    2009 Scott Speedster S60 FB (Flat Bar) Road Bike (closeout) for $399 brand new

    OR

    2010 Giant Rapid 3 for $599 brand new

    Should I buy the cheaper closeout 2009 model Scott S60 online then have it shipped and buy pedals OR simply buy the regular priced 2010 model Giant Rapid 3 from an LBS
