    PSA: Specialized Bikes Sale

    Pretty steep discounts for bikes from specialized right now, Stumpy Evo Expert ~$4700 - pretty smoking deal considering the build.

    Evidence that bike prices are out of hand: $4700 is a smoking deal.

    Was just in a Specialized dealer this morning picking up my new Norco Search XR flat bar gravel bike. If you want a Diverge gravel bike (flat bar or drop bar), you're looking at 18-24 months to get one.

    How are you liking your Stumpy Evo? What setting you running in? Thing has a low ass BB no matter how you spin it.

    They have the frame-only option available... and it's a sick color too.

    yes they do. and yes it is.
    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    There are a few stores in SLC that have the s4 in stock. Anyone know if specialized stores match the online sales prices?

    Edit: Looks like some do

    Online sizing advice from specialized.com tool is s5 for me which seems huge. Iím 5í10Ē

    Made the mistake of seeing that sale this morning and finding out they had my size in stock over the hill. Now who needs an ibis Ripmo v2 in XL?

    How the hell are bikes companies having sales when they haven't been able to ship with any reliability for the last 3 years?

    I think they caught up, but the demand is gone. Just a guess. The covid bike heyday couldnít last forever.

    Well those bikes are all spec'd with SRAM components, which have actually had pretty good availability all season, coupled with lower demand than the last two summers. Shimano on the other hand.... my shop is still waiting on many bikes since Rocky Mtn only specs shimano.

    I run the high bb setting and middle headset setting. Feels great with minimal pedal strikes here in Tahoe. I donít feel the need to drop the bb anymore or go any slacker. Nice, steady peddler with minimal bob but isnít going to break any records on the climbs.

    Found an s4 here in SLC and pulled the trigger. Super pumped as Iíve been looking for a longer travel bike. Currently on a 2017 transition smuggler. Unfortunately I canít ride it as I had rotator cuff surgery in May and donít get clearance until first week of November. Itís like buying skis in early June, which is prime buying time for me.

    OEM has had Shimano for a long time. Just no retail stock.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
