Like unicycles with notions, bikes are good for the environment, for your fitness, and thanks to the five best biking deals, for your wallet. This selection includes sales from The House and Backcountry, as well as carbon bikes at Walmart, and a single-speed Schwinn at Dick's Sporting Goods.
Store: The House
Discount: Up to 60% off
Shipping: Free shipping
The great Tom Waits perhaps said it best – for great deals on bikes, you've got to come on up to The House. My brief Waits-inspired reverie was unforgivably interrupted by The House's chat-bot pop-up making a noise, so you should know that I'm very angry at them even as I mention their discounts on brands like Fuji, GT, and Framed.
Bikes & Frames Sale
Discount: Up to 86% off
Shipping: $8.95 s&h, or free shipping w/ $50
You can save up to 40% on the bikes themselves, but some of the best discounts come when you're looking for frames, gears, and accessories. There, you'll find items marked up to 86% off, with men's T-shirts starting from $14.96, sunglasses from $29.99, and backpacks from $40.95.
Viathon Carbon Bikes
Expiration: May 27
These carbon fiber bikes are a bit more pricey than the Hyper model above, but if you're of the mind to make a significant investment, you can at least know that these models are hundreds, if not thousands, off their list price. There are six bikes discounted, ranging from $1,599 to $4,199. It does bear saying, though, that "Viathon" sounds like the result of a TV production company merger from the early 2000s.
Hyper Men's 26" Carbon Fiber Mountain Bike
Lowest By: $351
Expiration: May 28
Carbon fiber frames are popular due to three main aspects: their lightness, their durability, and the fact that "carbon fiber" is pronounced the same all over the world, as opposed to the aluminum/aluminium controversy. This Hyper cabon fiber bike also has a $351 discount working in its favor. It features front and rear disc brakes, 26 x 2.30 MTB tires, 21 speeds, Snafu MTB saddle, and a 275-lb. max capacity.
Schwinn Signature Men's Heavy Duti 26" Cruiser Bike
Store: Dick's Sporting Goods
Lowest By: $55
Expiration: June 17
I'm very irritated by the deliberate misspelling in this bike's name, to the point where I almost didn't want to include it in this roundup. But it's my duti to bring you the best deals, and so that's what I'll do(ti). This single-speed Schwinn bike comes in $55 less than the next best price, and features an 18" frame, 26" wheel size, and coaster brakes.
