Authentic OR not? Ebay sellers selling jersey+BIBs $60... China made.

For example. Here i have 2 on-line stores plus ebay sellers selling below retail price.

------------------------------------------------------------


I found a pair of "ROCK SKULL CYCLING BLACK BIKE JERSEY/SHORTS " on ebay for a price of $49.99
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-ROCK-SKULL-C...item5ae0447e9d

Rock&Republic clothing are a American made brand, not China made.

Should i be suspicious of above store?sellers? My neighborhood stores sells BIBs for $80/100+, jerseys $80/90+ A combination will cost me $180+, depending on the brand.
Anyone have experience with the above store/sellers?

Thank you.

They aren't authentic but if $50 is all you have and you want to look like you're on Rock Racing, this may be your only choice.

If its can be made cheaply with a logo, someone will do it. Interestingly, sometimes the quality is good (I doubt it with shorts, given quality of materials and stitching required). I recently bought some Beats by Dr Dre which I knew were fake - they were $30 and actually sound pretty good. Certainly much better than others at the price for "proper" ones. Box was very well made, case, ear adapters, cables etc.

I'm worry the pads on the BIBs are bad quality. Hard to tell.
