Truvativ FireX 3.0 9 Speed MTB Chainset (was £139.99) £29.99 @ on-one.co.uk

Found 13th May 2015
Reduced from £139.99 to £29.99, this is a very cheap 9 speed chainset for mountain biking. Normally the chain rings alone go for more than this - a bargain if you're building up a bike, or if your old chain rings are worn and need replacing. Should fit most 9 speed bikes - It won't fit 7 or 8 speed bikes, as the chain rings will be too narrow for the chain.

Think delivery will be around £3.95, unless you make the order up to £50. There's also some cheap Geax MTB tyres on there which will help. Hope I've posted this right, this is my first deal - if I've made any mistakes please let me know. I wasn't sure which category to put this under so chose "Other". Also I'm not sure on the etiquette here, if I need to give credit as to where I saw the deal? If we do, I found it on the Singletrackworld mountain bike website forum, from a user who said they found it on the @cyclebargains twitter account. Not sure where they came across the deal. Anyway hope this helps someone save some pennies - and sorry if I've made any mistakes here - please let me know and I'll edit this text as necessary?

Thanks

hmmm... can you post the correct link the present link gos "404"

Expired, I have purchased the last one. Thanks OP

think they have all sold out as i picked up the last one

thanks for the headsup on the tyres too , yeah I use the Tattoo on my "road" MTB and they roll quite well at the higher 70psi.
I also use the Geax Lobo Loco Mas folding tyre on my Zoo trials bike ,deep knobblies / high air volume / folding properties make this tyre very good for trials . It's a large tyre so some bikes may have clearance problems at the yoke
good price at 9.99 haven't been this price for months , even with planet X's discount a few months ago when I got both types of tyre 12£ was a bargain

Ahhh..
just wondering what were the triple chainring tooth ratios?

wow awesome price gutted I missed this voting hot anyway

Not as good on discount % or final price, however, I have personally had more luck with Shimano gear over the years;

Also, the following sentence isn't true;

"Should fit most 9 speed bikes - It won't fit 7 or 8 speed bikes, as the chain rings will be too narrow for the chain."

A 9 speed chain won't work on 7 or 8 speed setups...but a 7/8 speed chain will work on a 9 speed setup.
I say this having upgraded my 24 speed Marin Muirwoods with that Deore 9 speed chainset. Chain pickup is v.smooth - certainly better than on my previous 8 speed (Truvativ) chainrings.

Hey thanks for getting back ,
this ratio wouldn't have been for me despite the good price on the triple setup
I'm not usually fussed about the middle and granny rings
but as I like to ride my MTB like a boss I always have a 48T on the big ring( the extra 4 teeth compared to the 44T makes for all the speed). I could go 50T but then the ratio's get awkward for the derailleur not to mention the cost of a 50T ring on it's own.
Woollyhat shop in Biggin hill do rings and other bits quite cheap
anyway thanks again
