Buying cycling clothes in Bangkok

Hi,

I do road cycling and I am going to Bangkok in a few days.

I want to get myself some less expensive cycling bibs, jerseys, gloves, leg/arm/feet warmers. Perhaps even some glasses.

I am not looking for some branded products, but would like to get some good pieces for around 20 USD per jersey + bib.

Is there a place you would recommend me to go? How can i find it?

Thanks a lot for your help and with kind regards,

Leg Warmers? It's freaking hot and humid in Bangkok!

Probably like a lot of people, who are looking to buy 'inexpensive' good quality stuff to take home with them, rather than for wearing in Thailand.

LancasterLad knows exactly what i mean!

Any ideas where i could get inexpensive, but good quality cycling clothes - to take back home, where it is 13C in the middle of August

Like a lot of people they don't go looking for cold climate cycling clothes in a hot tropical country. The only cycling clothes available here are for the local climate and most are foreign branded goods.

He posted the question on other forums. Must be keen.

Real brand names are not cheap in Thailand.

thanks for your replies. I am not after brand.
I would be happy to get inexpensive cycling clothes of a reasonable quality - nothing cutting edge.

Would you know any such place?

A few years back, we went looking for bike stuff for my husband. There was a shop by Lumphini Park that had a lot of
stuff, but it wasn't any cheaper that what is sold in Hawaii. Looking up bike shops online, Probike looks like where we were shopping.

Good luck!

Again, I have not yet seen any cycling clothes for the cooler climate and all the brands are foreign.

However, there's a new 25 Kilometres cycling track that is very popular at Suvarnabhumi Airport and you might want to send them an email and ask. The cycling club that operate the track is "Life Cycling".

1st input line: your name
2nd line: your email
3rd line: telephone number but not necessary to input.
4th line: subject also not necessary to input
5th line: ask away!
