- PSA: Aldi bike stuff 26th September
The shoes might be ok for winter under some endura type over shoes…mind you lifted a pair up when they were in last time (different style shoe) and the weighed about 2kg.
Bought a wind stopper thing a few years ago, its very warm and no pit vents so tend to cook in it and went really bobbly on the back under a pack.
Gloves it is then!
under helmet cycle cap looks stylish! 😀Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
The quality, and cut, of the Crane stuff over the last few years has really fallen off a cliff as far as I am concerned.
I’m still wearing half a dozen winter and summer zip up jackets from 7 or 8 years ago. They’re ace.
Winter ones are fleecy lined, summer ones single layer, both very well made, seemingly indestructable.
Last years equivalent looked awful and the fit was a bit odd to say the least.Posted 4 years ago
Sorry to go against the herd
Well, if a herd is me and Rusty, then I guess you are. I would want to clarify this is not a snobby thing. I am genuinely gutted that their recent stuff fits like a cardboard suit, and has a design that seems to have leaked out of a 80’s fitness class…

Actually I have no idea as my older stuff refuses to die
The red “style” up there is not unlike the red stealth FWIW
What are the gloves like.
They harness BB* technology so a bit sweaty but they are waterproof
Can be a teeny bit cold in really cold weather

So they do mail order
or do you just turn up on the day and hope?
If so does it matter which shop you go to?
Not as much as it used to, as Aldi have loads more stores now. But there are certain stores that seem to get targeted by eBay resellers, and any store near busy commuting areas seem to run out early.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
The new (last year) gloves are not as hard wearing as their older stuff they are warmer but are now winter only as opposed to autumn/winter/spring.
And yes the cut of the jackets has gone a bit wonky. IIRC last one I tried L fit my body but the sleeves were so tight is was like having a blood pressure cuff on both arms. XL was just stupidly enormous body but still had snug sleeves.
Got an old under helmet cap which is fine, that one up there looks well wrong.
was hoping for some more compression tops, dunno if the compression does anything but they are good base layers, maybe spring/summer?Posted 4 years ago
