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

Cheap Cycle Jerseys

Has anyone ever used this site? Are they legit or are the jerseys knockoffs?

knockoffs by the looks of it. I looked at the Assos bibs and they don't look like that.

Those are all more than I usually pay for jerseys, but I'm going to go with "knockoff".

The domain is less than a year old (although they claim established relationships with customers for several years) and is registered with xin net (Beijing).

I've bought a bunch of the chinese made jerseys from various vendors on ebay. Quality is surprisingly good. I wouldn't buy cheap cycling shorts tho.

I have some fake jersey's and bibs... some are better than others, but a lot of em got a whole lotta use and they stood the test of time...

nuthin wrong with checking out the fakes, lol.. they're sold more reputably on Amazon and so forth however...you'll end up buying some new fancy ones eventually too I'm sure, but ya can't use those every ride, not if you're like me and you ride every day and you don't like running the washing machine for just one, very small load of a few articles of clothing...

DON'T TRUST IT!!! I thought it was weird they had a tab along the top for "payment" so I clicked on it and they say you should use Western Union because it's the fastest? Never ever seen anything like that on a website, and scams I've heard of usually involve Western Union being used.

You could get the same thing off a half-decent Aliexpress seller for about half the dough, and not have to send your money through Western Union.

They take Visa and MC. They also do echeck. The Western Union is for wiring money for people that don't have credit cards or want to use their checking accounts.

You can get cheap jerseys off eBay all day long. Same goes for Nashbar or Competitive Cyclist. If you gotta go Chinese, I'd recommend eBay and PayPal so you have a layer of protection between you and the seller.

Wow come on. Even if it's sarcasm, don't promote racial stereotypes which don't exist. If I was on the edge of poverty with no food, I'd eat rats..

I stand corrected, didn't think about that possibility.

Nonetheless, as milkbaby mentioned, there are other options out there to get cheaper jerseys.

I agree. At the beginning of my cycling (last summer) the cheapo jerseys were all I could afford. Especially since I just can't have one. And I really like to wear cartoons Oh, still can't afford the good stuff. But I won't skimp on bottoms ever again. I already learned that lesson.

I have a few generic/knock off jerseys and bibs from China and a few legit ones. IMO: cheap China jerseys = good value for the money, cheap China bibs = fall apart after a couple of months of regular use

If you read further, they don't actually take MC at this point in time. Only Visa. And they offered an alternate portal in case the transaction was declined on the first one. That seemed a caution flag to me.
