    make my move or wait?

    so i have hade my eye on the haro extreme series for a long time and went to my LBS 2 days ago and they are trying to get rid of the last of their 06 line of bikes so they have 2 X7's left.and they are selling them for $1,000 even. my big Q is i only have $750 so should i work like a mad man for 3 weeks and try and snab one of the last X7s or should i just buy the X6 now and spend any $$ i make on up grades, or shoud i just wait and see what new comes out? i know that the x7s have ai nch more of travel but what are the other differences in componets? and how big of a difference would it make?

    Couldn't you pay 3/4 of the price now, and have it on layaway for a month?

    to bad my "friends" bought the last 3 haro extremes in the idaho panhandle, as of this morning. so i am stuck with riding my jamis dakar xc comp untill the 07's come out and then i get to pay $500 more than they payed for the same bike. but i will be able to say my bike is newer and better then theirs.

    Have you thought about calling any non-local dealers and seeing if they would ship? If you can get a good deal, $100 shipping still puts you ahead of waiting for newer/more expensive stock. Also, the 07s are already out, so it's not like there is going to be some super-badass changes on the ones the LBS gets. You can check out the spec on the 07 models at harobikes.com. Maybe there will be some changes for 08, but 07 "is what it is".

    Good luck,
    Chris

    or what i could do is just earn 2 grand or so and build a custom bike that will make theirs look like pieces of crap. lol what i think is funny is that they think that they will be better bikers than me just b/c of their bikes when i will kick their asses on a 28 pound xc bike untill my frame snaps lol. but they think that the bike makes the rider when you still have to control the bike and its just a hell of alot more rough with out all the travel
