    Z70 History

    I'm looking at getting a used Z70 and was doing some research and noticed that according to bikepedia the Z70 went from:

    $1349 in 2007
    down to $1099 in 2008
    then back up to $1599 in 2009

    Why the big jumps in prices? SuperDave?

    Note change in components from year to year. 2007 to 2008 could have down spec'd: rear derailleur went to 105 from Ultegra, different crankset, different wheels. 2009 could be up spec'd from 2007 and 2008: Shimano Hollowtech crankset, carbon fiber seat stays, carbon fiber steerer, and general increases due to material costs and dollar exchange rate.

    Isn't that kinda strange to see a mfr. roller-coaster like that? It seems like they either go one way or the other.

    Concur, Hawkfan79. That price roller coaster is odd. I've tracked prices of models that I've had over the past 5 years, and have not seen a price drop between years. Makes me wonder if the price shown for the 2008 is an honest error. The BikePedia prices for my bicycles has been valid.
