    To be fair I work at a Specialized, Serotta, Bmc, Ridley etc......shop and I just wait for the end of the year closeouts. I really do not have very much into that Roubaix at all but yea, it is way to nice to be a rain bike..........

    I'm gald to see that you're still rocking the 7800. It looks good with that frame.

    After riding 7900 for a little while, I came to the conclusion that if I couldn't get it for a killer deal on a new bike, I would just buy a frameset and put my trusty old 7800 on there.

    I am going to hold out for the 8000 series (guessing at the number) I am not real impressed by the 7900 either and to be honest I have yet to ride any group that I prefer over 7800 and that includes Record and Red.

    Question though: The shifting is a bit unsmooth. Are bikes supposed to be tuned out of the box?
    Care to give details on how you came upon a NIB bike from Giant? I'd really like to report them to Giant.

    It's a real Giant, but dealers are not allowed to sell bikes anywhere but their shop. People who would rather save $100 buying the same bike online as they can in their local shop are usually not...experienced... enough to correctly assemble a bike.

    I know they do it, but dealer's have been stripped by Giant for doing that.

    Really? I would much rather save $100 by ordering overseas and assembling it myself...and I know for a fact that I could handle the assembly. It's not a matter of experience, it's a matter of how much money you are willing to spend. For me, the "support" and "help" of a LBS isn't worth the extra money, so if I came across a NIB Giant, Trek, Jamis, w/e, I would probably jump on it.

    And go crawling into the bike shop when you don't have BB tool or whatever.

    Just the simple fact that you'd assemble the bike yourself means you'd probably never need the support or help of a LBS anyways.

    I'd buy almost everything online if it were not for the fact that one of my best friends is part of a family bike shop business in town that has hooked me up with quite a few good deals and gives me a regular discount off sticker price.
