did lbs bait and switch?(3 posts)

did lbs bait and switch?BillG
Aug 1, 2001 5:59 PM
I just brought home a 2000 Bianchi Brava tonight to replace a 10 year old hybrid that I commute to work on. I bought the Bianchi new from a reputable lbs. They had it as a leftover and offered a $100 discount. They had to assemble the bike for me, as it was in storage, and not on the floor. After taking my bike home, I noticed that the tires are Kenda and the rims are WTB. The 2001 Bianchi catalog lists the standard parts as Mavic CXP 21 rims and Vittoria Action HSD tires. I would assume that parts such as tires and rims do not differ too much from year to year. Unfortunately, I do not have a 2000 Bianchi catalog.

Do I have a problem? Is it a normal practice to switch parts (if they actually did so)? Do any other posters have Bravas from 2000? What are your parts?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Any catalog from any brand will say this in the fine print somewhere.
