This offer actually got my OH out of the house by 8.40am this morning...so voted hot just for that. He's just rung me very excited because he's got everything he wanted. Bless him...simple things... :p
#3
Aldi cycling kit is REALLY good value. It's not the best build quality wise and may only last a year or 2, but is so cheap your still quids in compared to the 'proper' stuff.

I've got a list I'll be picking up tonight
#4
Been waiting for this since the weekend :-D

Bring on my lunch break!
#5
wish I knew what this was all about :)

<-- hasn't a clue about pro-cycling type shizzle, but needs to find a bike
#6
Yeah there kit is good see some reviews here! im off at lunch time too!
#7
Is there any chance someone could bag me a set of the overshoes in a size 11 and i will pay for postage and your costs? None at my store :(
#8
Shame they have so very few shops in London, if I had to travel to the closest one it would cost me more in fuel or transport fares than the price of the goods...
Voted hot though! Those shoes are perfect for the gym, and I'd love to get those gloves for Winter commuting...

I picked up a top, high-viz jacket and a pair of shoes this morning.

Top & jacket seem fine, but a bit unsure about the shoes.
These have a click-to-tighten ratchet on the top strap, which is a little fiddly to undo.
There was a chap in the shop who was stuck in his and I had to help him escape :)

I had a look at the overshoes & cap, but the overshoes just seemed like cheap plastic covers that may not even be waterproof.
Didn't need the cap so didn't buy those.

The gloves looked Ok, but very little padding on the palms.

Seemed quite good quality stuff for the price. HOT!!!
#13
Would anyone get me a bunch of stuff?

email me at slane_00 [at] hotmail.com

I'll pay someone £5 plus postage! No aldis near me.

I could probably pick you up a pair of these (there were lots in Norwich) but please see above for my post on the quality of the overshoes.
Probably best to describe them as a pair of plastic socks (that thin!!!) with zips on the back and some reflective piping.

Please let me know if you are still interested and we may be able to work something out.
BUT I have to say that i am going to spend a bit more on a quality pair of overshoes for myself.
#15
Many Thanks, gots me loadsa bargains.

Can't help noticing that most of their cycing stuff tends to be shameless rip-offs of dhb. Not quite sure how they get away with it, but certainly ain't complaining. One thing I will be complaining about though is the fact I just broke the key in the lock I bought, I guess for £4 I wasn't really expecting anything amazing, but that's just taking the wotsit

If you could get me a set that would be great, there only to be used on the cycle to work (6 miles), so they should suffice. Cheers! You can contact me on
#17
may just go for those gloves if they're in stock later.. cheers
#18
Just for info, the shoes are spd only compatible, don't take a Look or Time 3 point cleat fixing.

I too noticed how the shoes look like a dhb pair....

Ok, I'll probably be back there today or tomorrow to return the shoes that I bought.
If they have a pair in 11 I'll get them, let you know and we can work out payment & delivery from there.

My cycle to work is 7.5 miles, but with lots of puddles in winter. Quality overshoes for me please :-D

If I were you I would take the email address out of your post above. I have it now and will send a test mail from HotMail, but this might cut down on any spam :thumbsup:

For me "semi-fair-weather" means that I get to work Ok and then it chucks it down on my way home. :-D

I've sent you an email - can you confirm that it's arrived?
#22
Just got back with gloves and waterproof trousers, all that I was after really.

Didn't seem much variety in the overshoe sizes, perhaps they've been a popular item thus far?
#23
3 pairs of socks and a compression baselayer tee and leggings for me. Cheers + hotness.
#24
Thanks OP!:thumbsup:

Saw this last minute and quickly got down to the Old Kent Road branch, managed to bag the last large mens; winter jacket, shower jacket and trousers.

Got some overshoes too (nothing left bigger than 8/9). Only one pair of SPD's think they were a size 6.

Due they normally have more stock in the back?

These microfibre towels look a steal at £3.99

Grabbed a lightweight jacket but good job I tried it on first cos I usually am somewhere between a med and a large but I needed an extra large in Aldi fit!

The gloves were a perfect fit in med [really good buy] but the waterproof trousers were a laugh 38" waist and 22 foot leg!
#27
That was too tempting, I took a long lunchbreak and a train to Hounslow... Got a few little things but it's crazy how they always add up when you turn your back and before I knew it I was paying £94 at the till... :cry:

- The shoes look quite plasticky and the greyish silver finish looks a bit cheap, but they'll be good enough for the gym and felt comportable enough. I confirm that the ratchet mechanism on the top, like mentioned above, doesn't look that sturdy and reliable.
I also talked to another cyclist that was wearing a pair of those (he was coming back for a lock) and asked him for feedback, he mentioned that the soles were a bit flat so some people might not want to walk too much with those (or cycle for very long), but overall he found them comfortable. But what won me over, to be fair, is the price tag... The cheapest shoes you'll find in Halfords start from £49, if memory serves me right.

- The cap and shoe cover set looks quite good, especially for the price, and it's made of 3M Scotchlite fabric. It doesn't look waterproof but the label says "water repellent" so it should be good enough if you don't put your foot in a puddle.

- The sunglasses (that I didn't see advertised anywhere) are great, the shape is perfect even for my big head and large nose, and they're certified level 3 for UVs.

- As for the clothing, the whole range seems to be of a good quality, certainly not the best but I still can't believe they're so cheap. Only the socks looked a bit disappointing. The shirts and jackets are quite nice although the reds and blues they used are very bright, but that's a matter of taste, and the more visible you are on the road, I suppose the better.

- Another good surprise is the chain lock, the cheapest equivalent at Halfords or Evans will set you back 4 times that price... The plastic looks solid enough, and it even features a little pad to cover and protect the lock when the key's not in.

- As somebody mentioned before, the gloves have a thick padding on the palm side, but that's actually a good thing when you cycle for a little while... I like to rest some of my weight on the hands and handle bar to alleviate some of the saddle's pressure. Above the thumb they also feature a pad of towel-like fabric to wipe your forehead or maybe scratch/rub your face without hurting yourself.

All in all, I feel really pleased with my purchases, I'll just be careful with the shoes and enjoy all the rest fully. But for that price, if you don't cycle for hours every week, you will get great value. And if you only cycle occasionally but would like to get some appropiate gear to make it more enjoyable, why spend more? Just go ahead!

Oh, and here's some rep', I'm really that pleased!

I went to my local Aldi they didn't have all the kit I wanted but I managed to get some waterproof trousers which where cheap. I really wanted some gloves and over shoes maybe ill try again another day.
#30
I passed the info on to a cycling mad office mate, who grabbed some stuff in her lunch break and seems quite pleased, she took me for a lovely meal in the process :)

Cheers, OP!

rst, I have now sent you a PM. Can you have a look and either PM me with your email (I may have got it wrong) or email me with the address I have supplied.

Cheers :thumbsup:

I went into the Shepton Mallet branch for a look, came out with:

5 pairs of winter socks
Shoes, cheap enough for a winter season!
Cycling trousers x 2, (too fat for the mediums, so they are going back!, but the large are just right.)
Overshoes
2 pairs of gloves. Seems best to get a size larger than you usually have.
Waterproof trousers
Pair of glasses. £3, practically disposable!
Cycle holder, a bargain for a fiver.
Microfibre towel for drying myself off after a wet ride into work.

All for under £90 quid. Bargain.:thumbsup:

That's me cycling to work during the winter months!

Went into Kingsbury branch last night, fairly good availability, bought shoes, socks, thermal shirt and trousers, rain jacket and few other bits, all for under £80.

Quality isn't bad at all

Hot :)

Shades? Didnt see them!

I never saw them either, but apparently they're £3 if you can find them, as I said, good gear at half the normal cost of other bike shops/retailers.
#37
Aldi in Hounslow had one pair of those only, I was surprised as they were not advertised anywhere. Now it lives on my stack of cycling gear, tried them this morning, very nice fit around the nose and the eyes so I won't cry anymore on those cold winter mornings. They're a bit too dark for the cloudy days though, but for £2.99, can't complain!

Just popped in local Aldis and they had the shades at half price. £1.49 bargain.

Also picked up some gloves, shirt and bike stand. Thankfully only spent £20 and resisted the rest! :oops:

Treated the missus with some terminator style comments with the shades on. Hilarious!
#39
Just had a look at the shoes, they didn't look half as cheap as I expected them too.
Shame they only go up to a size 10 :(
#40
Great deal, but because of this I've now become an active member of the society of poor people. :cry:

The thermals here seem MUCH better than the skiing ones I've seen for around the same price. Anyone know of any reason these shouldn't be used for skiing?
