Good afternoon and welcome to the thirteenth edition of Cheap Things Tuesday. A veritable baker’s dozen of discount bike bits. You lucky, lucky people. We hope you like our roundup.
‘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.
Endura MT500 Waterproof Jacket 2
was £229.99, now £169.99
3-Layer waterproof jacket with fully seam-sealed construction. Impressive stats: waterproofness: 20,000 and breathability: 40,000. Despite the stats, nothing this waterproof will breathe as fast as it needs to when mountain biking so at least the full zip will be useful (as well as the pit vents). Has a hood (I deployed a hood-over-helmet on my ride at the weekend – what a godsend!). Nice blue colour. Which is very important.
Fox Ranger Windbloc Fire Jacket
was £200.00, now £134.97
A most excellently Blake’s 7 style garment from the Fox Head bods. If you’re one of those folk who have kind of given up on actual waterproof garments for UK MTBing, you are probably more interested in something like this. A softshell that is designed to stop you getting overly chilled down even though you may be wetted out after half an hour or so of rain. “Is it still raining? I hadn’t noticed.” – A. MacDowell.
Jamis Highpoint A1 Hardtail
was £899.99, now £600.00
Six hundred quid for a serviceable hardtail with decent parts, okay geometry and really good paint. Yes please. We’ve been impressed with the finish and spec on the Jamis Faultline bike we’ve got in for test at the mo, and this appears to share the same lovely paintjob actually, which is nice. So if you’re looking for a ‘spare’ bike to rag around on in the winter muck, this looks ideal.
B’Twin Workstand 500
was £69.99, now £54.99
Unless you’re working on bikes every day and/or all day, you don’t really need a megabucks workstand. Sure, fancy stands have quicker/better clamps and a general degreee of sturdiness to them, but for at-home occasional duties, own0-brand workstands like this one from Decathlon are fine.
Granger 2in1 Wash + Repel (1 Litre)
was £21.00, now £18.90
Give your existing waterproof outer layers another chance with this proper clean and reproofing stuff from Grangers. Yes, the discount is not exactly amazing (10% or something) but we thought it was a good shout.
Mucky Nutz Mudguard
was £19.99, now £17.99
How much better does a decent front mudguard make winter mountain biking? Approximately 4000% better. Guards like this one from Mucky Nutz are so good and discreet/quiet that you’ll probably just leave it on there all year. That’s what we do anyway!
Zefal Deflector RS75/FM60 Mudguard Set
was £35.99, now £26.24
Not exactly the nicest looking set of front and rear mudguards in the world (what are?) but if you’re absolutely fed up of a total soaking, give this combo a browse. Make sure the attachment mechanism fits your steerer and rear triangle/swingarm etc.
Garmin Edge 130 Plus GPOS MTB Bundle
was £239.99, now £197.99
I don’t know about you, but January always seems to be the time when my thoughts turn towards getting a proper GPS. Partly to keep track on distance/altitude tallies (to keep the inspiration to keep getting out on a bike) but mostly as a way of exploring new areas. If the riding conditions are going to be less than perfect (a given in January) then you may as well add novelty value and put in the groundwork that you can revisit in fairer times.
Elite Arion Parabolic Rollers
was £220.00, now £165.00
I know, I know. But… people do use these things. “Front roller is adjustable with 10 different positions to allow for perfect compatibility with the frame of the bike you’re using – both road and mountain bikes”, it says here.
Wahoo Kickr Core Smart Turbo Trainer
was £699.99, now £599.99
Ah gad. Another one. Soz! This one comes with a free Vel Turbo Trainer Accessories Bundle (£55.00 RRP), which is essentially a floor mat and sweat guard. Key MTBer spec info: “Drive side adapter for 130mm and 135mm quick release. Reversible hub spacer for 130mm and 135mm quick release. Drive side adapter for 12×142 and 12×148 thru-axle. Reversible hub spacer for thru-axle.”
SRAM GX Eagle Upgrade Kit
was £554.00, now £424.99
SRAM’s AXS wireless technology trickled down to GX level spec with the release of the SRAM GX Eagle AXS system. We like it. A lot. This product was selected for our Editors’ Choice Awards 2022, as published in Singletrack Magazine Issue 146 in fact.
Fulcrum Red Zone 3 Boost MTB Wheelset
was £599.99, now £307.50
A good wheelset if you’re building up a lightweight XC steed. Spec: spoke count of 24 on the front and 28 on the rear. Inner rim width of 25mm, so better with sub-2.4in rubbers.
NB: These deals will 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/months ago, chances are not every deal is going to still be live.
