If you're after cycling deals, you've come to the right place. The road.cc DealCatcher's spent another morning out searching the depths of the world wide web for a selection of cycling deals that'll make your day - hopefully.
First up is a deal you might recognise, but it's such excellent value, we thought we'd remind those of you who will be umm-ing and ahh-ing over it and those of you who might have missed it.
Orbea's 2016 Orca M35SE has had an exclusive set of discounts over at Cycle Surgery, and it keeps getting cheaper. Having received a massive 30% discount - much higher than most 2016 model bikes - it really is an exceptional offer.
Following that Radial Cycles have a stunning deal on Shimano's 105 11-speed chain - yep, that's a market topping 39% discount.
And finally, over at Chain Reaction Cycles you can get your hands on a road.cc favourite Lezyne KTV Front Drive at 41% off.
We like Orcas here at road.cc. No, not the big black and white sea mammal, Orbea's range of racey road bikes.
Back in 2014 we reviewed this Orca's more expensive Shimano Di2 running brother. That review is very handily accessible below, if you're interested what Orbea can do, though this iteration of the Orca range isn't as well equipped in the component department.
That said, the M35SE featured here, runs Shimano's 105 groupset, carries a full carbon steerer, a Vision Team 25mm wheelset, a Prologo Kappa Evo saddle, and FSA Gossamer Compact handlebars, which in our opinion is nothing to scoff at for under £1500.
Sure, it's not as racey as the Orca we reviewed in 2014, but it should be right up your street if you're looking for a full carbon ride that'll be quick, comfortable, and incredibly good value.
When we reviewed Shimano's 105 5800 groupset we nearly wet ourselves.
It's a stunning groupset for an absolute steal of a price.
The chain didn't escape our broad compliments in the review, which you can read in full below.
To help you though, we've pulled out the relevant paragraph here:
"Chain width is now just 5.62mm for the latest 105 version and it's had a proper revamp too. Taking technology from the HG-X 10-speed off road chain it is now asymmetric with outboard plates designed to aid front and rear shifting. It runs very quietly indeed thanks to Sil-Tec (PTFE) coated inner links and seems to be resisting the build-up of dirt and water so far."
This as cheap as we could find the chain on the websites of the major cycling retailers, though you may be wilier than us.
Chain Reaction Cycles
It looks weird and the tiny part of the device's body that's actually the light looks too small to do anything of use on a dark night, sure, but this strange Star Wars droid-looking thing received a 9/10 road.cc review.
That's right, Lezyne's weird silver post box light here is a road.cc favourite.
Why, you may ask. Well, we'll let our reviewer Mike Stead do most of the talking, but know that its size, longevity, and brilliant LED set this little guy apart from the rest of the competition.
