whats up guys
got a friend im trying to get into mountain biking. ive singled out a 08 trance 2 as the best bang for his buck in terms of entry-level full suspension mountain bikes (his budget is not much more than a $1000). I was wondering for all the 08 trance 2 owners out there what they were able to get the bike for? The mrsp is 1175 but in southern california i cant negotiate any of the giant dealers lower than 1190 out the door. Whats the deal? In my 15 year history ive never bought a bike after its all said and done near the mrsp. I dont know if that changes for entry level bikes or what but these are some stingy dealers. I think 1100 out the door is more than reasonable...what say you guys?
