Saw this in the latest mag. I know there is a keen following here.

No details yet, but you may wish to keep an eye on the shop or next week's mag.

Their cycling jackets and gloves are excellent. Been using one of their jackets for years now.

Any views on the folding electric bike for £499.99?

Lights the blue touch paper and stands well back!

I got a black waterproof top for £20 a few years ago- It's excellent - I use it instead of my Gore. I really should have snapped up another a while later which I saw for a tenner. I very much doubt they will do them again - they seem to have headed off to their vision of "upmarket" on a lot of their cycling stuff - which is either inappropriate for me and/or I feel often nit great value when you can so easily get big brand stuff heavily discounted.

Poop. Was hoping for some cheap panniers as I missed the Lidl ones a few weeks ago.

You've had a close escape honesty - I wouldn't recommend any panniers from Lidl or Aldi. Leaving aside the quality of the construction of the body of the panniers the fixing systems are likely to be shoddy.

Surprised you need such things - had the idea that you were a long time cyclist.

You'd be far better off buying some quality second hand ones on here even if they need minor repairs. With a quality base you can repair for years and years. And the Lidl and Aldi efforts will be long time landfill.

Not for me, I have Ortliebs, but for my daughter. She’s a set of Basil panniers at the moment:

but was thinking of getting a set she can take off separately for our camping holiday in a few weeks as the Basils are joined across the top and don’t come off the bike easily. Didn’t want to spend a lot of money for something that may not have worked out. Oh well.

I bought a very nice, warm cycling jacket from them about 5 years ago.

Does anyone have any information about the mini-pump? It would be useful to have one with a gauge. (Or alternatively a cheap gauge to carry in a saddle bag)

The mini-pump is tempting. It would have been even more tempting if I hadn't picked up a Topeak Road Morph for £5 at February's cycle jumble.
