5 cycling deals on bikes, jerseys, pedals, mudguards + more

The DealCatcher's been busy collecting a huge range of deals for you - including 40% off a Raleigh tourer...

The DealCatcher's travelled far and wide today to bring you a selection of five fantastic cycling deals from across the world wide web.

Starting at good old Chain Reaction, who, it seems, are about to be swallowed up by Wiggle, the DealCatcher's found a Raleigh Maverick Tour-ready road bike at a huge 40% discount.

Following that ProBikeKit have slashed the price of their in-house PBK branded Heritage Jersey by 57%, BuyABike.co.uk have a 47% discount on an Exustar pedal and cleat combo, and if you head over the Merlin Cycles you'll find a 22% saving on a pair of SKS RaceBlade mudguards - which we reviewed and rated highly.

Finally, Zovelo round the DealCatcher off with a 50% saving on a pair of Endura arm warmers - the perfect companion for rides in changing spring weather.

 

Chain Reaction Cycles

40% off Raleigh Maverick Tour Road Bike
WAS £749.99 | NOW £449.99

If you're after a do-it-all commuter, as well as a bike that can handle a century ride or a full weekend schedule  of riding, look no further than the Raleigh Maverick Tour.

This steel framed beauty features a triple ringed Shimano Claris groupset, RSP CX1.0 rums, Tektro 992 Oryx cantilever brakes, and already installed mudguards.

We had a Maverick in for test last year, the top of the range Comp, and our man Jo Burt thoroughly enjoyed it. He said that the Maverick is "ideally specced for smashing through city streets and dealing with all that may throw up." 

From that you can probably take away that the Tour will see you through anything your commute can throw at you, and probably anything any extended ride on UK roads could too.

ProBikeKit

57% off PBK Heritage Vernon Roubaix Jersey
WAS £69.99 | NOW £29.99

It was just this week that we saw Rapha update their retro Classic Jersey but it turns out you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to get your hands on good quality retro gear, if you know where to look.

Over at ProBikeKit, their in-house brand PBK do an excellent range of Heritage Jerseys, of which this long sleeved blue number is one.

The jersey is of Italian heritage, and the quality of the garment reflects that, so much so that the range featured in our Best Cheap Cycling Jerseys buyer's guide - which you can read below.

BuyABike.co.uk

48% off Exustar EPR16 Pedals + Cleats
WAS £25.00 | NOW £12.98

Exustar E-PR16 Keo Style Pedals.jpg

Earlier this wee we featured a very expensive pair of Garmin pedals in our DealCatcher. Those in question - the Vector 2s - received a 9/10 review when we had them in for test. Unsurprisingly, Garmin's involvement in the manufacturing process of those pedals covered the technology side of things - the Vector 2s monitor all sorts of bits of data from your ride.

However, the actual manufacturing of the pedals, that was Exustar, the same guys who make the pedals above.

Here, you can get your hands on a pair of LOOK Keo compatible pedals for 10% of the price of the Garmin Vectors, and they'll do the same job on those climbs, you just won't be able to nerd out on the data afterwards.

Merlin Cycles

22% off SKS RaceBlade Long Version 2 Mudguards
WAS £44.99 | NOW £34.99

The rain's gunna keep coming, we can promise you that. If it lets off for a bit over Spring, chances are we'll have another wet summer. That's just how things are in Britain these days, eh?

You can, of course, protect yourself from the elements in a number of ways. And if you're sat there thinking "I've got through the worst of the winter without mudguards, I'll be fine," you might want to reevaluate. 

Reevaluating in the face of a good deal is as good of a time as any to reevaluate. The SKS RaceBlades are a top quality pair of mudguards. Don't believe me? Check out the review below,  a road.cc 8/10 doesn't lie.

Zovelo

50% off Endura FS260 Pro Arm Warmers
WAS £22.99 | NOW £11.49

Endura FS260 Pro Arm Warmers.jpg

Finally, if you're caught between two minds at the moment before heading out for a ride about what to wear, a pair of arm warmers might give you a helping hand.

If it's too mild for you to commit to a base layer, or you don't fancy overheating in a long sleeved thermal top, arm warmers can give you the perfect mixture of flexibility and protection from the elements.

We know that the Endura FS260 range works, hell, we gave the FS260 bib knickers a 9/10 when they came in for test. So, if you've got any questions about the quality and grip of the fabric, think again.
