Hundreds of kids mountain bikes and a selection of adult gravel bikes are currently available to view and bid upon online as part of an ongoing series of auctions of liquidated stock from the former UK distributor Moore Large.

The bikes are being sold at a fraction of their RRP, with many discounts currently around 80 percent (all dependent on the final bids of course). You can check out the full listings on the John Pye Auctions website.

Many of the kids bikes on offer are from Forme, a brand that has made some excellent adult trail bikes in the past. There's lots of 26-inch wheeled bikes up for grabs, such as the rigid frame and forked Forme Kinder (RRP £430, current bidding from £85) and Bamford Junior (RRP £385, current bidding from £42), as well as many 24 and 20-inch bikes for younger riders. Other bike brands in the fire sale include Cuda and Barracuda, though we've no experience of riding any of their bikes on the Bike Perfect team.
