Edinburgh Bikes Sale starts 2nd Sept

I got a flyer through the door today from Edinburgh Bikes. Their sale starts on Saturday.

Of note is the
Revolution Cuillin '05 model for £135 - good for those of you who missed out on this one
Specialized Allez Triple '06 for £379.95
Giant XTC SX '06 £499

Also, the Cateye EL500 LED half price at £24.95
Scwalbe City Jet 26*1.5" tyres £5.95

THis is obviously their teaser stuff, I'm hoping there will be a lot more on the day.

I got the leaflet too - wonder exactly when the sale does start? It says 10th - 18th Sept on the back, with a website preview late on Friday 9th.

I hope it is that week - very interested in the Cuillin 05, but I'm in Prague with my band from Saturday 2nd until the middle of next week.

Yeah, my mistake with the Allez price, I've changed it now.

My leaflet says the sale starts on the 2nd and finishes on the 10th.

Great price on the Allez.

We are moving to a house soon which has a massive shed, so I should have space for another bike just for long road rides - very tempted.

Mine says that on the front - different dates on the back.

Just had an e-mail...

"Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op End of Season Sale 2-10 September 2006
The Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op One Week In September Sale starts 10:00am Saturday 2 September and finishes at 6:00pm Sunday 10 September. We apologise if you have received any information that conflicts with these dates. We repeat: our End of Season sale runs from 2 September till 10 September."

Along with an 8 page pdf list of bikes in the sale, 11 pages of accessories and 22 pages of clothes.

As it was mentioned by various people earlier... The Allez Triple is "silver 54cm" (Is that a small size?). There's also various Allez Doubles too (in 56 and 62cm sizes for £399). (Means nothing to me. I was after a Revolution courier!)

Please could someone check the PDF to see if the Revolution Trailfinder is in the sale (before I go and buy one!)?

Thanks!

The Allez Triple is actually on the site for a touch over £320, rather than the £380 mentioned in the advert.

Arggh, more temptation :/

Im looking for a cheap starter bike really, to get my obese lardy ass off the couch. The Cullin '05 looks spot on.

Would there be any point buying one now, with the autumn/winter months coming in for a starter/casual rider? Im assuming now is the cheapest time to buy them (End of Summer but before Xmas)

Absolutely mate. Get yourself out at the weekend!! I've got a Trek 1400 at the moment, and would like a nicely put together, cheap MTB, so may go for the Cullin too.
