We're all bargained out! Anna and Liam are signing off from the road.cc live deals blog, that started on the eve of Black Friday, continued over the weekend and then morphed into a Cyber Monday live blog this morning. If you've spotted any stunning cycling deals yourself then feel free to post 'em below in the comments as always, and do have a look right through all of the posts here if you're bargain-hunting, as the majority of the deals are still live/have got even better since we first posted them. You can also check out our Dealclincher website for more super cycling-related deals on the tinterweb.
See ya next year!
Not found what you’re looking for on a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal? Well, Tredz has a whole load of ‘spend and save’ codes you can use to get up to £300 off pretty much anything you like on its site, except for some bikes*. You have plenty of choice across clothing, accessories, components, turbos and hybrid & electric urban bikes.
Seems like a good opportunity to grab some consumable components that'll wear out and will probably need replacing some point soon; tyres, sealant, brake pads, chains, inner tubes, that sort of thing.
* The codes can only be used for hybrid and electric urban bikes, so no road bikes. Specialized and Cube bikes are also excluded, but that’s it, go wild...
Orro has knocked £1,000 off the price of its size medium Gold STC Chorus endurance bike in the red colourway - the frame of this model has been engineered with Spread Tow carbon from specialists Sigmatex for its ride dampening qualities and, consequently, comfort. “This exquisite carbon fabric uses unidirectional spread tow tapes, allowing for a much larger number of fibres in a smaller space,” says the brand.
Assembled by hand in the UK, Orro’s flagship Gold STC model is equipped with Campagnolo’s 12-speed Chorus groupset which features Ergopower controls offering comfortable support mile after mile with its exclusive Vari-cushion technology.
Fulcrum’s R500 DB wheels, Deda Zero 1 bars and Continental’s 28mm wide Grand Sport Race tyres are also specced.
Kitting yourself out in suitable gear for keeping happy on cold winter rides doesn’t always have to be expensive, grab this brilliant discount on Altura’s Nightvision 5 waterproof long-cuffed gloves (was £39.99, now £19.99) that provide wind and water protection.
Touchscreen compatible fingers allow you to take selfies on your smartphone even in the chilliest of conditions and the reflective print will help you be seen.
As well as discounting the Kickr Core smart trainer to its lowest price ever (£629.99), Wahoo is giving a free one-year subscription to its SYSTM Training App when you buy one of its trainers so you have sessions and training plans to follow on your shiny new indoor machine.
Wahoo’s SYSTM app was released earlier this year and it’s the new home of The Sufferfest. It has a pretty stacked library of new immersive content categories including ‘On Location’, ‘ProRides’ and ‘Inspiration’ workouts, and all these can be compiled into specific training plans for working towards targets, whatever that may be.
Pedal-based power meters offer a lot more flexibility than crank-based systems, but you do have to expect to pay a higher price - but just £413.40 for dual sided pedal-based power is pretty amazing.
Getting Garmin’s Rally power meter dual sided pedals with £140.50 of savings this weekend seemed like a very decent deal, and it is if you want to invest in Garmin’s ecosystem that allows for road and off-road compatibility.
But if you’re looking for the best value power meter pedals Favero’s Assioma dual and single sided options are being sold at an incredibly low price right now.
The Assioma Duo dual sided option was €569,00 (~£481.04) and now is €489,00 (~£413.40) - that’s half the price of the current discounted price of Garmin’s Rally RS200 model which is being sold at £829.49.
Favero’s single sided UNO is also on a similarly great discount; previously €364 (£307.93), now €299 (£252.78).
Ok, I've said that X deal is the best of Black Friday before, but this one is taking the crown for me.
It's got absolutely nothing to do with cycling, but after this weekend, I think a beer is in order. The Belgian Beer Company has 10% off this case of mixed German beers and you also get a fancy glass to drink them from.
If German beers aren't your thing, they also stock tasty tipples from Belgium, America, France, Czech Republic, Holland and pretty much anywhere else where they make beer.
Is it too early? It's five o'clock somewhere...
Wahoo is another brand getting a last-minute deal in for Cyber Monday. They’ve got 10% off the Kickr Core
This smart turbo trainer is ideal for spending the winter hiding from the worst of the weather. It replicates gradients of up to 16%, has a power meter accuracy of +/-2%, a maximum resistance of 1,800W and is ready to use with most road and mountain bikes.
Plus, Wahoo offers an option to fit an 11-speed cassette for £39.99. Firstly, that’ll save you finding one that is actually in stock and buying it but it’ll also save you the hassle of fitting it which, if you haven’t got the tools, would be an additional cost.
TrainingPeaks is a very effective, customisable analysis tool for planning and building workouts as well as doing some serious in-depth nerding about your fitness. The fitness, fatigue and form graphs seem realistic and peak performances can be checked at a glance - read Jamie’s full review of the training tool here.
Usually the annual subscription is $119.00 USD (~£89.20), but now it’s on a 25% discount and will cost ya $89.25 USD (£66.90).
BEWARE, this deal is not the best for everyone. If you are a Gold British Cycling member you’re already eligible for a 40% discount, however for all other levels of British Cycling memberships this Cyber Monday deal is better than the 20% discount you can get.
Science in Sport have been busy over the Black Friday weekend and they’re finishing with a flourish by offering an extra 10% off when you use the code CYBER.
As we write this, you’ve got 13 hours to make use of this offer.
Cycle clothing brand Le Col is offering 40% off a huge range of their cycle and casual wear with an EXTRA 35% off on top of that.
After the frigid temperatures of the weekend, I’m very tempted by one of their winter long sleeve base layers which are down to just £31.85.
Sticking with that theme, the Pro Long Sleeve Jersey is £65.81 and if you layer the Pro Wind Jacket (£73.13) over the top, you’ll be as snug as a cyclist that is dressed appropriately for the conditions. Catchy.
With 30% off everything, there's a solution here for everyone who is looking to mount a smartphone to their bike.
Quad Lock sells a range of kits for mounting your phone like a dedicated GPS unit with the minimum of fuss - just twist and lock. You have the choice between kits that mount your device on your stem or out front - there’s also a lower profile out front option too.
Featuring a patented dual-stage lock, you can ride with confidence over rough roads and you can easily detach to snap that beautiful view or take an important phone call.
For other devices Quad Lock also has its Universal Fit kit that works by sticking a strong 3M VHB adhesive onto the rear of a smartphone or case.
You can currently save EVEN MORE on Garmin’s Rally power meter pedals. Among Saturday’s Black Friday deals ProBikeKit were selling the dual-sided RS200 model (RRP £969.99) with a £119 saving and it just got better, how does £140.50 off sound?
‘RS’ stands for Shimano road style cleats, while ‘200’ means it is measuring power for both legs.
Garmin’s power meter pedals offer accurate and consistent data, while also proving to be weather resistant. The Rallys also have the ability to transfer its power-reading spindle from road to off-road pedals, for accurate data across disciplines - you’ll have to also buy the conversion kit for that, but it’s a great system to invest in, so do it now while it’s cheap!
If you’re keen to buy into the Rally system but the dual model is still above your current budget, the single sided model is also on sale (save £71), and you can always upgrade to dual later on.
Save 50% on Oakley’s Radar EV Pitch sunglasses which have a taller lens for increased peripheral vision and the brand’s excellent colour-enhancing Prizm black lenses (11% light transmission) suited to bright summer conditions - these are interchangeable too.
So, we're not jealous of you being able to go for a sunny bike ride this morning while we try to find you the best cycling deals. I said we're not jealous, ok.
But we can imagine that there are a fair few frozen toes that are being slowly brought back to life after what must have been a cold one. Time to nip that in the bud before winter really hits.
Spatz overshoes are brilliant for the hardy cyclist. They work on and off-road and they keep your feet properly warm. Yes, they're an investment and yes, they look a bit odd, but I'd swap that for a winter of non-frozen toes any day.
There's no discount on the overshoes, but you can get free worldwide shipping and there is a free pair of socks to be had if you spend £100 or more.
Warm, windproof and very comfortable, these full-finger gloves are a very good option for the cold weather, so grab ‘em while they’re on offer and your fingers will be thankful on winter rides to come!
The cuffs are plenty long enough for tucking your jersey sleeves inside to avoid getting cold wrists and the palms are covered in silicone print so they grip even damp hoods and bar tape. A small amount of gel padding is also included on the heel of your hand to protect the ulnar nerve.
French cycling apparel brand has a massive 50% discount running across a whole load of men’s and women’s jerseys, bibs, gilets, jackets and caps, as well as 20% off all products on the site with the exception of the Atelier line.
Ultralight Christelle open mesh jerseys for the hottest summer conditions now start at £67.50 for the white, blue or lemonade version and £72.50 for a subdued olive aesthetic. Then you’ve got Marina jerseys made of naturally breathable, high wicking and odour resistant merino wool priced at £71.
Cafe du Cycliste’s premium Marinette navy bib shorts with laser cut grippers and a top of the range Cytech pad are now just £95.50 - both men's and women's versions are available.
Ooooo this is a good one. Castelli's Perfetto is an exception winter jersey/jacket. It is good at keeping light to moderate rain off you, it is warm and it is breathable too.
This thing excels when you head into the hills as you aren't left overly sweaty after slogging your way to the top. That then means that you won't freeze on the way back down and we'd say that is quite a good thing.
Merlin Cycles has a range of colours and sizes down at £157 and at this price, we don't think they'll stick around for long.
Tyre pressure nerd, rejoyce! This Topeak pressure gauge can go with you in your pocket, allowing you to keep an eye on those tyre pressures while you're out on a ride.
We're only half-joking here. If you're riding off-road and trying to perfect your setup for a certain set of conditions then tyre pressure is massively important. Knowing exactly what your tyre pressure is, and then keeping a record of it in the notes app on your phone is a great way to keep a log.
If you’re determined to ride through the winter whatever the weather, prevent road spray flicking up by fitting some mudguards - it’ll make it a lot more pleasant a experience, for both you and any mates you’re cycling with.
SKS has its full-length Chromoplastics road mudguards on sale - these are a highly regarded sturdy option!
Stainless steel stays fix them in place and the Secu-Clips on the front means they pop out of the mount if something gets caught between the mudguard and tyre.
The narrower option (was £45.99, now £29.99) fits 20 to 28mm tyres, while the wider version (was £45.99, now £27.99) is for those rolling on 28 to 38mm rubbers.
An eBike is a brilliant investment if you're looking to use your car a bit less. Carrying heavy loads, such as a few bags of shopping, up the hill to home is made far easier and while we all like to think that we could manage just fine with a normal bike, we're far more likely to grab the bike if it is quick and convenient.
The Crossfire has mounts for full-length guards and a pannier rack. It has a 417Wh battery and the motor delivers 60Nm of torque.
Affordable accessories and components just got even cheaper...
For under £50 you can get yourself LifeLine’s padded bike bag with a shoulder strap for transporting your bike to sunnier locations. Previously £89.99 and now £44.99, it’s on a very decent 50% discount.
Eight separate internal zipped storage compartments are included for tidying away components and kit, while a separate tool roll allows you to safely store essential tools for re-assembly and pre-ride adjustments.
Grab yourself a direct drive smart trainer for less than £400! Yep, that’s right, LifeLine’s Xplova NOZA Smart Trainer is currently being sold at a 45% discount. Priced at just £379.99, it’s a very accessible option for pacing it around the virtual roads on Zwift without experiencing any issues with tyre slippage and wearing out your rubber as you do with wheel-on options- it also comes with a two-year manufacturers warranty.
It can simulate up to 18% inclines, gives you power accurate to +/-2.5% and can withstand you trashing the pedals at up to 2500 watts - you should be covered for your indoor needs.
Ever wanted to start truing your wheels yourself? Save 41% on LifeLine’s Pro Mechanic Wheel Truing Stand which uses a spring loaded caliper to prevent the guides from sticking to the wheel, and it can be adjusted by ergonomic knobs.
It can also be mounted in a bench vice or bolted down to a worktop surface with the brackets that are included.
Packed with 18 valuable tools, LifeLine’s Bike Tool Kit is a neat collection that can be easily organised and transported in its plastic carry case with protective internal foam - a useful option for the home mechanic and for those wanting a portable kit for weekends away with the bike.
Tools include a chain whip, pedal spanner 15mm box wrench with 14/15mm socket end, cassette tool, chain break tool with replacement pin, and more, well 14 more…
We just covered the highlights, there are loads more sweet LifeLine deals on tools and components over here.
Investing in a new set of wheels can make your bike feel faster, lighter and snappier, and this bike upgrade just got a whole lot cheaper. Looking for an aero wheelset? Get 35% off Fulcrum’s Wind 40 disc brake HG carbon hoops with a pair of Continental GP5000 tyres and inner tubes, that’s a whopping £434.95 saving.
Fulcrum’s Wind 40mm deep carbon-rimmed wheels feature a pronounced profile with a 8mm radius to blend with the tyre to reduce turbulence, and they weigh 1620g.
The unidirectional carbon fibre rim construction feature Fulcrum’s Mo-Mag technology which allows for a completely sealed spoke bed for better tubeless integration.
With a 19mm internal rim width these are suited for 25mm and 28mm tyres, and what’s even better, the 25mm Continental GP5000s all-round tyres are included in this deal.
Let’s start off the day with a huuuge discount on Muc-Off’s lube that’s designed to perform well in dry and damp conditions by creating a dry ceramic coating and repelling dust. Muc-Off’s big claim is that it offers ten times the performance of standard oils and lubricants.
Helpfully, you can always see where you have applied the lube thanks to the UV tracer dye.
Vel, the component and accessory brand available exclusively at Sigma Sports, has a front and rear light on sale for a total of £36
The 500 Lumen Front Light (was £40, now £24) is on a 40% discount right now, as is the brand’s 20 Lumen Rear Light (was £20, now £12).
Giving up to 500 lumens from a choice a six modes, this Vel front light also has an Auto mode which will adjust automatically according to the lighting conditions around you as well as a memory mode function ( it reverts back to the last used mode).
Depending on the mode selected, the rear option offers up to 20 hours of use, says Vel, and it takes just 2.5 hours to recharge from flat.
It’s not just turbo trainers that are on big discounts this Black Friday weekend, if you are looking for an indoor option you can share between the family, the Zwift-compatible Stages Smart Bike gives power readings accurate within +/-1%, produces left/right balance data and can withstand up to 3,000 watts.
Laser-etched scales for saddle height, reach, and stack allow you to always change between different rider’s setups, and it’s really adjustable too - the crank length even has four positions (165,170, 172.5 and 175mm).
Merlin Cycles has a collection of Kask road and MTB helmets on sale with big discounts to be found.
The Protone is one of Kask's best-selling models as it combines a supposedly aero shell with great ventilation. We just think it looks good.
We spied some Garmin Rally power meter pedals on sale…
The latest generation of Garmin’s power meter pedals provide reliable and consistent data with useful swappable pedal bodies for different road and off-road cleats - it’s a great system to invest in and right now it’s cheaper… woo!
Save £119 when buying the RS200 model - ‘RS’ stands for Shimano road style cleats, while ‘200’ means it is measuring power for both legs.
I think Freewheel has won Black Friday. They have a whopping great sale with loads of road, MTB and commuter clobber from the likes of Madison, HUMP, Pearl Izumi and more at up to 86% off.
These MTB shorts from HUMP are just a fiver. I've just ordered a pair.
The HUMP Strobe Women's Waterproof Jacket is down to a tenner. There is a decent selection of colours and sizes too.
This men's long sleeve thermal jersey from Madison (above) is down to £42.49. That's a bargain if ever I saw one.
Transmitting audio vibrations through your cheekbones you can get pumped while also remaining fully aware of your surroundings. IP55 certified, you don’t have to worry about using the headphones during intense sweaty indoor workouts or outdoors in grim weather conditions, and you can enjoy up to six hours of continuous music for steady-paced long winter miles.
If you’re after some new bibshorts, CHPT3 can offer you a pair that are lighter thanks to all of the vowels being removed.
The sale spans mens and women’s options and there is even a very smart-looking pair of MTB/off-road baggy shorts available.
One of the cheapest ways of getting single or dual-sided power readings is using a crankset rather than pedals - these 4iiii deals are an absolute steal for getting fitter by riding with power both indoors and out.
4iiii’s single sided 105 & Ultegra are on a 25% discount, while single sided and dual sided Dura-Ace options are 20% off.

Well, this one should greet you like a warm hug. Le Col has a brilliant sale of a selection of jackets which, let’s be honest, are looking very tempting this weekend!
What’s more, there is an extra 35% off with code EXTRA35 which gets automatically spplied at the checkout.
It brings the Pro Rain Jacket, pictured above, down from £250 to £117. That is a chonky saving.
Want to get rid of your old cycling computer and grab a shiny new one? Well, Hammerhead’s Trade In Trade Up recycling programme may be just the thing for you. The company is offering up to £125 off the purchase price of a new Karoo 2 for anyone who sends in their old cycling computer (pretty much whatever brand) to be recycled.
Trade in a Garmin Edge 500 for example and you’ll save £45, Wahoo’s Elemnt will be £80 off and the first iteration of Hammerhead’s Karoo (1) will get you that maximum £125 deal.
Given the Karoo 2 made it into our crème de la crème road.cc recommends selection - having really impressed with its navigation and training capabilities combined - this sounds like a rather good deal to us.
AND THERE’S MORE…
If you’d rather bling up your new Karoo 2, Wiggle has a different deal going on. For £349.99 (that’s a tenner off the full price of the cycle computer alone), you can get a cool-looking custom Bermuda or Moire Mode kit and a heart rate monitor included - taking into account the RRPs of all these items that’s a 23% total discount, £110 off.
The key to autumn and winter riding is effective layering; so be sure to check out Freewheel's current 40% off sale on a range of Pearl Izumi jackets and gilets for keeping cosy and dry on your top half - there’s both men’s and women’s options too.
Pearl Izumi’s Zephrr Barrier Jacket (was £99.99, now £59.99), for example, is a lightweight wind shell made from 100% recycled materials, that comes with a two-way zipper allowing ventilation from the top or bottom for year-round versatility. It’s been treated with PI Dry so it’ll protect you if you get caught out in light showers too.
The Monsoon WxB hooded waterproof jacket (was £149.99, now £89.99) made with a two-layer waterproof membrane for breathability, comes in a more relaxed fit, making it ideal for layering over what you’re already wearing when it’s chucking it down on your way home. Other features include dual front side vents with waterproof zippers and hook and loop sleeve adjustments.
There’s also deals on the Zephrr Barrier Gilet (was £89.99, now £53.99), Pro Barrier Lite Gilet (was £69.99, now £41.99), and more Pearl Izumi kit at Freewheel - click here to check them all out.
Do you need a bag that’s properly kitted out for commuting? Camelbak’s H.A.W.G. Commute backpack has a 30 litre capacity bag and is packed with a separate laptop compartment with a weatherproof sleeve, side pockets for bottles, a helmet carrier, light loop and 360 degree reflectivity, and much more. An adjustable Command Centre Harness is also included for securing at-hand essentials, keeping them organised for quick access on-the-fly.
Plus, to help save you from arriving all hot and sweaty, Camelbak has its Air Support Back Panel which it says promotes maximum ventilation and keeps air moving to the hottest zones of the back.
If you don’t need to carry so much, there's a 22L option (was £120, now £90) - and the 25% discount applies site-wide.
Looking to continue riding indoors this winter? Save £200 on Saris’ range-topping direct drive smart trainer, the H3 (was £750, now £200). It’s an excellent smart trainer - according to Dave who reviewed the model - that’s quieter and cheaper than its predecessor. Capable of producing 2,000W of resistance and simulating a gradient of up to 20% for riding on the virtual roads of platforms such as Zwift, as well as accurate to +/-2%, it’ll have you covered for your workout needs. Plus, the offer includes free 30 day trials of Zwift, Rouvy and Peaks Coaching Group
For those searching for a lighter, foldable unit, grab 30% off the Saris’ wheel-on trainer option, the M2 (was £499.99, now £345). Simulating gradients up to 15% and capable of withstanding up to 1500 watts of power, while being accurate to +/-5, it’s great for those with limited storage space who still want to pack some indoor miles in.
Looking forward to topping up your lycra tan lines next summer? Don’t be that person who ends up forking out on a bike travel bag at the same time as losing all your money to the flights and accommodation. Hands up, I’ve done just that.
Minimal disassembly and no tools are required when using Scicon’s AeroComfort 3.0 TSA Bike Travel Bag which is currently 40% off. All you need to do is remove the wheels of your bike, simples.
Do you commute? Having one of these stashed in your bag will ensure that the content of your bag won't get soaked when it is chucking it down for the ride home.
As a bonus, it can add visibility with the bright yellow colour and reflective strips.
How does 20% off Zipp’s 303 Firecrest Carbon Tubeless Disc Wheelset sound? Zipp’s 40mm deep wheels are more capable over varied terrain than before and are designed to be a versatile endurance wheelset for modern road bikes.
Boasting a 25mm wide internal width, Zipp says the rim profile provides low drag and an improved transition between rim and tyre, for aero efficiency benefits on the road.
Zipp’s more affordable carbon-fibre wheelset, the 303 S Carbon Tubeless Disc Brake wheels, are also on a 20% discount. Best suited for 28mm tyres, the 45mm deep hookless rim wheelset is designed for multiple types of road surfaces, including both asphalt and gravel.
At 55% off this next one is a sweet deal if you’re looking to kit out an endurance bike. The Racing 900s are Fulcrum’s disc brake option that’ll comfortably fit 25-28mm tyres, and with the brand’s 2-Way Fit system you can roll on either clinchers and tubeless. But you don’t have to worry about sourcing the other bits and bobs as in this bundle there’s also two 28mm wide Continental Grand Sport Clincher tyres and inner tubes included.
More Shimano deals. This means that Shimano is back in decent stock. Has the world fixed itself? Not yet.
Shimano’s pedal system is a much-loved design. They work quietly and hold your feet securely when you’re chasing those Strava KoMs. The release tension is adjustable and the pedals come with a set of cleats.
If you’re still unconvinced about tubeless and are sticking it out with clinchers, grab a pair of Continental’s popular GP5000 tyres in either 23mm or 25mm for £68.99 at ProBikeKit - that’s a decent £50.99 saving. Offering low rolling resistance, impressive grip and reliable puncture protection, these are certainly a fast all-round option.
The Oakley Radar EV might be a design that is a few years old now, but it is still one that I love. I’m yet to find a pair of sunnies that feel as secure on my head which is an important consideration when riding off-road.
The deal here gets you the trail lens along with a low light lens.
Yea, they’d be quite useful today.
Amazon has a great deal on Garmin’s Edge 530 that’s a useful unit packed full of features for both on and off road use including ClimbPro which shows the remaining ascent and grade when you’re climbing and Flow that measures how smoothly you ride a trail so you have a score to beat next time - read Rachael's thoughts on the off-road features over here.
The colour screen and range of integrations make it futureproof for all cycling disciplines, while it maps well and is great for navigating routes and finding secret trails.
The big bike brand is having a bit of a clearout over on their website and no, it doesn’t include any bikes. Boooo.
But there are some very nice savings to be made, so we’ve taken a look through and picked out our highlights.
£75 off S-Works Evade w/ ANGI
This aero helmet is well ventilated, looks good and is very comfortable. The only catch is that the discount only applies to this team red version and you’ll need to be a size small.
£30 off Torch 1.0 Road Shoes
Thankfully, the size and colour options are a bit better here with a choice between grey or lime. Looking for a comfy pair of cycling shoes, these are a well-priced option. Again, Sigma has a few more colours at £72.
£18 off Therminal arm warmer
Simple black arm warmers for £12. Not much else to say, really.
Merlin Cycles has what is - as far as we can see - the best price on Castelli's lovely Prologo Jacket.
This thing uses the GORE-TEX Infinium Windstopper X-Fast fabric to wrap you up snugly on those cold winter days. The cut is classic, so will be comfortable rather than race-fit.
There are some more colours and sizes over at Tredz, but the discount drops to 46%.
We’ve rummaged through the offers on Wiggle and picked out some highlights…
Kask’s excellent light and well-ventilated helmet with a fairly low profile, the Valegro (was £169, now £84.99), is on a 49% discount. The Valegro was developed in response to Team Sky's request for a lightweight lid with maximum cooling to sit alongside the more aero Protone in its armoury.
Gaerne’s mid-range Carbon G.Tornado road shoes with a Boa L6 closure system are being sold at half price (was £179.99, now £89.99). Gaerne has included its “all-new integrated anti slip heel-cup”, which it claims, “will not deform or weaken. With its anti-tendonitis form it allows for the best foot stability and control.”
If you’re looking for a base layer, dhb’s merino long sleeve option is a solid choice for cold winter rides. The versatile layer made it into our select road.cc recommends section; it's a great option for riding in the lowest temperatures, and its 100 per cent merino construction is a real luxury at this price point - plus, with Wiggle’s 33% discount it really is excellent value.
Boardman’s HYB 8.9 E (was £2,199, now £1979.10) and Carrera’s Cross City Folding Bike (was £999, now £899.10) are among the hybrid and folding e-bikes that are currently on sale with a 10% discount at Halfords.
Need to transport your bike, and family members’ bikes too, by car? Halfords also has deals on its Rear High 3 Bike Rack (was £89.99, now £55.99) and the Rear Low Mount 2 Bike Rack (was £79.99, now £55.99).
Factor, and its in-house components brand BlackInc, have a decent discount on the ViSTA all-road frameset and a range of wheelsets.
The ViSTA looks ideal for mixing fast road rides with some smoother gravel sections. There is space for 35mm tyres and hidden mudguard mounts too, so if you wanted a ridiculously fancy winter bike, here it is.
Factor is running the ViSTA discount on just the frameset, but that includes the integrated bar/stem You'll need code BLACKVISTA for that one. For the wheelset sale, use code BLACKTHIRTY
ProBikeKit has a flash Shimano sale going on for the next couple of hours. We’re just amazed to see some in-stock Shimano components. The Ultegra R8000 cassette can be had at £58.49 in the 11-28T ratio.
Cassettes, they actually have cassettes! Grab what you need while you can.
Indoor smart bike brand Wattbike is including a heart rate strap and floor mat with its Atom smart bike to help riders get fully set up with everything they need for winter training.
The Atom was updated with a much improved resistance unit for a better Zwift experience; it’s also easy to set up and adjust, and, most importantly, provides accurate power - it’s gonna set you back £1,999 so well worth giving Dave’s full review here a read.
Cycling indoors is often a sweaty and noisy affair, this is where the Wattbike floor mat is handy - made from 6P-free PVC which reduces noise, according to Wattbike, this allows users to train day or night as well as protecting the floor so that riders can set up in any room of the house.
You’ll also be getting Wattbike’s Heart Rate Strap which uses dual-mode wireless technology to connect to any Wattbike or smart device.
Brooks has a range of saddles that are designed for rides in all weathers and on all roads. The Cambium C17 saddle (- Black was £95, now £66.50), for example, is ready for commuting, gravel riding and cycle touring thanks to its flexible, vulcanised-rubber top. road.cc reviewer John really liked how Brooks combined its ‘hammock’ saddle design with modern materials, and he concluded that the saddle is supremely comfortable.
Bags wise, Brooks has its Scape range that are designed to be versatile and strong travel bags for adventurers. There are ten bikepacking and touring bags to cover your bike including the Frame Bag (was £85, now £59.50), which really impressed with its top quality waterproof construction, handy cable port on the interior tech pocket as well as plenty of pockets for separating items.

Sigma Sports has a properly packed Black Friday sale. We've had a nose through and picked out some highlights...
Shimano's brilliant RC7 road shoes can be had at up to 39% off. The best price is on the white version at £110 but you can go for the more sensible black version for just a fiver more. Double Boa dial closure, carbon sole, sleek design, these are packed with trickle-down tech.
You can bag £750 off the 2020 Specialized Turbo Levo SL Carbon Expert. It's a full-sus eMTB which means that you can have all the fun of the downhills without the effort of grinding your way back to the top. It isn't cheating, it's just fun.
If you've got an Ultegra R8000 chainset and you're after a single-sided power meter then you've got two great options. The 4iiii Precision is down to £279. I've got a couple of these and they haven't missed a beat.
Or, you can go for the InPeak Power Crank at the same price. Both use a CR2032 battery and both are dead easy to fit. If you want to get into the world of power data but don't want to spend a fortune, these are both good options.
That's just a little taster of the Sigma Sports sale. Click here to see the whole thing.
If you want to carry on cycling through the cold winter months, it pays to get properly wrapped up with some snugly bib tights, and Le Col has some great deals going on…
Both the men’s and women’s Hors Categorie Bib Tights now cost £114.40 (previously £220). If you’re looking for a more affordable option the Sport Bib Tights II slip in under the £100 mark at £83.20 (previously £160).
Wahoo's Kickr is one of the most popular indoor smart trainers thanks, in part, to the brands sponsorship of Team Sky, but also just because they're very good smart trainers.
Wahoo's UK site and Sigma Sports both have the Kickr at £899.99 so you can choose who to give your money to. If you choose Sigma Sports, you'll also get a free Vel trainer mat, so we'd suggest going that way.
Sigma have a really good Black Friday sale going as well, with up to 40% off a host of great kit. We'll be digging into that in a bit but for now, you can get to the sale here.
If you're looking to ditch the inner tubes, then you'll need a few things to make your wheel-tyre system airtight.
This Ultimate Tubeless Kit contains everything you need, with two pouches of sealant, two valves and tubeless tape. Muc-Off has designed each kit for a specific discipline, so you get the correct width tape for your wheels and the valve lengths will be right too.
The Tacx Neo 2 is one of our favourite of the latest smart trainers on the market. Dave really rather liked it and there's good reason for that.
The max power is 2200W, a max incline of 25%, max torque or 85Nm and a max brake force of 250N. It is very powerful and the power accuracy is very good too.
We're not really sure what makes this a special edition, but you can pretend that it is special.
It is once again everyone's favourite consumer event of the year. Well, that might be stretching it a bit, but Black Friday is generally a decent time to pick up a bit of a saving, especially if you've been looking to pick up a big-ticket item like a new bike, a smart trainer or a bit of new tech.
With that, Liam, Anna and Harry are here to spoon-feed you the best savings on everything cycling-related.

The deal on this Giulia Evo Disc caught our eye due to the sheer amount of tech that you’re getting for the special price of £2,699.
A carbon fibre frameset sits at the heart of the bike and this features aero tube shapes to help you cut through the wind efficiently.
The geometry is a great mix of sporty and comfortable which means that this bike is ideally suited for long and fast group rides, sportives and we’d say it’d be more than enough for the local road race.
Shimano’s Ultegra R8020 disc brake groupset provides the perfect mix of performance and affordability with the slick mechanical shifting combined with the powerful hydraulic disc brakes to create groupset perfection.
'tis the season that many riders quietly transfer their riding into the dry comfort of the garage, front room or spare bedroom.
Yep, it's time to get kitted out with a smart indoor trainer so that you can hide away from the rain. This one from Elite is perfect for getting set up and at this price, you won't break the bank.
If you're after a deal on a cycling computer or some wearable tech this Black Friday then this Garmin sale is worth a look.
Our pick would be the Edge 830 GPS computer at 20% off. It's got the majority of the features of the Edge 1030 Plus that we reviewed, just with a less silly price.
GoPro has slashed the price of its latest and greatest action camera bundle from £649.94 to just £379.98.
You'll need to buy a GoPro Subscription to get this price and that costs £49.99 for the year, but this does get you up to 50% off at GoPro.com to make additional batteries and accessories a bit cheaper. You get a few other benefits, but the main point is that you are getting the Hero10 Black for roughly the same money as the older Hero9 Black on Amazon.
The new Hero10 Black is meant to be rather brilliant when it isn't overheating, shooting a bonkers 5.3K resolution at 60fps. Just imagine how slick those close passes will look with this thing.
Science In Sport has up to 50% off their entire range of tasty energy and recovery products, allowing you to get stocked up for a long winter of cycling for less.
The Go Energy Gels are a very popular product and we love the Go Isotonic drink mix too. It's all kind on the stomach and tasty too.
There is also a free Blackout Bundle worth £24 with orders over £60
If you're looking for one of the best Black Friday sales then MyProtein could take the title. They've got 50% off across their site which includes loads of great nutrition products.
It's not all protein powders either. There are some great carb drink mixes, energy bars and gels too which would be ideal for fuelling those long winter miles that we've got to come. Just use code BLACK
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by.
