LBS has the 2006 on sale for $540 instead of the $649 the 2005 would cost. I should say the web site for the LBS. I currently have a trek 7300 that's a few years old. Is there something I don't know or is it just a supply side thing (maybe they have a bunch of 06's built up etc). Since I probably won't buy either one yet, but I like to keep an eye out for deals on what I eventually want which is better overall. I realize this is a subjective question. But, are their known issues with eather bike etc or the component sets etc.
Also how cost effective (how much $ to do it / prolonged use ) of current bike and how hard would it be to put a rapid fire ( or similar system) on my 7300. It has grip shifters and I'm hoping switching would cut down on chain coming off and be 'better'. Thanks for indulging my ignorance.
Input is appreciated or a moderator can move this to a more appropriate slot?
