Sadly no we're not on a royalty. We have got one original set as a very long term investment

Saw one of those for sale in a shop in S Wales last week - sticker price was £39.95. Tempting tho the top was it was too pricey for me.

Not from this one, but for research I did use one of these far eastern sites.

It for a follow up to this... http://road.cc/content/blog/25138-hunting-bargain ...which I haven't written yet!

Team Sky jersey for less than £22, and its ok. Washes alright and has a nice mesh panel down each side.

Does the job, which was kind of the point of the piece.

Took a risk and ordered a bibshort/ss jersey set and thermal bibtight/ls jersey set. £76 with postage.

They say you get what you pay for so aren't holding out much hope, not too worried about the jerseys but cheap shorts are generally not worth the bother. Mind you with my mileage it probably won't matter!

Will let you know what they are like when/if they arrive.

Keep us posted

£76 is a bit of a punt so good luck.

There may have been a quantity of Stella Artois involved in the purchasing decision...

Those supermarket deals sometimes work out a little more expensive than they first seem. Blushing
