the zee rear mech they have is only really suitable for a DH bike with a road cassette. cranks are nice though
ribble sportive for the black stuff

Canyon Strive AL 8.0 for the brown and green stuff.

Whoops, didnt see this thread...I did look honest! :oops:

Just to add, you can get a further £10 off by liking them on facebook. I've ordered a set of XT shifters for £50ish inc shipping.

Snap. Came back after a couple of days away and my brakes were still in the basket but cheaper. Scooby dooby.

Why are the continentals so much cheaper. Chain reaction largest online bike company eh? How about using that buying clout and bring us prices inline with those pesky Germeens and Froggies?

Continental are a German company, and things are always sold cheaper in their country of origin than other places. Same reasons Mercedes and BMW are about the only Taxi's you will see out there, the price difference is huge!

Shimano are japanese, so how the heck do the germans continue to chuck out their stuff so cheap?! Like seriously cheap!! I'm having to physically avoid the sight to convince myself I don't need xtr cranks from there :lol:

is there a voucher code, or has 10% just been applied throughout every product (apart from bikes)?? I've got to the end and can't see anything about 10% being applied?

Exchange rates, the prices are set in Euro and the exchange rate swing this year has dropped them by about 20% for us.

Yeh I saw the XT's.........the XT's are heavier than the SLX's and the pad adjustment doesnt do much so the money I saved will go towards a new set of wheels for my new bike. :lol:

I went for slx as they are apparently tuffer. Continentals = tyres. Guffaw.

Rose are a huge bike company as well as mail order so they've got enormous economies of scale. I kind of expected that some of their stuff would be OEM but so far everything's been retail boxed.

It's been suggested that Shimano's UK importers are scalpers as well but I couldn't really comment on that ;)

The Deore cranks I just got were OEM, as was the rear SLX mech and Zee shifter.

Anyone know how to get the £10 off? I entered the code but it said it wasn't recognised and to put it in the comments box so I did but it hasn't been taken off. Should I just email them?

Quick bump on this.
They sent me the wrong part and didn't have a replacement for 6 weeks so I opted for a refund.
Just want to say what excellent customer service; it's when a retailer has to deal with issues such as this that you find out how good they are. Returning the goods was painless and I have a full refund.

huh? Reverbs start at £160 from Bike-Discount...not sale, just there standard prices. Admittedly that's for a 100mm one but my 125mm only cost £170
