With Christmas and New Year out of the way, we’re deep into January sales territory, with the bike industry being firmly on board. Here’s a roundup of some seriously good 2018 sale bike deals that are too good to cycle past.
January sales bike deals
Kona Process 153 DL (2016 ex-display)
The Kona Process 153 DL gained a 4-star review from us and is now marked down by 43% Kona
This big-country slugger impressed Tom Marvin when he gave it a 4-star review back in 2016. Amazingly, Tredz still has one in stock in a size small, with a whopping 43 percent knocked off the price tag.
A confidence-inspiring descender, it would make a great investment for a shorter rider who’s looking for a good deal.
Marin Fairfax SC1
The Marin Fairfax is a great commuter option with a 38% discount Marin Bikes
If you’re looking for a new commuter bike on a budget, the Marin Fairfax is a solid option.
Rutland Cycling is currently selling it with 38 percent knocked off the retail price, and it’s a pretty good deal for a comfortable and practical hybrid that’ll get you to work time and again.
Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR
The Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR is eye-catching and an absolute steal at this price Mondraker
In our first look at the Foxy Carbon XR we hailed its redefinition of geometry. The 150mm travel enduro bike with 27.5-in wheels came longer and slacker than the Dune.
Longer and slacker is still the name of the game, so grab this beaut in a size large with a 36 percent discount, while you can.
Specialized Sequoia 700c
£1,100 from £719
The Specialized Sequoia would make a great commuter road bike for less than £1,000 Specialized
The Specialized Sequoia is a steel road bike that’s built to be comfortable and efficient, with a reasonably long wheelbase and lowered bottom bracket for stability.
It comes with mounts for all the practical essentials such as mudguards, a rack and bottle cages, and would make the perfect commuter road bike or low-key touring rig. Now with up to 35 percent off the retail price.
Trek Dual Sport+
The Trek Dual Sport+ would be a great e-commuter, and it’s currently a bargain Trek
If you want a big name e-bike for significantly less than £2,000, you’re in luck.
The Trek Dual Sport+ is the ultimate hybrid, combining city bike with adventurous off-roader, and it’s currently reduced by 35 percent.
Fast rolling 700c wheels with 38mm tyres, combined with a bit of suspension up front, should make for a comfortable e-commuter with weekend woodland capabilities. Currently available in sizes 17.5, 20 and 22.5 inches.
Vitus ZX1 Aero Disc 105
Aero — check. Disc — check. 105 — check. 40% below retail — check x
If you’re looking for a race-ready aerodynamic disc bike designed to combine comfort, lateral stiffness and a light weight, then this is a pretty great deal at 37 percent off the retail price. There are only three sizes left: 52, 54 and 56cm.
The Vitus ZX1 Aero Disc 105 is designed with Kammtail tube profiles, which are argued to have more crosswind stability while retaining aerodynamics.
