For an '08 you should not have paid much more than $300.
I paid less than $400 with the tax. I did get the two free tuneups the first year and one a year
after that for as long as I own the bike. That includes wheel truing as well. That could add up
if I keep the bike for a long time.
I did a couple test rides, but now it is raining and I have to wait to ride for a few days. I am
keeping the old Trek for every day riding and this one is for the long rides on the week ends.
