Hi All,

Before I start, I've used Chinese Kit before so I don't want to open up the whole Real vs. Fake argument.

I want one kit in particular, Raleigh, and as no one else stocks it, the seller Fineou is my only option.
My only problem with him(?) is the bibshort pad, not sure what to make of it. There's a pic down the bottom.

Here's the link: http://bit.ly/1h5Y3IS

So has anyone got any experience with the kit and can comment on comfort?

Thanks,
Cormac

    I have been using a pair of 'Scott' cheap chinese Bibs this winter - the Coolmax Pad on mine is surprisingly good ! Infact its the best pad comfort wise of all my kit. Looks thicker than the one on yours however-could be wrong. Has the 'wings' on the side that helps - some don't.

    I tried this once. I paid £15 posted for a pair of Cannondale tights and long sleeve jersey over 2 years ago ,,,,,,still not arrived

    Our club shorts from Italy have a coolmax pad in, this better than the top of the range dhb pro pad I had, better wicking and slightly more dense.

    I've been trying to find more shorts with this pad in. Can you send the link to the Scott?
  • No help to you but FYI, I have bought several shirts from Fineou and they were good quality and fit, better than a £50 jersey I have, and all for less than £15 delivered. I'm not a great fan of copied goods , I just wish they would start doing their own range of stuff without the copied logos which I dont really want anyway.
    Hills do make I sweat a lot

    This is the seller but the listings for the bibs have all ended now unfortunately.

    This was the Chinese Manufacturer Website (wouldnt use IMO) : http://www.cscwear.com/index.php/long-s ... -wear.html
    This was the Similar item (NOTE Tights are NOT Bibs anymore) : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251366845072

    But the pad was Coolmax and a decent thickness (light blue) + comfortable.
