I'm still considering picking up a new bike at some point in the near future. To a degree I'm happy to wait a few months until making a purchase (as it's winter in the UK, so it's not really that ideal for getting into cycling).
Up until now the retail sales (stores trying to shift stock to tentative buyers due to the UK recession and economic downturn) haven't really passed on to bikes that I've seen. Now there's 17% off from one of the main bike shops I was looking at.
Is it worth utilising this offer, or is it likely prices will come down further in the following months?
THis time of year there are usually some 08's left in stock that sell at a discount.
You didn't say what level of bike you are looking at. I doubt entry level bikes get much cheaper than that, but mid level to upper level bikes might. Course, that's just me, throwing out unfounded babble.
The price range I was looking at was around £850-£1000. Make wise I've been considering a Scott bike of some sort. The 09 Scale 50 was set at a RRP of around £930. With the discounts in place at the moment that appears to be dropped £787.67 which feels like a decent discount?
