Mellow Johnny Top/Bib shorts

Now before certain Pirates jump at the chance to own sexy white bib shorts.... surely they're knockoffs at this price, right? Are they any good?!

Think the hint is the item location........ China ?

Yeah, figured they were... I was wondering if they're good knock offs (i.e. not the real thing but reasonable cycling gear) or carp knock offs (not much use for anything)? Might plump for some (not the white ones though) and see how I go...

They come up real small...my old house mate ordered some of these Chinese jobbies.....he is normally a large in bib shorts he needed a XXL.......look good they won't last i'm afraid.

I've a couple of pairs of the ebay tops and shorts - I reckon they come up a size smaller than you think - but to be fair - a lot of european makes are dodgy with their sizes too.  The quality on mine is fine - obviously not as good as the real stuff - but cervelo tops are about 4 times the cost of a set of ebay shorts and tops.

I figure that on a student budget, if I can make a set last half as long as a decent set, then I've got value for money. And can get more funky colours

Aldi have got a new load in, got some rather good runny sock in there yesterday for 2.99. They are fine. The bike stuff is good too. Not Assos but for a tenner? Their wetties are 15 quid but appear to be surf orientated .

That'll be handy for Bala when the surf gets up
