2005 Specialized Hard Rock Sport for $350?????
Hey, I'm new to the forum and haven't biked since i was 15, which was 7 years ago. I currently have a 1996 Schwinn "Sidewinder" mountain bike. It was like $160ish when I got it back in '96. I am thinking of getting back into it and looking at some "entry level" bikes b/c I want to make sure I really am gonna bike a lot before I dump serious money into a bike.
My LBS has a 2005 21"/XL Specialized Hard Rock Sport in silver for $350. The 2006 model in black is $360.......so, I was wondering if it was possible I could get them to come down on the 2005? If so, how much could I potentially get off MSRP? Any suggestions on Trek bikes that could be cheaper? I really wanted something in the $250 range. Really, I will just be using this bike for paths and MINOR trails..nothing too serious as of now.
