We're not sure if you've read, but cyclocross has been in the news in a big way this week. Now, we don't think there's anything untoward going on inside the seat tube of the Raleigh RX below, but you'll have to buy one to find out.
Of course, if you're going to go looking for - or installing your own - hidden motors in cyclocross bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, you'll need some tools. Fortunately, the DealCatcher's got you covered there. Over at Hargroves their Essence Tool Kit from IceToolz has seen a 33% discount.
On a totally unrelated note, Leisure Lakes Bikes have 30% off their rather charming looking selection of Castelli Gregge 12 Socks.
Check 'em out.
We reviewed the RX Race's older brother back in 2013. We gave its earlier incarnation a solid 8/10, if that can give you any idea what to expect from this 2015 edition.
The modern day RX will see you through harsh weather on your daily commute and deep mud on a cyclocross course.
We can't testify as to the ease of which a motor could be installed into the seat tube, but I guess that's something you can explore for yourselves.
We jested earlier that you'd need tools to install a hidden motor into your bike.
Of course you'll need tools, but maybe not these tools.
These tools are for everything from repairs, fettles, tweeks, and replacements. Below is a list of the bits you'll get with your incredibly cheap purchase:
SIS/Shimano BB Tool (11B1); 8 Groove Spoke wrench (12F8); Cassette Tool (09C1); Crank Puller 04C2); Chain Tool (61C2); 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 & 6mm Hex Key Set (36Q1); 6 adjustable wrench (25H6); 8mm Hex key (35V8); 8 & 10mm open ended spanner; 2 x Flat head screw drivers; 2 x Cross head screw drivers; 1/2 Drive adapter; Hollowtech 2/MegaExo BB Tool (11F1); Chain Whip; Pedal & Box Wrench (34A2); & a Nylon Tyre Lever Set.
