Are there any places that sell cheap, non-team, jerseys? After something pretty low key.

How is the winter gear from Monton, does it keep you warm?
Would it be REAL thermal or just some cheap gimmick.

I wore my thermal Monton jersey this morning on my ride. Temp was around 12 degrees and I was comfortable. They aren't really good enough for real winter though it depends where you live and how cold it gets. It gets down into the minuses regularlly during winter here in Canberra. They are more an autumn or spring garment. Price is right though and quality (apart from not being warm enough) is as good IMO as other brand name jerseys that I have that cost 2 or 3 times the price. Only real gripe I have with the Monton jerseys is that the rear pockets seem a bit high and can make it awkard to get food or other items out while on the move.

Thanks Mate, appreciate your feedback.
I'am in Melbourne and the lows would probably be 8-10 C in the morning.
I think that should be ok?

It depends on what level of intensity you ride at. If you just roll along then you may get cold. If you hammer it trying to get Strava KOMs or win the Commuter Cup :roll: then you should be ok.

Yesterday was about 6 degrees and I wore a Monton thermal jersey and I was fine but I was doing hill reps and was working pretty hard so din't notice the temp though my feet were getting slightly cold. Today was warmer and I did a hilly loop of just under 50km and wearing the same jersey I was again fine, actually a little warm at times. Yoou can always wear a summer jersey or thermal base layer underneath.

My Monton Jersey and Bib came in yesterday, like the bib really nice but the Jersey has some cubes texture, would've liked it to be plain like the bib.
Everyone here who've purchased from Monton have the same ?

I don't think anyone has any idea what you're talking about... a close up photo or more detailed description may assist.

My monton kit (all trek team stuff) isn't made of cubes. Sure the jersey is a different texture from compression lycra or sublimated lycra but that's normal. Same as any other kit I've bought.

I think you got my point, but I see guys riding with lycra team jersey and shorts which are complete compression sets and look cool :)
Why are the monton jerseys different ?

I haven't noticed that. But if there is a difference it's probably because Monton stuff costs $60 for complete kit instead of $300+.

Because they are fakes.

Yeah, but how hard is it to make the jersey from the same material as the bibs or shorts?
It might even be cheaper.

I find it strange that you haven't noticed it.
I might take some photos later today so you know what I'am talking about.

Most cheaper or low-run jerseys aren't made of compression material. Maybe because compression stuff isn't as comfortable, who knows.

I know sublimated lycra is never 'true-black'. It's always a darker shade of grey and that might influence the decision.

Either way, kit is kit at $60 for shorts+jersey and you can't really complain if the shorts are even moderately comfortable.

Hi,
If you are after cheap Jersey's or anything else related to cycling as long as you don't mind it being from the Chinese manufacturers this site has everything.

Edit: for some reason the site I posted isn't allowed. Not sure I know why. But the site is called alliedexpress which looks like just a wholesale sellers site.

I brought a set off cycling motion and went one size bigger, based on feedback. I'm finding them a little too big. I'll try another set in my usual ordered size. Is there any interesting sets that aren't team kit?

on the left hand side down the bottom of main page it has all the teams, click other and you will find non team kits, also click on monton in the same section.
