Saracen Mantra Pro ex-hire bikes
It’s once again time to renew our fleet of hire bikes and the 2019 fleet is now for sale.
As always we’ve taken great care in looking after these bikes and have ensured they are professionally maintained all season. They are cleaned and serviced after every hire and parts replaced as and when required.
As usual we have made several upgrades and replaced many parts before sale. In particular the wheels and tyres were removed when the bikes came out of the boxes in March/April and have been stored in dry conditions, unused. These have now been re-fitted to the bikes before sale so you will receive a bike with brand new, never used wheels and tyres.
This year we’ve replaced the basic headsets supplied with high-quality sealed cartridge bearing units which we find to be a significant improvement.
In addition as each bike has serviced, brake pads, chains, cables, etc have been replaced as required, generally with better spec components than the originals.
The bikes are in excellent mechanical condition and generally very good cosmetic shape too. Take a look at the pictures which show the general condition you can expect. There are some scuffs/scrapes/chips, but no major damage and of course nothing structural. In many cases you’d have to look closely to know the bikes weren’t new.
Please note that we also have the equivalent women’s model available – the women’s bike in this spec is exclusive to us!
Please take a look at our feedback to see what customers buying other ex-hire bikes have said.
Original RRP for these is £699 before upgrades. We are offering the complete package for only £425 – a saving of almost £300 on the RRP! We will deliver within the UK for free by Parcelforce 48.
