Good luck finding a rigid bike these days - it isn't 1995. Also, 20% is standard discounting for the most part with different MSRPs given to different dealers depending on volume.

You want 50-55% off which is achievable on last year's stock which is the level of discount I have always been able to get on road and mountain bikes since 1995 if you know where to look.

Of course, at the bottom-ish end of the market like this, you won't see that discount but a 50% off $750 MSRP bike would be much nicer than this one.

Better yet, do some research and buy used! Bikes are heavier than ever before and imho not necessarily better for it.
I'd be interested to hear how to reach 50% off. I know now is about the time that new models come out but (except for the $823 felt doctrine 6 at CRC) I haven't seen more than 10-20%.

I'm looking for a MTB for my 12 year old who got into racing while visiting the inlaws this summer. My wish list is small frame, 27.5", air fork w aluminum stanchions, shadow+ RD, non-plus tires, ideally about $1k.

The felt doctrine would be amazing except for the fact that it's 29", has an odd setup with boost thru axle in back but QR up front, plus I'm hesitant to get carbon for a kid, not knowing how fragile that might be.

Been looking at that for a while as well. Weird configuration for sure.

It is pretty much a 20% off lots of Cannondale bikes at REI and that includes hybrid bikes. Just check the REI website and pick the bike types. Quick 6 for $503 and Quick 7 for $419. Not too shabby but not too great either.

I am looking for an entry level road bike with claris or sora drivetrain and prices are too high. I think I will wait for black friday.

This would be a great entry level bike. Forget the cheap Walmart and Target specials. A lot of bike snobs on here poo pooing entry level. You're buying into Cannondale, with their lifetime frame warranty and REI's return policy and tune up extra.

Also frame made in the USA.

With Trump's China tariffs, we should expect the prices to really jump much higher. It will be tougher to get great deals. This is a similar bike to the GT Aggressor deal at $299 but with China tariffs, we may soon not see these type of bikes in the $300-368 range anymore. Not bad bikes for some light mountain biking trails and road riding for the casual consumers.

Are you sure? I am reading manufacturing and assembling in China. Some assembling in US. I don't think anything is made is USA anymore.

This seems super cheap for a cannondale but the specs make me think it's a Luke-warm deal. Thoughts?
This is a Walmart bike with Cannondale printed on it so it costs $100 more. Those are the very lowest end products that carry the Shimano name, and the fork is of the same quality. Schwinn bikes at Walmart are up to par with this and are $100 or more less.

This is going to be fine for casual pavement riding or even on smooth gravel trails/roads. This is not a "trail" bike ready for anything aggressive. It'll survive and you'll probably make it to the end of the trail, but you're not gonna have a good time.
