The DealCatcher's sniffed out a particularly good deal over at Decathlon for you today, in the shape of a BTwin bike that's even more value for money than BTwin bikes usually are!
After we're done marveling at the wonder that is Decathlon's pricing habits, we head over to Ribble Cycles to tuck in to a terrific deal on a Topeak Track Pump that's currently sitting at a 20% discount.
Finally, the folks over at Science in Sport are up to their usual discounty tricks; they're offering you 50% off a bundle of their wonderful REGO Recovery Protein!
We've seen plenty of BTwin's Triban range over the last couple of years. Every time one of them has passed over our review desk, it's left with an incredibly strong score and a reviewer in absolute awe of the performance to price tag ratio.
Which is why we can't help but set the alert systems to DEALCON 1 whenever we find out a Triban bikes been discounted even further.
The Triban 540, featured above, came into road.cc towers in its flat bar form. We did a first look then, and liked what we saw.
The bike itself isn't dissimilar to the slightly more entry level Triban 520 which we reviewed and praised to the high heavens last year.
They share a frame, but the 540 comes equipped with Shimano's improved 105 groupset. It's a fantastically nippy bike, and you really can't beat it for value.
While we're talking about products that perform well above their price point, Topeak's Joe Blow Track Pump range have traditionally done just that too.
We reviewed the Joe Blow 1 back in 2009, and marvelled at its performance and build quality for such a low price tag - £30.
This is the improved Joe Blow Max II. An analogue pressure gauge reads to 160psi max, the duel head is compatible with Schrader, Dunlop and Presta valves, and the oversized steel barrel will keep the pumping easy on your arms.
Finally, Science in Sport's REGO Recovery Protein is the perfect foil for your increased riding frequency now the weather's improving.
The recovery protein will make getting back in the saddle the day after a long and difficult ride significantly easier, it'll also help you build some much-needed leg muscle; win/win, right?
While we've not tested the protein powder, we had fantastic things to say about their REGO Recovery Protein Bars.
