Finally got my order from Cheap Cycling Store http://www.cheap-cycling.com/store/, I ordered the Team Radio Shack Retro Jersey and Bibs, and i have to say for $59.00 the quality is fantastic, i was a bit apprehensive about ordering from China distributer and the quality of the product but the only i could complain about was it took nearly three weeks to get here.
The best thing is they have large sizes to fit big solid buff (NOT) fellas like me, perfect fit!
But i will trial it this weekend and see how it goes, i know a few people who have ordered from them and say they are great bit of kit and last the distance on many challenges.
Sorry to thread mine, but I was wondering how the team kits etc were holding up after a year now?
Any issues with fit, quality, odor, chamois quality etc?
howdy, jerseys a still good, however i wouldn't reccomend the bibs on long rides due to the chamios quality
Thanks mate, I suspected that would be the case. Jerseys holding up is my main concern.
Thanx for the heads up on this store, I ordered the caddy uk kit on 3rd April and got here today and it looks good fits great.
Some will find my comments out of line and perhaps very opinionated but what the hell........Im an opinionated person.
When you buy cheap fake team branded wear from this website youre doing the relevant pro teams out of a few dollars. When you buy fake Livestrong gear the people who miss out on the dollars are cancer sufferers....someone can correct me if I'm wrong but dont the profits from the sale of Livestrong products go into the Livestrong Foundation that provides support for sufferers and funds cancer research? Basically what you have is a bunch of fakers profiting from the efforts of Lance Armstrong to help cancer sufferers....whichever way I look at it and even if you hate Lance Armstrong's guts..it's just wrong.
Post script (from Wiki): "At the online Livestrong store, 100% of proceeds after expenses go to support their Survivorship programs and services. The partnership with Nike has changed : no longer 100% of the profits are given to Livestrong. Nike has agreed to put the Livestrong brand in more countries and expand it, but pays a flat-fee to Livestrong now instead."
Dont have a problem with your opinion, and agree on the Livestrong part as i always purchase these items direct from the Livestrong Website. However the debate on pro team gear copies being sold should really be addressed by the team and the vendor selling the items. I do not buy anything from these stores as i am now fussy over quality and not price, however when starting out with my cycling hobby (addiction) on a tight budget this was handy to get me started.
