    Hey guys, when do the 08's come out? I'm mainly interested in the Trek/Lemond lineup. Thinkin about gettin a Alpe De'huez or Versailles, but who knows what I'll end up with. I would hate to buy one only to see a druel worthy paint scheme a month later! thanks

    Looks like my LBS is already getting some Trek 08's in stock. The website still shows 07 bikes only though.

    I just don't want to buy an 07, then have the 08's come out a month later with a more preferable paint scheme.

    For up to 1/3rd off the retail and no change in spec other than colour- I'd go for an 06. 08's are appearing in the shops over here.

    Oh, England. I bet my plane ticket would negate the savings.

    As M_S says, the '07s will be cheaper. I just bought an 07 Trek 7.2FX for $30 cheaper than an 08. Plus mine came in red and the new 08s had this weird brownish/orange color. So I got mine cheaper, and in a better color.

    Yup, both of the Trek and Specialized shops in town have their 07s on closeouts. Decent prices too, with a few in my size, around 59cm. Too bad I don't have the money to get one. My woman says we need furniture for our place instead of a $1000 bike sitting in the corner. Bummer she doesn't have her priorities straight!

    slightly O/T but i ordered an 08' Raleigh and the guy said it'll probably be the first week of september before it is in.

    i would have gone for an 07 but the bike is new for 08. (see link in sig line)
