    Best deal on an HDR?

    Looking to purchase a HDR. Where did you guys find the best deal? Competitive has them for 5600 with XO1 and xt brakes and stans wheels.
    I don't wanna drop below X01. Any ideas?

    Check out Try On bikes in Rochester, NY. Great shop, prices, and guys to deal with. That's where I got my HDR/CCDB air frame.
    Also the Bike Company, bikeco.com
    And Pro Bike Supply, but I think you have to reach the right person.

    I purchased my HDR 650b from Competitive Cyclist. Got to spec out each part exactly how I wanted it, and for a little less than what they listed on the website (through talking to one of their gear guys over email). The CC setup at X01 is great, but I wanted to go in a burlier direction for wheels. CC made it easy, and had some recommendations on bars/stem that were spot on.

    Down the road, the price break you get from Competitive Cyclist will likely be spent at your local shop on things like the initial maintenance/checkup, and any warranty repairs that happen. The X01 trigger shifter self destructed after 200 miles, and SRAM warranty replaced it no questions asked. Even with the free part, we still paid a local shop $25 to put the new part on the bike.

    If I had to do it again? I would go to a local shop and see if they would match the CC website price. That way, if you have issues/questions, you can solve them in one visit, and won't feel like you're showrooming your local shop.
