Refresh your bike with these cut-price groupset deals

A new groupset can breathe fresh life into an older bike, so for this week's edition of BikeRadar Bargains we've trawled the web looking for the best cheap cycling groupset deals around.

Deals on Eagle groupsets are still few and far between, but uByk is currently offering a healthy 24 percent discount on the top-end, gold-licious, range-tastic XX1 drivetrain. 

Shimano Dura-Ace 9070 Di2 groupset — £3,499.99 £1,849

Dura Ace 9000 may have been superseded by the exceedingly handsome Dura-Ace 9100, but that doesn't make the previous generation any less excellent than it was before.

While still a rather expensive indulgence for the majority of us mere mortals, if you're in the market for a dream bike build then this offer is pretty hard to pass up. 

Shimano 105 5800 11-speed groupset — £559.99 £349.99

Don't knock the silver version of the Shimano 105 groupset until you have seen it in the flesh!

Ahh, good ol' 105, the blue collar hero of groupsets. While it lacks the deep, graphite looks of its more expensive cousin, its performance is flawless and we'd be happy to run it on any of our bikes, from racer to weekend pootler.

Available in either black of silver (don't knock the shiny version until you've seen it in the flesh!) for a mere £349.99.

Shimano SLX M7000 1x11 transmission — £336.99 £224.99

If you're just looking to upgrade your transmission, this group can be had for a mere £224.99 from Chain Reaction Cycles.

If you've been in the game long enough, it'll come as no surprise that Shimano's latest and greatest road groupset is already available with a healthy, healthy discount.

With 43% off currently at Chain Reaction Cycles, this five-star groupset will not disappoint. 

Campagnolo Potenza groupset — £735 £525

The new-ish Campagnolo Potenza groupset is best thought of as Chorus cast in alloy and is becoming increasingly common spec on a number of bikes. 

We were quite fond of Potenza when we reviewed it back in December, but we're even more keen on the 28 percent saving currently available on the grouspet at Wiggle. 

SRAM Red eTap upgrade groupset — £1,346 £1049.99

This upgrade kit from SRAM is the cheapest way to go wireless

If you're in the fortunate position to own a nice set of cranks and brakes but you still want to go wireless, SRAM has the answer, offering its RED eTap groupset as an upgrade pack that includes the batteries, shifters and both mechs.

While still pretty expensive, the performance of the group is flawless and is almost sure to drop some weight from your bike.
