Nothing is free, the cost of the tuneups is included in the slightly higher price. For the price his LBS wants to sell a Stumpjumper comp he can get this http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/mot … team_x.htm. Look at the Specialized site, they are selling it for 150 or so more dollars than Specialized Suggested retail price. http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/SBC … temId=9247

You gotta read the fine print…Specialized doesnt ship online orders unless you are an authorized dealer. I bought online for my first and I truly regret it. I had to mend some fences at the LBS but after buying a set of $900 wheels all was well again(and other countless items).
