‘Buy Now’ links
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.
Wilier Face Mask was £8.99, now £7.99
Save 11%! Well, if you’re going to be wearing a facemask then it may as well be a facemask from a bike brand. Available in various colourways. Washable.
Fox Racing Shox Transfer Performance Dropper Post was £319.00, now £245.99
Save 23%! Cable actuated with tool-free quick disconnect for easier installation and removal. Low lever force provides consistent actuation pressure even with saddle weighted or unweighted. Possible to modulate return speed with lever. 30.9 or 31.6 diameters. Drop options: 100mm, 125mm, 175mm.
Mavic Crossmax Elite 27.5 MTB Wheels was £499.00, n0w £349.00
Save 30%! At a mere 22mm internal width, these Crossmax Elite wheels aren’t heavy duty enduro hoops but are more geared towards the narrower tyre XC end of the riding spectrum. Having said that, they would make for an ideal second wheelset to have in store for skinner tyre duties such as bikepacking or even all-out mud-bath thrashing.
Cannondale Cypher MTB Helmet was £99.99, now £49.99
Save 50%! Loads of vents (thirty in total, thirty!) combined with a peak and a retention band, the Cypher is a very airy and regular riding helmet. At its proper price of one hundred pounds it’s a tad on the pricey side (considering it doesn’t includes MIPS liner etc) but at this fifty quid level, it’s a great deal.
Fidlock Twist Bottle 450 Kit was £29.99, now £25.00
Save 17%! Even if your bike can fit a bottle cage in it, chances are it’s a bit of tight squeeze getting the bottle in and out of it, especially while riding along. As the name suggests, this is the 450ml capacity option, which is rather modest but arguably bang-on for a lot of folks’ typical ride demands (it’s not just us who frequently finish rides way before our bottles are empty).
Gusset GS-11 Oil Slick 11 Speed Chain was £59.99, now £47.99
Save 20%! Make believe you’ve got a SRAM AXS groupset with this oil-slick finihed chain. It’s also available in 10 speed flavour too if you have a search around via the Buy Now link below.
Supacaz Grizips Clear Lock-On Grips was £19.99, now £13.50
Save 29%! Any time a fattish softish lock-on grip is in the sales, it’s worth including in mbr Dirty Deals. This time it’s a pair of 32mm diameter dual-density Supacaz Grizips in the mucky mix.
Schwalbe Dirty Dan Ultra Soft Addix 27.5 Tyre was £64.99, now £44.99
Save 31%! Bear with us while we proselytise about this special hoop of rubber. It may not be one of the latest designs but the Dirty Dan does not need to change. It is an exceptionally capable mud tyre particularly if you riding mud of steep gradient.
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.
