    Is this Aldi stuff actually any good? I've looked at stuff in there before, but it's just been cheap shapeless tat.
  • It all gets a bit 'Methodist jumble sale' at Aldi on cycling gear mornings :wink:

    If anyones going to Accrington Aldi on Thursday morning, I'll be the fat bald speccy guy with the thousand mile stare outside the doors at 08:50. :P :lol:

    Yes and no. Depends what you want it for really. If you commuter a lot and want to keep your best stuff nice then yes its good for that. Last year a few of us in the office I used to work in bought some stuff. Consensus was some good some bit pants. If your interested the results were

    Jerseys - good
    Gloves and socks - great
    Tights - censored . Like you said poorly fitting.
    Cycling - The pastime of spending large sums of money you don't really have on something you don't really need.
  • Aldi are also selling ex Discovery and Astana riders :wink:

    Contador on isle three and strangly they've put Vino in the pharmacy section.

    What's the crack with the socks?

    Are they a must have??

    Winter cycling gloves look like worth a go, Winter cycling trousers looked potentially wortwhile for me and the missus, thinking normal style not bib - anyone got these, and are they any good?

    Also fancied a couple of cycling caps, and maybe a couple of the wall bracket thingies.

    Cheers

  • but boy you have to be quick . I got ther at 12.30 on thursday and the shop was deserted but for a huddle of a dozen cyclist pouring over the scraps of cycling stuff left! I managed to get an all black jacket fo 14.99 and I'm rally impressed with it. for the money its actually quite tehnical with a back , pocket , grippers, good close cut etc. shame i missed out on the tops as they look quite good for 6.99 and perfect for winter commutes - they only had small and XL left.
