Where to buy New Old model ('06,'05) bikes?

I'm looking for a place to buy new bikes that are old models (2006,05,04 etc) at a discounted price. Is there a retail store (online?) that sells these? Am I dreaming? Thanks for the help.

They mark them down until they sell. Just like a car dealership.

hmm.. I assumed thats what happened but it seems like there should be more older bikes floating around, I mean, they're mass produced right? It would just make sense for there to be a store that sold older bikes.

Try Sierra Trading Post: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/d/4...ycling-_-Bikes

Also, know that some of the online retailers (Jenson, for instance) blow out bikes often at a hefty discount.

+1 on LBS's marking down bikes untill they're gone.
