Its that time of year!
All our 2015 model bikes have been priced to sell to make way for the new 2016 models that are starting to roll in. If you were waiting for a screaming deal to purchase your dreambike – now is that time. Not only have we marked the 2015 bikes down 10-30% off, we’ve even heavily discounted our 2015 Santa Cruz models – which we rarely do.
Why do we do it?
It’s no secret that buying a new bicycle can be an expensive endeavor, but here at Biker’s Edge we believe it doesn’t have to be. We pride ourselves in our variety of brands, models, and selection in every price point. At the start of every season, over coffee and bagels, we discuss every bicycle that each of our brands are going to carry for the following year and which we should bring into the shop. We hand pick models that are going to be the most cost effective option for our customers in each price point and in each bicycle category (mountain, recreation, road, commuter, etc.) After doing this for every brand in the shop and after several hours of discussion we select the models we’re going to bring in. We then place huge orders to get discounts on pricing and shipping. By doing this we’re able to pass those discounts straight to you, and during the year we sell our bikes for much less than our competition.
However, large orders means a lot of boxes coming in at trucks at a time. If we still have 2015 models on the floor and stored in the back, we have no room to store the plethora of 2016 bikes. Since we’re limited on room and place such large orders, we start discounting our already low priced bikes earlier than most. This means you can get a 2015 model at closeout prices with plenty of season left to shred.
What models are on sale?
The short answer? Any 2015 that is in stock, including Santa Cruz. The long answer? Any 2015 that is in stock, including Santa Cruz with heavy emphasis on in-stock. The emphasis is in place because, while we do order the full size range in most models, we stopped ordering 2015 bikes. This means that the sizing is limited. So if you’re hoping for the deal of the year on your dream bike, you’re going to want to come in as soon as you can to ensure you get the proper size. There is nothing worse than finding the perfect bike for you, in the price point you’ve been waiting for, only to find out that the last 56cm sold yesterday. It happens every year, don’t let it happen to you!
How long are they on sale?
Once we’ve marked down our 2015 models, we keep them marked down until they’ve sold. This often makes one feel like they’ve got time, don’t let this happen to you! Our year end closeout sale doesn’t last long because all the closeout bikes sale so quickly! When we say that these are some of the greatest deals all year long – we mean it. The closeout sale brings greater discounts on bikes than Black Friday. It’s a pretty big deal.
Come in and ride one.
There are many ideals to which we abide by at Biker’s Edge. Customer service is one of those. Our staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly.
