So, with the UCI Cyclocross World Championships, and all the motordoping drama that came with it, cyclocross season came to an end.
Well, it feels like it came to something of a premature end, especially if you live in a country like the UK where the weather conditions suit 'cross racing almost all year round.
With that in mind, it's well worth exploring the end of season cyclocross bike sales, after all, there are plenty of CX bikes that work fantastically as foul weather commuters.
The one the DealCatcher's picked up today doesn't quite fit that particular category of bike, but it's a stunning deal regardless.
This is an unusual one to offer you roadies. The Pinnacle Arkose Singlespeed has been dubbed a road bike, it looks like a road bike, but it’s a singlespeed cyclocross adventure bike extraordinaire that sits quite close to its mountain bike cousins
Big 40c WTB Nano Comp tyres hang from a full carbon tapered fork, a 38T chain ring and an Andel 17T Sproket cassette will keep you moving, and the frame upon which all of this action takes place is the same one that we gave 8/10 to when we reviewed the Arkose 2 cyclo-cross bike back in May 2014.
All round, for this price, you’ll struggle to find a better machine to fulfill your springtime adventure pangs.
oardman - the brand, not the man - has recently announced a new range of affordable cycling clothing.
At the same time Boardman - again, the brand - has slashed the prices of their current range of cycling kit over at Halfords.
Arguably the best deal amongst this slew of bargains are the Boardman Women’s Bib Shorts. At a 65% discount you’ll be getting a mid range, comfortable pair of cycling shorts for the unbelievable price of £12.
The high end Coolmax chamois pad along with the Qwik-Dri fabric and silicone grippers will keep you comfortable, while the reflective details will help keep you seen and hopefully safe.
If you missed last week’s Decathlon DealCatcher takeover, don’t worry. All of those deals are still available, and all you have to do to take advantage of them is follow the link below.
This baselayer slipped through the net last Thursday and didn’t make it to the final cut for the takeover. That’s not to say it’s not a fantastic deal, beccause it is.
How do we know? Well, we reviewed it a couple of years back. Our man Stuart Kerton called it comfortable and well-fitting.

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.
