When will 2012 Cannondales be available?

Any ideas?

I was looking for a used bike but now the interest free path is tempting me.

Would it be silly to buy new now?

What sort of discounts usually apply to the previous years models?

    I bought the 2010 SuperSix in late October, with a 33% (£1000) discount. There seemed to be a few tempting deals round then.

    I have found a bike I want with 18% discount. so I guess that's not too bad.

    Evans cycles said they are expecting 2012 stock around September but there current stock of Cannondales is already running thin.

    i would buy brand new, if you buy second hand chances are you will only have to replace components sooner

    It had crossed my mind. I am also a little concerned about damaged frames. Then there's is a (slight) chance of it being nicked.

    Nice thing about a new bike is the warranty, especially if it's got an expensive frame.

    Eurobike starts on the 31st August and pretty much everything gets launched then if not before.

    That's BS.

    Evans didn't even have 2011 Cannondale Super Six stock until this month. That's why I bought my 2011 Super Six from Primera Sports in Bournemouth.

    If you want a Cannondale this century, then do not order it from Evans!
