He got the best price.If the bike shop would have had it,it would have been bought there.Its called shopping around,just like cars.Now the bike shop asks if you are going to buy and you say i can get it online for xxx amount and they say we cant beat that but i'll give you a better deal then whats marked on the bike and lifetime tuneups and % off anything else you might need then thats a nice deal that might swing me to them.The markup on bikes are large and dont tell me there not.A smart consumer will get the best deal he can.Of course you are using the lbs but if thewy are cool you are going back for all your needs and speed plenty there in the long run.I am looking at bikes right now and i am driving 30 miles away to different lbs for prices and there is at least 3-5 within 10 minutes of me.So answer me this.A 2003 super cervelo prodigy at the lbs for $1799 but you hunt around online and find it for $1399 and free shipping and no taxes,which do yuo choose?
