NB: Deals expire!

Deals do not last forever. Stuff sells out. Retailers end promotions. Deals just… end. With that in mind, please check the date when this edition of Cheap Things Tuesday was published (it’s up at the top near the headline). If this edition was published a few days/weeks/monts ago, chances are not every deal is going to still be live.

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.

    Those 7Mesh bibs are my favourite summer bib shorts BTW. Been wearing a pair for a couple of years now (so they do last), nice and cool under baggies in the summer, even if they do look a bit fetish when revealed!

    ^ yeah, I just showed mrs_oab the picture as her summer shorts are worn out. Her first reaction was ‘kinky!’….

    The Dayblazer light looks amazing value. I remember back in the 90’s having a Specialized light costing about £25. It punched out something like 10w (lumens had not been invented back then) and ate a set of Duracells in an hour, and cost more per hour to run than I earnt as a pizza chef per hour.

    I have that UGOE light on my commuter.
    I wouldn’t want it on an MTB, beam pattern is a bit too wide for any real distance vision.
    Also the battery pack doesn’t really fit snugly and can wobble around.

    I have a couple of pairs of the gents version and love them. Cool, comfortable and handy pockets. Most definitely underwear though

    Just had a quality issue with the pad in my 7Mesh MK3 Bibs. Bear in mind they were 2 years old and worn multiple times a week, customer service response “Really sorry about this, it shouldn’t happen, would you be happy if we sent you out a replacement set to compensate for this issue?” WTF? YES, of course I would be happy! Not often you see this level of customer service and product support. Keep buying from the good people 🙂

    Briskers and the MET helmet are always available at those prices.

    Full Member

    Just be warned the Briskers size up smaller than the non hydromatic ones. Mine arrived yesterday and will have to go back, I’m already on XXL in the regular Briskers so these are a no go for me

    Free Member

    Yeah, same here. My non hydro pair are M and can’t get my hands in the M hydro ones.

    And me, L in brisker and have had to reorder the XL hydromatic.

    Full Member

    Same for me. Wear XL Briskers but the XL Hydros I bought last week are flippin’ tiny. I can barely get them on and once on I can’t bend my fingers.
    Have 100% got a random size sticker machine?

    I use a Dayblazer 1500 as my helmet light for night riding. Excellent bit of kit, bought as an upgrade for the 1000 which still gets occasional use. Highly recommend, particularly for that price!

    The pedals aren’t really cheap for what they are- discounted, sure, but they’re fairly generic ht or ht copy pedals, you can get better for less.

    Briskers and the MET helmet are always available at those prices.

    I take half of that back – these are the Hydromatic variant.
