I know this sounds kind of nuts. But anyone considering buying a Tricross as an investment and price hedge? They've had huge price jumps on the order of 25% every year lately since about 2006. At this rate, I don't think I'd ever be able to afford one again. LBS says Specialized is reporting dramatic increases in material costs and parts shipping charges as the cause.
But then just like milk and groceries, everything's going up.
