I never stated it was cheap, some of it IMO is crap, but some folks like certain items such as the tankbags. So giving them advanced warning of the offer is at least reasonable

I'd like to see you get a cheaper intercom system 7.82

Aldi's covers are better , so a week or 2 Aldis bike gear will be in, always close run between them, and contrary I have found the quality of some of the stuff to be very good, just use a bit of sense looking.

the gloves I got from lidl lasted winter commuting and still no evident wear, they were cheap enough, bike to bike intercoms seem ok though I've yet to use them on a bike, dead handy for other half to give me a shout when I'm in the shed when lunch is ready, means I get hot bacon and egg butties, no custard though

genrally agree bout talking on bikes but can be useful if the person you are following leaves you behind or you need to stop for oil, fuel and tioilet or in my case to put the bike back together

bike comms have their place, wether bike to bike, or rider to pillion.
Mainly though when a couple of you are off touring, or a long run out.
I haven`t got radios yet for bike to bike, as I use mine mainly for GPS navigation & MP3`s whilst touring in mainland europe, though I haven`t used it for several months now

and if you miss it, it'll all be on ebay at a higher price from the next day!!

last time it was on, there was a guy in front of me with 30 of the battery chargers, he said he was doing the rounds of all the local branches to stock up his own bike shop!!!!

I'm flat broke at the moment, so I'm going to have a good look at the jacket and maybe the gloves as my current set-up is way passed done.

A mate and I bought the bike-to-bike kits from Aldi last year, returned them the next day. No volume, bog-all range even out in the country and shocking clarity.

Sorry, that was Lidl, just remembered.

I got a cheap motorbike waterproof jacket and trousers, thin as buggery, but it kept the rain out for 1100 miles of mostly sideways rain and high wind for five days on my round wales trip last year. It was big enough to fit over my leather jacket and two pair of jeans and very easy to take off. I think it cost about 14 at Lidls.

As usual all the E-Bay Skanks will be waiting at the door to put up the stuff at twice or three times the price....It's usualy good stuff ...thats why the Evil bay snatchers get there first..They don't have jobs and don't get taxed on their evil bay takings .....its a good maker for them....

Well I went to my local Lidl (around the corner from work). to be honest I was impressed with the quality of the kit for the price.

I splashed out and and bought a full set (spend cash I did not have .

The Gloves have armour and Kevlar with leather grips, for something like 12 quid

The Jacket and trousers seem to be good value for the cash, lots of pockets and vents, basic armour with Teflon and something called Cordura. They are CE approved to EN 1621-1. Jacket has a few nice touches like a special pocket for your mp3 player with a slot for the headphones. Most of the pockets reports them as waterproof. removable winter liner and neck cover. Jacket also has Velcro, poppers and a zip, hopefully that should keep some of the rain out. Trousers have built-in adjusters and braces along the lines lines of the jacket, vents, Velcro, poppers and a zip.

Boots seem basic enough leather and were only 30 quid.

All in for just over 150 quid... Now how to I tell the better half we an't doing a food shop.....

looks like Shaggy's right:

The jacket is 39.99 and the trousers are 29.99
