Today marks the last Saturday before Black Friday. So what better way to spend it than browsing even more amazing Black Friday cycling deals from the folks at Wiggle.
Wiggle has booked out their second Takeover spot with the Deal Clincher this week to explore the depths of their final week of pre-Black Friday sale items. And, hidden away from the front page, there's a treasure trove of top deals waiting for you.
The biggest discounts have understandably been made on in-house brands like dhb and Verenti, but that's not to do the quality of those deals a disservice. The savings are still stellar.
So, what are you waiting for? Tuck in!
Now that the weather really is beginning to deteriorate you might be seriously considering what you're going to do with your skinny tyred road bike.
Sure, you could invest in some wider tyres or install mudguards. Or you could do the fun thing and invest in an adventure bike.
Cyclocross bikes, like the Verenti Substance here, are fantastic winter commuting options and are a hell of a lot of fun at the same time.
Mr Jon Woodhouse, our editor over at off-road.cc has had a play with the bike already and is currently putting it through its paces on review.
Here's his first impression of what looks to be an incredibly solid cx machine - which at this price seems like an incredible deal!
If you're looking for a training companion that'll help you hit targets, keep you informed about your performance, and perform just as well in the rain, then forget your mates; it's time to invest in a Suunto Ambit 3.
With a customisable watch face, satellite GPS connectivity, a heartrate monitor and two-way smartphone compatibility, the Suunto does everything you'd want from a smart watch-cum-training aid.
You folks love the Vittoria Rubinos.
How do we know? Well, you, our readers spoke up when you were asked what their favourite road tyres. Vittoria's Rubino Pro rolled out with 5th place out of the hundreds of road tyres out there.
Not only are they an incredibly solid pair of road tyres, the stylistic options shouldn't be underestimated by those of you who like your bikes looking as good as you do!
And they now come clincher ready.
Two deals in one here on a bargain 360° reflective jackets.
Regardless of your body shape or gender, this deal is for you. The dhb Flashlight Full Beam Jacket is available in both mens and womens cuts at a huge 40% discount.
The direct link to the Women's version can be found right here.
While this doesn't have the fancy 360° reflectivity going for it, the dhb Flashlight Force is much better equipped to see you through the bad weather ahead.
It's the top specced jacket in the Flashlight range. How has it achieved that ranking, you ask?
Well, it's got a technical three layer construction which is both durable and also accommodates high performance riders through it's slick aerodynamic shape and light weight.
White shoes might seem like a strange recommendation from us here at road.cc at this time of year. Afer all, road gunk is notoriously difficult to get out of kit.
Fortunately these shoes come in black too!
Also, they're great. The full carbon fibre sole and the breathable synthetic upper combines to provide a top performing and highly comfortable shoe for a low price.
If you do decide to settle for the white shoes above, know that there are plenty of ways to protect your shoes at this time of year.
SealSkinz overshoes do a wonderful job at protecting your feet from the cold and your shoes from the horrible stuff that accumulates on tarmac.
We reviewed the Halo Neoprene Overshoes from SealSkinz, which differntiate themselves from these with the addition of an LED in the heel. Our tech editor Dave Arthur gave them a stonking 9/10, saying that they "really do work well."
We're keeping the neoprene theme continuing for our final deal of the day.
If you're looking for warmth and protection from the weather, there's no better glove material than neoprene.
As long as you're willing to pop them into the washing machine after they've got wet on a ride.
These gloves from dhb are quite the bargain right now, which might tempt you to give the material a try.
Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.
Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.
When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
