Congrats on the bike, but.... I have a question. The 5.2 lists for around $3,600 while the 6.5lists for around $5,800 - a $2,200 difference. How did you manage to bridge that gap with a $100 difference??hammrob said:Thought i'd let you know i got the 6.5 pro. Trek dealer did a really good deal and ended been $100 between the 5.2 and 6.5. Arriving monday morning in a box so hope assembly isn't too difficult...
If he only had one left, and he is coming into the busy season, why was he so desperate to unload it so cheap? No doubt he could get close to list for it. I'm not saying I don't believe you, I do, but something is not making sense. There has to be more to the story.hammrob said:Na 5.2 and 6.5. Trek dealer only had 6.5 pro left and offered over 30% off otherwise would have been a 5.2 through LBS with 10% off at the most
Ah, so this explains your need to assemble the bike. Is Trek going to warranty it?hammrob said:Im in New Zealand and he gets a couple of shipments of treks a year and he's just about out of stock now next lot is due july-september. Went through a friend who gets them cheap direct from the dealer thats the only reason, normally wouldn't be able to go though the dealer
You may want to get a clarification on that. I can't speak for Trek, but I know Felt specifically states that the bike must be assembled by an authorized dealer.hammrob said:They will if i have it assembled by a bike shop not sure if i do it myself?
