I thought specialized did a 29er but they dont seem to do it in the UK this year. Kona do some 29er but they look decidedly budget for the price. Could i spec up a custom at my LBS? Do singular/on-one deal with shops?
on one do cycle scheme but charge £100 for it I think which chould be a bit cheecky if you spend less than the £1000 as the way I understand it they (on one) will effectivy pay cycle scheme 10% of the cost of the goods so could do well out of it if people spend less than the £1000 (I'd guess most spend close to the £1000 though tbh)
my lbs usually does me 20% off retail but on cyclescheme he only gives me 10% as he looses 10% to them (still a bloody good deal tbh) Next years cyclescheme opens for me next month, I'm planning a build and looking forward to it already
