I traded in a 2000 LS Classic for a 2003 Merckx Majestic (A Classic with Merckx geometry) through River City Bicycles in TN. I couldn't be happier. The guys at RCB were great. I emailed them an accurate description of my bike (warts and all) and told them the bike I was looking to buy. They responded within a day with excellent prices (trade-in value and sale price). I sent the bike out to their shop and they confirmed the trade-in price originally quoted. They built up my bike exactly the way I asked with a nice throw-in.lav25 said:Has anybody done the trade in bike deal with Litespeed, Merlin? Could you provide details about how it works, if you were pleased, or felt screwed? I am probably going to do it (have a 2000 DA9 Tuscany) for a Merlin.
Thecnically, I think an ABG bike (LS, Merlin, QR, etc.) has to be part of the deal as the trade-in or trade-for. In my case, it was both since the Majestic is made by LS. The guys at RCB were pretty flexible.funknuggets said:Is it any bikes, or just old Litespeed or Merlin stuff?
