    Cheap kits from China/HK on Ebay -- any experience?

    Anyone have experience ordering from these guys? Sure, I expect the quality isn't the best, but hoping to find out that whether the things just fell apart or bled out in the first few rides or something. Would be for daily training; not trying to pose like I'm factory or anything...

    Here's one I'm thinking of:

    My girlfriend got 2 Asian imported cheap kits. They're pretty nice! Jersey feels nicer than my fox, hincapi, and perf bike jerseys. The shorts have a cheap chamois, but better than my cheap fox shorts.

    Great for <3 hour rides. Hers haven't faded or fallen apart after 3 or 4 washes. It's casual ride stuff, but that works for most people.

    Durability isn't that bad but the material is very thin. Not used to roadie kits though so maybe that is normal. I have fox, pi, tld, etc and the material is quite a bit thicker and seems more durable in the long run. Also, make sure you order at least two sizes bigger as these run very small.

    Some of the chinese kits are resized for americans. They'll usually state if its chinese sized, or american sized. A chinese large is an american small.

    They are thin though. If you're a crasher, id second guess them.
