6 pack of inner tubes – £26.99 – £11.99

X-Tools storage hooks – £2.49 – £1.49

Whilst these may hold the record for the most boring thing we’ve ever put in Dirty Deals, there’s no denying that spring is here and lots of folks will be looking to re-jig their bike storage arrangements. Hooks innit.

Oneten windproof jacket – £39.99 – £23.99

This is a stow-away jacket with just that little bit more to it than the roadie-centric minimalist options you sometimes see. Back vent, microfleece collar, underarm mesh panelling, reflective accents, storage security pocket. If you dig the blue and neon yellow colourway you’re quids in.

Women’s Troy Lee Designs ACE gloves – £29.99 – £17.99

Oakley Trillbe Iridium glasses – £110.00 – £65.20

With all the focus and hype with Oakley being about their newly (admittedly excellent Prizm lenses) there are consequently some excellent bargains ot be found on their premium lensed eyewear from a couple of generations ago.

Troy Lee Designs A1 helmet – £109.99 – £65.49

Apologies for putting a Troy Lee Designs A1 helmet in Dirty Deals AGAIN but… well, tough. A bargain is a bargain and a great helmet is a great helmet. This isnt the MIPS A1 version by the way (although that version is also in the sale).

Finish Line brush set – £14.99 – £8.99

Currently available for only £8.99!

Are these even more boring boring than the storage hooks? Maybe. But whilst you’re busy sorting out your bike storage you really should be looking into sorting out your bike cleaning set-up and logistics.
