Anyone know of a shop which does Specialized by mail order in the US?
Specialized, Trek, and a few other manufacturers do not allow their bikes to be sold online or "mail order". The reasoning behind this is to protect their dealers from the large no store front online warehouses that can buy in bulk quantities and sell at cut throat prices. Then there are others like Ibex and Kona that sell their bikes right off their websites. Anyway you won't find a Specialized dealer that will sell mail order or online. Not if they want to continue to be a Specialized dealer anyway. It's in the contract when they become a Spec dealer that they will not sell online.
