    Where to buy Schwinn Madison?

    I've been looking for a schwinn madison for about a month now. There are a few LBSs that carry it around here, but they sell them for 500+. That price is out of my reach. I am looking for a price under 400. I did some research and found that some online retailers (such as Performance) used to carry it for under 400.

    So I ask you guys. Is there some online retailer that carries the bike for under 400? If not, should I wait?

    Bike prices went up a TON in the past year. I wouldn't count on finding it cheaper.


    Unless Wal-Mart starts selling it.

    Look for a sale at Performance. They do 10-20% off sales often.

    Thanks guys. I want to get one for the spring. Hopefully some sales pop up before then. If all else fails, I'll get a bike from bikesdirect. The reason being, I'm low on cash.

    my friend does delivery for round table pizza, he says its way sick and basically gets to be his own boss aside from choosing his hours. he makes like 40 bucks a night in tips but a couple weeks ago some fools called in an order and surrounded his car with guns and jacked him for 270 clams.

    cops said that sucks, get a tazer

    I was able to get a brand new Madison on Ebay early this month for under $250.

    This was pretty freakish:

    The bike was being sold from an LBS that had closed its doors... for $300 +47 shipping.

    Microsoft Live.com was offering 25% Cashback if you joined and used their Cashback program:
    $300 x .75 = 225 + 47 = $272.

    Ebay was also offering $30 if you used a new Ebay Mastercard:
    $272 -$30 = $242.00

    Live.com is down to 4% these days.

    Either way, keep your eyes peeled. The deals do happen.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Damn. No sales anywhere near that good here in phx. I'm gonna keep an eye on all sales. One is bound to pop up before spring time, right? Hehe.

    Just keep an eye on craigslist and ebay.
    or just go with bikesdirect if the wait is too much.
