Belfast, You seemed to have missed that fact that I bought a $2200 Mtb from the same shop, not to mention a litany of supplies. I have a good relationship with the guys who work there and they could care less if I kick tires around. They know I am and will continue to be a good customer. Why else would they specifically tell me to go online after I told them I need a Merckx set-up? They couldn't even come close to the online price and weren't prepared to try to swindle a good customer. Now, I'm in the market for a new bike for my wife. A Giant TCR or the like will suit her just fine and that I WILL be purchasing from my LBS. Had they tried to swindle me when I was looking for a bike, do you think I'd go back to them later? Things tend to work out in life if you keep the right attitude.
