The week has been a little bit shorter what with Easter Bank Holidays.

It finally feels like we've turned the corner towards sunshine rides and we've even been able to get out on the bike after work this week! Lucky us!

It's Paris Roubaix this weekend so sit back, grab a Belgian Blonde (beer) and have a look through these brilliant deals.

 

Save 45% on these Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 Front & Rear Derailleur + STi Levers

Shimano Ultegra Di2 6870 Shift Kit
£399.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

We love a deal on Di2, especially this 'older' 11-speed Ultegra stuff. The shifting is seriously worth the upgrade.

You'll need the internal seatpost batteryJunction Box A and Junction Box B, but they're readily available second hand or heavily discounted.

Cables will depend on your bike setup. We use 300mm cables from the shifters to Junction A, under the stem on a 40cm handlebar.

If you've got Di2 bars like these from Pro, you can use the bar-end Junction box, for clean-looking fully hidden cables.

The best thing about Di2 is that it's so simple to set up. Just plug it all together and set the limit screws. We rarely need to adjust the shifting.

 

Garmin Edge 520 GPS HRM/Speed/Cadence Bundle 31% off

Garmin Edge 520 Heart Rate & Speed/Cadence Bundle
£239.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Wiggle have a spend and save sale on for Easter. Get your kit before the codes hop away!

Included in the sale is this Garmin Edge 520 with heart rate monitor and Speed & Cadence sensors too.

This Edge 520 doesn't get the touchscreen of the 820 or 1030. That's often a bonus, as we've found out.

In poor weather conditions and especially when it rains, the touchscreen becomes a little temperamental.

Road.cc Review: Garmin Edge 520

You still get a great colour screen that's easy to read in bright sunlight and the connectivity is massive. On each ride, we have our phones, HRM and power meters all connected just by switching on the Garmin. It's super simple.

The codes you need include all the items in this sale SAVE £15 OFF £100 EASTER1 - SAVE £40 OFF £200 EASTER2

 

Fight April Showers with 45% off this Endura FS260 Pro Rain Cape

Endura FS260 Pro Adrenaline Race Cape
£42.89
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Even though winter is done, a packable rain cape makes a sound investment.

This Endura FS260 is everything you need in a packable waterproof. It's got great fit, superb waterproofing and great breathability.

As Endura is based in Scotland, it's fair to say they see their fair share of rain. 

Road.cc Review: Endura FS260-Pro Adrenaline Race Cape

This FS260 Pro race cape is designed to be a close fitting jacket for racing in. This close fit makes it ideal for faster riding.

The jacket is simply a shell, meaning that it rolls up into a pocketable size for ominous-looking days.

 

Dreamy Bikecation Holiday Deals - Costa Daurada

Costa Dorada with Bikecation
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Bikecation are back and this time, they're opening our eyes to a new destination!

We've been doing a little research into the Costa Daurada and it looks incredible.

The climate is the first thing that we noticed, with some late spring sunshine being very welcome right now!

With the clement weather, the roads are also buttery smooth. The terrain is also ideal for cycling with flat coastal roads looking ideal for some easier rides to a beachside cafe.

If you want to do some serious training to tackle mighty KoMs, the roads pointing inland rise gently, topping out at 1200m.

That's not too high to get seriously bad weather and it's also not too high to make simply breathing a struggle!

 

Save 30% on this Levi's Casual Commuter Jacket

Levi's Commuter Pro Echelon Windbreaker
£77.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

Keep it casual on the commute with this windbreaker from Levi's.

To say it's spring would be a stretch. On the days that it's dry, we're still reaching for a windbreaker for our rides into town.

This Commuter Pro Echelon Windbreaker is ideal for both on and off the bike.

The jacket is constructed with a slightly dropped rear hem which gives better coverage on the bike than a standard jacket but doesn't look out of place off the bike.

Road.cc Buyer's Guide: Casual Cycling Commuter Wear

The fabric is 100% Polyamide, a lightweight double-layer nylon that is windproof. The material is also water repellent, making it ideal for spring showers.

Should the sun decide to make an appearance, the jacket is low bulk and packs away easily into a rucksack.

Call us fashionable, but we this goes perfectly with Levi's 511 Slim Fit Commuter Jeans!

 

33% off this Merlin Nitro SL Di2 Carbon Road Bike

Merlin Nitro SL Di2 Carbon Road Bike
£1999.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

With Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Fulcrum wheels, this is a great deal at under 2 grand.

Want to make you money go further? This Merlin Nitro was a Ridley Helium SL before being re-painted, giving it proven race pedigree.

Over at road.cc, Stu Kerton got to test the mechanical version and was suitably impressed with the value on offer.

Road.cc Review: Merlin Nitro SL 2017

The frame is constructed with 60/40/30 Ton High Modulus carbon and was raced by the pros only a couple of seasons ago. You'd rarely expect this kind of performance at this price.

Road.cc Review: Fulcrum Racing Quattro Wheelset

Stu was also impressed by the all-day comfort. That's partly thanks to the wheels which have a nice wide profile to support wider tyres. With a 35mm depth, they still spin up well whilst offering an aero advantage over standard rims.

Road.cc Review: Shimano Ultegra 6800

The Shimano Ultegra 6870 Di2 groupset is the main attraction here though. It's a groupset that is flawless in our eyes, having owned it for the past 2 years.

It's also an easy system to add power to. All you need to do is swap out the left crank for something like this 4iiii 6800 power meter.

 

Save 29% on this Thule RoundTrip Transition Hard Case with Assembly Stand

Thule RoundTrip Transition Hard Case with Assembly Stand
£424.99
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

An easy to pack hard case with an integrated assembly stand.

The Transition case is simply genius, with the best solution to assembly/disassembly we've seen.

This Transition allows you to strip your bike easily on the included work stand, which then packs into the box for the reassembly at the other end. Anyone who has fumbled around trying to build a bike in a hotel room will know the frustration.

The box is made of hardened plastic, giving the best protection for delicate frames. Once in, the wheels are housed next to the frame in padded bags, with enough space for plenty of kit.

 

Huge Rotor InPower Sale at Merlin

Looking for a power meter that can handle UK conditions? These Rotor units are tough and accurate.

There are options for pretty much every setup and there's also left only options for the lowest cash outlay.

Rotors InPower was the first power meter to properly support non-round chainrings. It's not a surprise as Rotor has been making elliptical rings for years.

There are a few options to get through, all of which you can find here. We'll take a look at the highlights!

 

Rotor InPower 3D+ Power Meter Crankset
£572.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

The 110BCD 5 arm spider makes choosing chainring pretty straightforward. We've used Rotor sets in the past and been very impressed with the shifting.

This system will fit any 30mm bottom bracket. If you've got a 24mm axel currently, there are even options for you too with WheelsMFG providing excellent solutions and tech help

 

Rotor InPower 3D+ Left Crank Power Meter
£472.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

If you've already got a Rotor Crankset, then all you need to do to get power is swap out your existing left crank for this one.

The strain gauges are again located in the axel and the unit will transmit Power, Cadence, Torque, OCA, torque effectiveness (left) pedal smoothness (left).

The rest of the options can be found here!

Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

A high-end activity tracker with loads of performance metrics.

The Fenix 5S is specifically designed for active people that do more than one sport.

Huge 40% off this 2016 GoPro Hero5 Session Camera

GoPro Hero5 Session Camera
£179.00
Commerce content is independent of editorial, and Farrelly Atkinson earns commission from promoted products

This great little unit is unobtrusive and delivers great on-bike footage!

The small size is ideal for mounting on a road bike and the one-button actuation is ideal for quickly starting and stopping recording.

The robustness of the session is ideal. It's waterproof as it stands, with no need for an external case. That means it can be washed off at the same time as our bike.

The best mounting solution that we've found is the K-Edge Out front Garmin mount with the GoPro attachment. We've had ours for nearly 2 years now and it's still looking perfect.

For other angles, 3rd party mounts are the way forward. A case like this, with 50 mounting parts, is ideal for a load of situations.
