    Never buy a helmet second hand - they could be damaged though you can't see

    Not worth the risk

    Edit - some cheap ones here lidsdirect.co.uk/epa…bit

    +1 on this. Buy the best new helmet you can afford.
    Lidl were doing cheap biking clothes last week. Might be worth checking a local store if you have one nearby as they might still have some in stock.

    Yeah i do...where are you? I have just put my bike on ebay so am looking to get rid of stuff...you are welcome to come look if you are close...also what size are you? I have boots, over trousers and a jacket

    I'm based West midlands- Birmingham

    ooh what bike?
    I'm a small man, but obviously be a bigger size in clothing.
    32"
    Let me know.

    Probably worth popping into your local bike shop and have a look round, talk to people about the kit as buying s/hand stuff is fine as long as you are getting good quality used and not poor quality. Not always easy to tell if you do not know what to look for.
    Also depends on the type of biking you want to do, if its touring you will need different kit than if you are just gonna ride on a sunday in the dry weather...
    Get it right and you will not end up buying the kit over again trying to get it right..

    Cheers for that gari, rep left.

    Stay away from the Aldi & Lidl gear, it really is ***** !

    If you can't afford the correct gear, imo, you shouldn't be given a license. In the event of an accident, there is only that between you & the road - so buy decent stuff !!
