The DealCatcher takes a tour of three of the country's top retailers - tuck in while the deals are still hot!...

Bouncing about the warehouses of Chain Reaction Cycles, Hargroves Cycles, and Wiggle, the DealCatcher has struck cycling bargain gold - or orange, it seems.

Over at Chain Reaction we've uncovered a Vitus Vitesse EVO Road Bike at a 35% discount, which is a happy coincidence, because we've just published our first look at Vitus' 2016 version of the Vitesse.

Wiggle's warehouse bore a fruitful haul in the jersey department. The dhb ASV Roubaix Long Sleeve Jersey is a product we've reviewed before - it's based on pro team Wiggle-Honda's kit, so it's gotta be pretty high tech, right?

Finally, over at Hargroves Cycles, a little CatEye computer caught our... eye. The Padrone is excellent value for money, and when we reviewed it we liked what we saw - it got a 9/10.

 

Chain Reaction Cycles

Vitus Bikes, early carbon adopters, aluminium frame pioneers in the Eighties, and now part of the Chain Reaction Cycles family offering a huge range of road bikes.

The Vitesse comes in at the top of Vitus' range, sporting Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels and a Shimano Ultegra 11-speed groupset aboard a UCI-approved carbon fibre race frame.

This is last year's model, hence the reduced price, but if you're interested in what the new model feels like, check out our first ride below.

Wiggle

40% off dhb ASV Roubaix Long Sleeve Jersey
WAS £70.00 | NOW £42.00

Wiggle say that their brand dhb's range of ASV clothing is identical to the kit worn by pro riders riding for Wiggle Honda.

There's one obvious difference - the lack of team logos and sponsorships. For the purists amongst you, that'll be a welcome omission, and for the style conscious too - the ASV jersey has quite a striking look to it.

At RRP this jersey sits very close to the top end of dhb's range - which is to be expected for a pro-level piece of kit. However, our reviewer claimed that for the price it's not quite enough  of an improvement on dhb's regular gear to warrant the claim.

Fortunately, following a sizable discount, you can now get your hands on pro-level gear for mid-range prices.

Everybody wins.

​Finally, over at Hargroves you can currently get your hands on what we called the 'perfect non GPS riding companion' for the startling price of £29.99.

The 40% discount will see you get a clean, slim device with a beautifully big display that measures your speed - via an included magnet sensor - total distance, trip distance, elapsed time, as well as your maximum and average speed.

For your money, you won't find a better do-it-all bike computer.

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.
