Agreed. The 8s from Look are almost too easy to get out of when you're riding. You could even go one step further and get the Look Keo Easy pedals. They're also very reasonably priced so if the rider...

I'd argue the opposite. He's a poor salesman, or a quality deception artist. If we have a hot seller we hold margin like it's my job (which it is). The only time we ever let one go for cheap,...

First off, your shop does not have a 2017 Emonda ALR. Trek has not yet released the 2017 lineup for the Emonda ALR. An announcement is expected at Trek World next week but specifics on what that...

The shop I'm at charges $150 to build a bike. If we're swapping components from one to another we charge $250 so you get a "discount." Then again it's much easier to take everything off the frame,...

Oh I know. Sorry if it sounded like I was trying to contradict you and defend myself.

Dude that's awesome! I'm the exact opposite. I'm an UberFred riding a $10,000+ CF bike all kitted out going 12 MPH waving to people who look at me with derision. I equally enjoy on it on some level!

Model year cut over is usually around now. We started getting 2017 bikes (select models, very limited stock on hand) a little over a month ago. But historically we don't get the full lineup until...

Probably some of the worst photos of "the thing I'm selling" I've seen on a classified ad in a while. What leads you to believe it could be fake?

The bike is on sale for $4500 nationwide. I still think (as mentioned in the Domane thread) that you're not getting any favors on the Di2 upgrade. Especially considering you already have the crankset...

It's not too far off, when we weighted a 105 5800 group set in the shop for a customer:

Ah, so you were confusing the Emonda & the Domane. An easily confusion, considering they now both have an SLR 6 version. I'd still argue that even at $4500 the the SLR 6 is pretty expensive for a...

The SLR6 (non-disc) is only $4999.99 MSRP. It seems odd that your LBS is already discounting brand new 2017 models. But might as well take advantage of their poor margin management.
