If only kids wore them great price and quality by specialized
Great Watch and very light compared to Fenix. Added heat.
Yeah is a great watch. My friend has it and I’m considering it but I have a 920xt so the upgrade to that is the 935. Very tempted though.
If I hadn’t got a fenix 5 s in a deal on here I’d be all over this. Great watch
Had this watch for a while now I paid over £300 for it and was happy with it at that price.
It’s a good watch but Tri bundle is a bit of a misnomer - the 735XT is missing a functional altimeter and most triathletes will want that feature. If you’re not into the whole multi-sport thing then a Vivoactive 3 will be almost as good, look better and cost less, or even a Fenix 3 as an alternative.
Had this helmet for probably about a year and paid about £70 for it. I invested in it after seeing a video showing how MIPS can help to protect the brain on impact. Was a few extra pound compared with the older non-MIPS version, but I'm sure you wouldn't care about spending £20/30 with hindsight from an accident...
Try getting one that fits properly.
Ooooooor for that matter -- if you can stretch your budget and buy a Kask Rapido that sell for around £50-55. I would much rather have a Kask Rapido. I rate the Kask a lot higher than a lot of Giro helmets -- this Foray included. For the extra money you pay for the Rapido, you get a lot more helmet imo.
My head always looks like a mushroom when I use a cycle helmet.
If you can run out to a bike shop like Evanscycles or CycleSurgery which stock these helmets. Its good to try them on before you purchase because I personally find Giro helmets to be quite 'mushroomy'. If that doesnt worry you too much then carry on.I loved my Savant and Atmos II helmet.
Worth pointing out that this is 6800 Ultegra rather than the newer R8000 Ultegra Di2 groupset.
Two for one
Ordered. Thanks OP!
Cycle Revolution has it in Large for £8,999 and if their site reads right, you get 20% off if you add another road bike to the basket https://www.cycle-revolution.net/9231/products/cervelo-p5x-shimano-ultegra-di2-triathlon-bike-in-black.aspx
Ordered one for Father's Day. He's going to love it.
code MAYMATCH500 takes £500 off, Happy days.
Aye.. and drink beer to keep thee that way... ;) gonna be a lot of thin blokes dying of nothing :)
Comment was posted in jest, my dude. I don't think cyclists should pay road tax. If nothing else it would be a cluster ahem trying to administer it. For a start we'd need an exemption for kids under 16 who've promised to stay away from busy roads and only ride on the pavements. :D
Absolutely. I bought my Propel Advanced Pro 1 for £2,030 from Giant
Yes; but lovely aluminium, seriously strong, stiff, comfortable and comparatively light. I once brought some fulcrum racing 3s they outlasted the bike. After the frame wheels are next and often overlooked. carbon wheels unless for aero I think I'd rather alloy. Here's mine and loving it the 11 gears is taking some getting used to.
I might be missing something, but they are aluminium wheels right?
Really, for this price?
Giant Propel Advanced Pro or TCR Pro are better options.
Just ordered much appreciated 😁
Round beam? I'd always recommend a shaped beam, like a car headlight, which allows you to illuminate the road without blinding motorists, cyclists and pedestrians coming towards you - which does not make you safer.
Thank you, I will check this out (y)
I have had this light for just over a year now, and I've got to say it is well worth the money! it's bright enough for nighttime road cycling and extremely durable. I had to get a replacement part for a moon rear light (lost the rubber switch) and the parts were sent out quickly with no fuss.
ps. i posted this deal at the same time, for a £2 light https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ikea-jansjo-mini-usb-led-lamp-only-2-instore-ikea-2881831 they have both had 88 and 89 hot votes respectively, one is -26 the other over 200.. just shows how biased this site is to numptys seeing something at £2 being a bargain but an item that is £159 on multiple sites and reduced to £103 here is not a deal..
It's really quite easy to point these at the road. It's amazing just how much you think you can learn from someone just because they've bought a product you don't understand. If you think this person is somehow dangerous with a torch imagine how dangerous they'd be in a car?
A car headlight is 1800 lumens, these max out at a 1000. Yes it could be pointed in your eyes but plenty of cars have mis aligned headlights as well.
Less £5 for subscribing to the newsletter!
I've have these for running. So, so good. Really great sound quality and volume is fab. Click to pause or skip a song and can take calls thru them too. Mighty impressed and this price is a steal
Thats always going to go cold here - But i agree that is a bargain! my S3 was near that price. If its good enough for Cav then !!!! Just wish i had the money or was allowed to buy it.
For that price, I'd want a motor hidden in the bottom bracket and a lifetime supply of TUE's/performance enhancing drugs ;)
Does it come with pedals?
Sick machine? Does it need machine medicine? Not sure I'd pay that much for a bike, let alone a poorly one! (lol)
Blimey I’d want a house for that price! (skeptical)
I bought it as well, I'm too curious and must compare them now.
Tested for almost 2 years now,my other usb lights have broken due to cell failures but this cheap one keeps going,also has an excellent flash slow/fast pattern alternating between the leds highly noticeable. And no i would not trust my life on single rear light the £2.50 light is now my main light with another as back up.
when you trust your life this £2.5 not tested light that's ok for me :-) I prefer a solid rear light and Flare R is hard to beat. that's the best price I could find. People that are after Flare R will appreciate this deal.
Always good to have a bright rear light but is this good value, i use THIS £2.50 with 2 rechargeable aaa batteries,it has the same brightness with 2 leds and similar optics for a wide beam pattern.
This has to be a joke or bad trolling surely...
Best price I can see is £329.99 at Wiggle but they only have it at that price with 170mm cranks and a 50x34 chainset (11-32 cassette). Alternatively it's £344.99 at CRC which could be reduced to £310.49 if you are a British Cycling member (possible 2% TopCashBack as well).
Hope this is appropriate, but If anyone is upgrading the groupset to 11 speed, I might be interested in picking up some Tiagra bits.
So I have a 105 equipped 2012 version of this bike... It's done 30,000k and has need absolutely brilliant ... It had a couple of sets of wheels but given the terrible Kent roads I commute on that's to be expected .... I'm seriously tempted by a new one although I don't need it
worth the money but in my opinion not very nice styling and the forward areas of the straps protrude from the helmet, buy it try it on though, you can always send it back.
whats everyones thoughts on these helmets? Worth the money?
ordered thanks x
Dammit! those helmets arrived in white and the cannondale green and boy are they ugly, seem to have the front straps elevated from the helmet so not sticking to the contours of your face, also not very aerodynamic more of a colander on the head look! but that's just my opinion. I will be sticking with giro or specialized in future. meantime these are gonna be returned. bar tape is spot on though, cannot disagree with 1.99 per roll from 6 pounds original price!
The Trek or the Cannondale link above are good bikes. There is also the Saracen Tenet 3 for £400, this comes with better Tiagra gears and a full carbon fork, the Trek and Cannondale have almost certainly better frames, but come with Sora gears, one below Tiagra. None of them are bad, all are good value compared to their normal price. Up to you with regard to fit.
I'm not a bike enthusiast. But to someone with decent knowledge: Is this a good all round road bike? Or can I get better value for this £400-500 price range? Only owned a hybrid until now, a relatively cheap £130 Apollo bike.
They now have 58cm available.
If you need something similar in 54, 56, 58cm. http://startcycles.co.uk/bikes/road-bikes/cannondale-2015-synapse-alloy-sora-road-bike-bycdm5sysals.html
You are lucky to get the Trek 1.1 with Claris for this money, this is normally £500+.
Ok tks; may look out for a pair. I did buy a crane performance pair but although they were a good price they were a small medium and so had to sell them before actually using.
The primary advantage is that bib shorts cannot fall or ride down. They stay in place. A disadvantage is they can pull themselves right up your crack if you wear a size too small ;) I used padded shorts for MTB all the time and found them absolutely fine. However after using bib shorts I will not go back. I've got myself some really good endurance road bib shorts (B'Twin Aerofit and Madison Genesis team shorts) and found I can stay in the saddle far longer than I could with my first pair which were a Karimor padded short I picked up at Sports Direct. Disadvantage, can be awkward when you need a pee.
So beyond aero and no flapping fabric would you say there is no advantage over ordinary padded shorts? Genuine question; I have a 100m ride to do this year and use just padded cycling shorts right now.
All sizes in stock again but price now £25 inc delivery.
Anyone know about sizing on these? I'm XL in Scott bibs
Thanks, ordered. Been looking at these for a while. Meant to be good for aching palms from mountain biking. Fingers crossed!
Thanks for posting. I’ve added the price and merchant to the title. Here’s a ‘Help’ link which gives tips and advice on thread posting.
boo no medium left :(
I've asked others! I've used merino tops for years and the stuff really is pretty amazing. It really doesn't start stinking like man-made materials, and far less than other natural fibres, is warm in the cold and cool in heat, etc. I guess if you haven't tried it then you wouldn't understand/believe it's benefits.
Can use for days without smelling? I think other people should be the judge of that
Ok great thanks
Yes - I'd say large for you. I'm 5'11" (slim also) and the medium fits perfectly. The lycra allows a bit of stretch so don't need to get the exact size. This grade of merino is very soft so certainly no itch next to the skin and there is no zip rub (a little 'harbour' on the collar).
2.8 ,not 2.4 :rolleyes:
Sora triple will be fine. gives you an extra 'granny gear' for really steep hills, so you can just spin up them easily.
Back when Cannondale were young I got given a r600 2.4 frame bike with 105 gear, 120£ Few years before the frame went for 750 quid alone
looks good, not sure if SORA TRIPLE any good
Bike folk, is this any good GT GTS Sport 2014 Bike £349 ? Appreciate any opinions
good price heat added
