There are quite a few web sites available now which provide listings of Cycling Bargains etc.

We have such a site at https://cycling-bargains.co.uk

The site consists of a search facility with over 400,000 products (continually updated) from the main Cycling Stores. We have a daily PriceDrop feature which lists the products that are dropping in price. DiscountCode pages which lists all the available codes that can be used to further reduce the listed prices. And finally a selection of handpicked deals.

We have also just released a dedicated Mobile Phone App, we are not aware of anyone else who provides this. To Install the App just search for Cycling Bargains in the Apple, Android or Amazon App Stores. Or take a look at the video first @
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVo6GcdN49g&t=2s

We would love it it you gave us a try, any feedback or suggestions are welcome, just send us a private message on here.

Thanks
Cycling Bargains (Created by Cyclists for Cyclists)

Nice resource (will try the app shortly). Some genuine bargains there, looking back at what was posted over the last few weeks. The price drop feature is nice though it could be made prominent on the site itself.

New to the forum, was attracted to this post. There are quite a few sites like these now. My preference is https://cheap-cycling.co.uk..

https://cycling-bargains.co.uk is a really useful resource and I've picked up a few genuine bargains through it that I wouldn't otherwise have come across. The offers and the price drops are genuine and I like to have a look every now and again.

I have to say that I find https://cheap-cycling.co.uk far less useful by comparison as the offers are not particularly noteworthy and the vast majority of the links are to Amazon.

I've bookmarked it but does seem very limited as only a selection of bike shops are searched by the looks of it and more general shopping searchs work better. A quick general search which includes ebay, amazon and other major retailers who sell bicycle parts quickly found better prices on all I searched for. This being a retro bike forum looking for older bicycle parts pretty much has to include ebay and Amazon.

This will be better as it expands the number of retailers searched. Maybe it only limits searches to retailers where it can earn money but some shopping search engines include both paid and unpaid links to shopping sites these are much better. Also I must admit once I've found a bargain I will always launch the shop site via topcashback etc to get extra money myself. Often shopping search engines know this so have advertising on the search page itself as another source of revenue.

Like cycle bargains thanks for sharing, less so the others out there. Hopefully in time these places will get better but for me the one I find most useful is http://www.bikebargains.co.uk/

Picked up a pile of Brev M saddles for £2.50 ea and Brev M flat pedals for £2 ea from there recently - ideal for fixing bikes up for our local cycle speedway kids club

Hi All,

Thanks very much for your positive and constructive comments. We are adding new stores all the time and currently have feeds from 32 Merchants included in the Dealfinder, listed below for your reference. Other deals are occasionally added if they come to our attention.

This is a very competitive market, my first suggestion would always be to support your local bike shop. If thats not possible, practical or overly expensive would love for more people to use our site rather than big multi-national companies like Vouchercodes or Google etc.

We have a fairly new feature allowing you to create a "Price Alert" to notify you if the price of a selected item goes down.

>>> https://www.facebook.com/cyclebargains

Both Cycling Bargains and Bike Bargains have been fantastic resources for me in the past... you always find something that you end up needing :)

Another site I recently came across is https://gearpursuit.com/deals/ a decent deals page that seems to be refreshed daily. A handy feature that I've found is their newsletter (the daily deals page sent via email) and also their price/stock notifications.
Worth taking a look too.

Good luck price hunters!
