?
Anyone built a scraper to pull availability and pricing from crc/merlin/pushys/mtbdirect/etc.
Pushys would do well to simply hold onto your order for a week or two and consolitdate shipping knowing well that you will buy something else next week haha!Every time there's free shipping, I can't remember the small things I want to buy.
Chain checker? Chain? Brake pads? Nah it'll be fine..
