My local bike shop has this bike on sale for $480, anyone have experience with these or should I find something else for a cheaper price?
Raleigh "Route 1"

IF the bicycle is really a "2006 Model", then I'd ask for a discount, $480 is not much different than $495, jmho. It's a nice looking hybrid but for $480 you could find a "2010" of something! Personally, I'd stay in the $450 to $550 level of bikes IF you can afford to, anything under that is a very "entry level" machine from what I've seen. Since the Bike is "4 years old", offer him $350 cash and see if he bites, I'm sure he doesn't really want a bike that OLD on the new sales floor, jmho. ymmv.
The dealer told me he won't go any lower, so the bike in total including tax will be around $500. Do you think I should get a different bicycle?
