This is a much better bike for only a little bit more. Sub 10kg weight and decent components. Looks a great workhorse, commuting bike. The Raleigh has very low end components. Sadly the Neon is only available in a large frame but great value for those it fits. https://www.evanscycles.com/pinnacle-neon-1-2018-hybrid-bike-EV275567
Been looking for something like this for my little girl. Great find, thanks!
5+ helmet too https://www.evanscycles.com/schwinn-5-excursion-kid-s-helmet-EV354860
Thanks, great, price. I'm not seeing the Infant one for £4.50 though (looks to be £7.50 also). Would you have a link?
Mike Ashley brand. Avoid like the f***ing plague.
Fairly sure Mike Ashley managed to get Evan's stores with all the stock even though the supplier's lost out and weren't paid which I guess is typical of when stores enter administration, the creditors who provide stock seem to be near the end of the list of companies that are paid so there could be some bargains. I wish the stores and staff the best of luck, I've been in 2 Evans stores recently and the staff seemed friendly and competent (Cardiff and Bristol). Looking around an Evans stores some bikes seem good value and others are not so competitive. Marginally more competitive than independent bike shops in my opinion. Personally I prefer Cycle Republic as they are slightly more value orientated.
They have gone up a bit on 2019 models I think. Most of the £500-600 2019 bikes will come with Suntour forks. You will have to buy in end of season clearance to get a Rockshox in this price range. Nothing wrong with buying at Evans if you get a decent price, but beware of high street retailers assembling or servicing your bikes. These guys have no idea what they are doing most of the time. The bike I bought in November last year had already been serviced twice - I have had both seat and handlebar come loose while riding. Thankfully I noticed both in time and didn't crash because of it.
I got a pinnacle laterite from them early last year , did the ride100london on it, decent enough bike and has good reviews from bike sites/mags but now very wary of Evans now Cashley Ashley has got hold of it, I'm in the market for a similar bike but not from evans
"The more you spend, the better the discount" ie a bad way of saying up to 10% off really (apart from real cheap and right at borders of deal thresholds)
Posted this last week. If you’re in no rush or can get a price match, wait for wiggle Nice colour for the mrs though
This appears to be a price match but good for anyone who would prefer red or purple
Posted last week for the black or blue version @ wiggle. Great bags, heat.
Here you go! The one I used last week.
Hi, The original thread that had the google drive update folder link is no longer working. Any ideas where I can get the download from. Thanks
Yep mines been despatched, just need to find the article on how to upgrade the firmware
Got one too just been dispatched
Got one, thanks!
No minimum spend
what about £100 minimum spend?
That’s because greedy people buy 50 of them (annoyed)
Out of stock.
Thanks for unexpiring. I was gutted I missed this. Ordered
Back in stock and still £11.99
I've been looking for one of these at a reasonable price. All the third party ones hang down rather than point out. I actually want to mount a light on it. Oos now unfortunately
Thanks - gone for it. Even better, if you are a member of British Cycling you get 10% off.
Cheers, based on your comment I also tried this and although my store didn't have it in stock they were able to order it in from another store that did. I would have had to call in the store in person, but instead they gave me the contact centre number and I was able to place the order over the phone and pay the £4.99 for delivery. It's now showing despatched :)
You 'Hero' :) Thank you! Even if only a couple people managed to snag one, I am happy I posted this and helped - and hopefully they are too.
I phoned up Evans Cycles this morning and asked if they had any in stock (evans code EV336774) and they told me 1 in stock (same as it was showing yesterday on the website before it went OOS online). I have just picked up from the store and paid £139.99 and can confirm this is the upgradable Hero 2018 with model number CHDHB-501-RW. Long story short - give your local evans a call to see if they have it in stock!
Which is exactly what I am hoping for :)
This will be a Hero 2018, so that basically means it’s a Hero 5 black
Dam mike Ashley £5 shipping :/
Which Paramo jacket did you buy? Just done a quick search and the ones I'm seeing are the Ciclo & Quito which don't seem form fitting. Do Paramo use 'nikwax' on there products? or is it some revolutionary no treatment always Waterproof material (serious question). Questions cure ignorance. Cheers
Your have have to reproof any Goretex and any other denomination which ends in 'tex' from my understanding, however i 'second' your point i'd rather have £150 in my pocket. Based on the point of diminishing returns the C7 '1985' is highly acceptable and very rarely hits this price point, for the dedicated winter warrior or storm hunter i think it's a steal.
At an acquisition price of double - I’d re job people would sooner have a bit of condensate if it meant they had an additional 150 in their bin. Know what you are saying but paramo looks a bit dated and yes you do need to reproog gore products Good deal on a c7 at this price
Never liked Goretex, its just not breathable enough. I prefer the Paramo range, lifetime warranty and perfect for long distance relationship cycling. Does not condensate so much on the inside. They are a bit pricey but the jacket I have from them is just unreal. I stood under a shower for 10 minutes when I first got the jacket to test it and had a small bit of damp leak in through the hoody/chin section, all else was bone dry. I paid around 300 pounds 3 years ago and whenever I face the elements, I am forever thankful for this jacket. Never needed to use the warranty yet Goretex I also found wetted far too often, my coat does do this in the heaviest of downfalls but never seeps inside. Just some food for thought
Thanks, have just ordered. Don't forget Quidco @ 5% Tredz bikes have the same price now, with free delivery over £20.
A thin smear of grease on the two ends of the shackle really helps too, specially for when you have it forced round something and they're slightly out of alignment.
Just ordered my third one, the other two have been no trouble and the mounting brackets actually work. I would suggest some graphite powder in all locks to keep them lubed.
Gotta keep it lubed.
There are other OnGuard discounts on the Evans website BTW.
True, if there is one local you can always click and collect though!
Their website is down. Just remember you'll get spanked 4.99 postage now they are sports direct so picking up a few bits isn't as fun as it used to be
Yeah got a couple of bargains! Yep it’s a shame as a store opened locally recently and has been decent so far!
Nice but hate Mike Ashley who is going to ruin it. Cheap tho.
Obvs but I can see why they would group them into ages
....and so the moral is to go by head size rather than age
Yes and if your lucky enough to be an adult with a head that size you can buy one of these helmets for yourself for a tenner
eh? 54-58 is a common small/medium size
Found the 8+ same price...thanks. Almost ordered the 5+ :D
Nope. There are other non-smart versions that look similar which at some point may have been that cheap, but not this
I'm sure I've saw this for 200
Is that an ethernet port on the back?? Lol
Wiggle and CRC merged. They are WiggleCRC.
Funnily enough those Flak Beta are exactly the same price at Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oakley-936306-Sunglasses-Matte-Black/dp/B06XY6JG7S/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1542399740&sr=8-3&keywords=oakley+flak+beta
Wiggle own CRC and Halfords own tredz
used few times evans and each time i have sen great staff heat added
£4.99 delivery on items now, was free before on orders over £9. That's Sports Direct takeover kicking in, they didn't waste much time. Off to wiggle, Chain Reaction or tredz now for my bits now
Good deal, but just to let you know I have found northwave shoes are very narrow.
Wonder how these compare with DHB?
Fwiw aero helmets do cut down on wind noise and therefore increase awareness of the cars around you the added advantage is they also keep your head warmer. These also help allegedly and are great if youre a fan of Elvis. https://www.cat-ears.com
Sounds like you should have bought one of these first.
I don’t think it has been mentioned but not only does it warn the rider it increases in light intensity as the car approaches. Therefore saving battery when no one is behind you and becoming really bright and flashing hard when needed. They are a brilliant light and a very clever idea, superb if you have already bought into Garmin. You get what you pay for I’m afraid and at this price it is very good
Apparently ;) not with some Lippy on !
I bought one of these at the full price of £140 when it came out and never regretted it, I bought a second one for £80 in case anything happened to my first one as I wouldn't ride the road bike without it. When riding on the road bike at speed it's difficult to hear vehicles due to the noise of the air rushing past which means you need to constantly look which can be dangerous in itself as it's easy for a defect on the road to catch out the narrow tyres. You don't even need to be looking at this device as it beeps to warn you a car has come into range (up to 150m behind) then a quick glance down and you can see how many cars are coming and also how fast they're coming as well. Since it only tracks vehicles that are approaching you it works fine when in a cycle group with bikes behind you as they are ignored although you need to be careful with cars that approach then slow down to your speed as they'll disappear off the display which can catch you out when they move to overtake. If the car instead turns off it won't show on the display either so you need to keep an eye on the car in that case. In the previous thread someone asked about the usefulness on busy roads and it's not, aside from it beeping all the time as all the cars come past you don't really need to be warned of cars when they're constantly coming past. I find it useful on quiet country back roads which is where I primarily cycle on the road anyway where you may not see a car for ages and at times there are some drivers absolutely hammering it, if I see car coming up fast I'll move over as much as possible as I find some of those drivers don't give much space.
(lol) I'm only a keyboard warrior! I just hate that cycling has become such a rich person's hobby, drives me nuts
Do you go into pubs and say ‘who’s up for a fight’? (excited) you’ll only get backlash form cyclists on this thread.
That light has a separate battery pack so will take extra time to remove when locking the bike up, which is why I avoid such lights.
Rarely will you see a 5k road bike locked up .... Can you explain what's wrong with an Independent coffee shop, than a corporate chain... Believe it or not, shock horror, I've actually seen cyclists in Costa, Starbuck and McDonalds, must have been in oxygen debt, ehh ...or low blood sugar levels.....
I think if comments were more objective than subjective; concentrating a bit more on the product itself would help, trawling through a lot of junk comments is a pain.
Hearsay is that the supplied tyres are great apart from in the wet. Id also look to stick gp4000s on as I have complete confidence in them in all conditions. Please let me know how you get on. Enjoy.
Hard to say as I haven't cycled on them but they are not as deep of a rim and they are lighter (by 220g), potentially more stiff. Are these tyres tubeless? Hard to tell. Was going to stick my GP4000 II tyres on it but if these are tubeless I might stick with these and see how I get on. Never used tubeless previously.
How do they compare to the cosmic elites? Would be good to know even if the deal is expired. Anyone running these with clinchers rather than the supplied tubeless ( lots of Pros but not good in the wet from reading around)? Thanks in advance.
Showing as back in stock, not sure for how long though!
Seem to be back in stock
Think I’ll use the turbo but if I commuted then these would be nice and dry.
The celsius seem to have been a better boot, but no longer made unfortunately...
Have had northwave boots before and good but don't like the lace on these and they're not as warm for my feet as my celsius's. Good price though.
My mate had a pair the neoprene ripped open at the front on the ankle join, they replaced them.. they just don’t look as tough as my pair from a few years ago
For that price they want to pedal my bike for me :o
Are these designed in such a sway as to prevent roadies 'flipping the bird' continuously?
Out of stock.
Got mine as well - sizing is a little on the small side but for £5 for a decent pair of gloves you can't complain.
They've gone !
