|Going to buy a new frame for next season and some online prices have dropped to a good level. Will these prices go even lower after the holiday, stay the same thru winter, or jump up again soon ?|

|This is the end of the 2003 model year for bike comapanies. Frames are on sale across most product lines. It is also the winter where demand falls to the lowest level. Come spring (March), demand will come back up.
The prices may drop some more in early January. But the risk is in not finding the size that you want. With the falling dollar, you can bet that next years stock is going to more expensive than '03's.
So, if you can find a good deal now, go for it. If you wait, you may save some more money, but you may not find the color or frame size that you need.
