I'm new to cycling. I've seen one or two posts saying it's a bad time to be buying a bike. Is it because it's Spring and demand is high? A nearby LBS knocked $100 off MSRP when I asked about a bike he'd have to order for me. Larger stores in the area quoted me MSRP over the phone.
Will shops flex more towards the summer, or is it only a cold-month thing? Or just a myth?
