So I've been shopping for a bike for 2 weeks or so, nobody in Colorado has an '05 Kona Caldera to ride, and the '06's seem to be a step down (components and fork), so it looks like it'll be a Specialized...
The bike at the top of my list is an '05 Stumpy. The bike lists for $1300 (XT RD, Deore FD & shifters, no disc brakes, don't recall the fork) and it's currently marked down t0 $1175. I am wondering if there are any folks out there who work at a shop (or have other means to help) and can answer my question.
I keep raising the ceiling on my price, but have decieded to draw the line at $900(ish). Is $900 a fair price to offer an LBS for the '05 Stump Jumper above, or will I be wasting my time as well as insulting them? I know ya never know unless you ask, but at the same time I don't want to be an a**.
