Welcome to a Friday edition of the road.cc DealCatcher where we're continuing with our autumn prep!
You won't want to miss out on any of these Chain Reaction Cycles deals, especially if you're not feeling totally prepared for the colder weather yet.
We've got some bargain wheels from Easton, some overshoes from SealSkinz, Giro's Aspect Helmet, a quality waterproof jacket from Endura, a pair of shoes from Northwave, and an FSA chain.
So, without any further ado, let's get stuck in.
If you're after a lightweight pair of wheels that'll see you safely through the next few months, and you want them for a bargain price, check these Easton wheels over at Chain Reaction.
We reviewed the EA70s back in their 2010 iteration and our man Mat Brett endorsed their roll and their weight.
Six years later and Easton is still talking about how smooth these wheels roll and how dependable they are.
The rain's not too serious yet, neither are the cold mornings. Believe us, though, both of those are going to be pretty tough on your bodies over the coming months.
That is, if you're not prepared.
Your feet and toes are pretty vulnerable - what with being miles from the rest of you - and if they're not feeling good you'll struggle to enjoy our bike ride.
SealSkinz's overshoes will help keep your feet dry and warm, and these Halo neoprene boots will do it really really well.
At least, that's what our tech editor David Arthur said when he gave them a 9/10 in a road.cc review.
If you're after a bit of performance level performance without the performance looks, then Giro's Aspect helmet should be right up your street.
Targeted at noncompetitive riders, but with a streamlined body and a incredibly light weight, the Aspect should be top of your list if you're looking for stylish and comfortable on-bike headwear.
It's at a pretty spectacular price right now over at Chain Reaction too!
Endura say its combined "the latest ultrasonic welded techniques and external seam-sealing technology to create the first ever fully waterproof, breathable Stealth II Jacket."
We can't attest to those lofty claims, but Endura have history with producing great waterproof jackets - just check out the 10/10 FS260-Pro below - so we'll go as far as saying that we fully expect this jacket to perform excellently.
At a discount as big as this, it's difficult to go wrong.
When we reviewed Northwave's Galaxy road shoes, our tech editor Mat Brett called them "airy, stiff-soled and very comfy shoes that are easy to adjust on the fly."
He also gave them a very solid road.cc 8/10.
All of that was at the shoe's full price of £209.99. With a discount as hefty as this, for a shoe of this quality, the value is off the charts.
Finally, FSA's Team Issue Speed Chain has had an astronomical discount over at Chain Reaction.
The 74% discount may be masked by a particularly high RRP, but this is the cheapest you'll find the chain anywhere online - as far as we could find.
