How about this to lift the spirits? We have a classic honey coloured Brooks B17 saddle and matching bar tape combo worth over £100 to give away.
Apparently the tape is manufactured from ‘a synthetic textile which has been treated with a polyurethane coating for maximum resistance against abrasion and moisture’, but just as importantly, it looks pretty good too. Whether you run a classic tourer or a fixie, we’re confident the seat and tape will add practicality and flair to your favourite ride.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply leave us a comment at the bottom of this page and let us know what bike you’d fit them to. We’ll pick a winner next week.
According to Brooks: “The B17 saddle has been our best selling model for over a century. First introduced in the 1890s, the B17 has survived virtually unchanged, and has firmly established itself as the saddle of choice for long distance cyclists.”
Are stolen parts covered by cycle insurance?
It’s important to check whether your cycle insurance policy covers components against theft. Are your wheels covered? What about the seat? It’s not uncommon for thieves to steal the handlebars, shifters and all, by cutting away all the cables – would you be compensated if this happened to you? Cycle insurance from the ETA covers all parts against theft without onerous restrictions on the way you use your bike.
For example, while we recommended you lock your wheels, it’s not a requirement – if you are unlucky enough to have your wheels stolen they will be replaced.
Other benefits included as standard are £2m third party, accidental damage, cycle rescue breakdown cover for your bike and you and a sympathetic policy on storage requirements. Find out about these benefits and others that are included at no extra cost and compare it to the competition.
