Half price carbon road bike

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Half price carbon road bike

I am not in the market for a road bike, carbon or otherwise, nor could I gainsay what is a good deal, but thought some people here might be interested: Ridley Noah Force 22 Complete Road Bike - 2016 - Up to 70% Off | Steep and Cheap

A number of other vendors are selling them for a similar price. There must be a bunch of them and they are not inventory.

Still looks to be a good deal.

Are you seeing this at Competitive Cyclist, Backcountry and Steep and Cheap? Those are all the same company. Ridley is well discounted at that chain.

That's a good deal on what's probably a 17lbs bike stock (listed as 17.1 lbs medium). With new wheels and a few tweaks you probably get it within spitting distance of 15lbs for <$2500.

Just three problems:
1) I don't need a new bike.
2) I don't need a new road bike.
3) SRAM. (I just don't like the double-tap shifting, this is a personal issue, it works flawlessly).
