I just got a bike too!
Bought a little saddle baq £19.99, this is £4.99 and contains a toolkit!

the first 2 pictures of the actual bag,is that the same bag in both pics??
or are they different designs

Work stand is great. I used mine loads and then a car ran over it. Fortunately not with the bike attached.

The bags are also good, but the tools are made of cheese metal, the tyre levers snap when you look at them and the puncture repair patches don't work.

I also have the computer doesn't register above 27 mph, even with the sensor/magnet setup near the hub.

Pedal harder, might do the trick?

Has anyone got this waterproof jacket? Can you easily roll it up to store in a jersey back pocket? Is it waterproof?
Thx

back pack looks good along with the socks,dont bother with the pump though,absolute rubbish,when you try to pump iit with your foot it goes all over the show oO

so what benefit are the socks over normal socks ?

If you wear the socks over normal socks probably keep your tootsies a bit warmer and make your little feeties seem a size bigger!

You can fit into bigger shoes with 2 pairs of socks on.

The jacket description says:
"Stores inside practical built-in pocket at back"
hopefully the pocket is not jacket sized - although I do like big pockets.

I can never remember whether Worthing has an Aldi or a Lidl and having two nearly simultaneous similar bike deals is doing my head in! Perhaps these deals could read "Lidl (in Worthing)" or Aldi (not in Worthing)" - or should that be the other way around? Won't matter on Thursday

Like the jacket and the stand.
Thanks!

If you can, go for a work stand. There's simply no need to spend any more than this amount on a stand - it's great value.

The toolkit in the saddle bag is indeed made of cheese. The patches only have a 50/50 chance of staying where they are put.

Personally wouldn't bother with a wireless cycle computer (although they do look neater).

Historically the foot pumps break after little use. This one's a different design but at the same price it's probably going to last just as long!

If you have a smart phone the computer is pointless - get something like Strava from the Play or App store. It will track your route, distance, speed, ave speed, cals burnt etc

ww.strava.com

Just remember to start it before you set off!

COLD - This is just an obvious RIP of the bike stand deal that mentioned all the bike gear.

No, this is a RIP of the email that Lidl sent me! Muppet!

Voted hot for The workstand alone they are great.

Whose car? Don't leave us with half a story bruv.

ok so the tool kit crap,anyone recomend one that has the chain fix part in it too?

Just got a bike and with the amount of bumps on todays road, get a right pain in my derrière afterwards. Fancy getting the gel saddle cover, are they worth it or should I save up for a decent saddle.

I also like the bike computer, don't really fancy having my smartphone on my bike and risking it falling off and getting damaged.

I bought a decent saddle last week for £55!!! Some people don't have bikes that expensive, buy the gel thing if your **** is sore you will stop peddling sooner.

Thanks themachman and uktottys for your suggestions, maybe I try the saddle cover and if it does slip around I take it back

Thanks for that great tip.....I was in the market for a computer before your tip

Strava is by far the best cycling app. Captures all the essential info u could ever need

Glad it was of use - and to the chap who doesn't fancy mounting his phone to the bike - put it in your pocket, you can view the results when your finished, or at home on you desktop/laptop/tablet...

Put it in your pocket before you start.

Hi I bought some items today and a couple of the shorts. They are too uncomfortable. does anybody know if i can i return them to any lidl as I did not buy in my local one today.

Popping down my local Lidl soon - I desperately need a dedicated cycle computer as I always forget to start Strava/My Tracks/MapMyRide before I set off, and I'm not particularly fond of the battery drain on my phone by using them.

Will come back here later to give a quick review of the computer. Looking at the image on the Lidl site suggests that it only measures in KM, not miles

Don't buy the cycle computer guys, it's not good.

Poor LCD viewing angles, and I can't get it to sync with the wireless transmitter despite it being less than 70cm away from the receiver (as stated in the manual).

That's strange, I had no problems with mine and I found the viewing angles absolutely fine.

Well I just bought the socks, the bike stand and the capri pants, so here's hoping, would have got the helmet but bought one last week elsewhere.

Got a pair of the men's shorts today. Going to buy another two pairs tomorrow, really impressed with them!

Nice bike. I have the Pro which is similar but a few different parts and I love it!!

Computer works fine, no problems getting it to work and the viewing angles

I had no problem getting mine to work and the viewing angles were fine. I have a Cateye strada on my other bike and this Lidl one has more functions, only downside is that its massive and ugly compared to the Cateye, but it functions well enough.
