    SALSA BEARGREASE Carbon Machine

    I am just about to pull the trigger on one of these and does anyone know if they are ever discounted or is everyone having to pay close to full retail.? I am looking at the top shelf $5500.00 Model..

    The model I am refering to is the top Carbon Model that lists for $5500.00 USD. What are people actually paying for this model and how much are they getting off of list price..?

    I bought my X9 Beargrease last November and got 15% off MSRP. At this time of year you can probably get a better discount than that.
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    The real costs are in the components, with that weight and cost it must have some great components. I would check that out, if they are it seem like a good price.

    It all depends, do you have a good relations with the shop? Do you do trail work or promote the sport or are you just some Joe Blow walking into shop looking for a sweet deal? That being said our LBS has a XX1 left over and he is willing to deal so maybe the shop you are working with will as well. I'm not going to tell you a price do to said reasons above though. Just ask them can you do better on the price, simple as that.

    So if I am just "JOE BLOW it makes a difference what I have to pay..? What if i already spent 10's of $1000.00's at a shop, does that also make a difference..

    I have had a few prices here in oz that are around $5k AU so you shouldn't be paying anywhere near the $5.5k you mentioned in the US

    If you had a local shop with one on the floor, maybe you could get it for that price. I'll be shocked if any dealer would order one, and then sell it for $4,500, unless you're a family member.

    My LBS told me the 2015 Beargrease is going to be different. No details yet, but I won't be surprised if it's a redesign around the Bluto. I would hope to see an offering with a Bluto as well. I think you'll see a lot of the '15 offerings coming with a Bluto, and at the price point you're looking to spend, you may want to consider that option. Beargrease in L or XL take a Bluto without issue, the Med is very tight for frame clearance.

    My advice is to show up with a six pack of beers or a platter of homemade brownies, when you are there to watch. It'll make them much more receptive to your demands. For bike shops it isn't just about money, a little humanity will go a long way. It'll also help them remember your humanity when you bring it back for tweaks, tune ups and concerns. If you grease the right parts it'll go a long way to keeping that part running well.

    I am not new to buying bikes from this LBS. Over the last several years I have bought more then a dozen brand new high end bikes from them. I treat them quite well matter a fact. Cookies and Lunch always on build day etc etc.. So when i ask certain things of them, they usually agree.. I look forward to getting this XX1 and taking it along to Trek Days next Sunday..

    I don't have a Beargrease but I have found that 4 pieces of 2x4's screwed together holds my fat bike up great.
