Cheap Things Tuesday: helmets, hammers, grips and stuff

by 17

Come on in to the second edition of Cheap Things Tuesday! Once again we’ve been sifting through the sea of chaff to bring you the wheat.. er, AKA the best bike stuff on offer at decent discounts.

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.

    Twenty five quid for a hammer. I know that precision tools can be expensive, and nice tools are nice, but come on, it’s a hammer.

    £500 for a pair of pedals does not seem that cheap to me!

    One pedal!

    edit – actually, it is a pair, but only one is a power meter. It’s 800 notes for a proper pair.

    That Merlin workstand looks almost identical to my £45 Halfords one, except the Nob is a different colour$ja=tsid:|cid:17632965067|agid:|tid:|crid:|nw:x|rnd:1862857204913823066|dvc:c|adp:|mt:|loc:1007150&gclid=CjwKCAjwqJSaBhBUEiwAg5W9p-H3JMsJP-berHbjERocNyHtWJmzSlDqOHHqYCrLWWCdit0L_OrvixoCq-wQAvD_BwE

    implying its £100 for the dumb pedal on the single power meter pair. So £100 for essentially a copy of a single shimano M520, which are £30 for a pair.

    Hmmm.. While I acknowledge that many of the items highlighted in this areticle are heavily discounted, i wouldnt consider many of them to be genuinely “cheap”. A wonder round your locla decathlon, or a browse of amazon/ebay will reveal a range of perfectrly functional alternatives for substantially less money. Particulaly the Grips, Trailer and Lights.

    The helmets seem particulalry good value, and the dropper is cheap for a dropper, I’ll grant you.

    Maybe the article should be remnames “discount tuesdays” insteead?

    Absolutely! The saving on the Giro lid, however, will need to be spent on a Halo headband to stop the rivers of sweat pouring into your eyes. If its anything like the non-MIPS version that is!! 😂

    Is the knog light MTB/trail proof? I followed the link and only saw mention of road stuff..

    I used to love our Burley Bee trailer. The only problem was my twins would spend the whole time fighting and we never got anywhere because I kept having to stop to break it up (or go back and find whatever they’d thrown out of it). Now they’re 4 they can pedal their own bikes. Lol
