The DealCatcher's got a bumper set of deals for you this Wednesday which includes free vouchers, coupons for extra money off already stonking deals, and a cracking set of Easton wheels!
We get things rolling *ahem* with a cracking set of wheels from Wheelies, their Easton EA90 Clincher Wheels have had almost a third of their RRP sliced away by the deal merchants - and what's more, they're a fantastic lightweight and durable road wheel option!
We move on from Wheelies to Hargroves Cycles where you can get your hands, or your wrists, on a huge range of Garmin fitness watches. These aren't just great deals, there's a £5 coupon available to you on two of the watches if you pop the code 'Garmin5' into the appropriate box upon checkout.
Finally, we finish the DealCatcher on a huge set of deals from Cycle Surgery wherein they're offering you up to £150 of FREE MONEY for doing nothing else but buying from them.
We say free money, but they're free vouchers, which is kind of the same thing if you're planning on spending money with Cycle Surgery any way. The deal goes: spend £500-£999 and you'll be rewarded with a £50 voucher, spend between £1000 and £1499 and you'll have a handy £100 to spend, and if you spend over £1500 you'll be granted a £150 voucher.
We've got some advice for you on what to buy to activate these deals below.
Wheelies - Promoted deal
First up are Wheelies and their wheel deal.
Easton make great wheels, there's no denying that. We reviewed their foray into the cyclocross market with their EA90 XD wheels back in February. We liked what we saw then, so if we extrapolate those findings into their road wheel range, which is not only far more extensive, but far more refined, we can expect the EA90 SLX's to performe even better.
Here's the low-down:
The EA90 SLX's are fantastic all-round set of road wheels. They're lightweight - they weigh in at 1.43kg - they've got a durable wide (18mm internal, 22.5mm external) tubeless rim which means they're suitable for a little bit of off-road fun as well as performing fantastically on the tarmac.
They're quick and dependable, which is pretty much all you're looking for in a set of road wheels, isn't it?
Hargroves Cycles - Promoted deal
Is wearable tech something of a fad? For the businessman and the fashion conscious? Maybe. For the cyclist? We're pretty sure it's not.
Garmin's range of Forerunner fitness watches has been developing into a truly exciting option riders who want to track their rides and their fitness more holistically, or without clogging up their cockpit.
Over at Hargroves Cycles right now you can buy one of seven Garmin smartwatch options for bargain prices, made even more appealing now that they're offering £5 extra off the Forerunner 230 & 235 with the coupon code 'Garmin5'.
From the cheapest Forerunner 10, which monitors your distance, pace, and calories for the small price of £78.99 (now it's had a discount of 21%) to the other end of the spectrum with the Forerunner 630 which we've featured above.
The 630's got a stunning full colour touchscreen and metrics that can monitor your running performance down to your stride length as well as monitoring your cycling distance, speed, and your lactate threshold.
'This One's on Us' offer:
£150 voucher when you spend £1500+
£100 voucher when you spend £1000-£1499
£50 voucher when you spend £500-£999
Finally, this one's on Cycle Surgery.
Seriously, they're offering you a round of whatever it is you fancy just by shopping with them.
Head on over to their website now if you don't believe us, but if you spend over £1500, which we all know is easily done when you're buying a bike, you'll get £150 from Cycle Surgery to spend on whatever you like to support that bike purchase.
There's quite the range to choose from too.
Take the Cycle Surgery exclusive deal on Orbea's Orca road bike above, for example. The £400 discount puts it right on the threshold for taking advantage of Cycle Surgery's voucher offer, but that's somewhat irrelevant to the quality of the deal itself.
Back in 2014 we reviewed this Orca's more expensive Shimano Si2 running big brother, you can read that review below, but the important thing to knonw at this point is that we liked it.
This Orca runs Shimano's 105 groupset, carries a full carbon steerer, a Vision Team 25mm wheelset, a Prologo Kappa Evo saddle, and FSA Gossamer Compact handlebars.
For the money you're shelling out here, you're getting a great deal on a brand new 2016 bike - plus essentially an extra £150 off.
If the Orca's a bit out of your budget range, below are two options that you can take advantage of if you're looking closer to the £500 mark.
Alternatives for lower budgets:
Trek's Lexa 2016
