With the scorching summer of 2018 done and dusted (yes, we really did have dusty trails in Wales, for once!) it’s time for our annual ex-hire bike sale. We have dozens of quality, ex-hire bikes available in our annual end-of-season sale. All our bikes are cleaned and maintained by professional mechanics throughout their time at Drover Cycles. Of course you should expect a few cosmetic scuffs and scratches – these are pre-loved bikes – but rest assured that any worn components are replaced before sale. We’ll even throw in a first free service so you can pop in for a tune-up within six weeks of buying your nearly-new steed.
So, don’t delay, get in touch to bag yourself a quality ex-hire bike.

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.
