    Lidl have some cycle things in on Monday.

    Track pump, light sets,HRM,bags, etc.

    I've had my track-pump 3 years and it's still going strong, methinks I'll get another one as a back-up, just in case.

    The track pump has been more than adequate for keeping the tubs on my son's Zipps up to pressure. Very good value.

    Wahey! Cheers ta Mr Paul/Phoebus! I was up bright and early in Acocks Green Lidl and snaffled a pump, a couple of tools and a thermal running top with thumb loops which will be a good base layer when winter comes. All for the grand sum of £11.97.

    last time lidl did cycling stuff, i got there at lunch time and a lot of it was gone (dean row store), and a bloke in a ctc sweatshirt had almost a trolley full!.

    last time aldi did cycling gear i sent mrs alecetc first thing, just as well because it was an absolute scrum.

    Nice rack bag for the work bike £5.99 from the Burgess Hill branch just after eight, virtually deserted.

    I bought a bag too. Looks just the job for taking small amounts of stuff on the pannier. Pump and tool look adequate.

    It starts here on Thursday: had a sneak preview. There'll be a few purchases, no doubt!
    Has anyone bought the rain jacket and trousers? If so, any good? :blush:

    I was looking at one of the jackets today that someone had taken out of the packaging, it actually seemed quite decent.

    I had to control myself at lunch time in 'my' LIDL - I had gone spend crazy. Pump for £2.00 already safely under arm and I was starting to look at the lights and the HRM but remembered I still needed a sandwich and a huge beef tomato (that was 29p just on it's own).

    Then decided to act the big dept manager and bought a pack each of American style Brownie and Apple cookies. The biccie barrel at work is bulging (and for only 49p a pack).


    Last time, I bought some trainer style cycle shoes and a set of spd pedals and was well pleased.

    This is where a buff comes in really handy, no-one can see you salivating.
