Very good for the money, but more spent will usually mean better fitting and longer lasting

Red shorts are not a terribly safe choice ... http://acapella.harmony-central.com/attachment.php?s=00ca705b5873ecf685d9d97be9f68835&attachmentid=237301&d=1184107734 xx( (probably NSFW)

Decent quality. Generally i'd say each thing they do is comparable or better quality that the competition at the price point - eg their cheap stuff similar to aldi/lidl, their more expensive stuff comparable to altura, nalini etc.

For lycra shorts then black is the popular choice for good reason, particularly if you ride in the rain :biggrin:

I was also considering something like the dhb Aeron http://www.wiggle.co.uk/dhb-aeron-cycling-short/

As long as I breathe, I attack.
The decathlon 3 rated shorts are fine for shorter distances, up to 40 miles or so then i got uncomfortable.The 5 rated shorts are fantastic , i use them for club runs and long rides and they are comfy for many hours.

I have a large supply of the b'twin cycle tops. I sometimes use them as casual tee-shirts.

Great price of £7.99 (or cheaper in the sale).

I don't like tight fitting shirts so these are ideal, although the sizes are a bit odd. I need a 3XL but I am nowhere near that big (honest)

If you know what's good for you ...
I am not a fan of Décathlon (in France they have practically killed all the other bike shops); but sometimes even I have to admit that some of their stuff is quite good - and their clothing certainly is. I have had two Décathlon tops for five years now and they're both as good as new - unlike my Endura Night Vision top which is threading in many different places after only one year. I've also got a pair of Décathlon shoes: still going strong after 6 years.

I have nothing but the cheap decathlon shorts/longs and have had no problems whatsoever. One pair developed a tiny hole in the knee . . . after I crashed the bike :biggrin:

The red top is fine. Nothing special but for a few quid they're good value. I think that sums up decathlon stuff really, not the best you can get but great value for money.
