    Hi all.

    I've been scouring the lbs and the net trying to find a god deal for a new bike, I've looked at Ribble, Trek, Boardmans etc. I've just come from another lbs who have offered me a new Scott S55, with pedals and shoes and fitting on the bike for £789. What do you think of that, should I snap his hand off our can I do better? Cheers :smile:

    Hmm. Pedals & shoes could add extra, but the cheapest I've found it is for £560 :

    It's the old 8-speed Sora system if I'm correct, which is the same as the new Shimano 2300.

    Not the best value IMHO. They'd have to be really good pedals & shoes!

    Nice find, I'll see if my lbs will price match, I do like the Scott bikes. Do you think its an ok price from the website you found?

    You could buy the bike from pauls cycles get some good shoes and pedals and still save cash.

    Lets be reasonable they have to make some trade, however I would try haggle them with the info you have got and drum it below the £700 mark.

    The fit alone is beneficial and being able to try on the shoes is better than trial & error from online order. If they wont budge then say you will have a think about it and continue looking for a better deal! ^_^
