Cheap Bibs/Jerseys

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow there are some great deals on there! But there is not much in my size(small or extra small).

Just saw this on ebay: https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:X:RTQ:US:1123

Anyone have any experience with this sort of stuff? Looks like a killer deal if they are real castelli products. I have that exact same jersey/

I've done business with these guys. It's a copy, but it's not bad. Graphics are very very good. Materials are up to par. Fit is a little off though. Still for the money its not a bad deal at all.

It's not a big/small thing. My jersey was fine, bibs were very high in the front. Came over my belly.

Amazingly cheap. One can afford to get team jerseys from all the ProTour teams. Except Ag2R. They should be shot for going with brown shorts.

I would second Bonktown. They have great prices and an excellent return policy. I run a desktop gadget on my computer so I can see when deals pop up.

Quick question, if you say the ToC jerseys were a bit large, how tall are you, and what's your rough chest circumference? I normally wear XSmall or Small, depending on the brand...

I just got my second order of TOC jerseys. I liked them so much that I ordered again. Top quality Hincapie or Voler jerseys for less than you'd pay for Nashbar bottom drawer stuff. Not bad mouthing the Nashbar stuff because mine look very sturdy but the Voler/Hincapie stuff is a giant leap in quality for $15 a jersey. That price for such quality is amazing. Who cares if it says 2009 on it and has the Herbalife logo on it.

I hear you. I'm gunshy of ordering online but I got lucky with large jerseys from TOC store. They fit great. Ordering from other online stores, I need medium, large or even XL depending on the brand. My LG jerseys from Nashbar are way baggy but I still wear them.

At one time we had men's small bibs and shorts but they sold so rarely compared to the other larger sizes, we decided not to reorder once we eventually sold out, because our minimums from the manufacturer was too high for such a low volume size. So once we sold out of our initial order of small (it took us 2+ years) we never brought more in.

Now if you are a big guy...we have you covered....sizes up to 4X.

Has anybody tried the Zimco stuff on ebay? My younger brother asked me about them but I've never heard of the brand before.

I just got my bones NorthWave stuff from Tiny Deal in china...
https://www.tinydeal.com/cycling-jers...1_845_850.html
$36 for jersey AND shorts, delivered! And they were great quality. Pretty close to the Hincapie Amgen jersey. It took 2 weeks, and I'd bet they are a total fake, but in this case, i really couldn't care less.
