    Oh good, a Wal-Mart thread.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    That's for the full monocoque carbon frame with Ultegra/105 gruppo. Look out, BD, Wal-mart is takin' your cheese.

    If they did that, new threads would only be about Botto getting banned.

    Alright, I'm going in and offering them $100 for an Ultegra/105 group. Think they'll bite?
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    I don't think that Wal-Mart negotiates much do they?

    Walmart bikes! Assembled by morons and you'll have absolutely zero support after the sale. I wonder how long before they start selling polyester Disco jerseys...

    You know, you make a good point. If they do decide to get into jerseys, I could easily see them driving down jersey prices. Lord knows it doesn't cost that much ($70, 80, 100+) to make a decent quality jersey. I'm not talking about that rough itchy polyester, but the good stuff. 20 or 30 bucks sounds reasonable to me.

    BD is still a much better option...and cheaper, too, when cost is of the utmost concern.

    An "Ol' Roy" or "Sam's Choice" jersey would be pretty cool. Maybe we'll see some Corsa bikes ridden by Team Ol' Roy on the pro tour someday.

    I don't get it, Walmart is supposed to have the "best" prices on everything, but 9-1000 for a 105 AL bike? Psch, you can get the same thing at Nashbar for 700!
