Local dealer has new 2011 Flash Carbon 2. I test rode it briefly about 7 months ago. Great feeling bike even without fine tuning the fit. Like the carbon Lefty.

Price is now $3400 before 6% tax. I was thinking of offering $3000.

Obviously the chainsuck issue may be a big one later. I don't want to eat into a frame waiting for a warranty so the thought of selling the new FSA SL-K crankset came to mind and then find a X9 level 2x10 crankset.

a) Is $3000 too much on a holdover Flash Carbon 2?

b) What about my idea to sell and swap cranks? The oem crank not a popular 2x10 crank to resell?
