Anaconda have a lot of bike stuff on sale at the moment, the cheap trainer is half price.
do you mean it is defective stuff?
I buy bits and peices there a few times a year. There is nothing wrong with their products
they don't passionately sell high end road bike stuff, being an outdoors company they sell their own generic brand and Shimano XC MTB
I have only just worked out the psycho-list tag (must be the painkillers I'm on) that's good.
I find its not really fit for purpose and kind of cheaply made.
My daughter does have a camping light we bought there and that is going strong, so perhaps its not everything. Bit harsh on my part!!!
I bought a trainer from there 4 years ago. I've only really used it this year but it's going strong and only cost $50.
I did buy a new saddle bag this week as mine was a bit too small to fit all my tubes & tools in. It was half price and a lot of their own brand have 50% off at the moment.
I need a decent sized bag for all the stuff we have to carry will have to go take a look...if I can persuade the Yorkshire man to open his wallet!
A couple of years ago I bought at their sales a foot pump, double barrel, for a car. Dual purpose but used mainly for my bike.
I bought the trainer last year and had no problems. I went in yesterday to buy some headlights for work 2 for $10 :) and thought I'd check the gloves,I've been using their Fluid brand gloves for a while but the new ones are not as good as the old one less padding) so I didn't buy. The only thing i wanted was an Endura rain-jacket which wasn't on sale at $225, I checked online when I got home available in Oz for $195 and from the UK for $145 so i guess i won't be buying the jacket from Ananconda. I find most of their stuff OK and generally good value when on special.
When I first started riding (and didn't know any better) I bought Fluid knicks and gloves - their "pro" versions. Now that I know better it turns out they were a very good choice, especially the gloves which had the correct anatomical positioning of padding to prevent Median Nerve compression. Sadly I haven't seen those particular gloves at Anaconda for over a year now. Fortunately I have ridden with Clive and discovered Cell Uno gloves which have good padding placement, sturdy fabric (including good sun protection), reflective ribbing and handy little tabs to peel them off with when soaked with sweat or rain. I would happily trade my expensive but useless Santini and Specialised gloves for Anaconda and Uno cheapies. Thanks Clive, it turns out you are worth waiting for ;-)
Their endura gloves aren't bad either.
Got some specialised gloves - most Ive paid for gloves. They are nice...but they have started unstitching after about 2 months :(
Might check these cell unos next time!
