I've sent a few weeks putting this together - http://www.spokes.co.uk/ which is basically a Groupon type site for bikes, clothing and accessories.

Offers are pushed directly to Twitter and Facebook as they are added, so you can like or follow those sites to keep up to date with it if you like.

Otherwise I would really appreciate you sharing with club-mates, on club forums, sharing on Facebook etc to help spread the word.

Small print.....
I'm not actually making any money off of this at the moment, all of the deals are unsolicited from a large list of sale pages on cycling retailers sites. At some point that will change, but I haven't really thought that far ahead.

Any questions give me a shout...... :)

    Why? Because I'm guaranteed a seat all the way in.

    Thanks, I may look into that at some point, but currently I'm just focusing on finding the better deals that are around.

    Maybe that offer is for people who get the saying wrong and say: "Cheap at half the price."

    OT: Getting sayings wrong in a pet hate of mine.

    Well with Bikehound I think the site aggregates all products from retailers rather than flagging up the best bargains.

    SportPersut posts the retailers that offer them the most money :)
