Ok yes pricing goes up every year on bikes. But does anyone think based on the economy today, that any one manufacture will come out with a fairly decent spec'd carbon bike in 2011? I think raleigh has something at $1300 now but not sure. If something is out there now tell me just wondering. I am sorta of interested in getting a carbon bike. For example a tiagra/sora set up and the carbon weave being pretty good. Or is this really a pipe dream for now? LOL. I think cannondale has the synaspe for $1700.
