Avocet Sports Limited has announced that on current ranges of bicycles there will be no increase in recommended retail prices, resulting in a two per cent reduction in Net invoice prices to dealers, in turn helping maintain dealer profit margins on the current ranges.

Avocet has also told BikeBiz that there will also be some clearance prices on 2010 models, available from 4th January 2010.
