Batch Bicycles – Affordable Quality

Given the choice, I’d opt out of shopping this season, as people seem to forget what the holidays are about. In the past, I’ve offered links to specials, as they do help cover the cost of running this site. But if I could, I’d skip that too. Then I learned about Batch Bicycles. You buy one, and go outside and play. Teach your kid to ride. Use a bike to get to work or school. Or just ride for the sheer joy of it. Bicycles are my favorite piece of outdoor gear (other than a camera). So I’m going to share.

About Batch Bicycles

Batch Bicycles has something for everyone on Santa’s list, with affordable prices ranging from $89.99 to $489.99. These are not high-end bicycles, but they are not X-Mart bikes either. Assembled by trained bicycle mechanics, they actually work. Unlike the bottom of the barrel brands, your local bike shop will be more than happy to service them. Fact: many shops refuse to work on the inexpensive mass-market bikes. Why? Because the drivetrain, brakes, and suspension cannot be made to function properly. This is due to their low-quality components. Somewhere between those bikes, and the ones pushing $600 or more, is Batch Bicycles. They offer the following:

    • Kids bikes
    • Comfort bikes
    • Commuters
    • Cruisers
    • MTBs
