February is short on days but big on deals
It’s Valentine’s week so treat the one you love most (ie. your bike) to some shiny new bits and bobs. It’ll repay you in spades, guaranteed.
Camelbak Podium Dirt Series bottle –
£14.99 – £9.99
Save 33%! This is the mountain bike friendly version of the popular road cycling Podium bottle. Essentially that means it comes with a cap for keeping the filth out of the mouthpiece. It’s also got the Jet Valve for squeeze-and-go ease of use. If you’re paranoid about leaks (for when stuffing the bottle in your riding/daypack for example) you can also lock off the valve completely.
Castelli Diluvio gloves –
£34.99 – £20.00
Save 43%! Neoprene weatherproof gloves from the oh-so-stlyish Italian apparel brand Castelli. Other than the non-slip gripper on the palm these are refreshingly free of gimmicks. Just no nonsense performers from one of the originators of tech cycling clobber.
Park Tools Cable and Housing cutter –
£35.00 – £23.99
Save 31%! How many of these have Park Tools made over the years? And how many mountain bikers have a pair of them in their toolboxes? Loads and loads are the answers to those questions. If for some reason you don’t yet own a set, here you go.
Abus Bordo 6000 75cm Folding Lock –
£74.99 – £53.62
Save 28%! Why on earth would you want a folding lock instead of a good ol’ dependable U-lock? Transportability is the answer. You can bung one of these folding locks in any old dinky pack. Ideal for night rides that end in a pub (don’t they all end in a pub?)
Elite Custom Race Stealth Bottle Cage –
£9.99 – £6.99
Save 30%! Forget the rest, fit the best- Elite! Light, durable, cool looking (especially in this stealthy Ninja-esque nonemoreblack colourway). The great thing about Elite’s cages is the rubber tensioner that holds on to bottles with great tenacity.
Lezyne Super Drive 1500 XL light –
£109.99 – £65.99
Save 40%! We like Lezyne lights. Self-contained, stylish little numbers with a very well thoguht out layout and tweak-able control arrangement ie. you can bypass all the different cycle-through power levels and just run it as full-power (1,500 lumens) and economy modes (250 lumens).

Camelbak Flash Flo LR Belt –
£55.00 – £33.00
Save 40%! Don’t call it as bumbag okay? The Flash Flo LR Belt is quite clearly a hydration belt. 1.5 litre bladder. 3.5 litres of storage. Zipped phone pocket. Not a bumbag. Okay, it’s a bumbag. Still cool though.
Shimano Ultegra/XT CN-HG701 11 speed chain –
£34.99 – £23.95
