Aldi bike gear is back. Some stock is available instore and/or online. From reviews of previous years it's pretty good quality. I have purchased a couple of pairs of winter gloves in the past and they are really good. Clothing,lighting,bike maintenance stuff available and a few other things. Starts on September 29th instore. Stuff can be preordered online but won't be dispatched until 29th.I see the 'Men's Red Full-Zip Cycling Jersey' in a large size for £12.99 is out of stock online already!

how good is the quality of this stuff? I've often seen Aldi cycling gear on here and I need to get some new gear myself.

decent quality for beginners

i have a fair few things from aldi but the winter gloves a few years ago were terrible. Don't skimp on these and over boots if you want to go out 5c or less.

Are the lights usually any good from Aldi?

Agree, my gloves disintegrated within a fortnight

Depends on the conditions you'll be cycling in and the amount of time/miles you'll spend in darkness.
I personally wouldn't cycle on the road with anything with that sort of light output
There isn't really anyway of getting a decent lighting setup without investing a bit of cash imo. I've tried the cheap Cree lights but the Chargers are so dodgy that its not a long time solution.
I use Moon XP600 on constant with Smart Lunar 35 in flashing on the front and Smart 1/2 watt constant with flashing fibre flare on the rear. Total probably around £100 as I got decent discounts but they've lastest several seasons now

Better then LIDL ones.

All the new riders recently flying past me on the downhills, then they are wheezing high cadence up hills getting in my way. Getting a bit fed up with 'em. They would be quicker if they got off and pushed.

Thanks for the info mate. Good to know. A bit more than I'd be wanting to spend for now as I'm not too into it just yet, maybe around £30-40 is what I hoped.

Fair enough, for that money these are probably the best options
Rear for £10: Link
Front for £24 : Link
Front is 400 lumens and USB rechargable
Road.cc did a lights test with the front link

The lights Aldi sell look like unbranded Moon Comet and Nebula range. The rear one at £12.99 has 100 Lumens output and looks like unbranded Moon Nebula, which retails for £40+

They do look exactly the same! USB charging is a plus as well
Personally wouldn't go as low as 240 lumens for the front but no complaints at the price

Personally I find their gear pretty good on the whole and I will never be at the level of requiring to pay £80+ for a shirt.

For some items it probably pays to spend more e.g breathable jacket to be used used when the weather temperature varies through out a ride and also cycling over trousers (to get breathability). I also have some non aldi / lidl gloves.

I have some of the Premium (Moon Comet-type) front & rears from last year. One has failed (due to be returned under warranty) but the others are fine and I've been really happy with them and they do get used regularly. The rear can be set really bright. The front runs very bright also but is more for being seen than seeing with due to the widespread light and not a beam (like my Cateye Volt 300 which I think's great).

I've bought the latest Moon Nebula-type rears and tested them against last year's ones and they are brighter on full blast. They weigh 10g more (54g over 44g) with the rubber seatpost mount but they do come with a saddle mount as well as a belt/bag clip mount (old ones didn't have this).

I think you'll be happy with the £9.99 pack of front & rears (which cost £8.99 for each light last year). The new £12.99 rear is a bargain you'll also be happy with.
