    ...it's calling me....I need to resist....it's not a question of need, more a compulsive resolute and pressing desire to see what I might one day need....is this cyclist related illness?

    Most definitely a cycling illness. Get to the doctors immediately. Counseling would help as well. You must resist such urges and take a cold shower straight away. Failing that cut up your credit card and repeat the mantra, I must not buy new bits for my bike:ohmy:

    P.S. Also remember that cycling shops are dens of iniquity, they are there only to relieve you of your hard earned cash, you must resist at all costs.

    I can't help going into Decathlon in Stockport as I pass it at least once a week for work. It doesn't help when they have clothing at vastly reduced prices such as the Biemme bibtights that I saw last month, fifteen quid down from forty.

    Luckily there was some kids padded baggies for £3.99 reduced that I bought for my lad, this went some way to offseting the grief that I would normally get. :evil:

    I have a £3 loyalty voucher that NEEDS spending !! I pass very close to Stockport Decathlon on my bike every day.....but so far have resisted the urge to call in - something to do with not dripping in sweat in the store. Usually pop in at the weekends !

    Go... and be very critical! Tell yourself, as you look at the Btwin stuff, 'yeah, but it ain't Assos'... or whatever. Convince yourself that it's really just one step above tat and you're on your way to a cure.

    These days, I have little urge to visit Decathlon. I know what is there and it fails to excite me any more. It's only when I NEED something that I go in now.

    I'll beat you there BTFB. I'll be in the shiny new bits section, or in the changing room trying on a new set of bibs. Or most likely drooling over their top end road bikes. :thumbsup:

    You don't have to spend in there (but it helps).:biggrin:

    I saw sodding great signs for Decathlon while driving in Castellon Spain. Ooh, ooh....

    Could i find it....:evil::angry:! Sodding signs were probably bigger than the store. Gutted.

    I always spend a friggin' fortune in Decathlon (in real terms) when I go.

    The one in Antwerp is notorious for being impossible to find. There are huge but useless signs on the ring road, and cavalcades of German and Dutch motorists keen to save a few bob driving endlessly through the Antwerp one way system. They have to send soup and sandwiches out on sale days :evil:

    I saw a nice ladies cycling top on that site, Medium blue, with just one sleeve a different colour, but cannot find the size chart. Where do they keep it?

    I couldnt find it either...I just ordered the shirt and left a note with the order stating that if the XXXL size isnt 44"+ they should call me before sending it
