Looking for a high-performance budget mountain bike but don’t know where to start? We wanted to give you guys a solid starting point for your next purchase. Before we get too far yes, there are cheaper bikes available, but these are bikes we feel blend race-ready performance with competitive pricing.
For the last few years we’ve been caught up in the hustle of wanting to review the latest, greatest bikes, no matter the cost. We’d never be able to afford these bikes on our own, so why not use our position to get to ride them for free right? It’s been a dream riding bikes of this caliber.
With the foundation of our small new business however, we’ve realized that the only thing larger than our love for bikes is the pile of cobwebs in the bottom of our wallets. After this realization sunk in, we wondered if we left the bike business and somehow found ourselves even more broke, what kind of bike would we be riding to feed our habit? The Bitchin Budget Bike Roundup was born.
Whether you’re new to the sport and hesitant about dropping nearly five figures on a bicycle or if you’re a blue collar, working class rider with bills to pay and a family to feed, this one’s for you!
Over the next several weeks we’ll be sharing reviews of the following bikes in hopes of highlighting just how many awesome bikes are out there under the $4,500 price point. Based on our time on the trail so far, this is going to be a really fun test and we look forward to sharing some killer deals with you all!
Please comment below with any other brands/bike models that you’d like to see added to our list. Hopefully some missing brands will take note and send us a tester to throw in the mix.
