You got to love yourself before you love another


This Thursday is Valentine’s Day. But just ignore all that guff. Love you and your bike’s relationship and treat the both of you to some bikey bargains.

>>> Last week’s Dirty Deals:gloves, tools, brake pads and much more!

All of the brands and products here are ones we’d recommend from the regular, independent testing that we carry out every week. So these are either specific products that we’ve ridden and rated, or at the very least are brands we’re familiar with and rate highly.

You will notice that beneath each product summary is a ‘Buy Now’ link. If you click on one of these links then mbr may receive a small amount of money from the retailer should you go to purchase the product from them. Don’t worry, this does not affect the amount you pay.
