Blogging about the best of the bargain bikes

About the Bike Sale Blog

Welcome to the Bike Sale Blog!

Bike sales are everywhere! Winter bike sales of undersold Christmas cycles, spring bike sales of high production cycles, summer and autumn bike sales of current year surplus stock before next years model is released…

As keen cyclists with an enthusiasm for bike riding and bike shopping we’ve become obsessed with some of the fantastic bike sales and the bargain cycles available from the on-line cycles stores. Saving hundreds of pounds is possible with bikes on sale because they’re last years model, bikes on sale because they’re an unpopular colour, bikes on sale because they’re an unusual size….

Trouble is that it’s a time consuming task.  Some of the bike sales aren’t what they seem and it’s difficult to know whether you’re getting a true bargain on an excellent bike at a bargain price, or an average bike at a realistic price.  For every deal on a bike you’re having to compare the price across other sellers, read all the reviews and blogs about the bike, and finally, when you’re absolutely sold on your new dream machine. you discover it’s only available in a 64 cm frame….

We thought, seeing as we were doing this anyway, we’d share.

The bikes we’re looking for are those that would normally cost between £1000 and £1500 but can be picked up for between £500 and £1000 if captured in a really good bike sale. These are the kinds of bikes that will inspire love and affection.  They will turn a turgid daily commute into a joy-filled thrill ride and open up 100 milers for the road cyclist or mountain ascents and descents for the mountain bikers.  The difference between a £200 supermarket bike and a £1200 dream machine is like the difference between a Lada Riva and a Honda Integra Type R.  If you can get that £1200 cycle for £799 in a decent bike sale then you’re laughing!  You never get 40% discounts on new cars, but you can get them on new bikes.

We’re only going to blog about the best, and we’ll try to help you scan them easily for reviews and ratings, available sizes etc. We’d love you to comment on the posts with your own reviews of the bikes or the sellers and any fantastic deals you’re aware of.  Lets help each other find some fantastic bike sale bargains!
