Syncros FL1.0 Rise Carbon bar –
£115.99 – £87.00
Don’t believe those folks that claim that carbon handlebars aren’t worth it. Maybe the bars that cost $1million aren’t worth it but carbon bars are surprisingly good place to save weight whilst also adding to ride feel. Low rise 740mm wide bars from Syncros are a great choice for smaller riders.

Blackburn Heist 6 multitool –

£18.85 – £13.30
Nice long handle for undoing BBs that got a bit stuck and a handy integrated preloader cinch-up tool thingy (that black plastic knurled dial). Non-slip comfy rubber handle for comfort. Good to have nice tools innit.
Currently available for only £13.30!
Hope Technology Tech E E4 disc brake –
£165.00 – £134.99
If the everyday/obvious option of Shimano 2-pot brakes doesn’t float your boat – or offer enough power – then here’s some Barnoldswick bling sporting 4-pot braking power. Oof!

Specialized Command IR dropper post –
£250.00 – £125.00
Something of an alternative choice to the ubiquitous – and more expensive – RockShox Reverb dropper post. The Command Post is a very different beast to the Reverb. Mechanical, cable actuated, indexed height positions, layback clamp.

Specialized Shuffle kids helmet –
£34.99 – £17.50
A proper vented helmet that’s lighter than most (279g) and has a cool magnetic buckle system. Sizing is 50-55cm. The peak is removeable – or will come off in a big enough stack anyway.

Specialized Air Tool CO2 mini pump –
£40.00 – £15.99
NB: you do not get a C)2 cannister with this pump (mainly because it’s illegal to send CO2 in the post). If you’re after a diddy pump that you can use in conjunction with a CO2 cannister, that’s what this little thing is. One for the racers or those who ride minimal.
Currently available for only £15.99!
Shimano stainless gear inner cable –
£5.99 – £3.50
All bikes need inner gear cables.Even the fanciest Di2 electronic shifting doodahs still rely on the humble metal wire. There are no finer cables than Shimano’s. Yes they will work just fine with SRAM stuff too.

Shimano Deore M615 disc brake F&R –
£139.98 – £99.95
The M615 is a humble but classic disc brake design. Found on countless mid-range mountain bikes and prized for its reliability and performance. A great replacement brakes or an upgrade from bog-standard OEM brakes you may be currently lumbered with.

RockShox Yari Solo Air 160mm fork 27.5in –
£647.00 – £349.00
Currently available for only £349.00!
NB: supplied without a shock pump or the usual service kit stuff. The Yari is the everyman’s Pike. A bit heavier than a Pike and uses the Motion Control damper as opposed to the fancier/newer damper that’s in the Pike that I can’t remember the name of at the mo. Hey, it’s Monday. Where’s my coffee?
