We know you guys love a bargain, so we’re going to help you out and link you up with some of the best weekly deals that we’ve found online.
This week it’s all about the MTB disc brakes with up to 79% off.
The only thing we can use to slow ourselves down, disc brakes used to be the realm of the pros but they’ve even found their way onto road bikes. A good disc brake should be light, powerful, offer good modulation, be reliable but be easy to service when it does come to it.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out in your local bike shop too – those guys deserve your support and will often have deals of their own.
And, just so you know, the links in this article link through to an online retailer. Thanks to a special bit of code, we receive a small (but really helpful) commission from anything you purchase. By doing this we can bring in some income to keep Wideopenmag pumping, pay for content and keep the site alive. Thanks for your support.

SRAM’s Guide brakes brought four piston trail bike power to the masses and this model Guide T may lack the adjustment but still has the power on tap.
