Has anyone had any dealings with
They have a good site and seem to be the only ones offering some of the Hincapie Sportswear range.
I've seen good reviews on the clothing from American sites.

    I haven't used alwaysriding, but I have a few bits of Hincapie kit. It's fairly comparable to Nalini / Moa Sport or Biemme, but not quite as good as Santini or Vermarc.

    The sizes are slightly bigger than the normal European ones. You may need to drop a size from your usual size, especially in the jerseys.
  • I've bought several items (sombrio and twin six stuff) from them with no problems. They seem to be a good professional mail order service.

    I've used them and think they offer an excellent service. I ordered a Hincapie item a couple of weeks ago and they emailed me after placing my order to recommend a different size based on my previous orders.

    When the jacket came it fitted perfectly but I didn't like it so returned it and was quickly refunded. I'd use them again.

    Thanks for feedback. I think i'll give them an order.
    I like the website, with stock levels for each item.
    Takes out the hassle of whether goods ordered are in stock or not.
  • Top guys.

    Their office is just down the road from mine, and they've usually delivered within an hour of me placing an order!

    Very friendly and have been great when I ordered stuff in the wrong size.
  • I've bought some Solo kit from them before. Ordered around 2pm on Friday, arrived before 9am on Saturday, so I was quite impressed!

    I ordered a bargain (£80 off) raceface jacket and couple of buffs.

    Good fast delivery, zero complaints.
