That's a tempting deal, shame you can't use BC discount on top.
Also looks like I would need the C7.


Wouldn't mind one of these, but even at that price it's ridiculous. Looks worth about £30 tops.


Luckily it's not judged on how it looks as it looks a lot like a grey binbag. But it's kept me dry on a four hour wet ride, and packs down to easily fit inside a pocket. I think mine was about £100 off list price and well worth it if you want to ride in all weathers. If you don't then buy a £30 jacket and you'll be back within the hour soaked.

I posted about dotout gear from CRC a week or so back, well I have the gear now, and it's REALLY nice quality kit, and a decent fit - slightly smaller than Castelli I would say, and a bit bigger than Ale.

The Legend long sleeve is a bargain, but alas the small was sadly too big for me, so that is going back.

The pure and hybrid (Inspite of the name is a closer cut than the pure) jerseys are really quality kit though, highly recommended.
Some really interesting and different designs imho, aside from the quality of the material being right up there.

If they were the disc version I'd have been all over them, but they're still over £900 :( .....Would go great on my CR1 rim brake bike though....

Seems legit given the discount is also on Wiggle (and they do price things differently most of the time)

CRC and Wiggle often have different prices, sometimes they will be cheaper at Wiggle even after taking account of BC discount at CRC.

May be a listing error but the Wiggle page only says QR axles are "in the box", no mention of the TA adaptors that are normally bundled with them. Only need QR on my CR1 though...tempted :wink: . In the market for carbon disc wheels really, so will need to pass....

The Aldi cycling gear is up for pre-order online.

Not sure if the rechargeable lights with 3 year warranty would be worth a punt as a back up pair

Curious about how loose a fit the convertible jacket is https://www.aldi.co.uk/men%27s-converti ... 1242288501 and if the front pocket would fit a 6" mobile.

Castelli Alpha ROS Light Jersey at Tweeks Cycles in antracite/black for £105 with a good range of sizes still available

I think its been cheaper than that in the past but haven't seen it that low in a while

https://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/ ... 4cm-frames

Have had this for over 2 weeks - which may be breaking the rules of this forum slightly but never mind! I was startled that this only cost £1500 (less if you are a British Cycling member) despite weighing a mere 7kg and having a SRAM force groupset - not to mention the geometry of the frame and striking looks. Not sure how much longer it is in stock though but with that price I might as well have stolen it!!

Curious about how loose a fit the convertible jacket is https://www.aldi.co.uk/men%27s-converti ... 1242288501 and if the front pocket would fit a 6" mobile.

I've got a previous year's version and the fit is probably best described as comfort or commuter fit, as in baggy on the body. The front pocket takes my Huawei honor 8 phone easily. Its a 5.2" phone.

I have no idea how much of it is the same as mine from a previous year but the front pocket looks a similar size but the zip is angled, mine is vertical. The rear pockets are three open ones and a lot deeper than the open ones on mine. Plus mine only has two open and one large zipped central pocket. The rear has a central, black panel but mine is an in the same fabric except the two side panels under the arms. Once the arms zip off (very easy to take off and put in again) mine has an almost tank top design at the shoulders, this season has short sleeves.

One annoyance of mine is the the inside flap on the main zip keeps folding back so you get a draft through the main zip on breezy days. It's got an elasticated strip of fabric folded over the edge which was sewn on stretched hence the tendency to fold back. Plus the front folds up at the zip.

It's currently what I've been wearing on my commute. It's great in the spring and autumn. Plus without the arms on it's great for cool early morning commutes then left off in warmer afternoon rides home. I might get the new one IF it fits. Mine barely fits, a bit short on arms and back length.

Huge amount of Louis Garneau kit going cheap. You can probably hazard an informed guess why, but it still means jumbo savings to be had for anyone stocking up their wardrobe - jerseys from £2.50, gloves from a fiver, arm warmers from a fiver. There's shoes in there but not a huge amount left. See them all here (used as size options are easier to filter there than the main site)
