Sales

by Cyclist   February 14, 2014  

Is just me? Or have the sales been simply bloody brilliant?

I have dumped at least a months salary since Boxing Day on kit! I totalled rrp and I have gotten over double my monies worth.

Anyone else gone a bit nuts?

Methinks it's just you! Only kidding, but in all honesty, you dont normally pay rrp anyway do you? If so shop around more. Anyway enjoy all the new toys. What is your best bargain, cyclist?

I've spent a couple of hundred quid with Planet X on the last of the Campag winter jerseys (now stockpiled in a wardrobe).

I've also spent hours emailing and phoning them to find out where my stuff was or to get it sent to the address that I had input to the delivery screen.

The latest fun was when I got a pair of their echostorm winter tights - which are excellent value - except that my Large version had legs in large but everything from the shammy up in 2XL. Very bizarre.

My eyes prefer Celeste, my bum prefers titanium.

I think there were better deals through the year than recently, such as

Fizik shoes at 75 percent discount at merlin
Mavic plasma helmets for 50 quid
The original rounds of campag clothing sell offs, in May the stuff was half the price it is now, it's still discounted, but it's getting rarer.

Though right now, groupset deals seem pretty good

I keep an eye out all year and stock pile, all I've bought recently are some tools, chains and gels.

All Campag

Also picked up the Campag winter bib tights from planet x, for £30 - they're great! Never had grey tights before, though.

And Evans did me some Bontrager shoes, carbon sole, buckle closure etc, also for £30, a bit longer ago now. Deals in the middle of 2013 seemed pretty good.

Lol.. Agreed I never pay full whack for anything, but I did think I got Some stuff better than I have seen before.

After looking at my stuff I think in particular these standout to me.

Castelli Velocissimo Bib Short Size M @£50 50% off
Castelli Velocissimo team ss jersey M @£39.99 rrp £70
Castelli LS gabba £99.99 rrp £185 got this in a flash email 12hr sale only.
Shimano Ultegra 6800 SPD-SL Pedals £64.99 with pp

I bought loads more stuff but these stand out as above the average savings that can be found. And I can say the gabba has already paid for itself a 100 times over with the current weather...!
