If it was a stocking issue, I would understand, and I might have been willing to wait them out. But they told me the previous week that they had 75 new bikes in the back room, one of which I'm sure was the bike I wanted to check out.
Also, when I asked about the differences between the 09 and 10 he told me they were insignificant. And everything I have read tell me that the 10's are significantly different from the 09's. From the frame material to the components.
Needless to say, i made the drive to the next town over and found a Giant (Rapid 3) which I loved. And the shop I bought from was great.
I'm glad I didn't like the Trek better, I would have been in a quandary. Because the Trek rep in the next town tried to put me on a woman's bike twice. He didn't seem to know the difference unless he checked the color chart in his book. Certainly not a place I would buy from.
