Best sources for fall clearance deals on carbon bikes

What are some of the best sources to watch for good fall / end-of-year sales on quality carbon bikes? I'm looking for a quality entry-level carbon in the $1,000 - $2,500 range.

Scott seems to have an excellent reputation. Looking to avoid less well regarded lines like Raleigh.

Do you happen to live near any bike manufacturers/companies or distributors? Many have end of the year sales that aren't always widely publicized. Give them a call and see what they have to offer.

No name carbon frames and forks, I read, sell Retail direct from China for pretty low prices.

I'm not near any bike factories, so probably will have to look online. What are some sites that have killer deals on quality carbon fiber bikes like Scott?

Also, I'm getting the drift that around October is the best time of year to get deals, right?

Carbon Fiber costs $70.00 an Ounce, as a raw material.

Keep that in mind.
