Memorial Day has kicked off the summer season, and across the country folks are taking to the bike lanes. Care to join them? Check out these five men's bike deals just in time for summer riding. Check out our daily bicycle deals for more sweet rides.
- NEXT 26" Men's Power Climber Mountain Bike
Price: $88 with 97-cent s&h
Lowest By: $12
Is It Worth It?: This red, 18-speed bike is an ideal starter bike for young men. It features front and rear linear v-brakes, a cushioned seat, alloy rims, and more. And measuring 71" x 24.5" x 43" it's the right height for your average-height adult. Keep in mind that you can save on shipping costs with Site-to-Store pickup, but also note that this bike requires assembly.
- Thruster 700c Men's Fixie Bike
Price: $99.97 with 97-cent s&h
Lowest By: $107
Is It Worth It?: This bike is definitely priced to move, literally. "Fixies" — fixed-gear bicycles — are rather popular with urban riders who don't want the hassle of shifters and such. This 70" x 25" x 45" fixie features a steel fork, alloy rims, alloy side pull brakes, and more. This bike comes in Black, and while you can also save the 97-cents for shipping with Site-to-Store pickup, assembly is required.
- Schwinn Men's 26" Link Comfort Bike
Price: $149 with 97-cent s&h
Lowest By: $25
Is It Worth It?: Here's another runaway bike deal from Walmart, this one on a Schwinn men's bike in blue that features 21 speeds with SRAM Grip Shift shifters, SR Suntour suspension fork, padded saddle seat, suspension seat post, Promax alloy linear pull brakes, and more. This bike, as the name implies, is built more for leisure riding than the fixie or a mountain bike; it measures 71" x 26" x 40". And as with the above deals, you can opt for Site-to-Store pickup to save the buck for shipping.
- Roadmaster Men's Granite Peak 26" Mountain Bike
Price: $88 with 97-cent s&h
Lowest By: $54
Is It Worth It?: With this deal, Walmart shows a little cycling love to the mountain biking crowd. Though it sits at the same price point as the NEXT 26 bike listed above, this black, 18-speed bike comes in at a compact 68" x 23" x 41". It features a steel frame, front and rear linear pull brakes, Shimano rear derailleur, suspension fork, and more.
- Diamondback Men's Overdrive 29er Mountain Bike
Price: $459.93 with free in-store pickup
Lowest By: $90
Is It Worth It?: This is one instance where opting for in-store pickup will save you more than a buck — $60 in this case. This Diamondback 29er bike is painted in a fashionable blue and is available in frame sizes 16 to 22. It features 29" wheels, 6061-T6 aluminum tubing, a SR Suntour XCR-RL 29 fork, Shimano 8-speed RapidFire shifters, Tektro Novela disc brakes, and more. All REI bicycles come with a free warranty tune-up, which they recommend for between the first 100-200 miles of riding, or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly.
