Why are you asking now? Are you able to return it if you find you don't like it? If you have already invested and are not happy with it, return it while you can. If it feels good and you are comfortable with it, go out and enjoy it! But maybe as a suggestion for next time I would do your homework BEFORE plunking down half a thou.

Like Siu said, better to ask before hand. I really doubt that anyone is going to tell you anything negative about your new bike. Hope you enjoy it.

Oh yeah, congratulations on the new toy!

Big retailers never sell stuff for much more than the MSRP, especially chains like Sports Authority. You'd probably have a lot of trouble finding that year's model new for much less anywhere else. Except Ebay, maybe.

Do you mean wholesale or MSRP? Hopefully you mean wholesale. If they are selling for more than msrp then you are definitely getting ripped off.
