Looking for a bargain? Here are the latest great deals we've found, including a whopping 35% off the classic Garmin Edge 500 GPS, a Colnago for £800 and some bargain overshoes for those planning ahead.
Most GPS units around the £100 mark tend to lack useful training features like the ability to use a heart rate monitor or read from a power meter. Garmin's Edge 500 GPS cycling computer does all that an a lot more, but usually costs £170. As part of its 12 Days of Deals promotion, Evans Cycles is knocking them out for a mere £109.99.
Reduced from £100 in Evans' 12 Days of Deals and available in all sizes, this is a killer deal on a massively popular jacket that's festooned with reflectives to keep you visible at night.
Twenty-five gels for under a tenner!
High 5 Iso Gel is a natural real juice energy gel formulated so you don’t need to drink extra water. lt’s light and not overly sweet, in fact more like a drink than a gel. Each sachet contains 26g of pure carbohydrate for instant energy. With a dash of real juice for a fresh natural taste, IsoGel Plus is easy to swallow when your mouth is dry and it’s exceptionally easy on the stomach.
Evans is also knocking 80 percent off remaining stocks of Surface casual clothing, though the range of sizes and colours available on some items is a bit restricted.
Arguably the most prestigious heritage bike brand, Colnago was the choice of the great Eddy Merckx for a large part of his career, during which time Ernesto Colnago was his personal mechanic. This is Colnago's entry-level road bike, with a hydroformed aluminium frame, carbon fibre fork and Shimano's revamped 10-speed Tiagra shifting.
Reduced from £2,500 this is a great price for a carbon fibre-framed Colnago. The frame is designed for endurance riders and the components, centred round Shimano's 11-speed Ultegra shifting, are chosen for reliability and performance on long days in the saddle.
Huzzah! A commuting bikes that actually comes with mudguards so you don't arrive at the office with a wet arse. Wiggle's knocking 32% off the £600 list price of the Defense WR2.1, and it'll serve just as nicely for weekend excursions into the lanes as for the daily blat to work.
Round-town transport with verve. The Hoy Hoy Rats' toned-down look is inspired by Italian commuter bikes camouflaged with black tape to hide high-quality frames. Marked down from £854.99 it's a great deal on a perfect urban speedster.
Winter is coming. Yes, we know it's not even high summer yet, but if you like a) a bargain and b) planning ahead these overshoes, reduced from £39.99, should be right up your (cold and rainy) street.
You better move quickly to grab this deal it ends on Monday June 1. The Cube Agree GTC has a lightweight carbon fibre frame hung with a blend of Shimano Ultegra 11-speed and 105 components, rolling on Mavic Aksium wheels.
JE James only has a couple of sizes left, but they're not silly, so if a 56cm or 58cm frame fits you, take a look.
Decent road bikes for under £300 are rare, but with a price drop from £379.99, the Dawes Etape definitely fits the bill. The model was created to celebrate the 2014 Grand depart of the Tour de France and you get an aluminium alloy frame, Shimano 7-speed gears and a compact chainset.
The Dawes Etape Limited Edition would be a great first proper road bike for a young rider.
Reduced from £600, this is a great deal on a quick, tight-handling race-style road bike that'll be loads of fun zooming around the lanes.
We've also set up some special discounts for team road.cc members, which you can join here. If you haven't joined you wont be able to see the pages.
Acknowledged by the Telegraph as a leading cycling journalist, John Stevenson has been writing about bikes and cycling for over 30 years since discovering that people were mug enough to pay him for it rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work.
He was heavily involved in the mountain bike boom of the late 1980s as a racer, team manager and race promoter, and that led to writing for Mountain Biking UK magazine shortly after its inception. He got the gig by phoning up the editor and telling him the magazine was rubbish and he could do better. Rather than telling him to get lost, MBUK editor Tym Manley called John’s bluff and the rest is history.
Since then he has worked on MTB Pro magazine and was editor of Maximum Mountain Bike and Australian Mountain Bike magazines, before switching to the web in 2000 to work for CyclingNews.com. Along with road.cc editor Tony Farelly, John was on the launch team for BikeRadar.com and subsequently became editor in chief of Future Publishing’s group of cycling magazines and websites, including Cycling Plus, MBUK, What Mountain Bike and Procycling.
John has also written for Cyclist magazine, edited the BikeMagic website and was founding editor of TotalWomensCycling.com before handing over to someone far more representative of the site's main audience.
He joined road.cc in 2013 and these days he lives in Cambridge where the lack of hills is more than made up for by the headwinds.
