Hunting down the best bike deals can be a long and laborious internet-trawling grind. New deals appear all the time and the availability of the most common sizes is often limited, meaning if you don’t act fast, you can often miss the best deals.
Luckily for you, the Cyclingnews team have been hunting down bike deals so you don’t have to, so avoid the hassle by checking out our roundup of bargains below.
And don’t worry if you’re not looking for bikes because our guide to the best cycling deals has a break down of all types of two-wheeled bargains including mountain bikes, gravel bikes, electric bikes and more.
In a typical year, heading to the internet in search of bike deals would probably be a straight forward task. The sheer abundance of bicycle manufacturers and the increasing rate at which they innovate means that there is generally an abundance of unsold bikes in the world. As a result, when supply outstrips demand, bike deals become almost hard to miss. However, 2020 was far from a typical year.
If there’s been one good thing to come as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that millions of people have started cycling, be that for exercise or for transport. However, the coinciding closure of factories meant that while demand increased, supply ceased. The subsequent scarcity of stock is still a long way from recovery and those once-abundant bike deals are becoming ever rarer. However, here at Cyclingnews, we’re not just experts on bike racing, we know a thing or two about shrewd shopping, so read on to peruse what we’ve found today.
To help you browse, we have broken down our bike deals by type: road, gravel, commuter, electric, mountain bikes and kids’ bikes, and within each section we’ve split out US and UK deals, then organised by price.
Road bikes come with dropped handlebars and skinny tyres. They are designed to go fast, cover long distances, climb mountains and then descend at up to 100kph. Not every bike will do all of those things perfectly, which is why there are various niches such as lightweight bikes, endurance bikes, aero bikes and more.
If you’re looking for advice on each, our best road bikes buyers guide is the place to start.
