Buying from a far bike shop a bad idea?
I'm in a small dilemma. I found last years model of the CAAD10, but the shop is about 1 hour and 30 minute drive away, the last one I could find in my size. It's not a price thing either, the older model would cost $50 less than what I could get for this years model, maybe I could ask for more of a discount though. I don't like this years color scheme so I would really be willing to go out of my way to buy it. Do you think this is a bad idea? The bike shop offers 1 major tuneup and as many small adjustments within the first year. So by purchasing from the long distant bike shop, I would probably never go back for any adjustments except for the major tuneup. I would basically be foregoing any service and if any problems arise it would be awful. Is it worth it to go all that way to buy a bike?
