Hahaha, good point! But cheers to people who are 'prepared', and with that many, you can share and help people out, which would 'balance' the karma!

That's not really $900 off, they'd sell that bike at that price all year around

OMGosh... Sorely tempted... Is there anything better value for money than this right now? Plus, the wheels really do look lovely.

Aldi/Cycling Express ones are pretty crappy. This one from HN looks to be the same one.

The 2XU stuff was mostly odd sizes like XXS or XXL though I saw a gillet and some compression bib longs in M that would fit me but I don't really need them and I can get other brands of these for the same or lower price all day every day so it wasn't worth getting too excited about.

Anyone tried the "comp cycle jersey". only $25. In the market for a couple jerseys, how would these stack up to Sugoi/LG? Biggest thing is the fit though, their "Cycle Sub" jersey looks form fitting, but it's $120.

That sub-zero cycle jacket looks awesome for $60. How cold does it need to get to put that on? Sorry, haven't cycled in winter before :oops:

Quick question - is the 2XU cycling specific stuff any good? havent really heard much mention of them in the cycling forums...

Was looking to get the l/s jersey and a jacket.

Cheers

On the 2XU stuff, has anyone owned any before....mainly a question about sizing as there was no size guide for heaps of the stuff. Is it form fitting (ie castelli) or fit true to size....(hate the variance on bicycle clothing!)

Anyway, have ordered a couple of XL tops so will see how it goes. :-)

My best bibs are 2XU. I've had them for about two and a half years and they get used just about every weekend. My other bibs are cheap Cell and Torpedo and the 2XU are definitely much much better quality. The 2XU bibs were (from memory) about $120 from the LBS.

I was quite disappointed that the current sale didn't have any M sized bibs :(.

Cheers,
Simon.

KHS Ultegra Di2 bike for $1799 at Torpedo7. It's got a FSA Gossamer crank and Tektro brakes, Aksium wheels, tiagra cassette and Ultegra is just being superseded but that's some very good value right there...
