where do you go online for good prices on quality cycling clothes? I dont care if theyre plain or plastered with pro logos, as long as theyre made well and the price is low. Ive found probikekit.com and bicyclinghub.com. what else is there? thanks

www.longscycle.com

www.bikejerseys.com

www.gearlink.com

www.nashbar.com -- particularly their blowouts and returns.

You can always catch sales at performance.com, coloradocyclist.com, excelsports.com, etc..... I've had my best luck at probikekit and bikejerseys.com

I don't know about US, but at Germany the cheapest cycling clothes can be bought in ALDI (I guess they operate in US as well). They have them only 2 weeks per year (one in spring and one in early autumn), bu prices are unbeliviable and qulity not top but very reasonable. Clothes usually are slightly ugly but very comfy. E.g. short-arm jersey (CoolMax) 9 EUR, long-arm winter jersey (CoolMax, 3 pockets) 10 EUR, shorts (or bibs) 9 EUR, long cycling knickings 12 EUR, jacket 12 EUR and so on.

And I would say that my short-arm jersey from ALDI is much more comfy than my Gortex CoolPower jersey taht costs 7 times more.

Well, the prices you mention do look attractive ! Any Aldi stores or supermarkets in France ?
And have you heard of not too expensive and quality cycling clothes on line in Europe ?

Velowear.com has sales and specials every month that can be very attractive. Great bibs, shorts, knickers and tights.

I rely also on bikejerseys.com and probikekit.com.

Good luck

Besides probikekit.com, I've ordered from longscycle.com, sierratradingpost.com (occasional great deals), Nashbar, Performance, and worldcycling.com (WCP, the last, is usually outrageously expensive, but they have a nice sale in the spring).

There are a few Aldi's here in GA-metro Atlanta to be exact. I've never been in one, so I can't comment about the cycling clothes, but yes, Aldi is in the US.
