Hey Guys, Sort of last minute. Was seeing if anyone is available to help check out a bike with me tonight?

http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/nv...795129983.html

Going to meet up at Park Royal at 7:30 PM. I am driving in from Richmond, can pick you up on the way.

Thanks!

After procrastinating for the past few months I picked up a road bike, 2010 Specialized Secteur Comp

Thanks for the Bicycle Blue Book link, it helped in negotiating $200 of the asking price

Now I need a bike fitment, shoes and cardio.....

These tires are pretty awesome. Did some sprints, hill climbs and coffee shop posing. Lots of grip and very confidence inspiring on fast, downhill corners. The tires absorb a lot of road shock/vibration very well, much better than the Pro 3 yet smooth when you hammer down on the cranks.

Great tires. Will buy again. A++

1. You were invited however, the timing was not meant to be. (Saturday haha)
2. We were on Main Street, aka Hipsterville!

In terms of "guy off the street" price - pretty standard, in according to most LBS rates but I've never seen him charge full price (unless somebody's being a douche.) Then there's the "Mike referred me" rate. Best to give John a call. He's opened tomorrow.

Cash talks and gets the best deals.
