end of summer sales flurry...

love it / hate it..... now is the time of year when people that are financing bikes are trying to dump their bikes before the winter fully arrives... some decent deals out there.. what do you think is the best deal to shoot for... I'll probably wait another month to see if they go down a bit more.... then again the selection drops too....

They all look pretty nice. Being the lazy-a$$ that I am, I would prefer a liter bike for around town an on the bacroads. So I like the Erion, plus I like the color.

One has to question the maintenance record of a bike who's owner cannot distinguish between fiber optics and carbon fiber...

It's funny, I just realized that you live in MA
Anyway, I've been thinking the same thing, although my price range is a lot lower than any of those bikes, but I was hoping to pick up something older that needed some work before winter for cheap. Prices still seem a little high, though (like the sellers ) Any other sites that list used bikes other than CL? I've been riding my friends YZF all summer, so I don't mind waiting another month or two.

R6. Proly turn around and get 5K for it if the miles are truly low, like he said. Good track bike.

Have you checked Cycletrader.com? under the advanced search you can set it to ### miles from your zip code for local searches.

In the top menu bar, click "New Post" it automatically searches for new posts that you haven't read, and lists them for you. You don't have to switch forum menu's at all. I sit in one place and let the search engine bring the threads to me.
