Well at least it makes you visible - unlike all those black jackets - very unwise!
This one looks odd: https://www.cyclesurgery.com/p/gore-bikewear-womens-phantom-lady-gws-zip-off-jacket-N3134087.html?colour=3651
Good spot. Some great deals pity I can't really justify buying anything as I am well stocked in this dept.
ive got the gilet and its brilliant for offroad xc mtbing, keeps body warm and dry. the long sleeve element as jacket is excellent all year round with a base layer underneith for the warm blooded the fox mtb jackets are nice but sold out in bigger sizes throughout the day yesterday, the ladies gabba jersey seemed a great price.
Some great deals on there for top quality clothing. Heat added
It appears the Nutrak tubes are included in the 5 for £10 deal as well now - but can't say I know much about them.
Just received all of mine too, well chuffed!!
Great find, cheers OP! Arrived yesterday, individually shrink wrapped so ideal for carrying about.
Is this the cheapest place to get 700c tubes then.with this deal??
Don't need, but I'll be glad I bought them when I do, thank you!
Hey - cycling stuff at sane prices - that's a rare thing!
I think its a fashion thing and really seemed to start from people copying the sky team 8) even though the sky team are usually on closed roads in their black (and a little blue) outfits not busy town roads on a Saturday afternoon (shock)
absolutely agree with you.
Altura do a really good night vision range in high viz colours with reflective banding. Currently between £8 and £10 on planet x (plus 3.95 delivery). The also have the jersey here in a higher viz pink for £8.
Ordered. Thanks OP :D
Why are all cycling clothes so dark these days ? :/ Yeah bright clothes won't guarantee safety but surly it will stack the odds more in your favour. Years back you would struggle to find any black/dark cycling clothing now its all the rage and I see many in head to toe in black
Just received it! A bit different from the picture (logo different for instance) but looks genuine.
Its not a necessity but in the summer the better designed backpacks will let air flow around your back making them a bit more comfortable and less sweaty..
Is cycling compatible a necessity? I got a Tigernu (yes I’d never heard of them either) of Amazon from my daughters boyfriend and it is a cracking little rucksack.
Paid £165 a year or so ago. Not the best fit if I’m honest, stay waterproof on the shoulders though
£161 from Westbrook cycles with plenty of sizes https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/12843371762546113517?q=ENDURA MEN'S MT500 WATERPROOF JACKET II&biw=1366&bih=637&prds=hsec:online,paur:ClkAsKraX6zJg--wKeOk1owqr-wykEgbnEDnlk8PrfSjjAm6KOW2I2heCVDOUF5OulSzzMyJ9KxxTVZNA-zUJuZ3mIBVsi6ymeFh4DI-YW8hy6-MKUUPEF93FxIZAFPVH729Sv4p_CObGnycNaeEQHPf8sj_pg,scoring:p&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjTw5vQgdbYAhWoAsAKHdiFAfIQ2SsIDQ
any one who uses their brain would use two types of locks this had been said for years even when i was a little mort. the other thing is use them correctly i see so many idiots that do not put lock through frames and then wonder why the bike has gone. i wouldn't pay attention to these videos at the end of the day if these pros want your bike they will get it
Thanks ordered, saw the video and realised how poor my cable lock is.
Didn't work for me- I had a bike stolen from outside my work even though I'd removed the seat. In fact, when I went to a bar afterwards carrying the seat- the only part I had left- someone asked me if I'd pinched it!
£23.98 on amazon not bad but i reported lower price in some hope maybe amazon will price match, won't hold my breath tho as it normally requires a few people to say they seen the lower price before they consider matching
Thieves also super glue lock's hoping you can't unlock your bike then they come back in the dead of night with cordless angle grinder (mad)
Good price - heat!
Seems like a good price for a well reviewed jacket, normally goes for £80+
(embarrassed) whats the reason of voting cold, please???? (embarrassed)
Who invented being fat when you're older and broken eyesight and aging in general, if I bought this I'd look like a space hopper longing for his past. I had a few BMX's from 1982-1986, I was absolutely crap at BMXing, I couldn't do any stunts properly or ride properly but it was great fun, I let my mate's break their arms and legs, I stayed away from that. Anyway had great fun watching Stranger Things and pretending I'm 12 years old again. Let the good times roll.
Must have been some sales I had 12 large in my basket when I posted seemed good availability
Only size XL left, last night.
Different material which supposedly make it more durable and slightly different design
Does anyone know about difference between v1 and V2? Thank you

Very fewbikes come with better quality tyres at this price point, performance and wired indicate bottom of schwalbe range , can always get performance tyres tubeless
Does it have tubeless tires like the 2018
Yes I was. But hey, shot down in flames. I'd personally find the extra £500 that they're selling the Trance 2 for (maybe even use their 0% deal).
WELCOME5 gives 5% discount too
Most on here (me included) would never do enough to warrant the need for the upgrades you see as essential. As such, people will poo-poo your comment as being elitist when in reality, you're probably just trying to be helpful? :)
oos expire this dog
The scale 700 is super light and super expensive, probably overkill for a short commute, In terms of the 770 2016 model is reduced to £599, 2017 £749, go for the older model, similar spec. It's all deore and so should work well, 13.2kg sounds ok for a MTB at that price range. The scale 750 2016 model is down to £919 and down to 11.7kg a mix of slx and xt rear mech with a fox fork, noticeably lighter, but would it make that much a difference. once you set your mind or heart on a bike compare the componetry on the models and decide if the more expensive bike is worth it, tbh deore and slx parts tends to be similar priced on many of the website, the key price points are on the fork and wheels (no info given) and remember you can always upgrade overtime or do as I do buy the bikes and parts and resell specced parts as new unused, before you ride it. For example, A bog standard hg50 hg62 deore cassette 11-36t = 459grams or xt m771 is 336g, a significant weight saving for £20
Thanks for the response. My work commute is only around 3 miles there and back I just want a decent spec'd bike for my lay out of £600-800. Comfortable with longevity. I live near a Halfords which is great for tune ups etc however I wouldn't rely solely on them for that purpose as I can just pay for a silver or gold service. I'll be ordering soon and am thinking of the Scott 770 https://www.evanscycles.com/scott-scale-770-2016-mountain-bike-EV253332 or paying more for the Scott 700 if the extra money is worth it. Also the Boardmans at Halfords are well reviewed if anyone's had experience with those.
It really is spend a bit more and then you.ll enjoy it more, a cheaper bike gears will start crunching/slipping, brakes howling and noisy creeks, a good second hand bike is always an option, Anything with an RRP lower than £550-600 is not designed for true offroad, you.ll be fine on firetracks, smooth bridleways and canal towpaths when using bikes with drivetrains lower than deore, Keep an eye on the sales and try get a bike when on sale with deore that is 10 speed (i.e. Rear cassette is 10 cogs), and you can upgrade parts overtime, for example Merlin cycles sell m445 hydraulic brakes for £17.50 each, a good quality rear derailleur mech can be had for £20-25 @ je james (I posted the deal earlier)
Thanks for the reply, you are obviously much more informed than I am. I'm a beginner and don't want to spend as much as that. I'll probably only go to the Peaks a few times a year for a bit of fun. I wanted to spend 300-350. Obviously, with that budget I know I'm not getting anything special but I just want a solid bike that I can have some fun on.... and fall off of and it not be in a million bits :D
Would recommend this jacket, the zips under arms are great for regulating your temperature so you can avoid that bin liner feeling! If you change your base layer with the seasons can be used right through from Oct to April. I am also looking for a reasonably priced highly breathable jacket that is not skin tight but cant find anything either.
This is probably a decent jacket but TBH, in the UK weather, with a base layer and this on top you'll probably be too hot except on the coldest winter days. I've got an old Altura jacket from 10 years ago, which is amazingly breathable, with a 2 way zip, and with my base layer gives me sufficient warmth in the winter. Shame they don't make them anymore and I haven't seen any with the 2 way zip either, which used to be a standard function of Altura jackets. There doesn't seem to be much in the market for breathable jackets; you either got jackets like this or what are effectively breathable bin liners which will rip after a few uses. Majority of the cycling market is targeted at either the rich carbon fibre boys or the lowest level retail market, with nothing for those in the middle. Funny that!
Title says wind-proof but it appears to be waterproof. £50+ everywhere else - looks like a bargain. Women's version (Evo - slightly updated with hand warmer pockets) is only £40 in black (possibly less sensible/visible colour for cycling but it looks a lot better!). link
never too many jackets, or bikes for that matter.. N+1
This is very true. Wiggle and crc sales have been a joke over the last year. I will have a look at cycle surgery. Shame I've got too many jackets, or have i?
some good deals on gore bike wear, endura and a few other brands, nice to see a real bike shop sale, crb and wiggle put prices up or stay the same when they have sales on
Nice find, heat added :)
13 hot votes and stil a score of 6, clearly lots of non bikers on hukd today.
I've ordered one from sportsshoes.com for £85 delivered and 7% Quidco tracking. Not as good as your price but the best I could find at the moment. Thanks for the tip about the other Gore stuff - now with the weather getting colder I may have to invest in more gear!
Have a look on Amazon, I've had some great deals on gore bike recently, Paclite gtx jacket £63, element as windproof for £50-60, thermal zip £42
Can't believe this didn't get heat. I'm thinking of getting one of these jackets and this price was great - shame they're back up to their usual price of over £100.
full price now, maybe now people vote hot
They are only good at keeping your feet fairly dry. I bought a pair of mid length/weight and even when wearing a thick pair of socks beneath them, my feet still get cold when out mountain biking! The thermal liner sock offer a bit of warmth, but I think I am going to try some thick hiking socks instead.
Another heads up, their eBay shop sells the football socks for £9 posted.
similiar prices on CRB if you are a small or xl for mid/thick socks ideal for winter
Great deal that's still available on 15th too. Mods - can it be unexpired? Furthermore, add code: VCCYCLE10 to get an extra 10% off, brings it down to £26.10 (still with free delivery)
Despite the flash sale expecting to end on midnight of the 13th Jan, it's still available this morning (14th). Ah well.
If this deal temps a cyclist to actually get some lights then it's got to worth some heat
Heat, Great lights , great find. ;)
Great light, must be extremely bright as the Moon Comet rear I have ('only' 30 lumens) is exceedingly bright, and this has two more powerful (albeit much shorter) modes. Realistically though I'm not sure how much brighter a rear light needs to be. I only ever run mine in flashing or low mode as the object is to draw attention to yourself, not blind people following you! Voted hot though as this is a good price and I'm sure the front light must give a very wide, even light, great as a fill-in light for towpaths and narrow lanes.
