Cannondale 2016 Super 6 Evo Tiagra Men's Road Bike (Black)
The Super 6 Evo Tiagra gives you the exceptional handling of pricier Super 6 models, plus the benefit of a carbon frame, and all for under £800 in the sales which is a pretty darn good bargain. Our road bike expert extroadinaire Warren Rossiter put it through his paces earlier this year, and described it as the Cannondale 'superbike chassis at a much more affordable price', so now with the 39% discount it's great value for money.
If you're tempted, you'll also be pleased to see that this stealth black road machine has a great range of sizes still available at this price, from a size 50 right up to size 60.
BMC Crossmachine CX01 2016 Cyclocross Bike (Frameset)
Cross-racer at the tall end of the spectrum and after a new bike? Build you dream machine starting with this Crossmachine CX01 frameset from BMC, available in a 57cm and 60cm frame.
Carbon frame and forks, carbon seatpost with 3mm offset, derailleur hanger, cable guides and seat clamp are all included, you just need to add the drivetrain of your choice, brakes, wheelset, bars and finishing kit. We also think it looks pretty damn cool with its matt black and red colouring.
Specialized Vita Sport Women's 2016 Hybrid Sports Bike
If you're looking for a bike that's ideal for the daily commute, works well for shop trips, and is great for just riding for fun, then the Specialized Vita Sport is a good choice.
The bike features women's specific geometry, which means it's a little shorter in the reach and gives a more upright riding position than unisex equivalents. It's got the right lugs and bolt holes to allow you to fit full mudguards and pannier racks, so you can get it set up for autumn commutes.
Kona Jake The Snake Carbon (2016)
Another bike for the weight-concious cyclocross racer out there. The 30% discount brings this carbon-framed Jake the Snake from Kona in under £1,400, and for that you get Shimano 105 gearing, Hayes CX Expert mechanical disc brakes, and Clement MXP 700x33c tyres.
Intense Tracer 275A Foundation Build Enduro Mountain Bike (2016)
Rockshox Monarch Air shock, X-Fusion Sweep RL2 forks, Shimano SLX and Deore gearing and hydraulic disc brakes, plus slack geometry. The 2015 version of the Intense Tracer scored a downright grand 4.5 out of 5 stars in our review, and it's a popular beastie.
With a third off the retail price, bringing it under the magic two grand mark, you get a 160mm-travel, 27.5 trail/enduro bike for ragging through the winter, riding through the mud, and generally having a blast while saving cash.
Cube Axial WLS GTC Pro (2016)
The Cube Axial WLS is a women's specific road bike with carbon frame and forks, and it comes in nicely under £1,000 with the generous discount Cycle Surgery is offering. Stealth black with orange detailing, it features full Shimano 105 gearing and a Fulcrum Racing 77 wheelset. Frankly, this is a whole lot of nice bike and parts for the money!
Lapierre Spicy 527 (Black, Yellow, Blue, 2016)
With race geometry partly designed by Enduro legend Nicolas Vouilloz himself, the Lapierre Spicy 527 brings 160mm of suspension to the market plus SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes, SRAM GX/X01 11-speed gearing, and some nice Maxxis High Roller II EXO TLR 27.5x2.3 on the Mavic EN 423 UST Tubeless 27.5" 32H wheelset.
Now for the bad news. Wheelbase only have this bike left in a 43cm and 46cm. Perfect for some, bad luck for others.
