Good price! See if they will throw in some goodies like fenders or a handlebar bag. Worth a try.

Or just pay for the bike and be happy you got a good deal. Bike shops are having a hard enough time without being squeezed for free stuff.

As his best friend and the guy that works at the bike shop, I hate to say that we can't give him anything above and beyond the usual %20 off accessories. I've already asked the managers... We're hardly making any money on the bike as it is like $400 off.

Give me a call and we can go for a ride when I get back from the paddling trip. I have a couple days between the paddling trip and when I start work again so we should do a trip to Montreal or something.

Hi,
when you get a chance, try sliding the seat back a bit (and just maybe down a millimeter). If you ever get a cramped feeling; like the bike was a bit small.....you can swap the stem for a longer one. If you do, just go up 10mm at a time. WHen you get the seating position dialed in perfectly, you'll know it.
