Hey.

Just torn my 2 year old aldi lightweight cycling jersey, and now in desperate need of a suitable replacemnet.
I got 2 jerseys from aldi this year, but they are no where near as lightweight as the one they are replacing, and they seem to have shrunk a size or two over the years ( a general complaint about aldi cycling clothing).

I normally absolutely melt in any heat on my commute, so really appreciate the full lightweight ones, but can't find any at the moment in my price range (~£20-25) that are available for a lanky sod with a 46" chest...

Anyone seen any around, links would be greatly appreciated.

Ta.

    Ebay? (picked up some tidy retro ones for not much)

    Decathlon? (always good value)

    If you can wait a couple of weeks buy direct from China off Ali Express or similar. Got a couple of sets for commuting and quality is decent.

    I'm scrabbling around ebay looking. The Decathlon stuff is ok across the chest, but way too short in the body :(

    Good point, I'd just put an alixexpress order in for some electrical components, should have thought.
    Variation in sizing worries me a little, especially if you can't return it easily.

    Can you shrink the manmade fibres used in cycling jerseys?

    Sounds like too many pies to me, :lol::wink:

    Oh, its' definitely a case of too many pies ;)
    But the old aldi one is bigger than the new one, so would have to stretch manmade fibres ;)

    Ohh, good spot, thank you.
    They also have a nice selection of brewery tops, which are a little more expensive, but very, very tempting!
