by 12

Welcome to the first ever edition of Cheap Things Tuesday! Every week we’ll be trawling through the best online cycling retailers to see what good stuff they’re selling at decent discounts.

‘See Deal’ links

There are button links below each item summary with ‘See Deal at…’ written on them. These buttons – and the header links and linked pics – click-through to retailers. Should you end up buying from these retailers then Singletrack may earn a small bit of commission. This does not alter the amount you pay by the way.

While you’re here…

Orange Switch 6er. Stif Squatcher. Schwalbe Magic Mary Purple Addix front. Maxxis DHR II 3C MaxxTerra rear. Coil fan. Ebikes are not evil. I have been a writer for nigh on 20 years, a photographer for 25 years and a mountain biker for 30 years. I have written countless magazine and website features and route guides for the UK mountain bike press, most notably for the esteemed and highly regarded Singletrackworld. Although I am a Lancastrian, I freely admit that West Yorkshire is my favourite place to ride. Rarely a week goes by without me riding and exploring the South Pennines.

    Excellent idea!

    Been using that Limotec post for about 6months with no issues, the outer cable it comes with is far too short for anything other than an XS frame & the lever is obviously cheap but the performance of the dropper has been fine.

    Regarding that deal for 100% Brisker gloves from ProBikeKit, is ProBikeKit a legit company?? No address and contact details on their website,.. looks quite suspicious! seems a bogus company!?

    Full Member

    ProBikeKit have been trading for a long time.

    Bought a lot of stuff from probikekit over the last year.
    No problems at all.

    Just be aware if you send clothing back you due to wrong size or just unwanted, you’ll have to pay delivery to send back.

    Been using NX Eagle 12sp on a couple of bikes, it’s been decent. Cassette is heavy but works on a Shimano freehub rather than XD. You need to buy a dub BB in the right flavour for your frame too.
