I'm in the market for a high end bike. Went to a Giant dealership and was told that because they did not have the volumn, they could not put the TCR Advance on the floor (and it's a pretty big shop). Same thing with Specialized; no Tarmac Pro or Venge. I'm gonna drop 7 or 8k on a bike with no test ride? Don't think so. Been wanting a pair of the S-Works shoes...none on hand (or even the next lowest model). Was told a cusomer with a pair who is my size might come in and I can try his on For $400, I believe I'd want to try them on first yes? Go to Cannondale and they are encouraging me to take a brand new Evo out and ride it to my hearts content. I just don't get this marketing strategy from Giant and Specialized, it's a lost sale as far as I am concerned.
