2017 Ex Hire Bikes

With the 2017 season done and dusted (?mudded) it’s time for our annual ex-hire bike sale!  This year we’ve got a bigger range and quantity than ever before, including a big chunk of bikes which are really as new having only been used for one event in autumn 2017.  The majority of our bikes have been used throughout one season and so have some cosmetic defects, such as minor scuffs and scratches.  All Drover Cycles hire bikes are maintained throughout their lifetime with us and treated to a service after every ride! You are also welcome to bring your bike in for a free tune-up within 4-6 weeks of purchase!

Be sure to get in touch to bag yourself a quality ex-hire bike. Don’t miss out on a bargain!

Sport MTB

Bikes in this category are designed for forestry tracks, dirt roads, towpaths and the like. So if you are looking for a mountain bike for non-technical off-road riding, the Tufftrax is a great choice. The hydraulic disc brakes are powerful, reliable and low maintenance and a suspension fork means it’ll be more comfortable on bumpier terrain. Of course there’s nothing to stop you riding this MTB on the road and, thanks to not-too-knobbly tyres, you won’t find the ride sluggish. This is a good entry-level bike if you are just getting in to mountain biking and the smaller sizes make an excellent first adult bike for teenagers. Available with 27.5″ wheels in frame sizes 13″, 15″ and 17″ or with 29″ wheels in frame sizes 19″ and 21″.

Hardtail MTBs

Mountain bikes from UK brand Saracen have been the mainstay of our hire fleet for several years now. The Mantra Pro is a trail-ready machine designed with UK conditions in mind, featuring Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and quality components throughout. After just a season’s use these bikes are in excellent condition. What’s more we use a different wheelset and tyre on these bikes throughout the season and then refit the original wheels including new and unused tyres, tube and rotors. Available in 15″, 17″, 19″ and 21″ frame sizes.

If you fancy a bigger wheel size, we also have a batch of Charge Cooker 29ers from the 2015 range. These are lovely, classic looking bikes to ride and perfect for an epic day out in the hills. They’ll eat up natural trails and offer a smooth-rolling ride on any tarmac sections in between! Wheel upgrades are available on these bikes so please let us know if you have something specific in mind. Available in S, M, L and XL sizes.

Full Suspension MTBs

If you’re hitting the trails in a serious way and want to push yourself to the limits on technical terrain, a full-sus bike is the way forward. The Merida One-Twenty XT, although really reasonably priced, offers the performance of some much pricier competition. With 120mm front and rear travel and a slack head angle, this bike puts you in control and is superbly stable even on steep sections. A lightweight frame means you can climb with relative ease and we’ve already done the tubeless conversion for you so no need to worry about flats on your ride! Available in M and L frame sizes.

Hybrid Bikes

A hybrid, or leisure bike, combines elements of an MTB and a road bike. Big wheels, front suspension and an upright riding position ensure comfort while hydraulic disc brakes and low gears open up opportunities to tackle steeper and / or off-road rides. The Merida Crossway 100D is equally at home on the commute as it is on gravel tracks and towpaths. It makes a great choice for family and leisure cycling, and can be kitted out with mudguards for all-weather rides, or racks for longer distance load-carrying. These bikes are comfortable, reliable and practical but nippy enough to make road riding fun too! We have standard and step-through models available. Available in frame sizes 42cm, 46cm, 52cm and 58cm.

Road Bikes

If tarmac is your playground, be it for commuting, sportives or Sunday club rides, you’ll be looking for a lightweight road bike. Featuring drop bars, integrated brake/gear shifters and a feature-packed aluminium frame with a full-carbon fork, the Merida Ride 400 makes a great first bike for roadies. With a 105 groupset this is more than an entry-level road bike but for under £1000 it already offers great value. Our ex-hire fleet has been very lightly used and you’ll get brand new wheels and tyres for good measure. Available in frame sizes 47cm, 50cm, 52cm, 54cm,
56cm, 59cm.
