New bike (gloat)(5 posts)

I've been lurking on this board while looking for a new
road bike. I just found a really good deal, and wanted to
gloat to people who would appreciate it.

I have been looking at the Bianchi Campione, but the only
dealer in Austin doesn't seem to want to deal. I was
thinking about going down to Britton Bikes in San Antonio
this weekend, as they said they sell them for $999 (they
are $1099 MSRP). I was searching on Yahoo yesterday looking
to see if I could find a used one for sale, and found a web
site of a store in MD that has a new 2001 model in my size
for $750. The shipping is about what I would've paid in
sales tax anyway, so I'm saving $250 on the bike I already
wanted. The only difference between the two years is the
color (2001 is solid red, 2002 is silver and red). How cool
is that?


Congrads Will, nice looking machine. Safe riding nmPaul

Don't gloat on your new ride, it damages the frame (nm)SantaCruz
