hardly the lighthouse of Alexandria but less than £12 delivered..the mount is the caveat..i use the 700 lumen version to commute with no problems, though i believe the lights are go pro style mount compatible so that may be a solution if the mount is duff.

Looks a pretty good deal for frameset and headset, no import duties etc.

THat's not a bad shout, but i think the ION ARC 650 for £18 is potentially also a good shout, as long as you don't mind the potential reliabilty problem according to some of the reviews ( ie using it as a second light)

On that Radial there are a couple of other colour options on the site, and a couple of other sizes (in those colours) as I recall.

Windproof wool jacket half price at £125 too. All sizes. I've no idea if it's a good cycling jacket, but looks like quite a nice wool jacket generally.

Not a bargain in its own right, but could be a useful way to finance an e-bike or two, if you live in Scotland.

Or simply trial an e-bike from 3 days to 3 weeks.

Muc off dry lube £3.99 for the 120 ml bottle at Halfords: https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike-m ... cant-120ml

Amazon had it at the same price as an add-on item but I couldn't find anything else that wasn't cheaper at CRC etc.
10% off with BC card at Halfords - although the guy on the till said they were stopping the discount soon on stuff already discounted online. May be BS.

Anyone bought https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bike-p ... -tyre-700c recently from Halfords and can tell me/us what size they are?

If they are 700x28s, think I'm going to hit the trigger, ~£27.90 each with BC discount looks worth a first punt at these "premium" winter tyres.

30% off some clothing before BC discount, yet to spot any specific deals https://www.halfords.com/cycling/cycling-clothing

There's an option to choose 23/25/28 under the picture of the tyre - the 28s are 31.99 (pre BC discount)

LOL, I've looked at that page many times over the last week and I'm used to seeing that size drop-down window on their tyres... But not once have I seen in on the 4-seasons! :lol: :oops:

I really am in the land of the fairies recently, wandering round stuck in neutral at best.

Edit: https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/specials/e ... ason-sale/ Might be something in that EOL sale.

Give this a go, it is a serious bargain at 40% off and comes with extra equipment behind the saddle :wink:
