    Cyclesuperstore are getting some bikes in every now and then. Give them a shout, might be worth a shot.

    If you're willing to travel, Revolve cycle shop in Gorey have a large selection of Trek bikes.

    Entry level Trek road bikes are a bit of a piss take in terms of price/spec these days and they are not alone unfortunately :(

    On the plus side they are among the best looking entry level bikes this year.

    Certainly prices have gone up seems any bike with 105 is around 1.6k now from what I have seen .

    I got a bike for my daughter for Christmas and the guy in the store was telling me that there is a massive issue with logistics, he said effectively the factory can say when the bike can be shipped but the delivery bit is just a mess and no one will give firm dates as they just don’t know.

    Don't even consider halfords for a kids Christmas bike, even last year parents were let down. Disaster



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,526 ✭✭✭✭ salmocab


    No it was a proper bike shop. Luckily they had what I wanted in their warehouse

    It's called the bike shop..it will be hard anywhere else to get a bike over brexit

    brexit is not the main issue with getting bikes. bikes aren't made in britain, bar a few select makes.

    I was looking at a Scott in Wheelworx last week with a sticker press of €8999.

    Care to hazard a guess as to what groupset was on it for that money?

    I ordered a bike from CSS in August, they're now expecting delivery in February!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,438 ✭✭✭ rolling boh


    That seems to be in line with a lot of places hopefully you will get it then but don't bank on it .

    Some places definitely have stock - CSS even have a specific section for in-stock bikes on their website.

    My LBS (360 in Clontarf) also have live stock on their site, some of which are entry level types. It's worth ringing around a few shops, I expect you'll find something to suit.

    cheapest carbon road bike is 2.3k - and the next cheapest, at 2.4k, comes with tiagra!


    the cheapest alu e-bike in stock is 2.5k, but they do seem to have a fair few e-bikes available.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,438 ✭✭✭ rolling boh


    Seems if you are flexible with what you will buy there is something out there maybe not so easy if you want a particular bike



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,499 ✭✭✭ fat bloke


    Those maths no longer seem to apply. Built bikes now seem to be greater in price than the sum of their parts.



  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 16,393 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Weepsie


    I was in the new wheelworx in Finglas. Modtly Trek bikes. Prices are eyewatering for some of the stuff, and i don't think the shop will be long there.

    they are one of only 4 (5?) official Trek dealers in the country. Basically they have to take whatever Trek give them and its usually high end stuff.

    there is so much second hand stuff online for entry level bikes I wouldn't go near a shop



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,187 ✭✭✭ DaveyDave


    The Canyon Endurace CF7 with 105 is €1,550. €50 more than when I bought mine in 2016. Doesn't come with GP5000s this time but still Conti rubber, Shimano all round, CF seat tube, Selle Italia saddle. Currently sold out, but interesting to see considering the cost of entry level bikes going up so much. The aluminium 105 is €1,250 but the Tiagra one is €1,050. I hear the new Tiagra is on par with 105 these days so would do the job? Lots of stuff out of stock but from what I've seen they're at least getting a lot of budget stuff in various sizes and not just all high end stuff.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,816 ✭✭✭ CantGetNoSleep


    I was looking at some of the Canyon's the other day and felt that there was still some good value there, particularly the rim braked models e.g. the Ultimate CF SL 8 which is 2299 and right on 7kg, or the Endurace which is half a kilo heavier but 300 cheaper - both would be great bikes if you do most of your riding in good weather particularly. Stock is not great though

    Ordered a trek domane al5 in September last year on the BTWS, still haven’t got it, latest date I was given was 27th December, can’t see that happening with Christmas.

    Ive paid back the company I work for but the voucher has expired, I contacted the company that manage the BTWS were I work and they said there is no problem extending the voucher, and it’s happened quite a bit.

    I only ordered the bike as I have a BTWS available, good job I’m not depending on the bike!

    Hollingsworth in Kilmacud have 2022 Bianchi and Cube in stock. They have a lovely Agree for just over $3k. Think it had wireless Sram on it but I can't swear to that
