The DealCatcher's back with some more slamming deals as we prepare for our move towards milder autumnal conditions.
Sure, it might seem pessimistic, but here at road.cc we beileive it's better to be prepared, which is why today's DealCatcher features items that'll see you safely through the autumn months.
Ribble's 7005 Audax 105 SE is this week's unbelievable Bike of the Week. A Shimano 105 carrying bike for under £700 is unheard of, so have a read if you're interested.
Today's second deal is Castelli's Perfetto Light 2 which is perfect for British weather at this time of year. It's not too hot, not too cold, and has enough adverse weather protection to give you peace of mind.
Our final deal is HUMP's Respro bag cover, which adds a touch of style to the usual blindingly hi-viz offerings from the brand. Plus it's a bargain at 44% off at Cycle Store.
Ribble calls it the "perfect winter training bike," we call it an all-round fantastic bargain road bike that'll see you through tough conditions whether you're a brand new rider or an old hand.
Carrying Shimano's RS010 wheelset and 105 gearset the bike is spectacularly well specced for this price tag.
We'd recommend you take this number into serious consideration if you're in the market for a first bike or if you're looking for something to bash about this winter.
If you're overheating in your Gabba jersey, or you're looking for something a little more substantial in this mixed 'summer', Castelli's Perfetto Light 2 might well be up your street.
The jersey-cum-short-sleeved-jacket can do a lot of things. It breathes well so it'll keep you from overheating on those tough climbs, but it also carries a lightweight version of Castelli's Windstopper fabric that'll protect you from any unwelcome breezes.
We absolutely loved the first generation Perfetto when it came our way for review, and having another option for slightly milder conditions is more than welcome.
Our final deal of the day comes from HUMP with an eye on what we expect will be a rainy autumn ahead.
Once all these summer holidays are done, we'll be reacquainting ourselves with commutes. Rainy ones, probably.
Getting all your gear to work in one, dry, piece can be challenging, especially if you don't want to shell out hundreds of pounds for specialist luggage.
HUMP's protective covers do a great job of giving you that security for a crazily smaller price.
We liked the brand's lighted Vegas cover when it came in for review, and we expect this slightly more understated version would perform just as well.
