Generic zipper, generic elastic sleeve, generic silicone gripper, missing logo on back, missing small zipper and reflective strip. Seller has refunded me but not before calling me a liar and dishonest. Have ordered again via different seller.

Very poor copy by the looks of it, missing the mesh upper section too. The sleeves on the original are one of the nicest features, really soft stretchy material.

Haven't yet - children specific stuff always seemed over priced, compared to the adult stuff. Hoping to get them some of the XS/ XXS adult kit if I can find the right sizing.

Just in general, I've always found the individual sizing charts accurate enough on Ali. I wouldn't really go with "I normally take a large, go up to XL" - just use the sizing charts, and if the seller doesn't have a great one, weigh up the risk!

The Cheji jersey posted earlier is now one of my favourites - anyone recommend anything similar for the autumn - long sleeves and a bit thicker? I'm thinking of a Raccmer

Just received 2 new Racmmer jerseys (after buying one last year) - the quality is still great, but they went a little bit up with size. Last year's L was a race fit for me, the new one is a little bit more comfortable (I'm 6'2)

The ladies XS I got for my wife is very long though, I don't know if she's happy with it yet (she's 5'1)

In real life the XS is actually a little too big for my wife, but after the first spin she is generally happy.

I need a full face helmet for DH MTB and some knee / elbow pads. What is peoples view on the stuff on Ali? I was thinking that the helmet may not have gone through the same safety testing that ones on chain reaction etc would have but the knee / elbow ones should be workable?

I wouldn't be bothered with them to be honest the high end brands are uncomfortable enough to wear I'd imagine the chinese ones are all kinds of terrible.

You'll pick up a 661 lid for half nothing same for their pads.

Another good plug for the Cheij jersey, nice fit and good quality.

I got an XL and for reference I wear a Strike fitted L Vergesport & Large Strike Aero fit racing.

That would be the last item I'd buy, handlebars are one thing not to scrimp on imo.

Just spotted this thread now, I bought the young fella (10) a set of Sky kit. Quality is grand. It's held up well on the wash too. I can't remember my log in details atm, but will try post a link to the store next week.

Best you don't post a link or links to replica gear or discuss it or the thead as will go the same way as all the others that contain links to such kik. Please see 1st post.
