It’s that time of year again and we are selling off the bikes from our hire fleet. All of the bikes have been used throughout the season and so have some cosmetic defects, such as minor scuffs and scratches. 2012 hasn’t been the finest in terms of weather so usage has been below average this year – several bikes have had ten outings or less, making them nearly new. The bikes are also, of course, expertly and diligently maintained throughout their life as they are treated to a service after every ride!

We are offering the Commencal HD4s (our ‘standard’ mountain bikes which cost £550 new) for £295 with a choice of new Maxxis Crossmark tyres (as pictured) or the highly puncture resistant Schwalbe Marathon Plus MTB tyres that we retro-fitted to the fleet. The bikes have also been fitted with Gore sealed cable systems and WTB lock-on grips. We can include the Cateye wireless computer, Blackburn pump, Topeak seat pack (with contents – inner tube and tyre levers) and Blackburn bottle cage that we fit to the fleet for an extra £30. The HD4 is available in 14/16/18/20 inch frame sizes.

We are selling the Genesis Latitude MTBs (our high spec offering which cost £849 new) for £595. They are kitted out with Continental Mountain King tyres (folding bead) on the front and Continental X-King tyres (folding bead) on the rear which is in itself an upgrade worth £90! As with the Commencals we can offer the computer/pump/pack/cage package for £30, and we can throw in the Crud Catcher front mudguard for a further £10. The Latitude is available in 16/17.5/19/20.5 inch frame sizes.

Both models are moving fast so be sure to get in touch to bag yourself a quality ex-hire bike. Don’t miss out on a bargain!
