Welcome to this week’s best bike bargains on the WWW
School’s out (not that it has actually been ‘in’ since March) so chances are you’ll be needing some stuff for daytrips and longer days in the saddle.
‘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.
Free £50 bike service voucher
You may have seen this in your various news feeds over the past few days – probably complaining that the Gov’s website crashed and couldn’t handle the demand. Now the demand has plateaud, why not give this Halfords-specific link a try?
RockShox Recon Gold RL 27.5in 140mm fork was £449.99, now £199.99
Save 56%! A couple of months ago, due to public demand, we created a Buyers guide to cheap RockShox forks. Whilst we were assembling the guide we were struck by just how competent entry-level forks actually are these days. Check out these Recons; 140mm travel with bolt-thru axle for under two hundred quid!
Buzz Rack Buzzrunner Spark Tilting 3 Bike Cycle Carrier was £375.00, now £277.99
Save £97.01! Make the most of your summer, before the threatened return of lockdown hits, by getting away from your much-ridden local trails. One way of making bike-based trips away much easier is a proper way of carrying your bikes outside of the vehicle. Like this one here in fact.
POC Omne Air Spin Resistance helmet was £140.00, now £104.99
Save £35.01! Although perhaps a little shy of visor-length to be properly mountain bikey, the Omne helmet from POC makes a great all-round bike helmet for those who like to mix things up with a bit of commuting, touring, family riding as well as trail riding.
Race Face Charge Sub Zero Leg Guard was £44.95, now £22.48
Save 50%! The ‘guard’ label is arguably a bit misleading, seeing as there’s precious little in the way of actual armour or padding in these extended-length knee sleeves. But if you just want something to keep minor scuffs and nettle stings(!) at bay, then these are worth a gander.
Nukeproof Blackline shorts was £60.00, now £36.00
Save 40%! Stretch fabric with DWR water repellent treatment. Velcro adjustment tabs on the inside of the waist and silicone grip on the inside of the waist. Two zipped front pockets and a zipped back pocket. Solid triple-stitched hems on the inside of the leg.
Mobi V-17 Portable Bike Pressure Washer was £149.99, now £89.99

Brand-X Carbon Riser Bar was £99.99, now £69.99
Save 30%! 9° backsweep, 6° upsweep. Carbon UD and 3K weave. Particle paint on the bar ends and clamp areas, which provides additional anti-slip friction. Each handlebar is certified to ISO 4210-2. Available in 12mm, 25mm and 38mm rises and 780mm and 800mm widths. All 31.8mm clamp.
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.
