    When do 2013 models come out?

    I know we are only 1/4 of the way through 2012, but I was wondering if anyone could let me know roughly when the 2013 models will be coming out, or what month the next years models normally come out?

    It's coming into Winter where I am so I am thinking that I may as well wait and get a 2013 model as I won't be riding all the match through Winter, but if they don't come out till right at the end of 2012 I may not be able to wait that long.

    Usually around September or October. Many manufacturers reveal their next-year models at the Interbike trade show, which is in mid-Sept. A few weeks after you can usually buy at least some of the new models.

    Trek doesnt participate in Interbike... they do TrekWorld in early August and announce all new models there. There is some suspicion than a new high-end Madone and Roubaix-type competitor will come out a few months sooner. Usually there are a few other models that come out sooner if their previous year models sell out early in the year.

    It is interesting to me how "last years" model bikes sell for hundreds less, sometimes more. I actually am considering a previous model year bike because the savings are so great and it appears that sometimes the change in a specific model is color choice!

    more and more manufacturers are introducing new product at Sea Otter every year. SRAM did this last year, and i know one bike manufacturer in particular (not talking about TREK)that will introduce a couple of new models there this year. it's getting to be like cars, new year models are released throughout the year. at some point we'll have to skip a model year...
    i work for some bike racers...

    Trek already released one new bike... not sure if they're calling it a 2013, though. Came out yesterday... just in time for Tour of Flanders.

    They released said bike today, actually. Very exciting to see a new bike like this come out. Extremely interesting technologies in the frame. It's called the Domane (doe-mahn-aye; not doe-main).

    It really depends on what bike you're ordering. Our local shop was stocking some 2012 bikes before the end of summer. Rumor is a new Madone will be released at TdF... which means it will probably be available to order in July and ship in July/August.

    Unless you want to spend BIG BUCKS for the cutting edge (which often isn't much of an advance), you are likly to be just as happy and a lot wealthier RIDING this Summer on this year's bike or last year's. The technology "trickle down" effect happens very slowly and often it's just marketing hype.

    Saw a Damone equipped with Ultegra during the first week of May. Very nice. I figure next year's 5.x Damone will be this year's 6.x, meaning it's worth the wait to save some money.

    In my opinion the paint jobs aren't as nice but there will no longer be an 8.5 or 8.4 but they will be doing an 8.1 as far as I can tell. Prices increased. The 7.4 FX and the new skye were released today.
