Save £20.00! Has lockdown got you thinking of trying something new with your bike? One of the more popular trends to hit the tweakers’ market is oval chainrings. Designed to even out your pedal power stroke, lessing dead spots and traction-spitting power spikes, some riders wear by them.

Park Tool DTC2 Rotor Truing Fork was £19.99, now £13.99
Save 31%! How many of us have a brake that rubs very slightly? How many of us just put up with it because it’s not that bad and we’re afraid fo making it worse if we start the heave away at the rotor willy nilly? Get yourself the proper tool for the job and quieten your ride.
Crank Brothers Highline Dropper Post was £299.00, now £114.99
Save 62%! Crank Brothers have come out with a new verison of the Highline now. The appreaciable updates are different lengths of drops and a faster extending speed. This version of the Highlie that’s in the sale is only available in 125mm drop lengths only and with the relatively slower extend speed (that can actually be useful when on the trail in our experience anyway!)
Endura SingleTrack Softshell Jacket was £99.99, now £50.00
Save 50%! In these times of hotter weather chances are you’ve not been thinking of getting yourself a new warm coat. But… the weather’s about to turn (sorry!) and a good jacket is actually useful at any time of year. Summer evenings spent lounging around often require jackets like thisone. Anyway, it’s a nice blue.
IXS Flow Evo+ Knee Guard was £69.99, now £35.00
Save 50%! A knee pad is best held up from below. By that, we mean that the better less droopy knee pads often have a extra fastening systme below or behind the knee itself. They don’t just rely on silicone gripper on the top hem (that never works very well). These Flow Evo+ have a cunning securement strap at the base, just at the top of the calf, that helps keep the whole pad from drooping down your leg.
Dirty 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.
