"OK, I don't know if this is the right place for this thread, I'm sure that if it isn't, the powers that be will kindly put it where it should be.
Unlike all the tat that's going to be slashed by 95% in nine weeks time (yes, Christmas really IS that close!), as the weather changes and the autumn rushes in, bike gear retailers are holding their sales now. I've had emails from some of the online bike gear stores that I've used this year (and found to be good operators). SportsBikeShop.co.uk
are having a clearance. Lots of nice shiny new things for all!
and TopGear Superstore
have emailed me a discount code for 15% off valid until 7th November. Enter 'TG15' at the checkout page. Be warned, though, that I'm not sure whether this will work for everyone or whether you need to be an existing customer.
So, it seems that you don't have to wait until after Christmas to get your favourite bikin' buddy something nice without breaking the bank!
