Every little helps and 25 per cent off helps quite a lot so if you're planning some shopping soon and you've got a branch of Evans near by it might be worth grabbing a copy of the The Times tomorrow.
The word is that tomorrow's edition of the paper is offering a 25 per cent off voucher to its readers which it reckons could save you up to £1,300… mind you you'd have to be spending £5,200 (yes we can do simple sums) to save that amount… so you're going to have to go higher than one of those new fangled Trek Domanes at £3,700 to get the full amount. Oh, and as far as we can tell the discount only applies to selected ranges of bikes, so not sure if you can have a Domane… but hey, if you don't ask.
Mind you Evans are already offering up to a third off of all their road bikes so the potential saving on list price with another 25 per cent off for a bike could be pretty big – they've got big reductions on other stuff too.
Presumably you don't have to spend the voucher tomorrow too but it probably wouldn't be a good idea to save it for Christmas.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
