- What's the oldest bit of cycle clothing you still use?…
For me it’s a ‘Think Pink’ cycling fleece that I bought in 1994. It gets dragged out of storage every winter and is still looking good 18 years and 1000’s of miles on!
Second would probably be some Nike winter bibtights I bought over 10 years ago. Considering the abuse they get in winter rides they still perform very well.Posted 5 years agoeyerideitMember
1. Gore Windstopper jersey 2003.
Bit bobbly on the mesh from bags/packs, a few scuffs on the shoulder from a cartwheel but still works and the printed logo is still there.
Bought when on sale for £50 and has been worn all year round on and off road since. Absolute bargain.
2. Helly Henson Lifa thermals
They never seem to wear out, my oldest must be from about 1997 and can’t tell it apart from the newer ones.Posted 5 years agomanton69Subscriber
Lotto trade team top from 1987.
Patagonia reversible high-vis wind proof top 1989
Full set of Mint Sauce team jerseys
Not in to retro, but I just don’t change shape and have looked after my kit. That said the amount of bib shorts I have been through does not bare thinking about, especially when you started on real chamois inserts. 🙂Posted 5 years agoracefaceec90Member
i still use (occasionally) my old dayglow local motion gloves (green/pink fluro) with rubberized armour on the tops (looks like something from tron 😉
i always have to do spiderman type web hand movements when i put them on 😳
edit should’ve added about 1991-2 vintage 🙂Posted 5 years agowarpcowMember
Endura thermaclip bib longs. Warmest leggings ever . They are about 15 plus years old. I only use them when it’s quite cold(-1 on my road ride today). I have used them down to -23 in Scotland. I’m now thinking about getting another pair. Great bit of kit
Same here. Got them as a Christmas present in the mid-to-late 90s and still used them just this morning.Posted 5 years agomosSubscriber
Do you remember when steve peat & tom edwards were on thr mbuk team? They were sponsored by gt bikes & nike for clothes. I thought the nike stuff was the coolest.Posted 5 years ago
Well, i still have one of the black/orange fleece gilets that they had on in that video they made. Its a bit snugger than i used to be, but perfct for this time of year.
And some of those endura themaclip bibs, had them in this morning actually.
