OT: Bargain Outdoor Equipment

Discussion in 'UK and Europe' started by Richard Bates, Mar 8, 2004.

  1. Anybody who lives near a YHA adventure shop may fancy
    popping in: Since being taken over by Field and Trek (AIUI
    YHA went bust, and were taken over by Karrimor, who
    subsequently went bust (not the first time?)) Karrimor stuff
    is between 50% and 75% off.

    This is certainly the case at Birmingham - I assume it is
    the case nationally.

    Most of the stock is walking and camping related rather than
    cycling related but since many of us URCers seem to like the
    great outdoors in general then you may find a bargain.

    KSB 100 GTX boots were UKP35, and a folding gas stove which
    packs inside two nesting pans was a fiver.

    Unfortunately, Karrimor/Field&Trek don't seem to have bought
    out the YHA's cycle section so there are no bargain bikes or
    accessories to be had - Not even karrimor panniers :-(

    Hope you find a bargain ...

    Love and hugs from Rich x
