Most of the retail prices are listed for bikes on the manufacturer's websites. This makes it very convenient for us to see if they are charging retail or giving a better deal.
My LBS, although it has improved drastically with new ownership, still charges retail for every single bike. What it says on the Trek site is EXACTLY what you pay, plus tax. I hate that! I live in a one LBS town and would love to buy local. But if i can save a couple hundred bucks by traveling out of town, i have to do it. (That buys a lot of groceries around my place.)
Does your shop charge retail for their bikes?
EDIT--------> I am asking about sticker prices. If your shop bargains and gives you a better deal that is fine. I am just asking what they mark the bikes at...is it marked above or below retail?
