TCB @ 4.04%.
Only red small and medium left. Shame for me!
Thank you OP - they'll keep for when it's warmer. :)
Well, many people know about Superdry, North Face, Regatta, etc. I doubt if a lot of people in this forum have heard about Altura. It is not uncommon to get a jacket for a fiver in the clearance offer ....
Come on ,who would think its an altura jacket for a fiver. Also altura evo jackets come without hoods so this is a good deal for those that need the hood attachment which I have just purchased. Thanks for posting OP and have some heat
WARNING THIS IS JUST HOOD, NOT JACKET. THIS SHOULD BE MADE CLEAR IN THE TITLE AND DESCRIPTION who would want to buy a hood ????? MISLEADING - MISLEADING - MISLEADING - FREEZING COLD TO ABSOLUTE TEMPERATURE
+1 for changing the misleading pic
I got excited thinking it was £5 for a jacket and then realised it was just the hood. More accurate photo might be [img]http://www.fawkes-cycles.co.uk/images/nightvisionevohood.jpg?width=222&height=222&format=jpg&quality=70&bgcolor=fff[/img]
Mine have just turned up & they're excellent for a fiver, great fit. Would have been nice to have some pull off loops but hey ho
Have some of these, really don't like the velcro fastener. Decathlon do some for not much more inc delivery which are a lot more comfortable imo: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/500-cycling-gloves-orange-id_8307689.html
XL. You know what they say, big hands - big gloves
Just what I needed. Thanks OP!

I have had XL in Altura stuff before so ordered this size which is way too big on me. I have ordered a large and medium to see which fits best and use free returns for unsuitable size. I guess the sizing is because it mentions trail riders who tend to wear looser fitting clothes than us road bikers and when I read the description tab it says it's baggy..
Anyone know what there sizes are like ???
Anyone know what there sizes are like ???
is this not just a polyester v neck t shirt and nothing more ?
Really like the Jersey the guy going downhill wears on the Jersey page....can't seem to find it, anyone happen to know what it is? It's wine and black with one sleeve grey....kind of reminds me of an endura hummvee top but I don't think it is. I don't really like pack pockets anyway...trusty rucksack :)
Had a few Epic rides after a bottle or two of White lightning
Hope the weather at the weekend will be better then you can get the bike out and see how far you get!
It's been a while since I had an epic ride.........
"Epic Ride - Light Lube". Chortle Chortle......... oO
Better tasting variant of the old alcoholic classic.
u are part right. everyone i know who works for various companies from council to royal mail and even myself have had these from different chemes and all have paid 50-60% of the bikes value and at the end u pay a release payment £500 bike is about £30 and for me 2 i paid £313 including fee for a £500 that was reduced from £600. how the contract is worded is no how the deal pans out,its just a loophole. i paid £3.89 a week and then a release of £30 ish ,some shops do not allow u to buy discounted bikes but many do. also the final fee u pay is actually for a further 3 years extended rental and after that you can keep it. When the Hire Agreement and salary sacrifice ends, you can keep your Cyclescheme Package by making a final payment. It's a small amount, however. For a Cyclescheme package under £500, you'll pay 3% of the original value; for a package over £500, it's 7% – so a maximum of £70 on a £1,000 package. The bike remains ‘hired’ for a further 36 months, but with no more monthly payments. Ownership can then officially transferred to you at no extra cost. The transfer of ownership payment is why you save a minimum of 25% rather than a minimum of 32%. Many Cyclescheme participants will save more. u dont pay 25% of the value,you save that as a minimum.
Up to *
My employer waives the final fee, and it then becomes a benefit-in-kind, so we then pay tax/NI on it. So, when my last three year scheme finished earlier in the year, I had to pay tax and NI on £70, and the bike is now mine. **edit** just looked at the link you posted, and as my employer only allows us to get a new bike every three years, the £70 is 12% of the £600 voucher I got three years ago.
It's still very good for basic rate tax payers, it equates to a saving of 32% ( income tax & NI).
I owned an onguard lock and was very happy with it, the 5 keys is usefull too! If you are insuring your bike, check the category of lock required with your cover, I know my last onguard wasn't compliant so it sadly went.
Well, you can get the thicker shackle Brute version for £21 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnum-ONGUARD-Bicycle-Security-LK8001/dp/B00AWAJYF0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422225598&sr=8-1&keywords=onguard+brute I think they're both still sold secure gold rated, for what that's worth - but obviously not the cable.
not sure if i would trust my bike wirh this
Often cheaper than this
Good lock. I just leave mine on the bike rack at work as it's quite heavy and carry a light lock fit occasional use.
Took my money but I had to chase them up and they tell me there is no stock. Very poor service
Out of Stock
I think you will loose water resistance once washed.
Small now sold out. Looks great, would watch my white bike ;)
From the blurb: Extremely lightweight and packable, this emergency jacket can save your ride - and your hide - in sudden downpours or unpredictable weather. Ultra-lightweight woven polyester has a durable, water-resistant finish Strategically placed stretch mesh panels increase breathability Reflective trim on lower back for visibility Open waist construction allows air flow with less billowing Form fit sizing So, it's water resistant. Ordered, thanks OP!
Do these fit all? I'm size 10 but it only says SML for size
thanks but they have same size selections as wheelies only size 3-5 uk (s) or 12+ uk (xl) on some and just 12 + on others looking for medium or large
Some more SealSkinz on offer here, hope you find something suitable :) Link is for a pair of mid-calf socks, there are others available at the bottom. http://www.evanscycles.com/products/sealskinz/thin-mid-length-sock-ec030439?country=GB&currency=GBP&gclid=CNH4yoif0cACFQrjwgodhGcAdg&gclsrc=aw.ds
only xl large sizes 12+ would have bought some if their was any at my size
Sealskinz are fantastic I've got two pairs :)
Looks like a poor design http://m.rei.com/product/807255/cateye-tl-ld-570-reflex-auto-rear-bike-light
Perhaps you need two of these.
God the nights are drawing in. I will be lit up like a Christmas tree and their will still be near misses from idiot drivers who didn't see me...
If everyone moved to crime free places, those places would become crime ridden and the places they left crime-free.
Mine just turned up but no cable? EDIT: They sent the wrong item, got this instead: http://www.wheelies.co.uk/p59958/Onguard-Pitbull-LS-U-Lock---Gold-Sold-Secure-Rating.aspx
So you live in the **** end of scotland, who cares? The vast majority of people use bikes for things like commuting to work or popping to the shops, the exact sort of places bikes are more likely to get nicked. Regardless, I've ordered this for the lads new bike.
No no, I'll not be disclosing my whereabouts on here, but I will say that I live 85 miles away from the nearest cinema/supermarket/clothes or shoe shops etc. I removed myself from all conveniences and at the same time, all the nasties in life. Where I live is crime free, in fact it just made the local newspaper that somebody had snapped the aerial off a parked car and police were looking for information. :)
Why not just put this to rest and post a rough location (even if it's just the coordinates for the nearest Spar) - I'd be ever so interested to hear about this haven of the North - I'm pretty sure the media would, too!
The forks and wheels are not brilliant quality. They spent a lot getting those lovely welds on the frame, which is probably quite nice, and the gears are perfectly adequate, but the wheels are probably quite heavy and the fork would be best replaced with a rigid one (£20 off eBay.) That said, it's a great bike from a great brand for the money. For commuting, save £60 and get a Revolution Courier Race '13 (I posted it earlier but can't add links in comments), which is lighter and faster but not so capable offroad.

Cannondale are normally great bikes. what's specifically wrong with this one?
I have this exact bike for 12 months. Bought it when it came out for £349. Would say it is not worth the money as you can get some better deals. CANNONDALE are a brand that thinks it is great but really you are better off with Giant or Specialised or something similar for a better price. Wheelies are just trying to get rid of old stock and make it look like a good deal. All 2013 model bikes will eventually be reduced and for a better price.
Looks like it's just a BSO with a Cannondale badge. You can do a lot better for £329, having seen past deals posted on here for bikes.
Great deal for the money. The frame will be decent and the components although basic will be enough. No need to buy a BSO when you can get a decent bike for £200. Good spot OP.
Sorry, added now.
put retailer in title please
The medium sized one should be good for you .
I'm only 5ft 6" so guess this will be too big!
Nice, but I think I would prefer this Linky Link
Your welcome. Aldi had some tool kits in but were pretty poor compared to these.
Great deal, just bought it. Cheers!!!!
god starter kit
£24.99 is about right for this quality. I wouldn't pay anything near £65 for it.
Looks a lot like the set I bought from Lidl last year for ? the same price. That is a good set :)
Always ride with a backpack on! What else would you carry your beer in?!
You going to carry it in your jersey pocket ?
Yup. I was responding to the OP who said he was a guy.
That's probably why they've been advertised as 'women's' gloves then.
I wouldn't have thought these would be a great fit for a man. A man's ring finger is longer than their index finger, and this is reversed for women. That might not make a huge difference though, so if you feel it's worth a punt, go for it.
Brilliant price for an excellent set of cycling gloves. Many thanks.
I've got the 2012 model, it's got 14mm rear axle and 10mm front axle. Decent heavy duty 3 piece cranks. I am 6'5" and 19 stone and it's spot on for me, manuals we'll, and jumps nice too.
Thanks for your enquiry. Do you mean, how much weight the bike can take from the rider? In that sense, It's a steel frame and fork BMX so it's pretty durable by all accounts. Diamondback don't issue a 'max weight' allowance but i guess anything up to 18 stone (ish) should be okay. Kind Regards, Nick
10mm axles = cheap;
id love one of these, i'm 37 yeas old and 6ft , do you think i'll look a bit big for it....
Great price, nice find OP
no, not whatever halfwit,its used not new,doesn't include delivery or interest free payments.
yeah whatever :D
Wow yeh thats a very good deal :)
like 2nd hand.
Like new :P
yes that's precisely why there is no men's version
what this for? washing up?

£8 for 5 screwdrivers, where is the deal?
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/draper-diy-series-45-piece-screwdriver-pliers-set-9-00-click-collect-asda-1418731 These are a great wee set
Your back sweats a lot when wearing a rucksack on a bike. I much prefer carriers and pannier bags.
Keep toying with the idea of getting one of these rather than a back pack, but they do make your bike look a bit naff, don't they?
Vote hot, but I don't need Zero Energy. I've already got that. Time for a nap, methinks
a decent deal along with a free bottle. i occasionally buy these sort of deals if the kids need a new sports bottle. personally, when im on a decent ride i just put some dilute in my bottle/camelback, a bag of jelly babies and a snickers.
long haul durability without the excessive grime build-up... nice!
Hot, I've just run out of durex play, this'll do the job nicely.
Thanks bigflump -; I didn't know how to (as you probably guessed)
Thanks for posting, I've added a pic to your deal :)
Not to be confused with the teenage drink of choice
Pretty cool, smaller than I thought they'd be but they seem well made. Happy enough, just wish I had two sets. X) Sent them an email anyway so hopefully they'll post the other set out.
Sorry to hear that. What are the lights like?
My package came this morning and they've only posted out one set, not the two I ordered. First order from Wheelies and I suspect it may be the last.
I can't get the lights off of my old bike due to the screws seizing, so the silicone design of these is a real draw. I cycle on well lit roads, for the most part, so these are enough to keep me safe
Been using these lights for a while now. Really pleased with them.
Can't see why this is so cold... It's a good price for a 1/2 sensible commuter light, have some heat op (not that it'll make any difference now!)
edinburgh bike co op available instore or for delivery but £20 min spend for delivery
Do you have a link for a USB Rechargeable Front LED Light?
if you're after a bike light get one from dealextreme for half the price + 20 times the power
Way to hark back to 2012.
Calm down guys
It's a bigger size. Only difference is the brakes really.
That's a far cheaper model of the same bike without disc brakes, only 50 quid off to which is hardly a bargain :\
Alternate deal HERE Only in 23' xxl though.
if you are from northern ireland then you will have to £22.50 for the postage alone. boo!
Amazon, got in just before they changed the prices and realised that they must have &&&& up [img]http://charts.camelcamelcamel.com/uk/B003Y3LWXY/amazon.png?force=1&zero=0&w=725&h=440&desired=false&legend=1&ilt=1&tp=all&fo=0[/img]
bargain, where was that?
oops so it is so many High5 deals of late got confused. I picked up the multipacks of 8 tubes of 20 tablets for £6 the other day, bought 2 boxes of every flavour will last me and the partner for ages
That's not for the same thing though, this comes with 10 zero tabs, that comes with 4 energy gels
