Yes, it would appear that buying the special priced bundle will result in you paying £8 more ... bargaintastic :-bd

Yep, you pay more for the priviledge of buying the 2 together. The PX pricing software is a joy to behold. When I was there we had access to the net purchase price to which we added 30% to cover handling and vat. I quite ligitimately bought a lovely carbon cyclocross frame and disc compatible forks which is still going strong for £45. I'd guess these bags are being knocked up in Taiwan for well under a tenner.

I wasn't looking at this jacket but something else. The voucher was invalid for what I had in my basket but there are no T&Cs anywhere on the site

Nice one. I have fixed the link on my original post - don't click the one on Clou9's post as it is a 404.

Thanks but remember these only have 2 rows of studs supposedly not so good on fast cornering. I don't think its good idea to corner fast on ice!
I struggled with them on a steep hill Friday, bad ice with a thin layer of snow over the top. BUT on this occasion I was using a power assist bike pulling a 14.5 kilo trailer with an 18 kilo dog. Lots of kit in my pannier bags to boot. Not really a fair test.

I have no idea why the address is so ridiculously long.
