Ok so I'm about to buy my first bike in about 15 years!! gertting a 2012 Trek 6500 for a grand which looks brilliant value from my lbs. Should I be looking to get some accesories thrown in, pumps, tools or suchlike or is that being cheeky?

    At the end of the day if its a 2012 I guess your paying top whack ? the markup on bikes is huge (thats why you see 2010 models with 50% off)....I would ask for £50-60 worth of free accesories...if they say no then say you will go elsewhere..I bet that will do the trick
