The best bikes under £4000 pack an incredible punch with top end frames married with slightly more frugal kit than their superbike siblings. We review four contenders for your cash.
If you want a top performing bike, £3,000-4,000 is a sweet spot. Below the stratosphere of superbikes bought by those for whom money is no object, manufacturers know that value is still a consideration and that our expectations for frames and equipment are high.
The crucial, and very exciting, fact about this price band is that it is where the top-end frames start. This line-up includes a wind-tunnel developed Scott and a state-of-the-art Cannondale that have won races at the very highest level of professional cycling. If it’s pedigree you want, look no further.
As counterpoints, we also have two high-value alternatives from Stevens and Trigon, which aim to deliver extra spec and performance for your money in the absence of such a prestigious name on the downtube.
By making a smart choice now, you’ll be just a canny wheel upgrade away from superbike heaven when you next have some cash to spend. Now that’s a good investment.
