50% off GTs at Wiggle

Postby Mark909 » Sun Oct 14, 2012 10:39 am

I just noticed that wiggle have GT Avalanche 1 and 2 and GT Zaskar on sale with 50% off. Seems like a good deal to me. Though id post it in case anyones looking for a new bike at the moment. They've still got a decent range of sizes as well.

I'm after a new bike to replace my recently stolen mongoose tryax elite........ Would either the avalanche 1 or zaskar comp be better than a voodoo hoodoo?

Cheers

The Zaskar comp is on a par with a Hoodoo, the fork being not quite as good (but pretty much), the avalanche is not as good.

So the GT Zaskar wouldn't be worth the extra £100 ish that is would cost over the Voodoo Hoodoo?

I do prefer the look of the GT though, the matt paint on the Voodoo's look a bit 'cheap'.

The Zaskar is definitely worth the extra. Lighter, better fork, better parts.

Do you use topcashback or the like? Will (eventually) get a refund of a couple % on the purchase so will make it cheaper!

The discounts are changing on some items ... there's now another £50 off the Felt Nine Comp 2012 (now £550) ... my son's going to be happy at Christmas. :mrgreen:

Edited to add current price.

I asked for a quote on the Felt Nine Comp through our C2W scheme and it was £1100!

If I wasn't skint at the moment I'd just buy it.

Never heard of a Felt Nine Comp 2012. How do these compare to the GT's (at this price i guess it would be compared to a zaskar?) or a Hoodoo???

Just collected and setup the Felt 9 Comp (CityLink are useless). I'm impressed and wished I had one. WIggle had setup and packed the bike very well (including Haribo). I see the price is now a tad higher at £599.

Good value indeed, but I would probably still have the (cheaper) Radon Team 7.0

+ some other bikes.
