at $700. most things I would buy come with an owner's manual, bikes, tvs, phones, ski boots even.
Why don't skis come with one? that would be so cool. then if you bought your skis off season, you'd have something to do.
What info would be in the manual? that may be the rub, as we've discussed the industries lack of interest in providing information.
(note: the manual that came with my Trek EX was a POS, trying to use the same manual for about 20 models of bike, and lacking, therefore, adequate detail to maintenance the bike. there must be cost involved in having a manual produced)
