not too many shops in houston are going to go below the suggested price, and some are not allowed to...
unless the bike is new but old stock, or unless it is somehow damaged, not going to happen....bike shops are not flea markets...and the margin on new bikes is not what keeps them going. If you look at their annual big "advertised" sales, even then the sale price is only discounted about 10% and usually only on certain bikes.
and if you are talking about a bike that is only $400 they do not have too much room to move.
