Cheaper Things Tuesday: Same But Different

by and 6

We have a slightly different version of Cheaper Things Tuesday for you this week. Everyone can read what you’re reading now, but only Singletrack Members will see all the great deals we’ve found.

Before we head through the keyhole, here’s a couple of great deals for everyone.

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.

Nukeproof Mega 290 Comp Alloy Bike (Deore)

Nukeproof Mega 290 Comp Alloy Bike (Deore) was £2,999.999, now £1,999.99

The next issue of the magazine has a test of bikes around the £2k mark – here’s a £3k bike reduced down to £2k! Alloy frame, 170mm RockShox Domain suspension forks and a Super Deluxe rear shock, Shimano Deore drivetrain, available in size Medium upwards.

Shimano MT800 HTII BB

Shimano MT800 HTII BB was £27.99, now £15,99

At some point in your life, your bottom bracket is going to need replacing. It makes a lot of sense to stock up as and when you come across a decent deal on BBs that are in the correct flavour. Got a Shimano flavoured bottom? Rejoice at this deal!

Aww…sadface. If you’re not a Singletrack Member then that’s all you get! Everyone else, read on…

Issue 154

What’s inside Singletrack World issue 154? Let’s start with the cover – Pete Scullion does it…

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.

    What’s with the length of the Fox trousers? They’re going to turn into 3/4 shorts once you’re sat pedalling. No wonder they’re discounted! 😁

    I have some of those Fox ‘pants’.  They are good for riding but I always feel there is a bit of plus fours about their style, not a great look

    fox just tend to be short.. and the ankle isnt enough to cover my goretex five ten trail cross..

    if that slx cassette had been 10-51t i’d have jumped in..

    “Contrary to what you may believe, not everyone in the world is riding around on 140mm travel 29ers. Perhaps they should be ,but they’re not. These are top forks for those happy souls ragging around on 150-160mm 27.5in bikes. Gawd bless ’em.”   :0)

    Riding trousers in general tend to be a bit shorter than is ideal, it’s bloody annoying tbh. Worst that happens if the lower leg is a bit long? Nothing. A slightly overlong leg generally works better not worse. They look nicer if they’re the “ideal” length is all

    That Mega is a bargain at £2k!!

    Pity the SLX cassette isn’t 10-51, I could do with a spare.

    Shame for the Nukeproof dealers sat on stock they bought from Hotlines for more than the same company’s retail arm is now selling them for.
