    Not known for cycling gear but it may be worth checking out the mens section of TK Maxx. Managed to get some Ronhill 3/4 bib tights for £6 and a couple of Gonso tops for £14.

    Agree. I was in TKMax and picked up a couple of North Face baselayers for a fiver each. The shop just chucks these things in with the pants and grandad thermals section without a second thought.

    Thanks for those. I was going to start a 'spot a bargain' thread... I seem to remember there being a useful one somewhere else, long ago.

    Foska are doing a prelaunch discount on their new 'crash test dummy' shirt for subscribers to their newsletter. A bargain if you're a Foska fan.

    wilko's do quite good bargains...
    I got a pump, tube, tyre levers, and brake blocks today for less than a tenner.
    that style of pump alone in LBS is fifteen quid.

    yeah but my pricey LBS could do a shirt for £20, shorts for £25 and gloves for £5, all bottom of the range stuff, that stuff might be decent but they're really not the areas you want to be saving money imho

    in fact don't get inner tubes from wilko's, they're a genuine work of crapola.

    I'm not sure I'd trust Wilkos brake pads either - but hey!

    if the brands/ages are good fine but shaving money off working parts you rely on?

    Just a heads up on T.K. Maxx again - most of the cycling stuff has moved into their "Final Clearance" section in my local stores (Manchester & Handforth). I've only seen the Gonso jerseys (I like these a lot though) and Montane Featherlight jackets (£20 for the latter, between £8 and £14 for the former). The Montane jackets are the windproof ones, and seem to be either Small, Large, or XLarge sizes.

    Got mine today - very nice piece of kit indeed (went for the black). The sizes seem to be about on a par with Gonso's (I got a large, and it fits me like a Gonso road jersey large, i.e. ok on shoulders and for length, but a bit baggy at the armpit). The neck is big too (I take a 16-16.5 in shirt collars, and this is the first jersey to not need the stretch of the lycra for me to zip it up).

    I bought a dhb longsleeve and shortsleeve in the sale too - the LS is snug in a large, and I'd probably go for an XL if ordering again. The SS dhb top is snugger than the Gil one, but doesn't seem feel quite as nice on, to me at least (cut is fine, it's the material I don't like, I think).

    Still, they're great at these prices.
