10% Discount code in Tredz this weekend TZ10. So Reverb Stealth comes down to £212. Apart from Germany, which I don't want to do, has anyone seen better?

Aldi, the biking world's answer to Skoda, have some interesting things coming up in their Special Buy event.

Just bought a bike stand pretty sturdy and compact when folded £25 only downside I can see is it won't clamp seat posts

No it rotates, it will hold a seat post but it is a little big to clamp it easily and difficult to lock tight to stop the bike from swinging down

I have a Lidl one. Happy enough with it for the money. But it too won't hold the weight of the bike by the post in set position. It swings down as well. Still good enough to do a job. When I'm a bit more sorted with my garage I might invest in a different one.

Just used it to remove my crank which took some effort and I was pleasantly suprised, the clamp is a bit weak but for the money its not a bad bit of kit,

Aldi are selling bike stuff again. Including a Garmin GPS, some Muc Off stuff and a 1200 lumen Cree light.

They've  even got a maintenance stand for the same price I was hoping to sell my 2nd hand Lidl version for! :o :-[  Guess I'll need to lower my expectations on that one!  ;D
