BIKES For Christmas
I got a bike from Christmas. Did you get a bike for Christmas?
Diamondback has a pretty slick range of bikes. Road, mountain, fat bikes, women’s, kids – all you need. Have a look- no words needed.
Mountain Bike: Diamondback Overdrive 29 – From $520
The Diamondback Overdrive is one of the best-selling mountain bikes in this range, and it’s our favorite. Such a reasonable price will allow you to include a premium component set. Although this great bike doesn’t have special price for Christmas, it’s such a tremendous value that we must include it!
It rolls on 29” tires, which provide a smoother ride than 27.5” or 26” tires. The frame is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, which is well known for its light weight and strength.
Overdrive 29 includes mechanical disc brakes, which allow for controlled, predictable braking modulation. Also, the front suspension fork with 100mm of travel allows you to ride with confidence and ease on a wide range of terrain. With all the different mountain bikes out there, the Overdrive 29 was the first to spring to mind when we pondered our 2018 list of Christmas bargains.
To accommodate nearly every size rider, there are four frame sizes available:
- S – for riders 5’4” to 5’7” in height
- M – 5’7” to 5’10”
- L – 5’10” to 6’1”
- XL – 6’1 to 6’4”
Nashbar AL1 Sora- $499.99 – 55% Off
This Nashbar AL1 with Sora components is available at a very inexpensive price. The price is half the usual amount, which is a pretty good deal in itself! It has a lightweight aluminum frame with a carbon fork and Shimano Sora components, so it’s as good of a deal as it gets!
Road Bike For Kids – Fuji Ace 24″ – $349.97
If you aim to teach your young one to ride a road bike, then this high-value pick will be an excellent Christmas gift.
The Ace is made of Fuji A1-SL lightweight, durable hydroformed aluminum. Its wide 14-gear range comes from a 7-speed 14-34T cassette mated with 48/40T rings up front – suitable to ride almost any grade at any speed. This gearing is not what you’ll find on adult road bikes; it’s specifically designed for kids, and will allow them to have loads of fun while they prepare for full-size bikes.
Fuji Ace’s compact geometry is suitable for smaller riders of XX” to XX” in height.
With full-size road bike appearance and features, the Ace has been one of the best kids’ road bikes in this price range for a number of years.
The build on the Fuji Ace consists mainly of Fuji-brand components, which, in part, account for the bike’s incredible price. The component set performs suitably to give young riders the confidence and chops to seamlessly move into more advanced road biking in the future.
Storm Bike for 4-9 Year Olds – Diamondback Cobra 20
A great first bike for both boys and girls, this little ripper sports 20-inch tires and includes a front suspension fork. The Diamondback Cobra 20 is suitable for kids 44“ to 54“ tall, or ages 4 to 9 years.
This well-featured ride is one of the best kids bikes for Christmas – with it your junior rider will learn quickly about big-bike riding with shifters, suspension, and front/rear brakes. Give your future champ the early advantage with a bike that will make the transition to more advanced mountain bikes – and more biking fun – an easy one.

What to keep in mind when shopping for Christmas?
People are generally much more likely to make a purchase around Christmas than otherwise. That feeling is well-known to all of us – we don’t want to miss a chance to buy a product when it’s on sale. However, take a deep breath and think twice.
There are some things that you should know before you do your Christmas gifts for cyclists this year
Shop only from trusted merchants
Make sure always to analyze your merchant’s background. You will be able to find a ton of fantastic bike deals around Christmas. However, you should keep your head clear. Merchants are aware that it is much easier to get customers to buy around this festive period. Therefore, be wary of the so-called “Fakerchants” (i.e. Fake Merchants), who are scammers looking for ways to steal your money.
How to spot these?
If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably isn’t. First of all, what you should do is check the merchant’s history. Find out when and where they were established, did they have discounts last Christmas, which sites promote their deals, and so on.
Remember: All that glitters is not gold!
If, after doing this, some deals still give you a bad vibe, feel free to ask us about it!
Why did we include these merchants?
There are thousands of bike merchants out there offering Christmas deals; however, we’ve made sure to pick only the cream of the crop. These are online stores that we know and trust. If you know any other excellent bike merchants, that you think should be on this list, please let us know, and we’ll consider it.
If you click on these links, we may earn a small commission; however, this will not change the price for you in any way. It simply helps us to cover our expenses and keep the website up and running.
What discount % should I look for?
/A decent product without a discount % can also be a good deal!
We want to say that it does not really matter. If you’re planning to buy a bike that initially cost $1000, saving even 5% on the purchase is a decent amount of money. With these $50, you can buy a new speedometer or a new jersey that were $100 and are now 50% discounted. Because of that, you should look at the deals as a whole, rather than just looking at the discounts.
Moreover, if you see a deal that offers a more than 50% discount, you should be careful since it might be a scam. However, sometimes it’s normal to put a significant discount on a product when it hasn’t been selling well for a long time. But better to be safe than sorry.
How can merchants offer enormous price discounts on Christmas?
I am not a merchant; but, some of my partners are, so I can give you some first-hand information. For example, if a pair of cycling glasses have a regular price of $100 and they sell for $60 around Christmas, where’s the profit for the merchant? I can’t give you the exact numbers, but you’ll get how it works after the next paragraph.
Merchants usually add around 40-50% of value to their wholesale prices. This percentage covers all of their expenses (warehouse, marketing, personal expenses, salaries, etc.). Around Christmas, there are more purchases without any additional costs, which enables shops to offer discounted prices. They will earn a lot more from the extra revenue during this festive period, so they can lower the prices.
Around Christmas, cycling and bike-related merchants can significantly lower their prices since they know they will sell a lot more products on these days. Therefore, it’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
What if I see scam offers?
If you see anything that looks like a scam offer around Christmas, make sure to stay away from it. If it’s possible, you should try to report them to protect other people from being scammed. We’ve already reported a lot of fake deals that we’ve found on Facebook. Some of them were advertising 92% discounts on well-known brands, which is highly unlikely to be true!
If you see a scammer advertising a well-known brand, write to that brand. They cannot do much, but at least they can issue a statement and warn their customers against making purchases.
Never share your credit card details with untrusted merchants. NEVER!
Websites like Bicycle Guider will never ask for your credit card details. Make sure never to share your personal details and credit card numbers unless you are 100% sure you’re dealing with a genuine merchant. When people are looking for Christmas offers, they are more likely to make rash decisions and share their personal info because they don’t want to risk losing a good deal. However, take a step back and clear your head before clicking the ‘Purchase’ button.
