Anyone recommend a decent place to get inexpensive vintage/ retro cycling kit (for Eroica Britannia)? Prendas cyclismo has some very nice kit, but a bit expensive for something I may not wear often. Ebay has loads of stuff, but most looks a bit ropey. Also, anyone who has done it before, long sleeve or short sleeve Jersey?

    I have to say that you've probably missed the boat for cheap, decent stuff since the the eroica craze multiplied my " never got round to getting rid of it" cupboards' value by a factor of x.
    A lot of the eBay stuff, especially from the regular sellers, is in good condition in my experience. Check the feedback, and if budget is an issue, stay away from the " classic" designs and go for something obscure and continental instead.
