/ cheap but decent cycle stuff
Want decent quality but not expensive as it's only a commute to work.
go to sports direct?
What's the stuff like there?
I have one of their cheap muddy fox cycle jackets it's ok but not breathable as I would expect for the price and a couple of their muddy fox cycle tops which are fine
Planet X is good, as is wiggles own brand dhb range of clothing
Another vote for Planet X, especially.
I also got some good summer tops (funkier brand) from Chain Reaction, and of course when they become available, Aldi is superb value
Just used the overshoes I got from there recently and my feet were lovely and toasting.
Got some other stuff, some good bargains to be had, especially for limited commuting.

It's not great, i've been using a muddy fox bib this summer, looks ok and the qualty seems good but it's just really uncomfortable. Polaris is as cheap as i'll go from now on.
What they said - Decathlon. Not too sure about their shorts though - I've just bought a pair of their orange pad shorts and the pad seems to be too far back - fine for sit up cycling but not so good for ar*e up/nose down, which is strange seeing as those are supposed to be their top end shorts.
This morning: boxers, socks, shorts, winter running tights, thermal top and gloves all Decathlon. Gloves are the £16 leather and softshell Simond climbing ones.
Shoe covers - Endura neoprene - tried the cheap ones - waste of money - fell apart.
Glasses - Bolle Contour clear safety glasses - £8 off ebay. I have a tinted pair too.
Shoes, polyprop liner gloves, club jersey and helmet - model's own!
Aldi when they have specials?
Decathlon has an excellent price/quality ratio. Don't go for their cheapest stuff though - I have learned the hard way that the old mantra of "buy cheap, buy twice" is, unfortunately, true (at least for me).
