From what I've seen, the clothing is generally good quality but over-priced at full retail (as are just about all bike specific clothing brands, I might add). I'm very happy with the clothing I've bought from them before when on sale.

$30 for cycling gloves is about right, so check the stitching and buy them if they pass the test.

Cheers,
Graeme

I'd agree with Graeme. The clothing when on sale is a pretty decent price but retail is a bit pricey. The accessories on the other hand seem very over-priced. You can get the exact same ones (with a different brand name) on Ebay or DealExtreme for a much better price.

Either your not from Australia Matty or you really, really need to get some sleep.

Might be an idea to add your location in your profile.

Another good place to look for gloves is Bunnings. Some safety/work gloves stack up pretty well as cycling gloves as far as protection for a good price goes.

Cheers,
Graeme

Hahaha. For a start I'm in WA so 2 hours behind and Graeme correctly pointed guessed, I'm on shift work at the moment. Just finished work at 11pm. Profile updated :)
