The winter prep continues to ramp up and so the DealCatcher's taken a trip to some of the top retailers in the land to give you a hand.
If you're still on the search for a bike that'll see you through the winter months, we may have found your perfect poor weather partner in the Genesis Croix de Fer - which has received a 20% discount over at Evans
After that there's a bargain groupset upgrade waiting for you over at Chain Reaction cycles. Their stock of Shimano's Ultegra 6800 groupset has seen a 55% discount and now sits at a very palatable £449.99.
Finally you'll find a fantastic road.cc exclusive voucher offer from the guys over at BikeShed.
Simply whack the code ROADCC into the coupon box at checkout and you'll receive an extra 10% off your order. On top of that, they've got an incredible deal on the Specialized all-weather RS13 Windstopper Jacket.
Getting yourself kitted up with an all-conditions commuter, a solid audax or long-distance bike, or just a run around that’ll run and run and run can used to be an exercise wrought with difficult decisions.
Well, that's until Genesis introduced the Croix de Fer 20.
This bike's been around the world in world record breaking time, well one of its younger incarnations has, so it should have no problem getting you to and from work through the coldest months.
Our main man Dave Arthur gave the frameset an 8/10, why not take a punt and see what you'll make of it?
Chain Reaction Cycles
Is it time to upgrade your best bike's groupset? Perhaps you want to donate the groupest you've been riding on all year to your winter bike.
Well now's your perfect opportunity, because this groupset which our reviewer Dave Atkinson called "really, really, really good" is really, really, really cheap.
Finally, BikeShed came at the DealCatcher over the weekend with a two-pronged attack; a site-wide discount voucher exclusively for you, our faithful readers, and a massively discounted all-weather jacket.
To claim your discount, or extra discount if you fancy splashing out on this Specialized jacket, just pop the code ROADCC into the discount box when you're checking out your online basket.
The jacket itself will protect you from the autumnal conditions. It won't keep you bone dry in an epic downpour, but it'll keep you warm and protected from the wind and passing showers. Plus it looks good, has some reflective detailing, and an iPod headphone rout so you can stay entertained - but vulnerable to road traffic - on your ride.
Presumably they're ones that escaped from earlier experiments?...
I don't know about this. It's not exactly a Swiss watch that's being copied here nor is it a direct copy. It's less design copying than it is...
Ghost-bikes in prominent places are a London 'favourite' since no human is at additional risk and there's plenty of time for the stationary traffic...
How about air bags on the outside, but not on the inside?
Best stay away from fires: straw is quite inflammable.
Have you tried that? I have. For a light it's useless, doesn't lift the beam clear of the bag (not by a long way) so you ride in the shadow of the...
All nice and well but what I still miss on all those Garmin devices is the possibility to simply reverse a set course ......
Could be. They've also splashed out and repainted some give way markings where redways cross roads, some at junctions where cyclists often don't....
