If you need help wrenching on a cross bike - you may prefer a dealer; lots of cross riders do their own work - so dealer is meaninglessbillyd said:Those are good deals. But what do you do if something breaks and who's going to put it together. Not me. I suck at that stuff.
$1070 is what I'll be getting charged for the JST. I think the Ibex is comparable. The Motobacane has much cheaper components.
Oh well, my local lbs put three new drive trains on my bikes last year and rebuilt my Wicked Fat Chance into a single speed. I think it's time I brought a bike from them.
I don't think it would be to cool walking in there with a new Ibex and asking them to put it together.
Thanks for post those. I always like to see who has good deals.
