I'm thinking about picking up a Specialized Crosstrail Expert. Everyone I called in my area tells me they don't have this bike in stock, can't get any more 2007 bikes, and can't get the 2008 bike until December. The 2008 Crosstrail Expert supposedly is going to MSRP at $940 where the 2007 is $770, for what sounds like the same specs.
I've called everyone listed as a dealer within 150 miles on the Specialized locater. I'm hoping someone who knows the bike business might have some advice for me.
