Half price Avid Elixir 1 Front Disc Brake (black) for $48.27 by Chain Reaction Cycles

1 April 2013

Chain Reaction Cycles yesterday launched a "Seven Deadly Deals" promo on seven selected products for one week only. The 50% off on the Avid Elixir 1 front disc brake (160mm with G2CS Rotor) was the thing that grabbed me.

Interestingly, after browsing to the site I see the actual discount is 57%, which with shipping only takes the price to $58.26. This is still $27.22 less than Wiggle's offer including a "10% off" discount.

Chain Reaction's promo also features two other items which caught my eye. Their "45% off" headline offer for Shimano Ultegra SPD-SL 6700 Road Pedals actually came out at 53% off on the site itself at $77.23. Same with their "40% off" on on De Marchi Contour PRO Jerseys SS13 which in fact was a 48% discount at $42.48.

So there may be a few more hidden discounts lurking elsewhere on the site.

    These are Avids most basic disk brakes but have consistently been reviewed as value for money and could easily be considered an 'upgrade' if your bike has a low end brand. Local price for the same kit undelivered is in the region of $80 to $90 so the price is good.

What do you think?
