We’ve always thought we have an eye for fantastic cycling kit, but when our catalogue gets the thumbs up from a newspaper heavyweight like the Independent we know we’re definitely on the right track.

This week the Independent’s I newspaper features no less than three Drovers-stocked products in a cycling gear Top 10 – confirming the hours and days we’ve spent scouring trade shows and meeting sales reps hasn’t gone to waste!

We aim to bring you the highest quality bike accessories, and just to prove that shopping local can be as cheap as the web, we’ll even match the online prices quoted in the Indy’s piece.

First up is the CamelBak Eddy, which the Indy says is ‘among the coolest water bottles they’ve come across’. And did you know they carry a lifetime guarantee? Price-match deal: £12.59.

Also making the list is the Topeak Race Rocket Master Blaster pump. (Try saying that with a mouthful of Haribo!) At just 18cm in length, it’s small enough to fit in your jacket. ‘But it still packs a punch,’ says the Indy. Agreed. Price-match deal: £24.99.

Lastly, we have the Knog Strongman Lock. Top-notch security should be on every cyclist’s shopping list if you want to keep the thieves at bay. The Strongman not only looks amazing, it boasts a ‘gold’ rating from Sold Secure – the test house of choice for security products. Price-match deal: £64.99.

As an aside, The Independent’s hit list also includes an eye-wateringly expensive leather Chapeau frame bag. At less than half the price – just £90 – we stock legendary brand Brooks handmade-in-the-UK leather tool bag.
