Christmas and the festive holiday break have been and gone, but January means the New Year bike sales are here and in full swing, with loads of bargains to be had. The big mountain bike retailers are offering huge January sale discounts on everything from the best mountain bikes to helmets and also off-road clothing and the best mountain bike shoes. There is something for everyone and if your Christmas mountain bike gifts didn't quite match what you had in mind, then the January sales are the time to treat yourself and get what you actually wanted, at bargain prices.

There are also plenty of deals on cycling consumables that we need all year round so rather than spending full price on items like brake pads, cleaning products, tubeless sealant, and tires when you need them, it's best to buy them now in the January sales so you're stocked and still saving.

So to make things easier for you, I've had a hunt around and compiled this New Year bike sales guide with a host of excellent mountain biking, off-road riding, and cycling goodies with some great discounts...
