- Jul 2, 2008I guess they can price it however they like, so the anticipatory price
hike doesn't strike me as shady particularly. But I definitely had the
same thought about the guys on the waiting list. Matter of fact I'm not
at all sure it can stand up legally--I would sure as hell kick up a fuss
if it were me. Once you have a number on paper and agreed, you can pretty
much hold them to it, I think.
Sad news about the prices (though inevitable) but it's going to hit a lot
of other industries harder--bike companies are accelerating into larger
economies of scale, not wilting.

Now if you tell me I need to pay 75 bucks more now cause of costs, that's one thing. But to charge me 155 more now because you are going to raise it another 80 bucks in the future, seems odd. What do I care if you need to raise prices later. I will already have paid for mine. Just sounds shady to me.
