    Clever looking thing - assuming it can be refilled...?

    I assumed it couldn't be, but for 3 quid worth a go.

    oooh - I fancy one of those pens...

    Have loads of Aldi cycling clothese from the past, still wear a couple of bits - only reason I dont wear the others is because I have nicer stuff now, but it is perfectly adequate and never had any problems. Would keep the receipt if you buy a pump as some have been known to be faulty.

    I'd be surprised if it couldn't be, bit expensive for a little bit of oil.

    I've been using a syringe from an ink refil pack, works a treat even with heavy gear oil.

    Like pens that cost 3 quid are a bit expensive for a bit of ink? I'm not surprised that most of the Pens in WH Smith's can't be refilled for example.

    I see my gripe about Mens Small sizes still applies to most of the stuff - and that compression baselayer only goes down to a Mens Large! - are all the male German cyclists big buggers then?

    This slim short-censored won't be breaking down the doors at opening time this sunday then...

    Size-ist swines! :roll:

    Cheers Natrix!
    These are quite good for the fledgling cyclists I know who won't wear the stuff out so easily. I'm also a fan of their cycling shoes- you won't really find cheaper around. Lidl's cycle stand is pretty good too when they do it!

    I do hope they've improved their cycle shorts though- I bought a couple for my short commute to save wearing out my usual pairs, and they were not the best for doing more than 15 or so miles at a time...
