Looking to get a new bike. Any thoughts or comments on the new x-caliber 8? It retails for $1050 and my lbs will sell it to me for $879. Could I work them down to $849? Am I getting a good deal or should I wait? I have also been looking at the more expensive spec. rockhopper comp 29er or even more spec. crave 29er. I want a good brand name not some online brands. Thanks. Brand new to this website.
