The great cycling deals don't stop here at road.cc. The DealCatcher's back today with another dose of what Wiggle has on offer in the retailer's big Spring Deals sale.
We've got bikes and wheels and tyres and gloves and socks and even a waterproof jersey for you in today's DealCatcher, all of which are seasonably appropriate and absolute bargains.
The range of brands is almost as impressive as the depth of the discounts. You're looking at Altura gloves, Castelli socks, Michelin and Schwalbe tyres, De Rosa bikes, Campagnolo wheels, and a dhb jersey.
So, what are you waiting for? Time to tuck in!
It's time to up your mitt game. The full finger gloves of winter might be gone, but that's no reason to abandon your palms; they need protection from the road as much as the elements.
While the weather's still cool the Altura Peloton mitts will keep you protected from wind chill while also keeping your hands comfortable with gel inserts that protect you from all the bumps along the way.
Treat your feet to some merino wool bliss. Castelli's Diverso socks are made with the wonderfully soft and warm merino wool that's not only wicked at wicking moisture away, it's lightweight and breathable too.
For those reasons the Diversos are the perfect spring sock. They'll keep you warm on the cooler days, and allow your feet to breathe when the weather picks up.
Get them while they're hot. Schwalbe's Pro One Tubeless tyres are "superb" according to us.
Our man Iwein Dekoninck took the Pro Ones for a spin last year and called them "ultra-grippy and super fast."
If you're planning on going tubeless these are the tyres to go for.
At half price, we really don't see any reason for you not to give them a go!
While we're talking about tyres, let's have a look at an alternative option to the tubless Schwalbes above.
Tyre experts Michelin's Lithion 2 tyre come highly recommended as budget tyres from our esteemed reviewer Jez Ash.
At full whack Jez called the Lithion 2s price "silly," so we'd love to hear what he'd have to say about these excellent tyres selling for £12.95.
The race-ready De Rosa SuperKing isn't the all-out race machine that many of you might expect for this money.
We're not saying that because of the machine's limitations, we're just alluding to the very slightly relaxed geometry of the frame.
The more race focussed King XS has the same length frame as the SuperKing, just ever so slightly lower.
Our tech editor Mat Brett liked what he saw when he took the bike for a spin, so if you're interested check out his write up below:
If you're after a wheel upgrade for your CX machine as you head out on one of your last off-road spring rides of the year, Campagnolo's 35mm-deep rims might give you a little edge.
Rolling in at a hefty 31% discount over at Wiggle, the component giant's wheelset here shouldn't be overlooked.
Finally, protect yourself against those April showers before the sun takes over (we hope) and summer starts proper.
In fact, we'd argue that having a short sleeve shower-proof jersey in your armoury is a good option to have all year round in the UK.
Well the bollards are wearing hi-viz....
Is air pollution the reason why all our southern and urban squirrels now look grey, not red?
The only sense I can think for the idiotic manoeuvre is the driver thought the cyclist was going into the little lane too, where it would have been...
Ebay can be quite good but list it when they have one of their 80% off selling fees weekends (seem to be every second Friday-Monday), or else you...
Same with me! Hope they reset the counter soon, so I can enter the new competition.
Manufacturing defect, send it back for a refund. Could be any number of reasons. Inconvenient but it won't take long to fix.
It's not the same without a lirpa loof reference, but that's going back a few years now
I'm pleased that local businesses seem to be more aware of issues than the council are - maybe they should volunteer to walk/cycle along the path...
That is true but I'm not sure that Shell's sponsorship of cycling will have much of an impact on the climate either....
Totally apropos that the Shell logo appears to be British Cycling up in flames
