If you're looking to upgrade your ride for the summer, it looks like Hargroves is the place to go. Regardless of your budget you'll be able to take home a selection of free bike bits, the size of that selection however does depend on your budget.

Up to £250 of FREE kit when you buy a 2016 road bike
Cube's 2016 Attain GTC Disc | £1799.99
First up we've got the Spend & Save deal that we mentioned above for you.
Hargroves have a huge selection for 2016 road bikes, but Cube's 2016 Attain GTC Disc road bike caught our eye.
If you opt for the Cube, you'll be getting an extra £150 to spend on bike kit.
Cube's Litening range is a favourite of ours here at road.cc and the new-for-2016 disc-equipped Attain has already got our mouths watering.
Cube's new Comfort Flex carbon frame has a tapered head tube and an integrated headset and is supposedly surprisingly stiff - despite the choice of name.
The rear end seas Aero Flex stays, which bizarrely do flex, and make the ride significantly more comfortable than the front end would suggest, which is just as well, this is a high performance long-distance racer.
The rest of the componentry features Shimano's Ultegra groupset, Shimano BR-RS505 hydraulic disc brakes, DT Swiss Spline R24 wheels, and Schwalbe One Kevlar tyres.
Away from the Spend & Save hullabaloo, there are some fantastic deals to be had on Hargroves' stock from last season.
This 2015 Bianchi Intenso features a full Shimano Tiagra groupset, a geometrically comfortable high-end carbon monocoque frame, Shimano WH-R501 wheels, and a San Marco Era Startup Power saddle.
As far as bang-for-buck bikes go, this one's pretty high on our list.
Even if you're not prepared for the summer yet, you can at least get your wardrobe up to scratch. And it's even easier with Hargroves' massive discount on Specialized's RBX Expert kit.
This RBX jersey and short bundle, with its 57% discount, offers incredible value for money.
The jersey's got a comfortable fit, which means you won't be sticking to the inside of a skintight race jersey in the blazing sunshine. There's a hydrofit finish on the elastic SL 130 fabric that helps moisture evaporate, speeding up the drying process. A full front zipper will help keep you cool, reflective stripes will keep you seen, and UPF50 UV protection will keep you not sunburnt.
The bib shorts offer good value too. Their anatomic shape, heavy Action Elastan material offers fantastic muscle support from a compression standpoint, elasticated hems and silicon grippers will keep the shorts in place too.
We like Tifosi sunglasses, we've reviewed quite a few of them. We've even reviewed the Pro Escalates that feature here as recently as March.
When these goggles passed across our review desk our man Dave Atkinson snapped them up, took them out for a spin, and finished up giving them a solid 8/10.
He said they the Tifosi Pro Escalates are a "versatile eyewear system that gives you a good range of frames and lenses in one case."
He does go into more detail in the review, which you can read below, but we'll note that while these are Tifosi's most expensive pair of glasses, Dave says they "still represent decent value because they're really versatile, and it's good to have everything you could reasonably need in one place.
"If you're looking for one purchase to cover all your eyewear needs - on and off the bike - these are definitely worth looking at."
Finally, if you missed yesterday's DealCatcher, Hargroves' deal on Garmin smartwatches featured.
This is the Garmin Forerunner 630. It features a stunning full colour touchscreen and metrics that can monitor distance, speed, and your lactate threshold, as well as your stride length and running performance when you decide - god knows why - to leave your bike at home.
We also mentioned yesterday that you can also buy one of seven Garmin smartwatch options for bargain prices right now. That offer is made even more appealing thanks to the extra £5 Hargroves are offering off of the Forerunner 230 & 235 with the coupon code 'Garmin5'.
