I'm sure I'm not the only one and this may have something to do with the fact that I can't afford a new bike but is anyone else getting pissed off when they put a bike in to google search for shopping and all the bikes are the same price? For example!!
Why is it £700 more expensive in the UK than in the states?
We know the manufacturers set the prices.
We know that if retailers sell more than 10% below the RRP they will not to be given more stock
We know that almost every bike manufacturer is doing it
Yet we put up with it because we enjoy our sport, I just want to buy the best bike I can for a fair price and without competition we are just getting ripped off.
I'm no lawyer, but I'm sure someone out there must love getting out on to the trails at the weekend but practices law or works for the competition commision during the week. Lets do something about this and start seeing a bit of fair trade...
If not then lets just carry on paying over the top and do the british thing and get shafted with dignity
RANT OVER I'M GOING TO BED
DON'T EVEN WANT A LAPIERRE ANYWAY (WOULDN'T TURN DOWN A YETI THOUGH)
