Today I had an errand which took me right next door to one of my LBS's. So, of course, I wandered in to see if there were any amazing sales I couldn't afford to miss. Among other things, and right beside one another were these three bikes:
2005 Specialized Sequoia for $770.00
2006 Specialized Sequoia for $770.00
2007 Specialized Sequoia for $770.00
2005 and 2006 look very similar -- only the head post appears different. 2007 introduces a new two tone paint job, although still mostly silver but now with some black.
The "sale" offer was 10% off any bike in the store. To be fair, the salesperson offered me, once i questioned the three different Sequoias, a 20% discount on the 2005. (But only after asked about the differences.)
Maybe it's just me, but I found the three identical prices a bit astonishing.
