Yeah, that nose piece is a bit annoying but they are fab. Slightly tempted to take itboffins....

I needed some thermal bibshorts to match the Gabba I got from Sigma... if you use the code EXTRA10 you can get a pair of Castelli Omloops for £62.50

If you can be bothered to create a new e-mail address / account you can also get a further £10 off by adding the code NCV2019 and they also give 3.5% Topcashback (so around £50 assuming TCB pays).

Those Omloops are the very best thing ever for Edinburgh spring, autumn, and, well, part of the "summer". I... must... resist...

RE the Rapha glasses, they don't really suit me. I see the sale has ended so if anyone on here wants them happy to send on for £45 posted - they're the white ones with bronze lenses. Never worn outside, just tried on in the house.

garmin 530 edge can be had with a £50 cashback card at the moment usually its £250.
winstanly are offering 11% off:
https://winstanleysbikes.co.uk/catalogs ... q=edge+530
that makes it £232
however wiggle will price match and you can use the £10 voucher
tacking it down to £222
then the cash back results in then end price of £172 for what DC rainmaker thinks is the best garmin to buy at the moment.

Castelli Transparente 4 LS jersey - Merlin and Tredz have it on offer, both for £75 in limited sizes, small and medium I think.

Tredz often have their £5 discount code as well, so £150 down to £70.

Was sorely tempted, but decided not to get one.

Reviews on Merlin are glowing.

R7000 cranks for £64. Cheapest I'd seen them in that spec elsewhere was over £100.

Great price, shame I'm waiting for a good deal on a 34/50 version to go with my 11-34 cassette still sitting in the spares box, to give me more climbing gears and a slightly easier bail out gear... Sadly I'm a sucker for more extreme inclines, my current mission* is to get out to Milland Hill and tackle its ~25% section towards the summit.

36/52 with 11-34 gives 28.6-127.6 gear inches, compared to 34/50 with 11-32 (what I have now on Cube) being a range of 28.7-122.7.

* Once I have a new, working gear cable installed, old one snapped on Tuesday and so I've used the "High" rear derailleur limit screw to give me the 16T sprocket (because sadly it won't screw in enough to give me 18T) with either chainring!

Will Wiggle definitely price match this though? They seem to state in their terms that competitor item must be in stock and available- Winstanley’s 530 is available for pre-order!?

I’ve got them to price match Winstanley with no problem, but the terms are that no other promotions apply, so I can’t see how to add the £10 voucher (and where does the £10 voucher originate?).

And another thing I’ve noticed: if I buy it through my Safari browser the full price is £359.99, but through my Chrome browser it’s £349.99. What’s that all about?

I believe the £10 voucher is for NEW customers (£10 off £50 spend) - I too have managed to get Wiggle to match the price (today), now just need to justify the spend!

wiggle wont let you stack but using most mail services you can user name + code@domain
e.g.
mygmail+wiggle1@gmail.com
mygmail+wiggle2@gmail.com

these will all go to mymail@gmail.com.
This is a good way to track who sold your mail address too.
