    New bike wanted to share a “WTF” discovery

    So I have been in the market for a Track bike but came across a new 2008 Lemond Fillmore with a sale sticker of $650 yesterday. Now I know its not a Track bike but I’m a huge Lemond fan just never could afford one and also I have a Pista I can rig up for the Track so I bought it for $600 (after taxes.) Yes 600 out the door!
    Here is my discovery and what I wanted to share with everyone(after my long winded set up)
    http://leescyclery.com/product/lemon...e-28090-1.htm#

    $1039 WHAT? Is the market really that different depending where you are? Because that is one heck of a big difference in price.

    Most brick and mortar bike shops that carry major brands don't seem to use the internet very well (with a few very notable exceptions).

    The bike is two seasons old so the shop most likely just wants to get rid of it. I would swoop on it if it fits you.

    cool grats. I am kind of like you, if a good deal comes along i snatch it up. Had no plans on buying my last bike. Took my bike into get a tune up, shop owner offered me a killer deal. A week later I had a bike I never thought id have.

    I'm the same way with frames. I like to keep a few hundred spared in case I run into something I can't live without.

    Well I picked up the Lemond at my LBS! Haven’t rode it yet just carried. It feels lighter then my Pista giving that it has a rear brake this surprises me.

    Juste getting into the SS/fixed scene it't interesting how heavy these bikes are compares to some road bikes but I guess alot of that is to do wit $$$ and materials used.

    At first I thought "WTF?! A few hundred frames?"
