Is there a known best time to get the best value?

I need a clear out - 2 wetsuits, loads of bike crap (extensions, BTA nutrition bottles etc).

I think wisdom would dictate Feb/Mar, a while after Christmas, but pre-season.

I am with Jorgan. I have a few bike bits and Thule roof rack feet and bars to sell but will wait until Feb-Mar as I reckon I'll get more for them then.

Cheers, I was thinking similar.
Just as people start to wake up to the reality of open water swimming again!

In my experience, 4-6 weeks before London Tri is peak time.

I have one of the XLab Turbo wings. I'm working away today but will be back tomorrow afternoon, I'll have a look and make sure all the bits are there.

If you only needed one cage, then zip-ties is the obvious solution....especially for a tight-wad northerner Wink

Did that before - it won't work on this seatpost, which has super annoyed me.

I've managed to do it on aero and round seatposts; what's the issue, have you got the saddle really far forward?

Yes. It's also on the first notch (Not the UCI/CTT hip angle one)
I cannot fit a saddle bag rail to it, either.

Pretty sure it's also down to the fact the saddle is super-odd, too.

I wonder if the Tacx mount might work? https://www.wiggle.co.uk/tacx-bottle-cage-saddle-mount/

I had one I never used, but not sure if I sold it on ebay a while back. I'll have a check at some point in the garage, if it might be useful to you.
