The DealCatcher's here with some wet weather appropriate cycling gear, a 2017 Colnago bike & Cube bibshorts!...

On what's been a particularly non-summer late-July day down here at road.cc HQ in Bath, the DealCatcher's got one deal in particular that'll see you through British summer days like today.

Alongside deals on a Colnago road bike and Cube bibshorts, today's first deal is a 50% discount on Sportful's short sleeve waterproof Fiandre jacket - perfect for days like today.

The previously mentioned Cube bibshorts are up next. They too have seen half of their asking price sliced away by the folks at Hargroves Cycles. So, if you're in the market for a comfortable pair of bibs, that offer might be right for you.

Finally, we head over to Chain Reaction Cycles to check out a cracking deal on a Shimano 105-running 2017 Colnago road bike.

First up is our very weather-appropriate jacket deal.

Many of you will be well-equipped in the waterproof cycling gear department, but if you're anything like us that waterproof wardrobe will be geared towards the colder months.

That feeling of a humid sweaty rain jacket isn't a great one, but it can be avoided with a number like Sportful's Fiandre jacket.

Short sleeves and a highly breathable membrane, coupled with fully seam-sealed windstopper construction makes for a jacket that'll keep you dry and comfortable.

Hargroves Cycles

50% off Cube's Tour Bibshorts
WAS £54.99 | NOW £27.50

Cube's Tour Bibshorts are not fussy. They're classically designed, tight fitting shorts that are the "rules" appropriate colour: black.

Now, we're not ones for subscribing to arbitrary rules on what people should or shouldn't wear while riding, but it's difficult not to admire a plain black pair of shorts. Classic.

 

Chain Reaction Cycles

16% off Colnago's 2017 A1-R Road Bike
WAS £1599.95 | NOW £1349.99

Finally, Colnago's 2017 A1-R road bike rounds off today's DealCatcher.

Colnago lauds the bike's speed, fluidity, stability and lightness in its write-up.

The A1-R's aluminium frame carries Shimano's excellent 105 groupset alongside Colnago's own Artimis R28 wheels, and carbon fork, with Selle Italia's QBIK saddle topping the ensemble off.

Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.

Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.

When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
