I've used BikeInn (and their associated brands) a couple of times. Delivery wasn't as fast as Amazon, nor CRC/Wiggle, but stuff arrived in good time.

I came close to ordering something off them a few weeks ago but a quick search for reviews was enough to put me off. :shock:

I presume its down to whether the actually have the items in stock or not - WHat I bought they did not have, nor could they source [not that they admitted this it was all BS] remained on their website for sale for 5 ish weeks it took me to not get it and get my money back

Seems you may get lucky you may not

I've got a pair too, only real complaint is the small pocket.

I must admit when I wrote the review (that Stu linked to) I gave them a bit of a hard time, but I do like wearing them, especially if I know I will be off the bike and seen in public. They are good looking shorts, and fit well.

Their biggest downfall in my book is that they soak up water when it rains, and they hold it much longer than normal lycra, so I find I get colder quicker in the wet. But if it's dry weather they are nice shorts (I did wince at the price - £150!!, but if in a sale then they could be good value)

Thanks for the v. helpful review! Would you say they are "normal fit"? often have to get L and XL to see if either fit...

They came up “normal”. I am a medium in most things and the medium shorts fit perfectly. I have a 31 inch waist, any bigger and I think a large would be ideal
