I mentioned to a friend that I'm about to pull the trigger on a LHT and he told me due to the exchange rate Bob Jacksons are a good deal right now. Is this true, I found the touring frame goes for about $675 shipped to the USA. The LHT is $450ish. I'm seriously considering an upgrade. I hadn't even thought a Bob Jackson until I started checking them out. Very C&V. So if y'all know this stuff off the top of your heads I'd love some feedback.
How much are Bob Jackson bikes normally? Is this a better deal than usual?
How much is a new Trek 520 Frame and fork?
Alternatives to these (new,steel, classic look)?
How come there is never any Bob bikes on EBay, are they so good people never part with them?
And lastly, for you accounting types, is the exchange rate liable to get better/worse any time soon?
Thanks fellas(and ladies)
