Just Riding Along… Deal of the Year…

If you have ever read this blog, you know that I like a good deal. There are quite a few companies and products that really strike my fancy, but some of the best deals that I have seen comes from Airborne Bicycles. I have written about their bikes before, like here and here, and once again they are dropping the deals.

From their website today, they unleashed what I am calling “the deal of the year” when it comes to buying a new bike, all in the name of Interbike. Four of their models are now at amazingly low prices, with included shipping. With that said, lets take a look:


Sabre 26″ hardtail, $249.99
Airborne’s entry level hardtail. 21 speed drivetrain, Tektro mechanical disc brakes. This price makes me want to buy one of these for my wife.


Skyhawk 26″ hardtail, $349.99
The Skyhawk is a step up from the Sabre, offering better components and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes. The geometry is also more in line with their higher end, very successful Goblin 29er.


Wingman dirt jumper, $549.99
The Wingman has earned rave reviews from various mountain bike publications, making it one of the best bang for your buck dirt jumpers.


Delta cyclocross, $749.99
The price on this bike shocked me. I have been bike lusting for this one for some time, now it is almost impossible to pass up this offer. SRAM drivetrain, Avid mechanical disc brake cyclocross machine? Yes please. Now it’s time to convince the wife…

If any of these bikes make you as happy as I am, you need to head over to their site here soon, as this offer ends at the end of Interbike, which is the 23rd of this month.

Amazing, simply amazing.

Just keep spinning…

Airborne Bicycles…

Not too long ago, I stumbled upon Airborne Bicycles. They are a relatively new bicycle company based out of nearby Dayton Ohio, that is pumping out quality bicycles at very reasonable prices. How they do it, I am not sure, but for certain I am seriously considering adding one to my current stable. Here are a few that strike my fancy:

Goblin 29er

This bicycle makes me happy. Big wheels from WTB. Front suspension in the form of a Rockshox Reba. Components from SRAM in the 2×10 variety. Elixir hydraulic disc brakes. All together for just $1149.95! That is pretty amazing. I love 29ers, having owned a couple different versions, and their MSRP was definitely higher. Great price on a great bike, which many different magazines are giving great reviews!

Zeppelin Elite

This is another bike that really intrigues me. I have been intrigued by a dual suspension for quite some time, but their prices have always been too steep for me. Plus, after my last MTB being a rigid steel single speed, that really made me start thinking about a dually. Anyway, parts: Rockshox front and rear suspension, SRAM X7 and X9 drive train and Tektro hydraulic discs. Nice parts, all for $699.95! This is the best deal of the bunch in my opinion. Try to find an equally spec’d dual suspension mountain bike for a similar price. I don’t think it can be done. Bravo Airborne!

Delta cyclocross

Another great bike of a different variety. A well equipped disc only cyclocross bike. Their site says limited quantity, and after seeing this one I can see why. Great looking bike, makes me want to start ‘cross racing. Great package at $999.95!

One thing that might be a deal breaker for some with this company is that they are mostly mail order. Myself, I do not find this to be an issue. I still support my local bike shop by buying the majority of my parts and having things fixed there as well. This type of bicycle sales is great for the consumer, giving us lots of options, which in this case are very affordable. These low prices with a little bit of maintenance knowledge will make for a very enjoyable ride.

These three are just half of the Airborne line up, just the ones that I really, really enjoy. Hopefully this brand sticks around for a while, and from the looks of the reviews, I would imagine so. It is nice to see a somewhat local company do well in the cycling business. Rock on Airborne…
