    Down to $159 and change...bargain time. Wheel set and tires are worth that.

    I like personalizing my bikes, a little more room to add and change stuff.

    I have no room and bikes aren't allowed to be on the premises where I live. But I just tried anyway at $159, in Hawaii:
    "Sorry, this item can't be shipped to your selected address. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order."

    Bummer on two counts. What’s up with no bicycles allowed? Guess I understand the shipping issue.

    I had kept the wife's and my bike under a stairwell out of sight. But others were propping the exit only doors open so they could get easy access with their "support dogs" and it became a security issue. They were ticked that they had to use the front door only and complained about our two bikes under the stairwell. Just out of spite, so the manager had to ban bikes. We keep them next to our bed, the only spot possible now. Only 420 sq ft of condo. Can't even keep them locked up outside. I like my bike in my room anyway.

    In your climate I wouldn’t want to leave a bike outside but you would think a bike rack could be provided...or storage lockers.
    We had to remove our bike hauling trailer from our driveway. There is a code issue against it. So now having to pay for a storage unit, but it also allowed some bikes to be moved from garage. Problem now I have more space. Got to keep thinking “downsize” though.

    Where it shows a box for style, click and select the other one, same bike. Lower price. It changes day by day.

    At $168...I was intrigued
    At $159...I was seriously considering pulling the trigger
    At $278...not interested :grin:

    I wonder if our discussions here resulted in increased sales, which led to the prices going back up on the few left? :nod::shake:

    I'll bet they have a program that does all the calculations by the minute and recommends the price changes. Millions of calculations that can't be verified in time to make them viable. Whatever it says to do has been proven to make a profit somehow. The old way of doing it would take a week of mathematicians working around the clock. [​IMG]

    Previous replies funny stuff.

    Raise price, cut price, hook em and then reel them in.
    Mine was 179$ if I remember correctly.

    We could check for lurkers by posting, "I'd by a dozen of these if the price would go down to $146.53"...if it does, we know there watching!

    ...oh wait...if they are watching...they'll read this, must rethink my plan :bandit:

    I think the goal is to sell "x" cargo containers of product by "y" date.

    Maybe lots of bad reviews will slow sales and the computer will lower the price to compensate.
