If you're not a regular DealCatcher reader kitting yourself out with decent cycling gear can be arduous. For the uninitiated there are pit falls of pricing, quality, and value that are always waiting to gobble up the unsuspecting punter.
Fortunately, with the DealCatcher's steady hand we'll see you over those pitfalls, and safely to the promised land of comfortable, quality cycling in great gear for great prices.
Today's edition of salvation via cycling deals comes to you from Decathlon, Ribble Cycles, and Evans Cycles.
We've got jerseys - in the shape of BTwin's excellent 700 jersey - bib shorts - in the shape of Castelli's Free Aero Race Bib Shorts - and bikes - in the shape of Fuji's cyclocross-ready Sportif 1.1.
All three of these products have received road.cc reviews - and excellent ones at that - as well as massive discounts from their respective retailers.
First up: Decathlon's BTwin 700 Cycling Jersey.
The road.cc review which you can read below called the 700 jersey "another good value garment... [that's] well made, nicely cut, and breathable."
The jersey got an 8/10 while it was here for review, and our man Ash Quinlan said that it was enhanced by the low price tag.
Now that price tag is even lower, the enhancement must be even better. Right?
Bib shorts don't always come cheap, but if you ride a lot the expensive ones are very often worth that extra bit of cash.
These Castelli bibs are no different. Our tech editor Dave Arthur sung their praises when he reviewed them; giving the shorts a 9/10.
He said: "with the comfortable Progetto X2 insert, very few seams and widely spaced bib straps, Castelli's Free Race Aero bib shorts are exceptionally good."
The final piece of today's DealCatcher collection is Fuji's Sportif 1.1 cyclocross bike.
We reviewed last year's 2015 model, and our man Dave Atkinson sung its praises.
The bike rolled away with an 8/10 and he called it a "really good multi-purpose road disc bike that's well specced and comfortable."
I for one am happy to suggest dubwises' language makes me strongly suspect they are discrimination adjacent.
Why would you think that he's a vigilante unless you don't understand the meaning of the word? "Activist" is probably the word you meant.

🤔 I bought the Allez Elite with 105 groupset for £1000 in 2021. Seems a very steep increase in price for barely any gains
Fantastic ride by Roglic specially after dropping his chain on that insane climb
Er. No. I don't think I'll chance it.
The Expanse is superb - hard sci-fi that has realistic space battles. The first few episodes suffer from poor sound mixing, but it gets better.
Friends of Woodhouse Moor are hardly representative of the local population. They are a fringe group made up from few sad busy bodies. If they want...
I really want to like Rapha shorts but can't get on with the seam/split in the middle of the chamois....
