Where can I find the best Black Friday bike deals?

All of the big cycling retailers have followed the pattern of great deals of tech products by more general retailers, offering huge discounts on bikes for Black Friday. Coming at the end of year, this is useful for retailers to boost their 2016 sales, and also help to shift 2016 stock in order to make space in their warehouses for 2017 bikes, perhaps equipped with the new Shimano Dura-Ace groupset.

Black Friday 2016 at Evans Cycles

Of all the big names, Evans Cycles probably has the best range manufacturers from which to pick the best Black Friday bike deals, with bikes from road bikes from BMC, Specialized, Trek, Bianchi, Fuji, and Pinnacle all being on the company’s books. Plus, there’s always the option to pop into a bricks and mortar store too.

Black Friday 2016 at Wiggle

The best Black Friday bike deals at Wiggle are likely to be found on Eastway bikes, which are produced by Wiggle, thus giving the company the ability to fully control the price. Also likely to be offered at a good discount are bikes from Felt, De Rosa, Eddy Merckx, GT, and Colnago, with a number of models from each company available to buy online.

Black Friday 2016 at Chain Reaction Cycles

The pick of the Chain Reaction Black Friday deals are likely to be on Vitus bikes, which (as with Castaway with Wiggle) are owned and produced by Chain Reaction. The Northern Irish company also stocks bikes from Cube, Fuji, Ghost, and Raleigh, so expect to see discounts on those too.

Black Friday 2016 at Ribble Cycles

Ribble Cycles’ Black Friday deals are likely to focus on a mixture of the company’s own bikes, and other brand’s clothing and equipment. Ribble regularly promotes a bike of the week on Facebook, with bike discounts on pre-built bikes, so expect a similar pattern but on a much bigger scale on the week leading up to Black Friday.

Black Friday 2016 at Amazon

Amazon might not seem like the natural place to go in search of Black Friday bike deals, but the huge online retailer actually has a surprising array of half-decent cycling kit to choose from. For example there were some great discounts on Garmin Edge computers for Amazon Prime Day, so expect to see the same sort of deals for Black Friday.

Black Friday 2016 at Sigma Sport

Sigma Sport has a selection Black Friday bike deals to choose from, both on its website, and in its West London store. Expect discounts on a wide range of different products, including Mavic wheels, Giro shoes and helmets, and Cannondale bikes, with deals starting from the Monday before Black Friday.

Black Friday 2016 on the high street

Of course the other option is to shop local. A lot of local bike shops will be getting into the spirit of things with discounts of their own, and although these Black Friday bike deals might not always be at the levels on offer by the big online retailers, it does give you the opportunity to support a local business, and you can always rely on excellent customer service and on-hand mechanics that you won’t get from anything on the other side of a computer screen.

When will these Black Friday bike deals be available?

Different retailers take different approaches to what is the busiest shopping day of the year, so Black Friday bike deals won’t necessarily become available at 00:01 on 25 November.

Wiggle already has a page on its website that includes a countdown to Black Friday, with the retailer kicking off its deals at midnight on Black Friday in previous years, then continuing them through the weekend, before bringing out some fresh bargains for Cyber Monday three days later. Expect to see the same pattern continue this year.

In contrast Chain Reaction unleashed some of its Black Friday bike deals four weeks before the day itself. The deals were then updated each week leading up to the release of some of the biggest discounts on Black Friday itself. So maybe we should stay tuned from the last week of October for some of Chain Reaction Cycles’ best Black Friday bike deals.

What is Black Friday?

For consumers and retailers in the UK, Black Friday is a recent phenomenon, but it has been going strong the United States for decades.

Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving (which in 2016 is 25 November), and is traditionally seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season, with high street retailers opening their doors at the crack of dawn and offering big discounts for shoppers who have set their alarm clocks.

The rise of internet shopping has allowed the Black Friday tradition to spread throughout the world, with the UK’s bike retailers like Wiggle, Chain Reaction Cycles, Evans Cycles, and Ribble Cycles all getting caught up in the scramble to get shoppers to part with their cash.

    On the NFTO website – There’s very cheap Pro Castelli Kit Half price + 10% christmas discount on all products – If you like NFTO team colours! Just picked up a thermal jersey…

    You should also check out Fatbirds they’re smashing it! I was just checking out the newsletter. They’ve got a minimum of 15% off all bikes, Min 20% off lights and tools, up to 70% off helmets and locks, up to 50% off pedals and loads more. I’m not sure what’s going on there but they’ve gone mental!

  • Some of these deals aren’t as good as they look at first glance. The Ultegra groupset has been available for similar amounts throughout the year. Next we’ll have a deal for 105 at just under £300, oh but wait, that’s not new either. So to say Ultegra is £999.99 is stretching it a bit. When it first came out it was probably closer to that price, but it’s been cheaper for most of the year! Don’t get sucked in!
