    How does Black Friday now seem to last all of November?!

    Oh and if anyone sees a decent offer on a small Chromebook (like really dinky, very lightweight), please let me know!

    I’m after a Google Pixel 6a (I think…)

    I may also splash out on a new TV seeing as the (sole) existing TV is about 12 yrs old and “only” 37″ & 720p resolution. Keep in eye out for a new thread as I know sod all about TVs these days 😃

    Bought a new phone last weekend on a pre-Black Friday deal, a Pixel 6 with case and screen protector kit for £350. Thought it was a Renewed/Recon one at first but a closer look at the listing showed it to be a new one, turned up in a sealed box so very happy. The deal has now gone and is back up to the £450 mar like a lot of other places. Also picked up a few Mini bits from the MiniSport sale that should arrive this week, some of which will sit on a shelf for a decade!

    Because there’s an impending recession and retailers have to shift goods asap to reluctant consumers to pay their energy bills.

    I’ve ordered some carbon Vel wheels for my road bike from Sigma. 45% off and they are pretty much my local shop to boot

    How in the holy hell do you keep breaking knives?
    Are you using them as hammers/spanners/tyre levers/anvils or what?

    ^id be buying a Samsung S95b at that kind of money personally, i wish id waited a bit longer before buying the awful LG thing i ended up with 12 months ago.

    I annoyingly missed out on a £125 exposure race just before bf, now i cant bring myself to pay the ‘cheap’ £175 the black friday deals currently want 😂

    Bought some winter mtb boots though.. toasty feet for me!

    Had ordered one of the frame Samsung but had to send it back as slim mount meant it didn’t fit over the power and data input I had put high up the wall to hide any wires!

    Shame as it did look lovely.

    Innit.

    I’ve already spunked my wad on heavily discounted bike stuff from CRC, Superstar, Sport Pursuit and others. All 50% off or more.

    I think they’re all trying to get in early in anticipation of people having less to spend, what with the cost of living crisis and all.

    How can we have black Friday, when it’s not even a bank holiday?

    The original reason for the sales is it’s the day after thanksgiving which is usually a holiday as well, so people did their Christmas shopping.

    Seeing as we don’t have the day off to go shopping, it’s just a load of shops trying to extract as much money from your wallet as soon as possible before you have chance to spend it on Christmas shopping somewhere else.

    Oh it’s definitely an American import but I think it also tied in with the rough time in the year that shops reached break-even point and could therefore afford to discount stuff as well as create space for next year’s tat essential consumer products.

    I still remember – when BF first became A Thing – of fights in supermarkets as everyone rushed in to grab TVs. The Asda near where I worked at the time had to close its doors for a few hours while the police sorted it all out!

    Traditionally BF was supposed to be an in-store thing with Cyber Monday an online one but now it’s just a mad consumer frenzy for most of November…

    I’d assume the vast majority of “Black Friday” shopping is done with a mouse, possibly during work hours.

    Black Friday is just a (quite effective) marketing label, even if we know that its coming and that retailers have stocked up especially for it.

    That 161 XT looks like the pick of the crop to me.

    Personally I’d have the extra travel if I were getting a bike that chonky.

    If privateer had a frame only on sale I would probably jump on it.

    Trying to think about how much I can sell the parts on it but it does invite a lot of hassle

    Sportful Fiandra NoRain Pro bib shorts? No personal experience of them but Sportful stuff is generally top notch..(watch out for the sizing though)

    I’m looking fora Shockwiz… Biketart are currently the cheapest but a bit less would be even nicer.

    Would quite like a new TV, but think we’ll just wait.

    amtico/karndean flooring

    We have that in the new house. Hate it, absolute bugger to clean, stains really easily.

    I bought a Commencal Meta Hardtail from CRC. Started building, but needs a headset, so have ordered one from Superstar with a BF code 🙂

    Just now tried to order one of the bargain Pixel phones, but kept getting errors and timeouts on the Google store so gave up. I’m sure my Pixel 3a will last another year anyway.

    I think the Pixel 6a is the same price at many outlets.

    Keeping my eyes open for an air fryer.

    A set of Santoku knives to replace my Global ones which keep breaking

    As in, knives from santokuknives.co.uk? Bought a set earlier this year, our first proper decent knife set – they are amazing (to us, who know no different!) but be aware they took aaaaaaages to arrive and their customer service didn’t reply to a single query. So don’t plan dinner parties to showcase them until they turn up. 🙂

    They are lovely knives, though. 🙂
