Here are the ones I can find in my Ali order history. Price I paid might not be same now. I've a feeling I've posted these before, but I'll stick them up again! PS I don't want abuse at my choice of clothing thanks!

15-in-1 tool $ 3.43 - never used it yet so no comment on quality!

Novelty summer jersey $ 12-15 - I've found quality fine so far!

Front light $ 5 although the link is now selling a set - absolute junk!

Rear light like a Kickstarter one I paid $ 11.50 - Been really impressed with this one. Stops if the bike is stationary for a while. Very good battery life and loads of modes.

Novelty keyring I paid $ 0.70

Front light can't remember what I paid - Bright, very bright, you won't be missed! Battery ife very good and has strobe options. One of those lights I'm not sure if it p155es motorists off more than it does good. But it does light things up well!

Glasses I paid $ 11.99 - another of my favourite purchases. I'm on my second set now granted but it's over quite a few years. More than one frame, good case, 5 lenses, excellent value!

Racmmer Winter jersey I paid $ 21.00 - another of the purchases I've been very happy with. Kept me nice and warm last winter. I'd normally squeeze happily into Medium in jerseys so ordered a large here just in case and it fits very well. As a note I've found the Racmmer gear really good.

Summer Racmmer jersey paid around $ 14.00 - again I went with Large and still going strong!

Cheji Bib Shorts I paid $ 18.00 - they're grand and still wear them the odd time. Fine for my 30 minute commute, but I reckon they wouldn't be as comfortable on a longer cycle. Don't think the padding is incredible.

Cleaning kit paid $ 9.00 - still haven't actually opened it!

Could post a picture of the jersey you got and how it's different from the Cheji jersey, please.

They're not copies of any jersey I have seen or know of. They're just a Chinese brand and a very well made quality jersey, IMO. I have worn mine several times now and it's a nice jersey than my two Castelli jerseys (Prologo and Free Aero)

Maybe not to everyone's taste but I bought these anodised alloy valve caps for 89c posted. They look so good on my bike. And for the weightweenies, they're no heavier than the plastic caps.

I normally dump the plastic ones off mine. Is there a reason I should be keeping them on?

Emmmm....to fit presta valves, thought that would be obvious?

I always use the dust caps, saves the valve getting covered in dirt/gunk.

Going off other guys reviews of a seller from the Bargain Alerts Thread I ordered the below two jerseys three weeks ago.

Short Sleeve Jersey - Outdoor Cycling World Store - 11euro

http://s.aliexpress.com/ARZ7jaMj

Long Sleeve Jersey - FIA Tech Co - 12.50 euro

http://s.aliexpress.com/r6BjMV7r

I went for a medium on the short sleeve and it fits like a glove, I'd be small on normal tshirts.

Large on the long sleeve just in case I got the sizes wrong and it's a bit looser but will be a grand layering top.

The quality is top class, a lot better than the fakes going around. Took about 10 days, got them delivered via the UK address for Parcel Motel.

Thanks

I'll go for the long sleeved too, never order anything below L from China but your post has me thinking!

Should have posted this in my other post but couldn't find the link.

Raincoat - rockbrosbike Store - 11.29 euro

http://s.aliexpress.com/RZJjuM73

Got this to have in my jersey pocket for the typical Irish summers day. Nice and small when packed up and fits in nice on your back. Have used it for an adventure race running and cycling sections and it does nicely to keep the rain off while not boiling you.

Again I went for a Medium and fits snug over the jersey.

The sign printed on the back of the short sleeve jersey is telling me that I should give 1.5m clearance when overtaking cars on my bike . Either that or it's telling traffic to undertake!

Still mostly pointless. They are most useful for preventing unused tubes from puncturing from the valve.

If gunk gets in, it's not sealed properly I'd think

Only useful in countries where they drive on the wrong side of the road

But i must say, they have some love coloured jerseys

bought 10 of those little silicon bike lights(74cent each), always handy to throw in jersey incase you you stay out a bit later than expected.

Chain cleaner for a few quid has lasted me longer than one bought in bike shop

I'm not getting into a debate about the pro's and cons of valve caps but what I meant is to keep the valve clean so that when it comes to pumping the tyres (in my case before every spin as I have latex tubes) I don't want to be cleaning dirt/gunk off the valve before inflating it which could end up blocking the pump head/attachment.

The thread is for bargains from Alixpress, not to discuss the merits of the items.
