    Fairly normal price for a decent quality jersey that isn't made in the Far East I would have thought.

    The King don't quibble about spending £59.95! That's as long as you are the King, you'd look a bit of muppet walking up any hill with that on.

    T- shirt? Are you losing your mind? It's the KOM jersey. Now if you think your not worth it, well step aside. The King is dead, long live the King.

    at ground level, its a tee shirt with a zip and 3 pockets on the back, how can it be valued at £60 :shock:

    my altura black/red jersey is a nice tee shirt with a zip and 3 pockets also, but it cost me £39, i cant see how that kom stunna is worth 20 quid more :?
  • i had same trouble finding a jersey i like without spending insane amount of money. i did settle for a jersey on wiggle.co.uk if you havent checked on there already. has some pretty decent stuff.

    £39 for an Altura jersey? That's a rip off.

    You should buy a Altura top and stick some dots on it yourself. That would be lush.

    Fast too.

    Be interested to know what bike you ride and what wheels and tyres you use :D
    That is reasonable price for a quality top.
    Ok it has three pockets but quality tops fit well and last, you normally get what you pay for with cycle clothing, though I would not go as far as to pay full whack for assos or rapha as some other makes are just as good but cheaper.

    Get it for your birthday/Xmas.

    That way it's a pressie & it won't matter that's it was a bit pricey. I just did the same with Foska.
  • MountainMonsterMountainMonster Posts: 7,423
    60 bucks is not a bad price for a jersey. I just bought a livestrong one that was on sale for 80 euros here. Sometimes you gotta pay for good kit, rather than skimping and getting the cheapest. You only live once anyways!
  • Monty DogMonty Dog Posts: 20,614
    ^ Livestrong jersey, now that is a rip off unless you're pleased at paying for Armstrong's jet fuel and legal bills?

    As for Exteondo - class and being a Vuelta jersey separates you from the wannabees like above who only think that cycling involves a 3 week race around France in July :roll:

    There's some rather tasty kit there - as I'm a lycra virgin, is the difference between the £70-90 kit like this, and the Endura/Altura/whatever kit in the £30-50 bracket that big?

    I'm investing in a load of kit next week - pedals, shoes, shorts, jersey, etc - so genuinely interested.

    I'd sort of decided on a Foska jersey - but seeing this kit makes me think otherwise. Shorts I'm completely undecided on. All my work suits are braces-only, so I'm thinking a bibshort would be a better bet.

    if i want a read that is guaranteed to have me laughing like a quivering wreck, i read an assos price list. i saw one of their products that was essentially a wife beater sleeveless tee shirt and they wanted £120 for it :shock: :shock:

    anybody who is gullible enough to pay those prices :roll: for assos snake oil :roll:
