929.99 was a LOT more than I really wanted to pay...but given the prices used bikes are pulling, I can't see spending $650 on an unknown unit when I can have one brand new for not THAT much more. Plus, it's more bike than I need, so it should probably last me the rest of my life with general maintenance.

I'll keep looking at the used market to see if I can find a gem...but for now, I'll plan on buying the Dual Sport 3 when it comes in. I got it in Grey...they had one in a bright orange, but that's just not me.
The extra money spent up front for the piece of mind knowing that I’m the very first rider and all components are brand new. Was money saved in the long run, IMO anyway. It’s why I went out and bought new for myself and the Mrs too. Spent a little more maybe than I wanted, but it was so worth it!!

I will warn you though, this relearned fun has opened a whole new can of worms... I still looking online too. Now I want to find a vintage commuter. Clean it up and tow our kids around with it. AND my buddy let me ride his fat bike last winter... Let’s just say, its on ‘the list’ too LMAO!!

Alright, so I got the call today that my bike was ready. Picked it up, got some accessories, looks nice, I like it. Just rode it around the house a little bit because I didn't really have a lot of time.

Have a question though, the specs online say the bike is supposed to come equipped with Bontrager GR1 Expert tires...and my bike has Continental Contact Plus. These seem to be more road than off, and I do plan to do some off road with this bike.

Did they take my more expensive tires to sell aftermarket and give me some cheaper tires? It says the Bontrager GR1 tires are in stock at the store I bought the bike from, so I don't think it's an issue with the OEM tire being out of stock or unavailable. Could just be an honest mistake?

How pissed off should I be?

EDIT: I'm about a 5/10 right now...because there might be a reasonable explanation for this...but if they took the tires I was supposed to have off to sell, and gave me these...I'm going to be like 8/10.

I'm going to call them tomorrow.
