DEALS ON GEAR I KNOW FROM STORES I TRUST – BLACK FRIDAY EDITION
As always, there are deals and then there are deals.
This time of year, a lot of the “deals” are on gear that stores are trying to unload because they didn’t sell well during the season, there are only a few sizes left, or there are newer models they want to make room for. It’s not necessarily bad gear but often it’s not the gear that will help you improve your cycling performance or experience, no matter how good the price looks.
The second type of “deals” are on gear that will likely help you better achieve your goals, are some of the better performers in a given category, and are selling below what stores have sold them for during the year or what others stores are selling them for now. Not sure why they are deals on these but, if they can make me a better and happier cyclist, I’m interested.
Finally, there is a third type of deals that are available only to In The Know Cycling readers because these stores want the kind of road cycling enthusiasts that read this site to be their regular customers. With these, I can pick and choose the gear I want and usually get a better deal than I can find elsewhere.
With Black Friday deals showing up every day in my mailbox and likely yours too, I’ve assembled the list of real deals – the second and third types described above. You can go straight to these deals by clicking the links provided and decide if that deal is right for you.
