The DealCatcher is back this pleasant Thursday afternoon with some more fantastic cycling deals for you guys to tuck in to.
First up is a Limited Edition, limited time, limited availability offer on Ribble's own-brand Ribble Sportive Racing carbon road bike.
Next up we've got a cracking - or not if this product does its job - deal on Abus's Ultimate Home Security Lock Bundle. This 20%-off offer is available at Cycle Surgery now, for those of you looking to maximise your bike's security when it's at home.
Finally, we head over to Chain Reaction Cycles where you can take advantage of a huge 58% discount on Fixik's M3B cycling shoes. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice the 'M' and 'B' initials and approach our final offer with caution. Hear us out: mountain bike shoes - especially ones like these - are more than suitable for road cyclists!
Today's first deal, as we've already mentioned, is Ribble's Sportive Racing Limited Edition Shimano 105-equipped road bike.
On paper, as our man Stu Kerton pointed out in his review, this bike is an incredible bundle.
The Toray T700//T800 carbon frameset gives the Sportive Racing a incredible versatility, Shimano's 105 groupset gives it almost unmatchable pulling power at this price band, and the Rodi Airline 5 wheelset will keep your rolling wonderfully consistently.
The bike's swept up plenty of end-of-year best-of categories across the industry, so it's certainly one to consider, and at this price a deal not to be missed out on.
Some of you out there have experienced the horrifying feeling of having your bike stolen, other's have experienced the considerably worse feeling of having your bike stolen from your house.
There are steps you can take to avoid that feeling.
Just like locking your bike up when you leave it on the street, it's essential that you do the same at home. If you're without a convenient and secure place to lock your bike up in your garage or your garden, it's definitely worth considering a set-up like the one Abus has on offer here.
While you might be slightly deterred by the price tag, it's worth considering how much your peace of mind is worth. Also, Abus's gear is exceptional. Check out our 9/10 review of this lock below:

The final deal of the day may have got some of you road purists a little riled.
First, let's take a chill pill. Second, not only do these MTB shoes do a great job at masquerading as road shoes - check out that sleek, black profile - in many cases MTB suit road cyclists better than road shoes.
MTB shoes differentiate themselves most obviously by their chunky grips on their soles.
Now, most commuters know that certain routes require them to dismount, others know that the slippery walk to the shower can be even more dangerous as riding on busy roads with poor cycling infrastructure.
These shoes offer great value, and with Fizik you're know you're getting quality.
