I just noticed the prices of Sports and Flows have gone up from 1299 to 1469 here lately. Boy, that Black Friday deal for 1049 is sure looking good today! IMO, the Ride 1 up and Sport are very comparable component wise and now price wise. When the Sport was on sale, it was a no brainer between the 2. I will say, the 700 looks pretty sweet. Does Ride 1 Up make a step thru comparable to the Flow?
