same spec, 2 prices???
One's not bothered about doing the job/supplying the build?
Is one (presumably the most expensive) charging you full retail for the prices according to your calcs?
Is it a high end job? If the build was 3k+ I could see there might be that variation, depending on the parts and where they're sourcing them from- at £1.5k or so I'd want to know the whys and wherefores- the discount sounds too good to be true. Might be built with parts stripped off a previous model etc.Posted 8 years ago
You've got a top class dealer giving you a good price for a bike. You've got another price for a supposedly identical bike that you don't like. Why do you need to have a discussion on here about it? Nobody here can tell you why shop #2 has priced their bike the way they have. Why not ask them? If they can't give you a decent answer you know where to spend your money. But if they will only agree to match 18 bikes the sensible thing to do is buy from 18. They gave you a good price without prompting, and they are top class guys. Why do you need our opinion, unless you've got some hidden agenda?Posted 8 years agoRocketdog36Member
Err ones ripping you off maybe,Posted 8 years ago
go back to the other supplier and give them the chance
to improve, if they match the other shop then go back to the first shop
and ask for money off!
You work hard for your money ( I assume) you are the guy with the cash, think what you
could spend any saving you get on.
Again, why not ask them? You can be a real dick sometimes ton. You're asking us why someone else has done something we're not involved with.
It could be that one has a surplus of stock they're willing to sell at cost. It could be one has a discount scale in place. It could be that one has made a mistake – be it maths or component. It could be that one was given a wrong price by their supplier. It could be one of them is being evil and trying to rip you off to further their plans of world domination.
Honestly, why is your first choice to resolve this query is with a third party and not with those providing the prices?Posted 8 years agonjee20Subscriber
Seeing as some factory built bikes vary by £400 depending where you look why's it so surprising that two custom built ones do?
Just ask them if you want to know/give them a chance to come down, otherwise go with the cheaper quote. You are coming across as a bit of a cock!Posted 8 years ago

Do you have the answer Ton?
i do indeed.
the cheaper one is splitting another bike to use the stuff off that to build what i specced.
he has just phoned to tell me so.
and the dearer one is using new stock.

and the advice from some of the guys on here is worth listening to.
where are they? certainly this thread is evidence to the contrary?
some good advice on other threads…..about riding after having broken bones, and what gear for the alps….i always giggle at those threads.. 8)Posted 8 years ago
