Lidl (and Aldi) offer great value on these cycle gear events a couple of times a year but you need to be quick to get what you want.

I'm after another 'smartphone case' this time as I have one and it's great - not just for a phone: it has a good sized zip up compartment for money, spare tube, etc. and just clips off when you leave the bike. Much cheaper than the one which Aldi had recently too.

Is that mini pump suitable for blowing up them hand truck pneumatic tyres does anyone know? It's quite a big valve but I think the same as what's on a mountain bike?
Great for anyone just getting into cycling.
I tried the gloves once, stitching came undone after about 2 weeks (and that was road use only!)

The mini pump does look like it'd work on both Presta valves (long, thin, bike tyre style) and Schrader valves (shorter, fatter, car tyres, some bike tyres and pretty much everything else) since it looks like it has a reversible bit. I'd test that yourself though.
The Aldi baselayer that was a rip off of the Rapha one is great. Shame Lidl aren’t doing them as I would have got another
Anyone know if the cycling shoes can take SPD cleats?
I have only bought the Aldi tops in the past - all well made and good value
What about glasses?

They don't say so and there's no picture of the soles; I'd guess not.
The last time I cycled my bum cheeks swelled up.
I seriously ended up with 4 bum cheeks.
Do the shorts help with the old bum swelling?

I've just bought a brand new bike but I'm scared to get on it for fear of destroying my bum cheeks again.
I've bought one of those gel seat pads but I think I'll buy the shorts for extra bum comfort.

A new bike is a great excuse to develop those extra butt muscles lol. A gel seat should help. If you suddenly feel yourself getting higher it's time for a break lol. Enjoy your ride

Nothing beats a good pair of shorts. Bib shorts are better though as the padding sticks to you like glue. Generally I find very thin saddles are the most comfortable as they flex while you cycle acting like suspension. Thick saddles tend to be super stiff and the extra padding will only generate tons of heat around your bum making it worse. Look up sit bone measure on YouTube and see if your saddle is wide enough.

Cycle shorts plus a set up where you are distributing more weight to your handlebars and the correct width saddle will mean a happy bum. If you get any chaffing or perineal issues then try chaffing cream or the saddles with a hole in the middle.

Aldi/Lidl stuff can be fantastic, it can also be really bad. For example, the winter cycling top I got from Aldi couple of years back is superb, I mean the quality is that of high-end brands. On the flip side of this were their cycling shorts, which not only didn't sit well in the padding but also looked obscene; I won't go into too much detail but they made me look like I was a woman in the special area, I shall leave it at that.

I’ve had that one and the track pump from there and neither were much good.
The small one struggles to get up to much pressure and the type without a rubber pipe risk snapping valves when you’re pumping away.
The track pump also struggled to achieve higher pressures, but is ok at mtb ones. It’s not the best made either, but ok for occasional use.
Just look at the Lidl gear (including the clothes) as entry level stuff, to see if you’re going to enjoy cycling. If you do, chances are you’ll upgrade anyway and won’t have wasted much money.

I would recommend paying more for good shorts. The more expensive shorts have more sizes and generally a better fit. The Lidl - Aldi kit is very good value though; I have a number of clothing items.

4 bum cheeks!! Lol


If you are serious about this ??

Quite normal to feel a bit sore if not cycled for a while. Just try a few short runs to start, on a flat smooth road each day. e.g. each day no more than 10 minutes or a mile to start. Add 5 minutes EVERY day ( no breaks) and gradually all will be well. Might take 2 weeks, but jut persevere through the pain and it will end up OK. Have never found that the saddle makes a lot of difference. Lot of experienced touring cyclists prefer a non padded hard leather saddle.Leave any off road biking alone until confident and OK. If you have a standrsd mountain bike it should feel very smooth on a mormal road

Get yourself a Zacra gel seat cover from Amazon, did the job for me and my 4 bum cheeks!!
Aldi cycling stuff is much better then Lidl ones. I will pass on this one.

I was surprised to find that a narrower seat was way more comfortable for me. The old backside used to be sore just doing the commute (which is only 20 miles, hardly an all day in the saddle job), swapped seats with the one off the gf's bike and it's a hundred times better.
For the authentic Lidl experience don’t forget to rip open several packs, screw up the contents then throw everything back in the display basket.

You never know Lidl might discover the concept of displaying what they hope to sell.
Or you could opt for the Norfolk procedure. Open several packs, look confused then throw everything into neighbouring baskets.

My last major bum episode was probably 15 years ago and it put me off riding until now.
A group of 10 went for a ride...just 10-15 mile.
I was fine until others wanted to stop for a break, when I got back on the saddle my nether regions were unbelievably sore.
I resembled a cowboy the next day, I could barely walk.
I've had this new bike for two weeks and due to work commitments and getting ready for my holidays I've not been able to mount it.
It has a narrow saddle (for a mountain bike)
My wife's new bike is the same make but a Ladies model with a wider saddle.. should I switch saddles?
She'll never know.
The more upright you sit the wider the saddle needs to be: if you lean forward further with some weight on your wrists and a different area of your pelvis in contact the saddle should/can be narrower. A wide saddle on a road bike with drop bars will not be comfortable as it will push you too far forward and probably chafe on your thighs. Male/female and natural variations within each matter too. There's a fair bit of trial and error in this. Some say the Brookes leather type saddles are the best once broken in - but that takes half a lifetime and they are very expensive (typically £100+). All the above assumes the bike fits and is set up properly for you: I see so many people riding with the saddle too low (especially women): with the ball of the foot on the pedals your knees should be almost (not quite) straight at the bottom of the pedal stroke; you'll then be just touching the ground with your toes when stopped.

All the above is the accepted theory: in practice I've yet to find a saddle which comfortable for more than a few miles. I think there's a fortune waiting for someone who can invent a truly comfortable saddle!

I threw myself into cycling last week by doing a 50 miler then did a 30 miler on Weds and then another 50 miles on Sunday with different groups.

As a newbie and doing 16.5mph average with few stops, my bum, back and arms were incredibly sore but I am getting more used to it every ride. Its a narrow planet X saddle. Also not wearing underwear under your cycle shorts is a must when cycling continously up hills for three hours!

Note: Not everyone is a heroic Iron Man-esq God like me, please pace yourself! Be comfortable and be safe!

Maybe unlucky? The gloves were just as good as other branded pairs for me (btwin ones which cost £10 are almost exactly the same, different padding I think but otherwise the same result). Worked fine for me for months (5 days a week to and from work minimum, not including personal travel) but like all gloves, I always lose them which is why I'll need to pick up another pair of these.

I always wear underwear with bike clothing (no boxers though) never had a problem on long rides.
Can I compliment everyone that's commented with positive, respectful and helpful advice. Well done all. It's nice to see.
