SunRace wide-range cassettes in 10/11/12 speeds in the sale at Merlin Cycles

Save up to 40%! Once you’ve spent your hard-earned cash on yet another wide-range cassette from one of the Big Two S Brands, you quickly start to look for alternative options. And for our money, there’s still no one offering the range, weights, shifting, quality and durability that SunRace’s big cassettes do.

SRAM NX Eagle DUB 12sp groupset was £365.00, now £204.99

Save 44%! Or if your bike needs a bit more replacing than a mere cassette, you need to start weighing up the financial benefits of simply buying a whole new groupset/drivetrain.

Afton Keegan MTB shoes was £79.99, now £47.99

Save 40%! The quesiton everyone will be asking about these discounted riding sneakers is: are they as good as Five Tens? Well, we can’t actualyl vouch for that specifically BUT we do know that the sole rubberof these Afton keegans is 60a, which is a smidge softer than the rubber found on standard Five Ten Freeriders. So, the grip should be there at least. And for under fifty quid, they’re worth a punt if you get through a lot of riding shoes in a seaosn.

Shimano Zee M640 Disc Brake was £144.99, now £86.99

Deals don’t last forever

The intrinsic nature of sales is that they don’t last forever. They are on for a limited time; either the stock sells out and there’s none left, or the price goes back up again once the sales promotion is over. In other words, check the date when this story was published (see top of page, publication dates is listed next to the author name) to see when these deals were announced and act fast.
