If you know if any other deals out there, please feel free to post a comment of the item and where it could be found. will initiate a “Deal Day” once a week. Basically this is a day when we post all the deals that we can find online and through a LBS. So with that in mind, we want to know what it is you, the bike commuter are usually shopping for when it comes to bike commuting related items?

I go through lube and tubes like no one’s business. I also like to swap out parts on my bikes, so once cables have been used, I usually end up getting new ones.

But what about you? What kind of bike commuting items do you buy all the time that you would like to save money on?

A while back Alan Barnard wrote a review on the Keen Commuter Sandal. So many folks showed interest in it that I decided to look for a cheaper alternative since the Keen’s retail for $115 at places like REI.

Well you’re in luck, our Team Sponsor, sells a very similar sandal called the Sette MK SPD sandal.

Sette MK SPD Sandals – Relax or Ride in Style

The SPD-compatible Sette MK sandals let you relax or ride in style. Dual hook & loop straps keep you in control and are padded to provide comfort. The contoured semi-rigid sole of the Sette MK Sandals give you the optimum balance of stiffness for biking or hiking. The soft rugged outsole gives you traction wet or dry.

If my biking budget wasn’t already spoken for…I would have bought these.

The Sette CR-9 Commuter Bike
would make a great machine for anyone that wants to start commuting…but is on a budget. Besides, it has 700c wheels, in my opinion, a better choice for a commuter than a 26″.(uh oh…I hear the 26″ riders coming to get me with their comments!)
