Thread to tell everyone what bargains you've spotted!

Postby TailWindHome » Wed Dec 30, 2009 19:38 pm

or Things you should buy!

Have thought for sometime we should have a thread to point out the cycle sale bargains and discount offers we have spotted as opposed to 'Things we have bought'.


While I know we probably all get the same newsletter emails there may be hidden gems we have missed and sure don't we all like a bit of window shopping.

I'll kick off.

Carbon fibre with a 105 groupset for' £825 , that's got to make sense. :D

XMAS09 gets you 10% off and free delivery at www.rapha.cc until the end of 3rd Jan. I'm sure you'll all agree that it makes everything on their website an absolute steal... :D

Sportsshoes had some Goretex Paclites for around £70, before Christmas.

Also had loads of other bits of Cycling stuff, too many to mention.

At 6ft 5 and 17 stone, I tend to find XL cycling clothing to be a touch on the snug side :lol:

HURRY-20GBP for the £20 off £100. Not sure why the email says to use the same one in both cases.
