Forget Amazon if you're a cyclist, I've found much better Prime Day deals on fully-built bikes and kit elsewhere

There are some big bike brand discounts to be discovered out there, the trick is knowing where to look

No you aren't imaging things, we really are on to Amazon Prime Day take two for this year. To be fair, there are some savings to be had, I even shared my very practical list of the best Amazon Prime Day deals. Which was full of all very functional and rational buying advice. 

While Amazon is a great marketplace for lots general sports gear, any seasoned cyclist will know it's limitations when it comes to cycling specific kit, especially fully build bikes, or more specialist pieces of kit. 

Cannondale Topstone 4: was $1,374.99now $1,174.95 at Mike's bikes  

Cannondale Topstone 4: was $1,374.99 now $1,174.95 at Mike's bikes  

Having reviewed the Cannondale Topstone 4, we found it to be an excellent ride and versatile frameset. There are some compromises, though, to be found in the mechanical disc brakes, and it's not the speediest road going bike. 

But if you're looking for an bike that can handle a variety of non-paved surfaces then you'll find this comfortable and fast option. But with an additional 15% off, you'll be hard pressed to find another frameset as good as this at a comparable price

Rondo Ruut ST2 : was $2,599.99now $1,948.95 at Mike's Bikes 

Rondo Ruut ST2 : was $2,599.99 now $1,948.95 at Mike's Bikes 

This is a tidy 25% discount on the Rondo Ruut ST2. The USP for the RUUT is the duel geo, with what the brand call its TWINTIP carbon fork, allowing the bike to flip between a speedier sporty bike, or riding in the slacker setting for multi-day gravel adventures. 

We reviewed the full carbon Rondo Ruut CF2 2x version, and found lots of plus points, but could have been better spec'd - so this SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain and mechanical Rever MCX disc brakes feels a lot fairer at this price point. The components have even been chosen especially for their reputations for reliability and ease of maintenance.

Ridley Kanzo A Gravel Bike: was $2,054 now $847.99 at Wiggle

Ridley Kanzo A Gravel Bike: was $2,054 now $847.99 at Wiggle

This is a cracking 59% off the Ridley Kanzo A adventure bike, which now comes in well under the $1,000 mark. 

Equipped with SRAM Apex 1x 11 speed and mechanical disc brakes, it's temping to draw comparisons to the Rondo Ruut ST2. Although you do get an aluminium frame, this carbon forked bike doesn't quite have the same versatility due to no flipflop fork positioning.

The onboard mounting points for fenders or luggage makes it a great all day adventure option - although it looks like you might be limited to 40mm tyres.

Cannondale Treadwell EQ DLX Remixte: was $1,349.99now $999.95 at Mike's Bikes

Cannondale Treadwell EQ DLX Remixte: was $1,349.99 now $999.95 at Mike's Bikes

If you're looking for a practical commuter that won't break the bank, the Treadwell could be for you. The Treadwell features mudguard, and a front and rear rack as standard. Disc brakes will also ensure you can stop in all weather.

Cannondale Trail Balance: was $239.99 now $189.95 at Mike's Bikes 

Cannondale Trail Balance: was $239.99 now $189.95 at Mike's Bikes 

For any 'mini-shredders' there's currently 21% off Cannondale's Trail Balance bike - which comes with a pleasing amount of quintessentially Cannondale attention to detail.

There's a lil’ Lefty fork and even a 'Righty' chainstay - a feature which doesn't even grace the bikes of the pros, very cutting edge. 

The frame is made from Cannondale's SmartForm C3 Alloy, which doesn't have quite as good a strength to weight ratio as the  SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy used on Cannondale's excellent CAAD13 aluminum race bike - although parents will be thankful that it's more cost-effective to produce. You can't spoil them, eh?

Orro Gold Evo 7000: Was $1999 now $1377.99 at Wiggle 

Orro Gold Evo 7000: Was $1999 now $1377.99 at Wiggle 

It's been a while since we last saw an Orro bike here at CW Towers, but whenever we have, we've really liked them for their well judged geometry and value for money. This 31% saving isn't even the best on offer at Wiggle, with some discounted to 38% off, but the Gold Evo 7000 does have most sizes still in stock, so most folk should be sure to bag a bargain. 

Continental GP5000 Clincher Tire: was $78.95, now from $43.99 at Wiggle 

Continental GP5000 Clincher Tire: was $78.95, now from $43.99 at Wiggle 

These tires are one of the all time greats, which we raved about in the l Continental GP5000 review, finding it capable of combining high levels of grip with low levels of rolling resistance - as well as being competitively lightweight without completely sacrificing puncture resistance. 

To get the biggest discount you do need to opt for the 23mm version, so realistically you'll more likely pay the $50.99. 

Fulcrum Racing 6 C17 road wheelset: Was $349 now $177.49 at Wiggle 

Fulcrum Racing 6 C17 road wheelset: Was $349 now $177.49 at Wiggle 

Rim brake wheels are becoming an increasingly rear bread these days, and finding a decent pair even harder. We tested a pair of the Fulcrum Racing 4 C17 wheelset early this year, and found them one of the few solid  options left for race bikes with rim brakes. While these Racing 6 C17's are a slightly lower spec, you can generally trust Fulcrum to do a good job with all it's wheel sets, making the $171 saving a great deal. 

Smith Persist Mips Bike Helmet: was $120 now $47.93 at REI

Smith Persist Mips Bike Helmet: was $120 now $47.93 at REI

The Smith brand of bike helmets is always really popular and this impressive 60% saving won't hang around for long. Reviews here at Cycling Weekly have constantly come up with high scores, the most recent being the Smith Optics Trace MIPS. They aren't the smallest profile lid, but opting for the darker colour way that's on offer here should help to tone down the proportion if you do have a petite head. 

Cannondale Quick 24 Kids' Bike: was $500 now $374.93 at REI

Cannondale Quick 24 Kids' Bike: was $500 now $374.93 at REI

This may still seem like a lot of cash for child's set of two wheels, but you honestly won't regret buying them one of the best kid's bikes as it will give them a life long love of cycling. 

This came up as best for transitioning to adult bikes in our guide, with the perks of a lightweight alloy frame and fork, a decent spread of 7-speed 11-28t gears. The tires are narrow, so it's a great option for building up the miles on paved cycleways, and you can always swap over to more aggressive tires for off road making it a versatile bike.  

Orro Terra C Ekar: was £3,599.99 now £2,299 at Merlin Cycles

Orro Terra C Ekar: was £3,599.99 now £2,299 at Merlin Cycles

This huge 38% saving on the Orro Terra C Ekar is not to be sniffed at, as one of the few bikes to feature Campagnolo Ekar gravel specific groupset. 

The carbon frameset and Ekar 1x hydraulic disc comes with 40t chainring and a 13speed cassette, with a healthy spread of 9-42t gears, making pretty much most terrains surmountable.  

There appears to be a few retailers offering on the Orro Terra C Ekar at the moment, and this is one of the best with the most size options still available

Giant Revolt Advanced 2: was £2,599 Now £1,899 at Tredz

Giant Revolt Advanced 2: was £2,599 Now £1,899 at Tredz

The Giant Revolt Advanced Pro has won Cycling Weekly's Gravel Bike of the Year award, and while this is a slightly different version, they will share a lot of DNA.

This has been on offer since the last Amazon Prime Day, but the good news is there's now a future £50 off, making this a very healthy £700 saving. A great offer for the full carbon bike, which comes equipped with Shimano GRX 2x11 hydraulic groupset. 

A quick price check shows the Giant Revolt Advanced 2 is on sale from Giant direct, but for £2,075 so this seems to be a hot offer from Tredz

Cannondale CAAD Optimo 2 2023: was £1,150.00 now £799.00 at Sigma Sports

Cannondale CAAD Optimo 2 2023: was £1,150.00 now £799.00 at Sigma Sports

Cannondale has long been known as one of the experts in aluminum bike technology. The Optimo sits as the brand's entry-level race bike. This model features 10-speed tiagra shifting, and a lightweight carbon fork making, which coupled with race geometry, make it a great first race bike, especially with 31% off! The Optimo also features mudguard mounts for those looking for a winter steed!

Specialized Diverge E5 Brassy Yellowwas £1,300.00now £899 at Rutland Cycling

Specialized Diverge E5 Brassy Yellow: was £1,300.00 now £899 at Rutland Cycling

Specialized's Diverge is an all-road bike, perfect for those looking to explore gravel riding, or those looking for a capable commuter bike. The E5 is specced with Claris shifting and also features mudguard and rack mounts. The mechanical disc brakes will keep you safe in all weather - and you certainly won't be missed with that yellow paint job!

There's been a deal on this bike for a while, and we thought the last £300 saving was decent, but now it's an even better £400! There is currently stock in most sizes, but probably not for long at this price.  

Vittoria Corsa G2.0 Clincher: was £70.00, now from £38.00 at Sigma Sports

Vittoria Corsa G2.0 Clincher: was £70.00, now from £38.00 at Sigma Sports

Vittoria's Corsa G2.0 tyres really need no introduction, being blisteringly fast and surprisingly robust. They are pretty readily available over on Amazon, but not close to being at the same discount. As with most tyre offers, the deal does depend on tyre size, with usually the 23m being the cheapest, so to discover the best saving on the 25mm is a nice surprise and searching other retailers this appears to be the cheapest all round.
