Buying a 2003 bike.. or 2004?
Hi, I called my LBS (I'm in Canada btw. -- also all prices will be in canadian dollars now) and they said that the 2004 bikes should start coming in around xmas.
Anyways, right now I own the Iron Horse Desperado. It's a lot like this bike
except it doesn't come with disc breaks. The bike - I got on sale at SportCheck
for $500 down from the advertised $700. Oh yah - I can return my current bike and get a full refund
I like my current bike but I realized that considering the amount of time i spend on the bike, and how much I like the sport, I could go a step up.
Anyways, that is where the Trek 4900 comes in. I think that is the right bike for me. However, should I get the 2004 model
, or the 2003
. Right now the 2003 model is $870 and $1100 with disc breaks.
Anyways, I need your help guys. How much will the price drop? Which model should I get?
Thanks for your time/help!
