Well, the hunt continues. Got an email of a new line from Victory Chimp (better known for their socks, caps and other stuff), but have a couple of jerseys. Liked the look of a couple of them (two colours in this design) ;

Mind you, at GBP 77 ea :shock: (translates to A$155 shipped)

Note : Meant to be free shipping worldwide over 50 quid, but doesn't seem to work, and doesn't take off VAT or add GST, so too expensive for me :?

Hunt continues !!

EDIT : Comms from Victory Chimp show that free international shipping is triggered at GBP100 :shock: and the prices on the site are ex-VAT, so for us Ozzies, the jerseys are GBP77 + shipping.

44GBP (80AUD) shipped
Probably a little to conservative for your tastes Galibier https://galibier.cc/short-sleeve-wear
I swear by their leather mitts, and own their Pave summer jersey, quality on a budget.

Looked at the Galibier ones, and well priced, but yes, a bit plain. But will keep my eye on them.

In the end, went with this one from Prendas.

As worn by Greg LeMond in the 1989 Tour - well, not actually worn, but the same style and 99% correct logos (Coors didn't respond to Prendas to give them permission to use the logo, so it's not there.
Twas on special, and the VAT reduction paid for the shipping - GBP45 shipped, so happy with that. And I like my retro stuff :D

Thanks for all the suggestions !!

you can find that jersey and other less outrageous but equally colourful at
https://racmmer-cycling.aliexpress.com/store/1052221

It is less than $20 shipped, It does not feel like a $20 jersey, sure it is not the same quality as the $100+ name jerseys I own, but comparable or better than most of the sub $100 jerseys in my wardrobe including my BNA Monton.

Size wise at 184cm 80kg 98cm chest 80cm waist and preferring race fit I went M, bad move fits across my chest but short, I really could do with a L (an XL would probably be too loose for my taste).

After 65kms today including 16km TT and a few showers


Hi nickobec,

These look really good! I need to update my 'commuting jersey stash', and some solid options in there. Have you tried any of there bib knicks? If so, any commenst around sizing and/or comfort?

Not yet

My commute is 40km and then I usually extended it with a bunch ride. So with two and half hours plus in the saddle. I tend to commute in good quality bib shorts rapha, veloone, capo.

I might by a pair to test in the future.

There is gold in the feedback section on AliExpress you will find comments on sizing with purchasers height + weight

Is it necessary to have a full sleeve tatt these days when wearing a nice jersey or is a single....say a web on the elbow, or LOVE on the fingers..... enough?

It's either full sleeve or nothing. There's no middle ground.

[quote="ironhanglider"]Stumbled across this

it is the same racmmer kit as https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Racmmer-2018-Pro-Summer-Cycling-Jersey-Set-Mountain-Bike-Clothing-MTB-Bicycle-Clothes-Wear-Maillot-Ropa/1052221_32870743112.html on the Racmmer store of AliExpress, except an extra $20 more. There are a bunch of similar web stores supposedly in UK, Australia, US etc selling kit that is available from AliExpress at higher prices and shipped directly from China.
