IMHO - the spring bike shop "swaps" often have been the best time,
people are often trying to sell their old model for their latest fancy.
we often used the swaps to equip our growing kids with a better fitting
bike, selling the out grown bike to help support the next one.
that, said; we couldn't find a good fit earlier this spring for our 15 yo,
however we did score a nice deal on a left over cx bike. Not sure
why this bike was hanging around, optimistic dealer stocking ?
He has really taken to this bike, fits him well, rode it to school a
few times (26 km rt with 1500' climbing), he usually rides about
2000 km/yr. hopefully we can make it two years before needing
another bike swap.
