I think that's the way they normally do it. I bought mine from them years ago at Carlisle and they shipped them to me. Pretty sure they just had some fittings and small things out for sale. Might have had a couple sets of tubes hanging up to get your attention...On a personal note, I called InlineTube last week to pre-order for pickup at Carlisle to save shipping. (Thought it'd be a good idea to upgrade ftom 5/16 to 3/8 fuel line for the new 5.7) The sales manager answered the phone and told me they are NOT taking pre-orders this year and in fact are only taking a small van with no on-site inventory. He did give me free shipping on my order and the parts arrived 2 days later.
