SUMMARY

10 October 2023, 07:27
Welcome to the road.cc Amazon Prime Day live blog (again)

Déjà vu? The cynical among you might say we've already had two Amazon Prime Days this year, and that having another two in October just three months later is yet another step in the quest to get you to hand your money over to the international retail giant. The cynical among you might also point out that Amazon Prime Days 3 and 4 are also conveniently spaced out in advance of next month's Black Friday consumerism-extravaganza, in the run up to Christmas and the New Year sales...

We say it before every one of these deals blogs and we'll say it again today — you don't have to buy anything, and you certainly don't have to buy from Amazon if you don't want to... but we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't point out that some of the deals on cycling kit, tech and accessories you'll see over the next 48 hours may well be the cheapest prices you can get.

So, if you need something, were planning on buying something anyway, you might find Amazon Prime Day offers you your best deal. Alternatively you could just support your local bike shop instead (we won't grass you up to Bezos)...

To get the deals you'll need an Amazon Prime account, which you can usually get on a month-long trial, or for 99p for a week if you've already used your free month up. Just set a reminder in your phone to cancel it before you get billed the full whack (again, we won't tell Big Jeff if you don't). 

If you see any decent cycling-related deals, feel free to drop them in the comments after you've finished cursing Amazon and us for running this blog. 

We also have to mention that road.cc may earn a small commission from some of the deals on this page if you click on anything and buy it. We doubt it will be much, but every little helps.

Taking your training indoors? The Saris Fluid2 indoor trainer is now a ridiculous £74.64!
Saris Fluid2

We were pretty amazed that the dependable, road.cc-rated Saris Fluid2 was down to £82 yesterday, and now it's even less at £74.64! 

If you don't need a smart trainer or even just want a spare for pre-race car park warm-ups, you're not going to find better for less than this. It's not even a Prime Day deal, but is probably the biggest cycling bargain we've found on Amazon these past few days.

Gore thermowear bibs prime day

Gore kit usually gets close top marks whenever we review it on road.cc, and although 91 quid is still quite a lot of money, it's by far the best deal we can find on the high quality Thermo bib tights at the moment, at 24% off the RRP.

With a slim fit and Gore's Windstopper tech, you can stay warm yet still train hard and ride fast in these quality bib tights that should last you many winters.

Friendly reminder that Giro is still owned by Vista Outdoor, the ammunition manufacturer that donates a significant amount of money to the NRA so that the school shootings can continue.

(They did originally say that they were going to separate Giro, but that appears to have been just a marketing lie).

Do Giro make any useful cycling products, or is it just plastic hats? Maybe they should look into bulletproof lids for american schools.

Worth pointing out that there's no need to set reminders to cancel trial subscriptions, just cancel them immediately. You'll still get the trial period.

We could fill a fair few pages with accounts of how Amazon workers are treated (i.e, abused & exploited) in the UK and around the world. I don't buy anything from Amazon and I seem to manage just fine.

Just checked my amazon account, last six months

tine screwdriver for changing battery on my garmin HRM, don't know where else i would have got that.

new racket grips - could have found elsewhere online

new bar tape - could have used wiggle / merlin

shimano jockey wheels - couldn't find anywhere else strangely

tubeless sealant injector - couldn't find anywhere else

skullshaver -sure i could have found that elsewhere.

so about 1 order a month, most I could buy elsewhere, probably time to cancel my prime

It would be great if Road CC did a live blog on Amazon stopping using every accountancy trick they can to reduce the amount of tax they pay.

According to this well trusted source, Amazon paid no tax for the last two years:

Hear hear. 

If you are out on a ride and can't get service from a local shop or you can't test ride the bike you are interested in to see if it works for your body, shit like this is the reason. 

Across every industry, not just bikes, amazon is destroying the ability for local owned businesses which support your community to survive. Every penny spent on amazon is a penny gone from your community. 

I am disappointed in Road.cc for publicising this.

That's not necessarily true, right wing folks often want free capitalism and the government not to interfere with competition. By the government subsidising amazon through lack of taxation which other companies can't benefit from they are crushing the competition which would allow competitors to flourish. 

I don't claim to speak for Left_Is but thinking amazon destroying our economy for the benefit of half a dozen people is a bad thing isn't really a partisan issue.

However, capitalism inherently leads to businesses attempting to gain and abuse a monopoly. Certainly in this country, there has been a push by right-wingers to gift monopolies to certain people via privitisation (e.g. water companies). It's quite typical for lefties to decry businesses that abuse their power and for righties to celebrate big businesses for their massive profits.

IMO - Amazon, great for cheap stuff, quick delivery on urgent bits and great for customer service. I get a bit from there.

But where possible, or certainly for higher value purchases/items you want a proper warranty or local service, you need to look closer to home. 

I don't agree with the lack of taxation on a giant like this either though.

That's due to certain commenters not posting sincerely and instead, just putting whatever they think will get a response to themselves. It's annoying and we certainly don't want to be encouraging them to continue posting their rancid views, even if they occasionally post something that seems reasonable (though I'm sure that they will then pivot into continuing their pointless attention seeking). The situation is made worse when certain commenters have previously been banned from this site due to their various racist/sexist comments.

There is a reason that people value their reputations and that's so that others will know whether they are dealing with someone with honestly held views and opinions or just some random bullshitter.

Funnily enough, if you read the comments, other people agree with me! 

Holding an opinion that money trumps ethics is just that. If you think it's fine for them to promote Amazon, that's all good. It was just a reason why road.cc would promote it.

It has nothing to do with whether one approves of it or not, you came in stating "Road.cc probably get ad or affiliate revenue from Amazon" as if they were doing something underhand when in fact they freely admit that they do in the text. Your disdain for this site and its commenters is well-known; one could hardly miss it as it has been frequently restated by you both in your current iteration and under your previous, now banned for trolling amongst other unsavoury behaviours, identity. Everybody knows who you are and what you are so it's a bit late to try and pretend that you are the good-natured voice of reason in this neighbourhood.
