Then come to Scheels Sports in Lincoln NE. The 2008's just started rolling in, and they are clearing out the 2007's for $279/ea. They have all sizes left, but probably not for long at that price. I am simply blown away that they are offering these bikes for that price.
Get 'em while they last. As a sidenote, the '08s are okay, but it looks like in some respects they've gone down a level. 32h wheels opposed to 36. Suntour fork opposed to a RST (although they seem to be about the same quality). Suntour crankset. Interesting changes overall.
