Stock sale at https://veloone.com.au/

I already own a full kit + extras and just ordered more bibs, jersey, gilet and socks

Their bib shorts are comfy for long rides.

Their attention to detail on the jerseys is impressive.

Seriously good kit for the $ they are asking

So my tip is forget the wh5 PBK code and go the itk10 code which is $75 off instead of $45 after digging around.

Someone hasn't got a Wiggle code by any chance? Looking for a cheap 6800 cassette (11-28) and Conti 4k II tyres (25mm) and Wiggle has the best prices on those. Couldn't be bothered creating another account or phoning a friend. :-)



$810 now..... grrr...

How do they compare to DHB aeron if you've tried both? Wiggle have those on sale for $74 and I've found them excellent.

If the DHB Aeron are similar to the older DHB Aeron Pros, there are better shorts out there (and the VeloOne shorts are one of them)

Do get me wrong, I wore out 4 pairs of DHB Aeron Pros, bang for buck best shorts for rides up to 80km or so at the time. For distances over that I would wear Assos.

While the VeloOne is not in the Assos long haul comfort line. I find them much better than the DHB Aeron Pros, and quite happily use them for 100km+ rides.

My Assos wore out and were replaced by Capo Padrone shorts which are my now go to, long distance kit.

It is a moot point as all the VeloOne male shorts are sold out

If anyone is after a second hand disc roadie for commuting duties in a 58 or 61 possibly frame, this second hand Specialised TriCross is good value to Sydney siders.

Its a 2013 model from what I can gather. Buy it before I do (and I don't need to add another bike to the collection)

I'm wanting to buy a jersey from Rapha while the sale is on for when it warms up here in Newcastle. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a particular jersey for the warmer weather? I'm looking at either one of the flyweight jerseys, or the pro team aero jersey.

Pro-team aero jersey is not the best breathing piece of kit in their line-up. On the warmer days not only do you get a silly tan through the mesh sleeves, I notice my core cannot breathe through the material. I find myself unzipping the jersey wide open half the time. I'd be looking at the lightweight range.

Tez, how do Boardman's size up? Their XL generally a 'true' XL/ 58cms or thereabouts?

Yep its about a 58cm ETT. Even came with a 120mm stem which I needed to change out for a shorter one!
Happy to take any more measurements, however the geometry is pretty close to the current road sport too.
