Cycling Gear From £2.29 *Instore* @ Lidl

Lidl have their cycling gear back on offer next Monday. As usual there's some pretty good bargains to be had (full list in post).

Cycling gloves £2.99, helmets £8.99, cycle computer £3.99, track pump £4.99, and pannier bags £11.99; all decent quality kit at really competitive prices.

Make sure you get there early on the Monday, as the popular stuff often sells out quickly.

Oh and a few of the items seem dependent on where you are in the country, the sports glasses, roll-top panniers and cycling shoes don't seem available everywhere.

Link doesn't seem to be working, try this one: Lidl Cycling Essentials


Some highlights, with comparable prices from Halfords listed on the Lidl offers leaflet:

Cycle Helmet with detachable rear light. Kids (49-54cm) £7.99, Adults (54-65cm) £8.99
http://www.lidl.co.uk/static_content/lidl_uk/images/UK/UK_56071_01_s.jpg

Cycling Gloves £2.99 - Halfords value mitts £9.99
http://www.lidl.co.uk/static_content/lidl_uk/images/UK/UK_56098_01_s.jpg

30 Function Bike Computer (current/average/maximum speed, auto start/stop) £3.99 - Halfords value 5 function cycle computer £8.99
http://www.lidl.co.uk/static_content/lidl_uk/images/UK/UK_56074_01_s.jpg

31 Piece Bike Toolkit in robust saddle bag £4.99
http://www.lidl.co.uk/static_content/lidl_uk/images/UK/UK_56082_01_s.jpg

Pannier Bag 17L capacity, hard wearing, water-repellent, with clip-lock hanging system £11.99
http://www.lidl.co.uk/static_content/lidl_uk/images/UK/UK_41516_02_s.jpg

Also think the Aluminium Floor Pump at £4.99 is a great price (Halfords value plastic track pump £9.99)
And not sure how good the halogen light set is (15 lux) but it states the front light is rechargable, which makes it a little more interesting at just £9.99.

I'll be going for the gloves and a bike computer, hope there's still some left by the time I get there at 8.30am!

Get there early - or its all gone ! I've seen people walk out pushing trolleys loaded with cycle gear, then they sell it on ebay.

Not all of it. I bought a floor pump from Lidl before and it was rubbish. Cycling shoes also rubbish (cleat kept coming out). I've found the clothing (from Aldi) to be good - haven't tried Lidl for that. Returns policy is good though.

Awesome, have recently got back into cycling and also running, are aldi due to do their running gear any time soon?

I agree about the pump, mine just broke last week, not had it that long, but it all came loose, was good while it lasted, but this time around it has a 2 year guarentee, so maybe the quality has been improved.
#11
Good post, op :-)

Agree about the quality of things, but you can generally get a feel of how good the stuff is when you look at it in the shop.
Staff have been abolutely fine when I've returned a couple of things though.

Never had a problem with them and I use them daily. Maybe you have a faulty pair or you didn't do the bolts up quite tightly enough?

I've bought some comical cycling things from Lidl though, like the gloves that say "gel" all over them but contain no gel at all, and the "solar powered" cycle computer which clearly isn't.

I think you'll find that the 2 year guarantee is there to make you think the quality has improved so that they sell more, knowing that the number of people who bother to try to return the product if it breaks within two years (you need to keep the receipt) will be minuscule. (_;)
#14
The roll-top panniers are very good value. They're tough and waterproof like Ortliebs, but so much cheaper. They have an inferior rack fixing system but it's still adequate.

I wouldn't recommend the light set as the front light will be quite heavy and will have a very weak fixing mechanism. The combination leads to a light that will not last very long.
#15
that is ridiculously cheap compared to normal bike part prices.
there are bits that i would try (the shorts? tubes, pump) and bits that i wouldn't (the saddle, lights)

they should put a limit on purchases per customer if people really are buying to resell..

The hoist is outstanding value. They're at least twice that price on fleabay

How do you know they sell it on Ebay ? maybe they run a cycling club.

In theory they do, but when a few burly blokes turn up at the checkout with the entire stock, what can they do about it?
#19
Bike hoist looks fantastic value. I know that quite a few colleagues (inc me) are going to hunt around the local LIDL's for those.

I have had gloves from ALDI last year & they are still going (just). I was hoping for another aldi/lidl deal for another couple of pairs so this is a great time for me.

Fnarr fnarr - the old ones are the best.

They're like any other cycle helmet - a bit of polystyrene around your head which may or may not do any good.

Don't know about the glasses, but having snapped up two pairs of the shoes when they were about some time ago, I was miffed to see that they hung around at my local Lidl for ages afterwards, so they're not necessarily in great demand.
#25
MDC

The shoes aren't included in the sale near me (Glasgow), also don't seem to available down in London, but a random search shows Bristol, Gateshead, Manchester & Norwich seem to be getting them.....

As for the glasses, the leaflet I picked up in my local store shows them, but they aren't shown online for my local postcode, so I've no idea if they will be available or not?
#26
I imagine it's the clothes that go quickest? Do they have many of each in e.g. huge piles? Or just a few of each product?
#27
Not a huge pile, but a fair selection. You'll just have to take a trip and look; do some grocery shopping at the same time. If you're not hung up on brand names (and if you are, you shouldn't be on this site :p) then it won't be a wasted journey.

1. Refuse them, and if they object call the police

2. Get more stock in

If it's clothes you are after, watch out for Aldi's bike offer (which is usually in May), as I think their clothes are generally viewed as slightly better fit and quality.

Not seen it myself as I don't usually get there until later in the day, but have heard anecdotal evidence of people going in and buying as much as they can carry to try and sell on.

blahblahdoh

Yeah right - by the time the police arrive your minimum-wage checkout operator has a black eye and the goods are gone without being paid for.
2. Get more stock in
Which you won't be able to afford to do if these are loss leaders.
#31
Went to my local earlier wanted the sports glasses more than anything else but were none, also a lady looking for the Led lights but she couldn't find any either, I contacted Lidl's CS to try and find out if my other 2 stores within a 12 mile radius had any to save me a wild goose chase, eventually she told me the sports glasses order had been cancelled due to problems with the supplier so nationwide there should be none anywhere.
#32
Went to the one in emersons green, bristol. Bought two tops, a compression vest and rain jacket for 30 quid. Seem very well made for the money, and were selling like hot cakes! Mega bargain!
#33
went it this afternoon, the people in my town don't seems to be interest with those cycling stuff, still plenty seating here almost anything avaliable as on website. im going to grab somemore tomorrow. The aluminium pump is partucularly good, and the cycle computer, probably the best among them 30 functions with blacklights the only fault is wired hook on to my brompton and work beautifully. And most shockingly it doesnt has interfernece with other things around unlike those selling on ebay which is going for 3-5 times the price, also 3 years warrenty!
#34
forgot to mention inside the cycle computer theres a battery manufacture by mitsubushi not cheap brand, im wondering alone for the battery retailing out there probably 2£

What makes you think these are loss leaders? Do you mean the entire range of cycling gear? Do LIDL pay minimum wage? I'm not sure that's true. I'm sure they have policies for fighting crime though.
#36
I think they are loss leaders because otherwise they would not be such hot deals and they'd have more stock. Do I mean what about the entire range of cycling gear? I don't know if Lidl pay minimum wage - my point was that these people will not be paid a lot and can't be expected to tackle intimidating customers.

No, we sell it on ebay.

They used to do a wireless computer thing for £2.99 that would sell at £20 plus easily. Trolley full after trolley full. Then they started printing 'Lidl' on them

The track pumps are bobbins though

As a quick update, I was at a store early doors on Monday. Picked up a pair of gloves & the bike hoist. Also picked up a base layer top for £6-7 as it looked really good.

Well impressed with the hoist - seems excellent value.
The gloves are "good" - I tried on loads in the shop & had to go smaller than expected to get a good fit & could only get white which is a bit of a shame (i.e. look dirty after a single ride). Initial thoughts were that they are not as robust as the ALDI ones (when available) & thinner/softer, but well worth the money. Having used them for 3 commutes (5 miles each way) & 3 lunchtime 12mile sprints, well pleased with purchase.

I found the base layer is so good on monday that I went back later to pick another couple up - unfortunately all gone. Will see just how good after a few washes!
