A New Cyclocross Bike Can Help You Beat Any Cycling Record

By , dealnews contributor

Let's forget all the controversy surrounding the world of cycling, and focus on the purity of the sport; cruising along on a bike can be an exceptionally healthy, relaxing, and enjoyable activity, and luckily we've got great bike deals to make that possible, including the best price we've seen on a Mongoose 26" men's mountain bike. Looking for more pedal power? Be sure to check out our daily bicycle deals.

  1. Mongoose 26" Ledge 2.1 Men's Mountain Bike
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $119 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $54

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice deal comes cruising in at $16 under our mention from a week ago. It's a solid pick for anyone who wants a mountain bike, but doesn't need a tricked-out ride for extra punishing conditions. It features an aluminum suspension frame, suspension fork, linear pull brakes, and 21-speed Shimano gearing.

  2. Nashbar Power Buys Sale

    Shipping: From $5.99 s&h

    Is It Worth It?: Can you feel the power of this Power Buys Sale? This event ranks among the strongest sales we've seen from Nashbar, beating out our mention from last week. This week, we've got our eye on the K2 Huntington Bike (pictured) for $224.99 with $38 s&h. It features an aluminum alloy frame, high tensile steel fork, 21-speed Shimano Revo shifters, and more. We also like the Nashbar CX1 Cyclocross Bike for $599.99 with $39 s&h. Be sure to check out all the Nashbar bikes on sale.

  3. Schwinn Men's 26" Delmar Cruiser Bike
    Store: Walmart
    Price: $129.97 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $42

    Is It Worth It?: Cruising is the name of the game with this sleek bike, and the $42 savings will coast right along with you. It features a steel frame with bottle-opener tank, alloy rims, and more. Bikes like this are best suited for light city riding, running errands, and traveling well-groomed bike trails.

  4. Stowabike Men's 26" Folding Dual Suspension Mountain Bike
    Store: Golf Outlets of America via Amazon
    Price: $199.99 with free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: Like smartphone apps, robot vacuums, and escalators, folding bikes rank as one of those cool things that just make life more convenient. And here comes a bike deal, at $400 off, that puts more bills in your billfold; it also ties our February mention as the lowest total price we've seen. This 18-speed bike features a foldable steel frame, Shimano rear derailleur, suspension fork, and more.

  5. InStep Quick N' EZ Double Bicycle Trailer
    Store: Amazon
    Price: $89.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $26

    Is It Worth It?: Let's face it: You may love carrying your kiddo on your shoulders, but that's not going to work riding a bike. Consider this 33-lb. collapsible stroller a much safer and smarter option. It supports two children (up to 100 lbs. total weight) and features an attachment for most adult bicycles, 16" quick-release wheels, canopy, and more.

Hi there hairylunch (what a name!), we did in fact list a Cyclocross bike. It's part of the Nashbar sale.
The headline is very misleading, as cyclocross refers to a specific type of bike (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclo-cross_bicycle), and tehre are no cyclocross bikes in the listed deals . . . it's like having a heading of "New running shoes to help you get fit" and then having a page listing flip flops
