Sealskinz Road Thin Mid waterproof socks –
£37.00 – £22.20

Arundel Dave-O Carbon bottle cage –
£55.00 – £19.99
Although it’s white this bottle cage really is carbon. And as such it weighs in at a scant 30g!

Huge discount on this at the mo.

Castelli Diverso socks –
£17.99 – £10.79

Topeak Ratchet Rocket Lite DX –
£27.99 – £20.49
Sure, you CAN use this a multi-tool – or even a workshop tool – but the principal joy of this item is fiddling with it while you’re doing other things (watching telly, pretending to do work, sat in A&E etc etc). You might drive other people around you to distraction but that’s tough. An addictively clicky thing.
