Online purchases...Lou M

Has anyone purchased from longscycle.com online? They have some unique jerseys but their site seems shady? I don't think the page is secured. The worst part is they don't take phone orders!! Just wondering if anyone had experience with them?

Also, how about bikejerseys.com? they seem better about security, anyone w/good/bad experiences?

I normally buy my stuff online from cbike.com, nothing but good things to say about them.

By the way, looking to buy some jerseys online, any feedback will be appreciated...

Thanks.

bikejerseys.com is on the up-and-up. I've ordered Santini bibshorts from Hank at bikejerseys more than once. His orders have always been spot-on and processed and delivered quickly. I don't know anything about longscycle.

I did order once from Long's. No problems. I didn't order again mostly because I decided I wanted to buy higher quality stuff in the future, and the shorts I got from Long's were pretty low-end stuff.

bikejerseys.com is legitimate. I've bought several things from them with no problems & really good service. Haven't done longscycle.

LongsCycles: I recently ordered "grab bag" socks and arm warmers. The socks were great - all "DeFeet" brand. six for $18. The arm warmers were DeFeet too. A great deal. Personally, I thought most of their jersies were really ugly, hence the close-out prices.

I have purchased a jersey or two from bikejerseys.com Quality stuff. I haven't bought shorts or bibs since I'm very particular about those (I buy Voler).

If you like cheap clothes, try the UK outfit WWW.probikekit.com First rate clothes at very cheap prices. I ordered some knickers and long bibs. It took two weeks to get here, but worth the wait.

I have bought jackets from longscycle on two occasions. Can't complain about the service. Also used overstock.com and delivery was very quick. The hard part is to find stuff in your size that you really like!

I use them a bit; good quality for not a whole lot of money. If you go to their bargain-basement stuff, you will get, well, bargain-basement stuff. But I like Giordana shorts and their prices on these are pretty good.

I had no problem with Longs... beware of the sizes there, much of the stuff is Euro sized, so usually you need to order a size larger than you would US sizes. Longs jerseys are quite a bargain.
Both are quite legit . . .DCW

but generally offer different categories of gear. Bikejerseys.com, as you can see, is largely first quality pro kit. By the way, try the Chamois Butt'r if you are concerned about chafing. When you order something, they throw in a small sample.

They are small operations rather than mammoth on-line stores. I've generally shied away from Long's jerseys and shorts (except for Russian and Chinese kit for my teenagers), but have probably bought 15 pair of socks (DeFeet for about $3/pr.) and six pair of arm warmers, several leg warmers, etc. Very pleased with quality of all. (I give a lot of these to my cycling buddies for Christmas gifts.) I once ordered grab-bag gloves. Very cheesy, but I got what I paid for.

Very good shipping times and no problem with payment, security, etc. (so far as I can tell) with either.
