I've just picked up the 2012 Felt Z6. Can't wait for delivery!!!

Now, I'm not a complete idiot, but I do need to learn quite a lot about bicycle care and maintenance, so you'll all have to forgive me if this is the beginning of a lot of possibly naive and daft questions!

Best of both worlds??? Sensa have 2013 bikes at reduced prices, and they are genuine reductions as you can see the RRP on the Sensa website.

In my hunt for a 2012 Felt F95 I came across a very nice shop that were willing to let me have the 2013 model for the same 2012 discount price as they didn't have my size available but were still advertising it as in stock on their site. Very happy bunny with that little deal.

I went to a shop to buy a 2012 model in the sale but ended up with a 2013 model with slight discount which I'm hoping to pick up in the next couple of weeks.

I've spent the last 3 or 4 weeks buying pedals, garmins, bottles, cages ect to dress it up when in arrives.

It works out to around ##% without getting my calculator out. I was happy with that because I had a budget I wasn't going over and I've hit it bang on.

Good work

I went into cycle surgery where I plan to get my bike but they seem so rigid in pricing, but that's the point here.

Anyone looking for a good deal here's some on here with full carbon from £700

I recently bought a 2013 Specialized Allez Elite with 25% off RRP. I had originally ordered a 2012 Allez from the same company but was told the next day that although the bike was showing as in stock on the website they didn't actually have any. After some discussion I was offered the 2013 Elite with discount. I paid a bit more in the end but got a great deal :D

Just ordered a 2013 Canyon Aeroad. No opp for discount but in my opinion they are very good VFM in the first place.

Did you consider new 2012 model, as they are generally better value

Yes I did but the right one (colour, spec, size etc) didn't come up. I even considered a nearly new one, guessing they are returns and ex press / demo bikes but again nothing was quite right and the savings weren't good enough to justify the scratches etc.
