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?

:-)

The only Bianchi shop in Austin is Discovery Cycles.
