The price of a new pair of bikes is always going to be a sensitive topic, and when it comes to the most affordable bikes, the best way to look for bargains is by looking at the components themselves.
That’s exactly what we’ve done here at TechRadar, where we’ve put together a list of the best cheap bikes for the money and then gone through the specs to see which ones are the best for what you need.
We’ve also taken a look at the price-performance comparison for the most expensive bikes, and we’ll have a full breakdown of all the best budget bikes available for a few more weeks.
Here, we’ll be looking at how to find the cheapest and best bikes for your money.
We know that some of you are looking to buy the best bikes at the best prices, so here’s a list that we hope you’ll enjoy, even if it’s not the best price you can find today.
The main selling points of each bike are the same: low-cost parts and materials, high-end frame and suspension, and an excellent ride quality.
