bike was sold out from under me.
I have decided to stick to the used route. On another forum that I am a very active member of (non bicycle related) a member was selling a 21" trek 820. I looked at the pictures and made him an offer of $120 approx. 1 hour after he posted the add. He was asking $150 or best. He got back to me saying $125, I accepted in a second email stating that I could pick it up next week. He sent me an email that said he found somebody else giving him full asking price. It sucks because it looked like a nice bike. Yellow trek 820, upgraded Deore shifter's and cassette. upgraded seat, newer tires, recent tuneup. Oh well, I found a giant yukon for sale on craigslist, sent the guy an email. here is to hoping this bike finds its way into my garage...
