Hi

Quite new to road cycling and was on the lookout for some better kit now I am putting the miles in. Came across this on BMC's own website....seems very cheap and wondered if anyone had ordered to know how good this replica stuff is and am I likely to pay any charges as the gear is shipped the swiss firm. 2 jerseys and 2 bib shorts with delivery for 45 quid seems a bargain to me..am I missing something?

    Am I missing something, how do you pay? The website checkout says there is only one payment method available, but then doesn't give you an option to enter your credit card details

    Worked it out - slightly bizzare system where "continue" does nothing but the "tick-box, confirm" gets you to enter your credit card.

    The shorts look worth a punt

    Oh dear I am tempted....Will others realise I'm riding a CAAD9 if I wear this outfit? :wink:

    Hope the size guide are right as I just ordered a medium set - £26 posted can be bad, just got to wait on an SLR01 to be reduced by about 50% and maybe I could get one :wink:

    I ordered some for my son last autumn. Arrived OK, acceptable quality for the price, but came up a little smaller than expected. May be he grew, but other manufacturers kit of nominally the same size is a little larger, don't know if this is true across the whole size range. Does come in a nice bag though.

    I bought a set last year, for the price it is excellent, the only problem I found was having the jersey and shorts the same size. Large shorts were good top was slightly baggier than I wanted.

    Only worn it once so far so if anyone finds their top is too small with a medium we could do a swop?

    I like mine - matches the bike!

    I ordered Medium. The shorts are pretty tight and the vest is a little small.

    I had to send a few email reminders, before they arrived.
