This time of year is perfect to go on the hunt for discount mountain bikes, as many retailers try and shift 2013 bikes to make space for brand new 2014 bikes, which are being released right about now.
We’ve had a quick scout around some online retailers and picked a few attractive looking deals for you.
German brand Canyon are selling a load of bikes through their outlet store. This Nerve CF 9.0 SL stands out as a bit of a deal, it’s reduced by £427.36 and now costs £3,161. Still a large pile of cash granted, but a lot less, and it’s a 1.9kg carbon 120mm full-susser with a SRAM XO groupset, SIS XX World Cup fork and Mavic Crossmax SLR wheels.

If owning a Yeti has also been high on your list of potential bike ownership, then check out Wheelbase’s deal on this SB66. The bike uses the Switch suspension technology they introduced just a couple of years ago and it's one smart, highly desirable machine. The frameset is going for an absolute bargan price of £1,399 - reduced from £1,999.

[part title="Specialized Camber"]
The Specialized Camber 29er has been a well-received bike this year (here’s our review) and we’ve found this excellent deal. It’s down from £1,500 to £1,200; a 20% discount. It’s an alloy frame with a RockShox XC 30 100mm fork and custom tuned Monarch shock with Specialized’s clever Autosag - inflate to 300psi, sit on the bike, press the red button, and voila you have the correct sag.

Or how about the BMC Fourstroke FS03, which is being reduced by 29%? It now costs £1,550. It’s a 29er with 100mm travel front and rear from a RockShox Recon Gold TK fork and Scor SHP200 rear shock, with a Shimano SLX groupset bolted on, including the excellent Shadow Plus rear mech.
These are just a few of the great deals we found when surfing the online retailers. There are loads more out there so it’s worth having a little browse if you’re in the market for a new bike, and want to benefit from some of the substantial savings to be had.
