Thought you guys might want to know about this -

Got a newsletter sale notice about some 2009 29er Titanium bikes
the main difference between the 09 and 10 is the 09 has the higher geared cassette (easy to sell off/ swap out yerself)

here is the link from the newsletter:
http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...TI_29_sale.htm

It is $100 off the normal pricing which is $100 less than the 2010 model

Newsletter said that they only have ONE of each in 17.5 and 19" sizes left
