I can vouch for MAAP, very high quality stuff, I have a couple of their kits. Pricey but very much worth it.

My personal opinion of Twin Six is that they're shoddy, mid-tier kit with me-too designs. I'd avoid them. Attaquer stuff is nicer, but if you're wearing those prints, you'd better be first or last. No in-between there. :cool:

I'll add Velocio and Machines for Freedom to this list, especially for the ladies of the forum. (Though Velocio has some slick men's kit, too.)

https://velocio.cc/ - Classic solids and some subdued prints
http://machinesforfreedom.com/ - More adventurous prints and high-gloss finishes

I use my LBS for 95% of my bike related purchases. If they don't have it I search ebay.

Just a reminder that most stores are doing sales. Merlin and Sigma have some extraordinary prices. Just got a pair of Bont Blitz for half the price with free (tracked) postage at Merlin! Sigma had the same shoes more or less the same price but had to pay an extra 25 bucks for delivery.

Most of my purchases are from Ribble. Usually in my mailbox in Canada in a week. My B&M lighting products I buy from XXCycles in France. Good pricing, fast shipping.

I sometimes use Wiggle but pricing is generally not as good as Ribble.

I especially like merino stuff.
It' just different feeling then wearing those polyesters which really make me feel like wearing recycled plastic bottles.


I'm a huge fan of merino, pretty much don't wear anything else except a friends Cafe's kit. Thanks for the link, little pricey for me at the moment though... :(


As am I. Used to like to get Cima Coppi when they were in Vancouver. Then they moved to Spain, and now add in the import duties and shipping to Canada and it is way outside what I am comfortable paying for a cycling jersey.

Still and all, nice stuff.

I remember that pic from the face thread. You look a Sagan-Boonen hybrid.

If only I could ride like that! To be fair that probably is how I ride, just about 50x worse than them...

CRC and Wiggle are now one.
I wonder if they'll carry on with two websites or if they'll eventually merge them into one?

Well Wiggle have just announced that there are hundreds of jobs at risk at the CRC warehouse in NI so I think that it's the first step to merging websites too.

The best online cycling stores aren’t the wild-west, buyer-beware world that characterized Internet shopping in its earliest days. They are multi-million dollar businesses, some multi-hundred million dollar businesses run by professional management and financed by sophisticated investors who see their solid financials and a decade long growth path ahead.

That list pretty much sums it up. There is no one stop shopping place, you have to scan them for sales, although most of my stuff is purchased at Performance or Nashbar.

There's also a Google extension, it is a hit and miss thing though, but it always alerts you to specials which can drive you nuts (of course you can enable and disable it anytime you want) and still not find what you want, or you might see something you want and then it will be cheaper then anywhere else more times than not; https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chainlove-countdown-timer/ljppcglljemjablfhgjdhndlpallobpl?hl=zh-CN
