Big sales on at the mighty Amazon on Tuesday July 17 - with some deals sneaking out already!

This is when the massive online retailer puts on a variety of temporary flash sales. There’s always some great Amazon Prime Day mountain bike deals to be had. It’s Tuesday July 17 this year.

It’s kinda like Black Friday but specific to Amazon. And just like Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day lasts more than just a day. It’s not as bad as Black Friday week though. Amazon Prime Day lasts a mere 30 hours. The first deals will start appearing on Monday July 16 at 6pm UK time.

Yes, we know, it is a bit silly and annoying but that’s the modern world on internet flogging for you.

Amazon as you already know, pretty much sell anything and everything. They have bike stuff from big name brands like Garmin, Thule and some of the biggest names in bike helmets (always a popular purchase).

Yes, you need to be an Amazon Prime member BUT there’s a free trial

>>> Sign up for Amazon Prime membership free trial

You do have to be an Amazon Prime member to benefit from the deals. However, there is currently a 30-day-trial available (that you forget you’ve signed up to and end up ‘accidentally’ joining for a year and being charged seventy-odd quid or whatever it is).

If you are interested, becoming an Amazon Prime member costs £7.99 a month. Membership gives you things like free next day delivery, access to Prime video, music, books, magazine and gaming, exclusive 30-minute early access to Lightning Deals and so on.

Here’s a link to a 30-day free trial. Don’t forget to write when it expires on your kitchen calendar and/or in your phone. But you never know, you may wish to keep on with it. The Prime telly service is pretty good actually.

Our pick of the best live Amazon Prime Deals

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.

Save £10.78! The pink helper. No harmful acids. No CFCs. No solvents. Fully biodegradable. Safe on anodising, paintwork, carbon fibre, suspension seals, disc brake pads and skin.

GoPro Hero5 Prime Day bundle – £342 – £269

Save £73.00! This is one of the deals that we’ve been waiting for this Amazon Prime Day, and it’s a good’un. The Hero5 is a superb camera. It’s capable of shooting up to 4k footage and the in built stabilisation is really good. It can also shoot burst mode and time lapses. Its killer feature is that you can activate it with your voice. Aside from looking a bit weird at the top of the trails yelling “GoPro start filming” it actually works really well and saves a lot of faff time.

In this bundle you get a floating grip and a ‘super suit’, although it’s worth noting that the camera is waterproof on its own, the suit is simply if you want to go diving.

Gerber Suspension Multi-Tool – £62.40 – £34.98

Save £27.42! While we wouldn’t recommend using this on your suspension (why is it called teh ‘Suspension’ anyway?) we would definitely take this useful looking tool with us on our epic rides in the wilds. Or for doing household DIY in the absence of having any actual proper DIY tools, obvs.

We’re here to help

When Amazon Prime Day kicks off on Monday evening, the deals will come thick and fast. Every five minutes or so. It’s going to be hectic and all too easy to miss things or – more importantly – buy inappropriate products.

To help you out we’ll be updating this page with our recommended deals. Perhaps though the best thing to do is follow our social feeds – Facebook and especially Twitter – as this is will be regularly and quickly updated. Amazon Prime Day is going to thrive from social media due its blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nature.

Here’s what we suggest you do…

  • Bookmark this page
  • Write a list now of stuff you actually need (or treats you really, really want)
  • Set yourself a budget now (don’t be unrealistically mean about it though as you’ll not stick to it and then the floodgate will open!)

Amazon have been in touch with us and our road cycling sister site Cycling Weekly, and given us the nod that there’ll be some impressive deals of cycling products. Now then, time will tell whether mountain bike stuff gets represented much.

The focus will no doubt be on road cycling and commuting but there’s bound to be a big crossover of usage. We all use track pumps, we all like GPS devices, we all like workshop tools, we all like Action Cams and so on.
