    Timing of bike purchase with BD

    I am seeing some good deals on BikesDirect, but my wife thinks I should wait until Spring to see if there are any better deals.

    LBS' deals are not good right now.

    In your experience, does BD have better deals in Feb/Mar instead of January? I am looking at road bikes in the $800 to $1200 range.

    Honestly, i did not see huge price drops on BD depends on the time of the year. Usually it ends where all (or needed) sizes are completely sold.

    I monitor BD constantly, but I can't buy it on-line since they have a Bike Direct store in town . And the store might be a little different on prices - you may get a good discount in the end or beginning of the year on what was not sold.

    If I would be in the same shoes I would look at this one
    http://bikesdirect.com/products/windsor/knight_x.htm

    Ultegra 6700 group with OK wheels... Kinesis fork..

    Or for few extra dollars
    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...sprint_xii.htm

    I would not go for cheap carbon with lower grade components

    I don't want to hijack your thread, dude so I'm gonna try to chime in but I was thinking about buying Nashbar's steel framed cyclocross bike for $685 last week. I checked it the next day and it went up to $749. Do prices on Nashbar/BD really fluctuate like that?
