Education First are selling their old Cannondale race bikes on the cheap

Plenty of race and training bikes from the past two seasons are up for grabs

Education First are selling their old Cannondale team bikes and there is a chance you could pick up one hell of a bargain. The American WorldTour team have put up a range of their 2018 and 2019 team bikes on their website, selling a range of SuperSix aero bikes, SystemSix climbing bikes and Synapse Carbon endurance models.

Some of the bikes on offer were raced on by the likes of Sebastian Langeveld and Taylor Phinney while others were used solely for training. All will have been maintained by a professional WorldTour mechanic.

There is also a range of paint jobs with some coming from the former green argyle era with others are in the updated Rapha tye-dye colourway.

Prices for the bikes start at €2,178 for a SuperSix Evo training bike.

The old generation of Cannondale's SuperSix Evo range, with its tradition geometry and tube shape, comes with full Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, Vision aluminium clincher wheels and FSA finishing kit.

For €3,267, you can have the same bike just raced on instead of used for training.

For an extra €600, you can also pick up a race-ridden 2019 rim brake SuperSix Evo with full Dura-Ace Di2 for €3,872, a bike that would retail new for over £6,000.

Alternatively, you can pick up a race-ridden SystemSix aero bike with full Dura-Ace Di2, disc brakes, Vision Aluminium wheels in the tye-dye 2019 colourway for €4,416.50. However sizes are limited to 51cm and 58cm frames.

Education First does warn that wear on the bikes may vary, considering they have all been raced and trained on by professionals, and that componentry could vary from what is stated. It is also a case of first-come-first-served, with stock being limited to what the team have left.

This is the latest in a long line of professional bike teams selling off their old team bikes for a little bit of cash.

At the back end of 2019, Lotto Soudal sold off a collection of their Ridley bikes as raced by the likes of Caleb Ewan, Thomas De Gendt and Adam Hansen. 

Back in 2018, Aqua Blue Sport also sold off their old Ridley bikes, fitted with Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets and carbon Enve wheelsets, at a hugely reduced cost.
