    Black Friday is the time to go biking, because everyone else is in line at Best Buy.

    Black Friday is also known as "Buy Nothing Day".

    Yeah, Performance might have a sale, but not worth goiing to IMO. Usually the online shops might have a sale or something. Sorry, but I gotta agree with:

    Agree with "Buy Nothing Day". I've never tried shopping on Black Friday, but I have seen the traffic at 6 am on the highway of people exiting for the shopping malls. Does not look like fun. If you have something specific, such as an exact TV you want then go for it. Otherwise skip it and head for the hills.

    Dude is coming from halfway around the world and he's just asking a simple question.
    I don't know, maybe save the lectures on consumerism for another time?

    spr,

    The best time to look for bike sales is when shops are trying to get rid of last year's models to make room for next years. This is basically anytime between now and whenever the 2011 bikes start coming in (could be into November, each model/brand has their own timeline). Have fun in California and I hope you find a good deal.

    Figure a way to get a bike to do the appetite seminar in Marin on TK's morning. You'll enjoy it a whole lot more than waiting in line at 2am for a TV.

    If you are talking about high end brand name mountain bikes, I really doubt it -- all these years, I've never heard of any "Black Friday Sale" on those mountain bikes in any local bike shops (not that I was actively checking). However, if you will happen to be in the vicinity of a Performance Bikes store, I think they almost always do 20% off on that day. My 2 cents.
    Inch by inch, I will get there...

    Yet the lines at Best Buy and Wally World are full of such interesting people?
    *Trippy, someone deleted my post that was #2 above? The one that said " s p a m ?"

    Hmmm...

    It seems that Yuba cycle shop in Downieville always has primo bikes (like Ibis, Santa Cruz, etc.) at a discount (slightly used demo or rental bikes). That's a 4 hour drive from the bay area, and probably they will be snowed in by Thanksgiving, but as far as deals on mtn bikes, they are hard to beat.

    FWIW most rental places blow out their stuff before August..that said I hear Summit might have some left.

    I'd be more inclined to hit up the S.F. Bike Expo at the Cow Palace, better overall experience..

    *Does Lars' shop, Trailhead still hold a Spooky Swapmeet in late October?
