The life of a DealCatcher is not easy. Like a deep-sea fisherman, the journey to find retail sustenance for you - our esteemed readers - is rough and unpredictable.
Within the DealCatching trade there are peaks and troughs, sometimes we'll find the most beautiful bicycles at bargain prices, other times we'll come up short and only muster a 2010 edition saddle reduced by 50p. But here at road.cc we're diligent, and we never return home from our internet-faring deal fishing trips without prize catches to offer you.
Today's no different. Two whopping bike deals from Raleigh and Specialized, Castelli's fantastic Entrata jersey at a 43% discount, more Fizik bar tape than you can wave a handlebar at, and an incredible sportive nutrition bundle from the guys at Science in Sport.
Packing a great set of RSP AC3.0 wheels, the Raleigh Militis ticks a number of boxes if you're looking for a racer that'll do the business while looking the business for a decent price.
A stiff, light frame delivers fantastic acceleration, and the SRAM S150 chainset means that at under £750 you'd struggle to go wrong.
The aluminium-framed 2015 Specialized Dolce will get you over the hills on your weekend rides, to work's door safely on your commutes, it'll even stretch to a long distance day in the saddle - all in comfort and style.
The Dolce runs Shimano's Clarice groupset, and a pair of AXIS classic wheels.
Securing a solid 8/10 when we reviewed it back in May 2014, the Castelli Entrata - in our tester James Whateley's words - is a "comfortable, simple, high quality jersey that ticks all the boxes for pleasant summer riding."
What are you waiting for?
Bar tape gets fairly old fairly quickly, especially when you're riding through the wet in the UK, and the tragedy of it is, so many of us don't even think to change our tape.
Well, why not take this as an opportunity to change that up? Is it time to feel the new tape under your fingers, Appreciate the added cushioning with every bump and pothole, or style-up your bike with a dashing new colour?
We think so. Pink all round?
Finally, Science in Sport are back with their final round of Tour de France discounts, as their bundle offer comes to an end.
There are still some incredible bargains going, including this Sportive Pack, which covers everything you could possibly need - nutrition wise - for your weekend's excursion.
