For me I see value in bikes at all price levels even rigid steel mountain bikes sub £100 but for me personally Cannondale at their normal pricing are excessively overpriced for most models. However I think that is because I am more product focused but others are more brand focused. I know Cannondale are actually Chinese fuji-ta bikes/frames with geometry tweaks and a few innovations here and there. However this is half price a huge reduction and surely an indicator that it struggled to be sold at it's original price or close to it. This is probably loss making for the importer who is struggling to shift stock unless it is Tri UK who are taking the financial hit. There certainly isn't the margin on this to just half the normal retail price surely.
Has hukd finally accepted that bikes costing over £80 from Tesco can be decent deals now? I'm sure if I posted this a few years ago it would be frozen! Interesting that Ashley owns Tri UK thought he just focused on low end brands.
Nice bike. Thanks for posting. Cant get this sort of thing in my area it would disappear quickly unfortunately.
Tri UK is my local cycle shop, normally very premium but they do have some decent end of season offers. I have no problem with him myself in fact it is good that he has invested so much money into retail and protected many jobs but Tri UK is owned by Mike Ashley.
Gave it heat to balance it
