Schwalbe Durano Plus Road Tyre 700C 28C 25C 23C £17.99 @ CRC
Found 26th NovFound 26th Nov
Good price for a decent winter tyre - I've found these much better than Conti Gatorskins in terms of grip in the wet, comfort and wear but of course YMMV. Reviewed/rolling resistan… Read more

Love these. Been using them for years. Got myself 25c and there was no reflective sidewall. Got the 28c for my other bike at the same time. Reflective wall. No idea why.


Thanks Flibble, appreciated. Reckon the extra may be worth it as I don't get out on my bike so much (I still use the ones I bought in Apr 14 :D ) and have a baby on the way so suspect that won't help!


GP 4000/5000 and GP 4 Seasons are generally regarded as the best consumer tyres but are also some of the most expensive, best place to find objective reviews for comparison is


How do these compare to Conti GP 4000 S Ii, anyone know pls? I ask as I have some of them on my old alloy beater and bloody love them! OPs look like the reflective side wall which is an absolute no brainer, almost to the point where I think no tyre should be sold without it!, heat


Rode them for a year in London and only got a single p******e! Great price for them, I’m tempted to buy them even if I’ve just ordered other tyres.

Vittoria Rubino Pro Folding Road Bike Tyre 700x23/25 @ChainReaction

25s are fine I’d stick with what you’ve got unless you start getting punctures


Guys, i'm running on continental 25 ultra sports for winter, are they suitable? or better going for a 28 in something like the durano? I've also got the original rubino pro's that came with the bike, would they be better?


Great tyres. Well worth it.


Used Rubino Pro’s myself on my winter bike for years and was happy with them. Very few punctures but not great in the wet. Switched to Duranos and found them much better. Just giving my opinion. I’m not on my own when I say they are not good in the wet but make your own mind up

Virus 20 kids bike - £159.99 @ CRC

Hi there! I've been watching this bike for a while and it's gone down from £229.99 to 159.99 plus £10 off if you are British cycling member and don't forget 4% cashback through Qu… Read more

Yes these have very good gear levers for kids, brakes are far better than v brakes and it’s light. I bought mine from wiggle fully built , just had to turn the handle bars. Delivered that is. Great service


How heavy is it? 9.4kg this is, front suspension waste of time and just weighs it down in cheaper bikes and hardly works


There is really good bike expecially in current price. My son have yellow one and definitely is the best bike around his friends


In my opinion go for vitus why? Does kids 6-8 needs front suspension? which makes bike heavier also Dawes got a revoshift which is poorly shifting, but this is my opinion , your choice


Is it worth a punt this or the Dawes bullet HT 20 for £170?

I’ve not seen one in the flesh but from this video review I’d agree with you:


I ordered this previously, i was disappointed. There wasn't any real laptop padding. The clips at the back get in the way for daily opening of the bag. The mesh bottle pockets aren't deep enough. It didn't feel like decent quality for the price.


If you want black it's £27.99 from wiggle. Great backpack for day use. Thumbs up.

winchman Another option is the hikelite for £35, has a trampoline vented back, and also includes a rain cover.

Vitus Razor VR Road Bike 2018 £449.99 @ CRC

I have this bike and it's very good. Only issue I have is front derailleur is a bit fiddly to adjust


This is clearly a knock off, there's nowhere near enough RGB lighting for it to be an official razor product. At least it's VR capable though :/


I know its an inferior drivetrain but you can get the Giant Contend for similar money. Slightly lighter, easier hill climbing (11-34T) and a much more advanced frame. Unfortunately limited frame sizes left. I think although Claris is worth considering over the Razor if your frame size is available.

Nukeproof Horizon Pro Pedals - 40% off - £41.99 @ CRC
Found 14th NovFound 14th Nov
Nukeproof Horizon Pro pedals reduced to £41.99. Same pedal as World Champ Sam Hill uses, just these ones are black. These are usually around £65 so great price!
Get dealGet deal

With two EWS titles from Sam Hill using these pedals they are arguably the best flat pedal on the market!


Was reading that these are very good pedals earlier in the day yesterday , with people saying they prefer these to dmr vaults /v12’s , pedal size they are 100mm x 100mm and 17mm thick, so ever so slightly smaller than vaults which are 105mm x 105mm Definately a hot deal for a great product


Weight: 430g


Apologies mr Ross, I was just reversing a common theme that gets posted a lot on this site when bicycles not sold by Tesco Asda or Halfords are added to hukd

Very rarely seen at this price, now back up to 37.49 shame I missed it 😫


Pretty standard price I'm afraid. Don't expect Park Tools or Snapon quality - things like the chain splitter don't last very long, but the spanners/wrenches are OK


Had one for years and it's still going strong


Had this kit for about 4yrs and for basic maintenance on my fleet it's held up very well (y)

Any other suggestions on alternatives for this? Was going to get this but it's gone out of stock (and more expensive elsewhere). Carrera Abyss mentioned above which seems decent (also around 10kg, which is a crucial factor for me (trying to accommodate 4 bikes on a bike rack). (and around £200) Dawes Blowfish also mentioned - but has no gears, which rules it out for me.




Can anyone help me with sizing? Would this be suitable for a smallish nine year old?


I hope that's sarcasm (flirt)

Tried ordering from Wiggle and CRC, both have cancelled the order, seems like they aren't honouring the deal


Depends on your goals. If you just go for the odd jog then yeah the phone is fine. If you run races and train a lot you can’t be holding a phone in your hand to check your distance, pace, HR etc. And if you do multiple sports you need something capable of tracking multiple sports. Yeah you can get cheaper versions, but sometimes its worth spending extra and getting the best you can personally afford


Yeah, I'll just use my phone the next time I'm doing an Ironman. I'm sure it'll hold up well during the swim and the battery will definitely still have charge after 14+ hours.


can your phone track your HR while you run, ride and swim ?


Colddddd who spends almost half a grand on a watch just use your phone

Get dealGet deal

I bought one too when either quidco or topcashback was giving bonus cashback which bought it down to about £16.50 I think with the normal cashback. Seems a good tool. Price back up now. If you need a derailleur hanger for your bike definitely go via somewhere like aliexpress. You can get them for 80-90p delivered but looking around on uk sites some charge as much as £24.99 although most are around £5-8 but they are pence direct from China and quality seems no different to those originally fitted to the bike.


Ended up buying one of these. So much easier.


Thanks OP, have thought about getting one of these before, but they've previously been at the £30 mark - a drop to 20 means I'll bite!


Definitely one of those on the list tools. A spare crank arm and old axle was good enough for an older bike, but it did take time.


I have this, it’s well made and has improved the shifting of all my bikes.

Thanks for this. Just ordered for my sons birthdays :-) Clear18 doesn't work, but they had £10 off for new customers so only £170!


I have a Cube mountain bike myself and I love it, but while buying a bike for your kid, please keep in mind this particular bike in this deal is not a proper mountain bike.


Cube bikes are great. I always go with a Cube or a Boardman for a bike with a decent spec (at a very reasonable price) that will last well. I've had a good few of each down the years but then I've always had two or three bikes or the go at once.

Brand X Dropper Post 150mm and 120mm £89.99 @ Chain reaction cycles
Found 3rd NovFound 3rd Nov
This has come down form £150 to £90 in an early black friday deal.

Great price - have some heat. &#x1F525;


Got my 120mm ascend dropper a couple of weeks ago for £99.99 really pleased with it, fairly easy to install. The remote I think has been updated from earlier models as I think it feels pretty solid. Bargain price compared to other brands. Works well.


Thanks for the update. Will update


The 150mm are back in stock. Got my 120mm today pleased to find that it came with the revised remote style of the later models.


I was going to post this yesterday but didn't think it would get the heat it deserved! Great dropper. Had mine about 8 months, used a lot, no issues at all. The lever is very good too, better than some of the much more expensive posts. Heat!

Get dealGet deal

Good point on this, looking at this deal I think why such cheap wheels on a boost specific bike. It’d be a good upgrade on a sub £500 bike but I can’t imagine many even have thru axles let alone the newer wider boost variant, the majority are still 9mm and 135mm/142mm on rear


This is a very helpful reply, you’ve just saved me the likely scenario of having to return these wheels. Thanks.


TBH, if you don't know what size fits your bike, then the wheels probably won't fit- boost wheel sets use a bolt through 15mm axle and a hub width of 110mm rather than the more common 100mm up front, at the back there's a 12mm bolt through with a hub width of 148mm, rather than 135 or 142mm. Basically, a high end mountain bike with 27.5 diameter wheels, and a Shimano drivetrain from the last couple of years.


How do I know what size will fit my bike? It says size available is 15x110mm 12x148mm
