Thanks for the heads-up @hugo7, I grabbed one too - but the non-MIPS version has arrived. Not sure I can be fussed to complain given the price. Half considering grabbing one of the 11 left in stock to see if a MIPS shows up, though the £12 price is some inflation from yesterday!
I ordered two at £3.70 then immediately ordered another two for my friends kids. I noticed a couple hours later the price was around £6.
They turned up today and I have no doubt they are genuine. Mine are all MIPS version as advertised.
They seem like very high quality bits of kit. A great bargain.
I've seen strange pricing on amazon before. About a year ago I found a set of 2020 RockShox Boxxer Ultimate forks on Amazon for sale at £580, at the time rrp was around £1200 and cheapest I could find them online was just shy of £1000.
I was really tempted to buy them but by the time I'd convinced my self the price had went up to around £1200.
Mine says non-mips on the box but says MIPS on the helmet itself
I on occasion deeply regret not picking up a Teenage Engineering OP-1 that I saw for £600 once.
I was pleased to get two at £3.69, shortly before they shot back up - I think this is a case of algorithmic pricing - I don't know how this works (I always thought it was one seller trying to undercut another?) but I know it is a thing, and I don't feel bad taking advantage if it's Amazon that loses out!
At this rate most of LFGSS juniors are going to be roaming around with Gold helmets 😂
See a gold helmet: "DO A SKID!"
Cue look of puzzlement on child's face...
Also top parentingpsychologyknowledge from Mrs c00ps - middle daughter has now swapped her identical helmet with eldest "this one fits fine".
bikeparts.co.uk: spoke with them over the phone and they upgraded my delivery to make sure a new wheel arrived pronto. Never bought from them before but they were good, and cheaper. So, a quick plug.
Like the helmets btw. Colour-matched my bike circa 1990.
holy shit thats amazing.
£6.50 - pricing error?
MTB front mech in 2021 .. seems overpriced
