    so it was 35% off yesteday and 50% today. Is it possible that they could 80% reduction or more?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,038 ✭✭✭rob1891


    The results of Omega Pharma-Lotto at the end of each stage accumulate to daily discounts of upto 50% on selected framesets. So follow the team at the Tour and chase down the biggest discounts!

    50% is the max discount apparently ... a lot of these deals are almost completely out of stock ... great if you are bizarrely proportioned though XS/XL ;-)

    Just ordered the black frame of this in 60 cm, my finger slipped...

    Was tempted to go for a 62cm white, but may have been slightly too large for me (191cm - 6'3.5")

    A bit of a joke - unless you're very small or very tall!

    It was'nt yesterday as there were plenty of frames in each size.

    I have been looking to buy a bike for the OH, I might well buy one of those XS frames and put a bike together for her. The budget would be getting blown by +100% but I feel the need for a white bike in our household. Hmmm, €400 frame, €400 groupset, €300 wheels, €130 bars, saddle and pedals? Could be a plan!

    ok quick question on sizing, i input my measurements into the pps thing and it says xs for me which sounds odd:

    height: 173cm
    torso: 80cm
    inseam: 80cm
    arms: 77cm

    does XS sound right?

    ok quick question on sizing, i input my

    I put in mine and it said to get a 54 and I'd be fairly sure its a 56 I need. Maybe it is underestimating.

    I was fairly excited about all this until I saw there are no 56s left in any bike or frame.

    Maybe it's directing you to whatever they have left!

    Just compared it to the measurements on my current bike and it's almost the same bar the seat tube height. A slightly longer seatpost should fix that...

    .. based on the daily performance of Omega Pharma-Lotto riders in the TDF.

    I've just ordered a frameset at a 40% discount. It was 50% some day during the week which might account for the now seemingly low stock levels.

    The discounts are calculated by the following -

    On the first day of the Tour we kick-off with a discount of 10% which we're donating so to speak as an advance on a hopefully successful race. After that we'll leave the racing to the riders.

    It's very easy to calculate the available daily discounts. If the best Omega Pharma-Lotto rider (or the team as the case may be) is in the top 10 of any of the competitions, you will receive a discount of 10% per competition. If the best rider (or team as the case may be) is in the top 20, you'll receive a 5% discount per competition. .

    The following competitions are included in the calculation of discounts:
    • Current day's stage
    • Overall standings in the green jersey competition (best sprinter)
    • Overall standings in the polka dot jersey competition (best climber)
    • Overall standings in the yellow jersey competition (overall winner)
    • Best team competition

    Just saw that a thread was already started here about this. Should have known. Apologies for the duplication. Feel free to ignore.

    [mod note: threads merged]


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,508 ✭✭✭Lemag


    Discount currently at 45%. Could be as good as it's going to get. Currently 10th for the polka dot jersey so just about qualifying for the 10% and 15th for the the green jersey with a good bit to make up to crack the top 10. The only framesets left are the Ultimate CF and in a limited size range.

    anyone know if this will happen this year?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,615 ✭✭✭Hail 2 Da Thief


    I hope not as I fear the temptation would be too hard to fight!:o


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,508 ✭✭✭Lemag

    We'll find out in a few days :)

    Going by last years calculation of discounts, Saturday could have very good prices indeed (Gilbert in yellow and green?). Is this on full bikes as well?

    Just wondering how you fitted with the 60cm frame, I'm same height and the canyon calculator is giving me a 62. I'm waiting to pounce on the "Add to basket" if any discount is offered.

    Email response from Canyon UK:
    Hi Phillip,

    We don't know of anything specific but as the event is so close it's probably worth hanging on to see.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

    Sincerely,

    Cullen Ward - Canyon UK

    Discounts were offer last year on complete bikes. However, rather than basing them on the performances of Omega Pharma-Lotto, they were set.

    I'd be surprised if they were to offer similar discounts this year. They've probably got a much bigger share of the market now (job done) and their expectations of the Omega Pharma-Lotto are probably higher.

    just reading cyling+ nd there was an advert with that url on it

    doing nothing yet though


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,414 ✭✭✭Bunnyhopper


    I just noticed a few reductions in the roadie section on their site

    Ultimate AL frameset 746 down from 799,
    Ultimate CF 9.0 SL 2499 down from 2699,
    Ultimate CF SLX 9.0 3349 down from 3599,
    Aeroad CF 9.0 SL 3449 down from 3699.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,508 ✭✭✭Lemag


    On the MTB side of things

    Grand Canyon CF 9.0 LTD 4999 - 4499
    Nerve XC 6.0 1499 - 1399
    Strive ES 7.0 1999 - 1849

    Nothing to write home about yet. However, if I find out tomorrow that they've matched last year's offers then I'll find it difficult not to add to the collection.

    It's back :D But different. I haven't figured it out yet. Something about betting :confused: They are chucking some free stuff in with certain bikes rather than reducing their prices.

    The betting game -

    After registering, one has to bet daily on whether one thinks that each of Gilbert, Greipel and Van Den Broeck will improve or falter in the general classification. A point is awarded for each correct prediction. If one has accumulated a total of 7 or more points by the fist rest day they are entered into a draw one of 3 autographed jerseys. 14 points or more for the second day and be entered into a similar draw. 21+ points at the end of the Tour and be entered into a draw for 3 framesets and 3 jerseys.

    Pretty crap really. Unless I win something ;)
