New model bargains for 2019.

Riding is an expensive hobby (or way of life). Between insurance, licenses, gear, and all, the bill goes up, up, and away. Thankfully, when it comes to choosing a bike, there’s enough variety out there not to have to take up a mortgage to afford the two-wheel lifestyle.

I decided to have a look at all the cool stuff coming in 2019 and dig out the best of the most affordable models you can get for less than 5k. I had to choose only five, so obviously, some have been left out, while others have yet to be priced for 2019, which haven't been included. Here are five brand-new 2019 bikes you can grab for less than $5,000. Which one's your favorite?
