Chain Reaction Cycles
33% off Raleigh Militis Elite 2015 Road Bike
WAS £999.99 | NOW £674.99
The Raleigh Militis Elite’s kinesium aluminium alloy frame gives this bike the weight of carbon at aluminium pricing. In what Raleight are calling the latest in aluminium technology, you’ll get the speed, stiffness, and responsiveness of carbon.
Other than fantastic aluminium framing, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this Militus Elite from Chain Reaction. £674.99 gets you internal cabling, a carbon fork and a Shimano Apex groupset, all weighing in under 9kg.
30% off Scott Solace 15 Disc Compact 2015 Road Bike
WAS £2599.00 | NOW £1819.00
The Scott Solace over at Hargroves is a piece of machinery which wants you to ride it all the time.
Really, the carbon frame has been designed to work incredibly in both its Power Zone and its Comfort Zone, giving you superb responsiveness when you want to kick up a steep gradient or away from the pack, while the geometry is set-up to keep you comfortable and strong on long rides.
Also equipped with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, the Scott Solace will keep you safe in the wet, dry, cold and warm.
Running Shimano Ultegra, with a 105 casette, the Solace is a solid buy, especially as it sits so far under the £2000 mark.
35% off Louis Garneau CB Carbon 2 Bib Short + an extra 20%
WAS £99.99 | NOW £64.99
Finally, Evans. Not only are Crawley-based retailers offering 35% off their stock of Louis Garneau CB Carbon 2 bib shorts in the full range of sizes, they’ve slashed 20% extra off of them.
That extra 20% extends to their huge range of discounted bib shorts and jerseys. There are some even bigger bargains to be found in a huge assortment of strange sizes and colours. Just follow this link, and remember to include the code CJS20
Louis Garneau say that their CB Carbon 2 bib shorts and their highly stretchable and compressive CB Carbon + LYCRA and Endurexx fabrics help increase the blood flow to your leg muscles, reduce muscle vibration, and and help to keep you riding longer.
Whether or not that is entirely true, we’re not sure, because we’ve not actually reviewed these shorts on road.cc. We have however reviewed the Louis Garneau Course Race Bib Shorts, and the Louis Garneau Course Superlegerra Bib Shorts, both of which saw favourable reviews.
Make of that what you will.
