Why does Amazon have this book priced at $185.21 for a new copy and $79.96 for used? This book lists for $16.95 and has an online price of $12.20 at Barnes & Noble's web site. Come on, Amazon, you're supposed to be good at this.

According to the BikeSnobNYC website, it is because the initial prinitng has sold out. Since Amazon has no copies to sell until the next prinitng, they can only sell used copies and new copies from other booksellers. Check back in a few weeks and Amazon will have it, or check other booksellers who may still have some copies from the initial printing.

The publisher informed me that a second printing will be available in a couple if weeks and advised against overpaying for this book. I'm surprised Amazon doesn't monitor and control their resellers better to prevent them from price gouging.
