    Does Bikesdirect ever have a sale or like a fall clearance?

    I think they run on a pretty low margin, and I don't recall seeing a sale.

    Mike posts here, look in the group buy or for sale forum for last year's group buy offer for Bikeforums members, and find him,, and send him a PM to ask him...

    So, actually, wait and see if he makes another Christmas offer this year. Last year as I recall it sounded like it would be an annual thing. Assuming that one of the items he decides to offer fits your needs, he had some nice deals last year. (Nothing I wanted, but even then I was tempted).

    I seem to recall the Mike posted a bunch of great deals in December IIRC. Lots of closout stuff and odd sizes, but some pretty good deals. I can't remember if it was here or another forum.

    Guess I am just that tight.

    Why pay 110% of cost when if I could wait a month or 2 and have a chance to pay 105% of cost? I currently have a bike that I can ride just fine.

    Every bike that is currently for sale on our site OR in any shop is effectively 'on sale'

    The falling value of the US Dollar and the increasing price in Oil, Steel, and Aluminum is resulting in a 15 to 25 percent increase in all bicycle items. These new prices have been paid by imports for months and are just now starting to be passed along to dealers who will pass them along to consumers.

    weather buying from us or other online seller or from local bike shop - now is the time to move -- by fall prices will be much higher. And this is the first year in about 20 years that bike distributors will not have any meaningful closeouts on last years models.

    In addition, with the increase in world wide bike demand; most factories have doubled their lead time - thus there maybe some shortages to boot.

    Strange things happen when oil goes from $50 a barrel; to $100; to $120; to $145

    While any retailer worth his weight would always say "buy now", I think you a probably right in this case.

    Thanks so much for posting

    Now if I can only make up my mind on which bike to purchase.
