Do Ribble have a sale?

Looking to buy a Ribble r872 as my first real road bike but caught in indecision.

I know that around September/October is the time when bikes are reduced in anticipation of the new models, but do Ribble do the same? Their models seem to be around for a few years without really changing.

I would like to buy it now but am worried that I'll see it for half the price in a couple of weeks!

    They have an annual sale of leftover stuff - eg frames with cosmetic damage etc but otherwise no. Ribble are already cheap; they don't need to make the bikes any cheaper to sell them!

    Yes. You know it's coming because they raise the price of everything just before.

    Lol - this is true. They do have eg 10% sales but that is usually preceeded by a 5% price hike which then drops back after the sales. Not sure if they do those on the bikes though. And they are randomly timed.
