1/2 price BMC Bicycles for sale

Our bicycle touring and rental company sells off our old bikes each year to make way for the new ones. We're selling all of our used BMC bikes at 1/2 of their retail price. These bikes were used one season and are ALL in near-new condition. You can find out everything about the bikes here:

http://www.bikeshopswitzerland.com/b...sale/used.html

All will have been cleaned, serviced and checked before sale. We'll make sure the tires last you at least 800km, that the brakes are in good condition and also check the chain.

Bikes will be available for pick up at our shop near the Geneva train station on October 15th. OR, we can ship to you anywhere in Switzerland for 20 chf with the train.

Best deal out there, really !

especially as the bmc alpin challenge base model is €800/973chf NEW in germany,

although the swiss new price is 1990chf

pesto - as there are 3 versions of the alpin, which version are you selling? gearset series etc?

Re: 1/2 price BMC Bicycles for sale

What the ... ? Show me where else in this forum or on Ricardo or wherever you're going to find a BMC at this price? Then try to show me where you will find 80 bikes bikes at this price..., used one season, they're fully serviced and have a 30-day guarantee. These bikes are sold in all shops in Switzerland at 1999 chf (This year) and we're selling less than 1/2 that. Specs are on the link that I posted previously. Alpen Challenge 02 Shimano-Tiagra. This is the 1999 version.

Please don't post negative comments if you know zero about the bicycle market.

Re: 1/2 price BMC Bicycles for sale

You're probably seeing the Deore version at that price. BMC pricing is relatively stable throughout Europe.

yep true,

the base model ACO1 deore Alivio with 28" wheels is €800 1100chf / 970chf

deore /slx is €1000 1500chf / 1210chf

and the sram rival version is €1700 2400chf / 2060chf but is available on many sites for €1360 / 1650chf

all 2012 models and thats a straight conversion, after claiming DE tax and paying the swiss tax it will still be cheaper than the swiss MRRP.

hey even DE MRRP is far cheaper than swiss MRRP but thats no surprise to anyone i guess.

Re: 1/2 price BMC Bicycles for sale

Those are interesting prices, but I don't see any links for any Alpen Challenge 105 ? Again, you won't find these bikes new/used or anywhere for this price. If you can, then I'll do a very deep bow in your honor.
