So, 5000 dollars more for less bike is tough to swallow, unless your going to ride it mostly indoors, then it makes total sense

At half the current prices, the zero's would sell.

That's what's interesting, with rebates from the government and company discounts you actually CAN buy one for your 50% off proposal. Local rag, City Bike just did an article about it. I might have the details a little off, don't have the paper in front of me, but I was surprised at how cheap it would be to get onto one.
