Cycling event?... There isn't even one bike in it!


Most cyclists already have a bike

Oh and it’s online only until the 29th April when it will go in store also
Need some new kit now the weather better
Anything worth getting??
From Lidl's last cycling event, I've gotten the bike maintenance stand, helmet, saddle and chain brush cleaner.

I'll have a look when its in the store, shame its Roadie based again, the Off-road based stuff is nicer and tougher.

Looks like the same stuff as usual, just in a slightly different style.
Getting more expensive too.

Purchased a wind proof jacket from Aldi last year for £20, hands down the best item of cycling gear I’ve used

Got the winter soft shell jacket for 4.99£ from 20£ very good indeed
I’m after a service stand they are £40 in Halfords so £25 decent. Kids bike helmets look good it’s hard to find decent looking ones cheap and they £10 each. That wet lube I bought yesterday for £5.95 Halfords and it’s £3.99. All seems good to me

Looks very much like one I bought from Rutland a while back. Same price, incredible value, use it often and pretty sturdy
Assuming most of you guys are cyclists so hope you don't mind me asking. I had a bike delivered but the handles were turned to the side for shipment. I've looked and I think I need to buy a torque wrench to sort it out unless i risk over tightening? Ammi being too concerned? It's the nicest bike I've had and I don't want to ruin it. I'm sure in the old days you just put the wheel between your legs and yanked the handlebars around.

Speaking from my recent bike purchase, it came with an allen key in the box, you slot the handlebars into the frame and then use the allen key to tighten it from above and then put a dust cap over (also in the box). HOWEVER, the allen key with mine was utter ****, it rounded off before it was even tight enough to ride and on first trying the handlebars just turned and the wheel went the other way. Luckily I had my own allen keys so I just had a quick search for them and then I tightened it properly.

So from my experience you need a reasonably good allen key, even a set that costs a couple of quid would be better than the one that came with my bike. Heck since then I have even tried one that came with a monitor mount and that was a million times better than the one with the bike.

To anyone who has bought Aldi cycling gear before, how is the sizing in general compared to normal clothing? I've never bought cycling gear before and yes I do know the base layer stuff is intended to be tighter than my baggy shirts, but what I mean is are the sizes about right compared to other stuff or not?
Those metal wire mesh cycling backpacks look interesting, wonder if they'll be any good

It really depends what the components are made out of. If it's carbon or titanium, yes torque wrench all the time, alloy, not much of an issue, but for a not much money the lifeline basic 5nm one from wiggle is what I use.
If history is anything to go by, fit will be terrible, quality will be appalling. It's a good job they do these offers every 3 months since none of the Aldi kit will last that long!

How?
Oh my god. Rapha copies!
Wonder how long before each individual item is posted?

Saying that, you could have put some example items and prices in the description, OP?

Mine has been fine. Sizing can be a bit variable. I would spend more on good shorts / bib tights but jerseys, base layers and jackets are good imho.

So you may need to buy two nearest sizes to see which one gives the best fit then return one

Sizes are OK,but the fit can be bad,i've tried M size tops which fit me but were excessively long,so no good for anyone of average height, best to buy in-store and return for a refund if its not a good size fit.
Also worth checking Decathlon as they have good and maybe better value cycling clothing and accessories.

Already looked on Decathlon, they had a couple of things I want at good prices, but no store local to me.
Purchased a lot few years back. Will keep an eye out on next trip to aldi

Just checked Aldis return policy too and they allow return of these instore so could always buy online and if not a good fit, return to store and buy the correct size there.

I have aldi cycling gear that has lasted over 10 years, and I commute by bike
Hardly anything there! A tad disappointing. maybe Lidl will have a better event

If you are asking the question I would assume it's not carbon, so don't worry too much. Just don't tighten it loads

Unless it's carbon then you don't need to worry about over tightening the stem, the bars and the stem are unlikely to be carbon anyway so those will be fine tightening as much as you think is required.
Am after a child's bike seat. Is the one in the offer any good?

I got their cycling shorts and jacket it is best to try them for size as already suggested as sizing is not uniform so buying sizes according to the clothes you already wear won’t give a good fit and it’s better to have comfortable clothing to enjoy the ride.

Jacket Quality is good quality fasteners and decent fabric too.

Their lights are brilliant got three year warranty and they do actually have no issues replacing as I had a fault with mine they posted new replacement ones all I had to do was email them a copy of the receipt
I’ve not managed to order anything as it keeps timing out or I get error 503
Some stores still have the rear bike camera light reduced to £20. ( seems to be OK and you can downlaod a firmware updated for looped recordings, not brilliant in the dark ironically! videos on youtube).

I had the same scenario as you.
The 3 year warranty can't be matched by any one else.
I'm really happy with my Aldi light's and will continue buying them, as & when needed.
I went for the bike stand...been meaning to pick one up for a while
