Carbon bikes from £499? Ribble’s end-of-season bike sale has some truly unbelievable bargains

17 different models hugely reduced, with limited stock available

There are always some decent bargains on bikes at this time of year as manufacturers look to sell of off their end-of-season stock and bring in the new models (most likely with the same frame but a different paintjob).

Now that’s not something we’d normally report on, but some of the discounts in Ribble Cycles’s end-of-season bike clearance sale are so incredible that we just had to tell you about them.

The most eye-catching deal is this Ribble Evo Pro with Shimano Sora 3000 for just £499, surely making it one of the very cheapest, if not the cheapest, carbon road bike on the market.

If you fancy the same frame but with a few more gears, then £999 is enough to get you a Ribble Evo Pro with Shimano Ultegra, with the addition of a 32t sprocket on the cassette to make really steep gradients just that little bit easier.

Unfortunately, as this is an end-of-season sale, Ribble only has these two bikes available with 52cm frames, so if you’re a little taller then the Ultralite Tiagra 4700 can be picked up for just £599, and is available in no fewer than seven different sizes from 48.5cm to 60.5cm.
