    I got a lock, lightweight jacket, road bike shorts and one of the £7.99 jerseys.

    Just done a MTB ride with the jersey on and the lightweight jacket and they are fine.

    I’d say the jacket is more of a summer item just to take the chill off if its a bit nippy, I wouldn’t want to use it in a downpour or cold weather.

    The jersey just has one big pocket, not the usual 3

    It was like a pantomime in the store with about 30 people queuing up outside waiting for 10am and the stuff was being thrown around as people looked for their sizes. They must have took a fortune in that first hour.

    Bought a convertible soft shell for £16. Will it be x10 worse than the Gore Alp-X I bought last year on which the seams popped on the 2nd ride? Doubt it.

    I’ve got a lightweight waterproof that is at least three years old and has been through the wash loads of times, still performs perfectly well until it is really overwhelmed by lashing rain as happened a couple of times this winter. It is ‘boil in the bag’ material, but it has the classic roadie ‘gap and overlap’ for ventilation. Some things just work and this has to be one of the best value items of kit I have. Other stuff has mostly been excellent from Aldi as well. One gilet has a duff zip after about three wearings, but other than that I think the aldi gear is pretty good. I might nip in for a spare pair of shoes tomorrow.

    Bought the soft shell and the red bag, both for commuting. The yellow bag is tiny 6ltrs

    I was going to go but the thought of the inevitable bunfight at the Oxford store put me off so I just had a ride instead. Asked my ex to see if the Aldi Weymouth has a hydration bag still. Always seems quieter down ther.

    popped down at 10 and was amazed that people were queueing to get in!

    How much would a supermarket give for that on a Sunday morning?

    Made a special trip to look at the stuff, unfortunately I went yesterday as I got confused. Chuff!

    I bought one of the flimsy-feeling gilets – fingers crossed

    Bought some medium undershorts fit me everywere apart from where the grippers are, there is about 1/2″ of extra material

    My mate and I went for long ride today. My personal shopper went to Aldi on my behalf and I have flimsy but very small when scrunched up gilet, a spiral lock as my new café lock – bit heavier than I expected actually, and a pair of the casual shorts

    The shorts look and feel amazing – some sort of softshell material, no superfluous pockets, no so sure about the padded inner shorts but the size large – 34-36″ is actually a perfect fit for my 35″ waist!

    Are you listening, Endura? 👿
