The best bikes are going to cost the least money, according to the latest figures from the UK Cycling Foundation.
But the cost of bikes that are cheaper than the cheapest bike is dropping.
In the past few years, a range of models have become cheaper than most bikes, including a range made by the British manufacturer Alpenglow.
The cheapest bikes on sale now are bikes by Shimano, a company with a reputation for making top-of-the-range bikes.
But this year Shimano has dropped its price on the Shimano Ultegra 9800, a more affordable model, and dropped its prices on the latest version of its SRAM X1, which is the highest-priced of the new generation of its compact disc wheels.
“A bike with Shimano’s Ultegra 9800 is going to be about £30 less than a bike that comes from Shimano,” said Richard Hogg, director of communications for the foundation.
The foundation also released the latest price guide from UK cycling data company ProCycle, which showed the best-selling bikes in the UK in December at £18,700.
But that was before a surge in new bikes, which now cost £15,000 or more.
The new models have a wide range of gears and gearing options, and include more than a dozen types of brakes, including hydraulic, electric, and rotary.
“It’s a very different world in terms of bikes, and a very good world in general,” said Hogg.
“But in terms to what’s available on the market, we have a very limited selection, so what we do is look at the best price and compare that to what you’re going to pay for it.”
For now, bikes from Shimaro and Alphenglow are still the cheapest options, with prices falling steadily.
The price of the latest model is now £19,900.
“I don’t think you can go wrong with a Shimano Shimano X1,” said Chris Jones, an experienced rider who bought his first bike when it was still made by Alpanglow in 2011.
“There’s some really good bikes on offer that are £10,000 and they’re really good.
You can go from that to £18 or £19 and there’s really nothing that beats the best Shimano.”
But while a new model is cheaper than a regular bike, the latest bikes also offer an increased capacity for more gear.
“In the last couple of years there’s been an increase in the number of gears that you can get out of a bike,” said Jones.
“You can now get more out of that Shimano with an X1 than you can out of the same bike with a regular crank,” he added.
Shimano and Alpacenglow are both making the new versions of their bikes, so there’s no way to know whether this has made the difference to the cost.
“We’re still at the same price point as last year, but there are some very good bikes out there now that are going for a little bit more than what we’re currently offering,” said Andrew Smith, a member of the foundation’s advisory board.
