My local shop has got a shipment of the 07's and are currently selling them for $573.00 for both the 2006 and 2007. What are some of the major differences? Should I talk them down on the 06 because there taking them off the floor...? Opinions please...

Happy 4th!

That is a good price for them. I have no idea what the difference in features is between them are though. I think it will be another two months until the 2007 Raleigh catalog is available. I do have an order in for the XXIX singlespeed 29er that is due in August.
I just got the early 2007 Raleigh catalog. The main differences between the M80/Mojave 8.0 is the 2006 version has Shimano Deore front derailleur and the rear derailleur is Shimano LX, with a Deore 9-speed shifter. The fork is a Manitou Trace Comp 80mm travel with preload adjust.

The 2007 has SRAM SX-5 9-speed shifter, SRAM X-7 front and rear derailleurs.Plus a SR Suntour XCR 100mm fork with preload adjust and lock-out. I would go for the 2007 model, if I was buying one. It depends on which components you like better.

One note for now: This early 2007 catalog doesn't have the dual-suspension mountain bikes in it. was updated today to reflect the 2007 models.
