    $2400. same on Specialized website.

    they suggested this bike to me, so yeah. I took it for a test ride and the bike is really light. No binding like my other bike.

    My brother has this bike, I believe it is '05 though. It is an awesome bike, it is really light and that's all I could say as I never road it. But my brother loves it!

    Do LBS do demos? If so ask them about demoing a bike. I know some hockey shops let goalies demo pads, but I don't know about bikes.

    I have the 06 and love it; do ride it first.

    edit: Apparently I have reading comprehension issues: if you liked how it felt in the test ride then I recommend that you buy it. It's a solid performer.

    How good it is is relative to the cost. If he could get a less than average 2500 dollar bike for 1000, I would consider that a "good bike", because it would still be better than anything in the 1000 dollar range. Its all about comparing bikes to the other ones in a similar price range. I can call my Hardrock a "good bike" the same way somebody can call their s-works a "good bike". This is obviously meaningless. Therefore, a bike is considered "good" if it outshines others in its price range.

    Why not buy an 07 at a discounted price...I did and saved $500 off MSRP. Couldn't be happier.

    True, a lot of the LBS are having year end sales to get rid of the 07s...
