    Buying advice

    So I've narrowed it down to 2 bikes. One a '14 demo, one a brand new '14. Question is, since the new '15s are hitting stores, what is a reasonable amount to pay for a '14 new bike. Priced the same as beginning of the season, but I suspect with new inventory coming in they would be more motivated to get rid of the old? Being new to purchasing a bike what percentage of would be expected for them to drop off the bike?

    it matters on your region and what get's sold around there, in san diego Trek remedies and Specialized SJ's get sold like they're free, so they don't drop much even if they are last seasons, but i've seen other DH or FR bikes sit around because they're less desirable and get a good drop on price.
