Are they any good? Any puncture protection? Slippery when wet?

Ground Effect have a limited edition Merino hoodie called the Rangehood for $89
Targeted as an Urban top, the 'all black' may not suit everyone when considering visibility however if you have cycling wear that spends more time on your body while you are not riding... or you need the ultra slick black, it is a fine looking top.

And staying on theme with 'fine looking tops', this hoodie from Cycology (leisure wear) gets my thumbs up.. $99

I wish Cycology would come out with some on-bike kit.

I like a lot of their designs, and I think a fair number would translate well to jersey and bib-knicks.

Torpedo7 have their Union Workstand on special for $79.99 which was $99.99 only 2 or so days ago and $150.00 usually. Have heard some decent reviews about this product.

http://www.torpedo7.com.au/products/UNW ... tand-bt999

Pretty annoyed because i just ordered a bunch of stuff, could have tagged this onto the purchase to reduce double shipping costs!

Now to wait for the ALDI repair stand!

I have that Union stand and was very impressed with the quality for the price. Cant remember what I paid but I would recommend it, much sturdier than I was expecting for the price.

I am still tossing up between this Union stand and just waiting for an Aldi stand. The only thing I am worried about the Aldi stand is there is no quick release lock. Does this make it harder to clamp the bike as you have to wind the clamp on?. Also how portable is it?

Have a look at the one from www.oo.com.au . I have one and it is very sturdy. Only $49.95 + delivery.

That is a nice bit of kit Biciboy. And I do find myself going "well if I am going to spend 90 bucks on the T7 stand i might as well spend 130 and get the PCS-9"

Then again I am cheap :-P, so always looking for the cheapest option to get away with. I dont intend on doing anything "major" as I dont have the experience so figured a cheap stand will suit the purposes of cleaning and minor alternations

Unless someone has a MASSIVE sale on Park Tool/Feedback or Tacx stands soon of course :P

The Aldi stand is great value for money. Has served me just fine since I've had it.
