Best Black Friday bike deals 2018

Looking for a deal on a brand new bike? The Black Friday sales could represent the perfect hunting ground

The cycling industry naturally offers discounts on bikes through autumn and winter – because that’s when new season models are filtering in and discontinued stock needs to be turfed out.

Since model year updates largely involve small changes to adjust compliance, aerodynamics and the like (as well as a new colour scheme) in most cases unless you want the most up-to-date super optimised machine, last year’s version with a hefty discount will serve you well.

All of this coincides excellently with Black Friday – the bumper sales that fall at just the right time of year.

The best Black Friday bike deals 2018

Ribble R872 Black Friday was £1600, now £999

Read more: Ribble R872 review 

The Ribble R872 is one of our favourite bikes, in fact it made it into our Editor’s Choice awards last year. Which means we were excited to see the brand has launched a special Black Friday model for a rather incredible £999 – that’s £600 off.

For a penny under £1k, you get a Vision Team 35 Comp Wheelset, fitted with Continental UltraSport II tyres and a Shimano Ultegra groupset. The finishing kit is Deda.

The wheelbase is short for a nippy ride, and the geo keeps it race bred, but there’s plenty of comfort in the frame for those looking to be out all day.

BMC Roadmachine 02 2018 was £335o, now £2345

The BMC Roadmachine is an endurance bike that doesn’t compromise anywhere else. Just because it’s comfortable doesn’t mean it’s heavy, nor does it mean it’s not aerodynamic, either.

This particular model comes with Shimano Ultegra, disc brakes and DT Swiss wheels.

Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc 105 was £2199, now £1500

Read more: Cannondale Synapse review

The Cannondale Synapse is another excellent endurance bike that has a serious turn of speed. The wizards at Cannondale have made the carbon comfortable where it needs to be comfortable and stiff where it needs to be stiff – giving the Synapse a real turn of speed.
