Cheaper Things Tuesday: Flats, Pants, Bumbags and stuff

by 6

Yes, we have renamed our weekly deals roundup feature. It is now called Cheaper Things Tuesday. Rejoice! Intended as a counterpoint to the “How much?!” Fresh Goods Friday feature, Cheaper Things Tuesday is here to help save you some cash on bike stuff that you might actually need.

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.

DMR Vault V2 Exclusive

DMR Vault V2 Exclusive was £120.00, now £49.99

A popular pedal among loads of flat earthers pedallers, this particular version of the Vault V2 is in an exclsuive-to-CRC-Wiggle colour combo of black and copper.

Race Face Atlas 31.8mm Alloy Handlebars

Race Face Atlas 31.8mm Alloy Handlebars was £68.00, now £36.99

31.8mm diameter handlebars made out of aluminium and in the classic sweeps of Race Face. There are some who would say that handlebars don’t really get better than this, regardless of price tag.

SKS Airworx 10.0 Floor Pump

SKS Airworx 10.0 Floor Pump was £44.99, now £33.74

Not the cheapest track pump you can trawl the internet for by any means but… once you’ve chucked out your third or fourth cheap track pump, you’ll settle on a really good one from a great brand such as SKS.

100% Brisker Gloves

100% Brisker Gloves was £28.99, now £19.99

As mentioned in our recent Buyers Guide to the Best Mountain Bike Gloves, the 100% Brisker gloves are pretty much standard issue for British bikers.

WTB SL8 Cromoly Saddle

WTB SL8 Cromoly Saddle was £74.99, now £27.99

If you find the classic WTB Volt saddle a bit too hefty/tall/padded, then you may wish to give this SL8 perch a go instead. It has the classic WTB flat seat profile, but with less… er, less.

MIchelin Mud Enduro Magi-X

Michelin Mud Enduro Magi-X 27.5 / 29 x 2.25in tyre was £49.99, now £27.49

Those who subscribe to the Members Newsletter will recognise this tyre. It was chosen by me [Benji] as one of my Editor’s Choice ‘Runners Up’ products. It is a great, great mud tyre.

DMR V11 pedal

DMR V11 pedal was £55.00, now £39.90

Composite version of the venerable DMR Vault. Not exactly much cheaper than the metal one listed above. Not actually significantly lighter. BUT plastic pedals do glide off stuff and shrug off impacts a bit better than metal pedals. So there you go.

Thule Rail 0 Hip Pack

Thule Rail 0 Hip Pack was £44.99, now £29.99

Thule Rail are the best bumbags for biking. We have a lot of time for them. We even gave one of the models an Editors Choice award recently. Thing is, they ain’t cheap. So praise be for this deal.

DHB Trail Trousers

DHB Trail Trousers was £90.00, now £30.00

Okay, so they may look a bit like school trousers crossed with Ron Hills (you say that like it’s a bad thing!) but in the current conditions you can never have too many pairs of riding kecks.

Fox Ranger Water Shorts

Fox Ranger Water Shorts was £75.00, now £40.00

Despite the best efforts of the long trouser police, there are still people out there who prefer to ride in weatherproof shorts. These are for they. The perverts.

Spank Split Stem

Spank Split Stem was £84.99, now £24.99

Loads of lengths. Loads of colours. You may have to sift through the dropdown menu to find the best balance of length/colour/cost, but at time if writing there are plenty to choose from. Available in 31.8 and 35mm flavours too.

Giro Fixture MIPS Helmet

Giro Fixture MIPS Helmet was £79.99, now £48.50

All you ever need in a lid. For under fifty quid. Hey! That rhymes. Which is at least something.

Scott Soldier 2 Knee Guards

Scott Soldier 2 Knee Guards was £73.00, now £49.99

We think the number ‘2’ refers to this being the second generation of Soldier knee guards from Scott, as opposed to being the amount of guards you get in the packet.

WARNING: 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.

    very disappointed £50 DMR vaults? we want £155 pedals reduced from £200 ;0)

    Full Member

    Odd request…

    When you’ve a link to a deal at crc, if it’s repeated at wiggle (some are done aren’t) could you possibly link to both?

    Doubt I’m the only one with wiggle plus so would be good to be able to pick wiggle but still put some pennies your way.

    Vaults are a bargain. If I rode flats. Maybe Mrs brain needs new.

    They are indeed… Sadly in some ways i’ve got 6 pairs of brand new pedals here at the moment.

    I feel much less urge to take the piss this week so I’d call that a success, good job stw!

    Vault’s always been a £50 pedal selling for way more because of brand recognition imo. If HT made an identical pedal, what would people pay? £50, £60 tops and they’d be less forgiving about the reliability too.

    Yeah, but this is £50 for a pair

    In honesty I’ve always felt flats seem overpriced when clipless offerings from the same manufacturer are available for notably less, have more parts, more assembly, more complexity etc. all of which should add a lump of cost.

    But what do I know?
