Pricey bike. If they're unwilling to make this change at cost (or less) to make the sale, try another shop. They're mostly all Trek dealers now anyway.

Yep. Go a-la-carte. Find the rims, spokes, and hubs you like, then present them to your local wheel builder.

If that mug had ambushed me with a $50 price tag there would've been no hesitation: "Whoa. Yeah, didn't realize. Let's go ahead and cancel that one out, sorry about that."
