Best time for a bargain
edited January 2009
Am looking for a new bike for commuting to work and wondered when the best time too pick up a bargain is.
p.s sorry if this has been posted before
Personally, I think now.
There are sales on with stores trying to clear out 2008 stock. There seems to have been a trend to downgrade the spec on bikes from 2008-09, or raise the prices, so an 08 model is better value anyway. Coupled with extra discounts, I'd say there's no better time.
I'm not a shopkeeper, btw.
Yep, now would be a good time to look.

Now! Not 7 days ago when I ordered my Giant SCR1.5 2008 from Wiggle there were 10 in stock, now there is 1!!
...now, as last years colours are being sold off cheap to make way for the new paint jobs...
...all the way...'til the wheels fall off and burn...
