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.

Probably not cheaper for me. My LBS doesn't stock my size.

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)
