Testimonials

"The gear is fantastic to ride in." - Glenn Archer (AFL legend), Melbourne VIC

“Although not an avid cyclist, I manage to turn the legs over for about 150km a week and have tried a variety of brands and I can certainly say that it is one of the better ones! The kit is very comfortable. The quality of the material means a snug fit that hugs and supports the body so there’s no unsightly sagging, and the bib style knicks ensure there’s no discomfort from ill-fitting shorts with waistbands. The chamois is not bulky, and very comfortable to wear even for the longer rolls down the coast or through the hills around the city. I am very happy with my investment and anticipate this to be the first of many Retro-Velo kits for me!” - Claire, Melbourne VIC

"It's awesome kit!" - Neil, Albury NSW

"I bought a jersey and knicks because I like the retro look - I am over riding in the same Euro team kit as everyone else. Great quality! I really like wearing them." - Troy, Sydney NSW

"Brilliant knicks and top - looks great! Very comfortable and the Resolute set has drawn a lot of admiring comments." - Ian, Adelaide SA

"I think the gear is awesome." - James, Sydney NSW

"The gear is fantastic. I have the Shady Cloth jersey and bib knicks which I wear with the Retro-Velo arm warmers. The kit looks very cool and it feels great to wear. The service at Retro-Velo is fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. I am looking forward to seeing what other products they offer in the future! - Ben, Melbourne VIC

"I just wanted to write to say how great the outfit is that I ordered online from Retro-Velo (Amici Women's kit). The top and knicks fit perfectly and arrived in no time at all! Thanks so much." - Amanda, Melbourne VIC

 

"Here's a pic of me atop the Col d la Colombiere, a famous stage of the Tour de France over many years, in the Retro-Velo kit. I loved your kit, the bib knicks would rate as the most comfortable I own, the chamois is fabulous, especially for long rides. The fit and the quality of the gear is fantastic, after weeks of riding around the French Alps following the TDF everything still looks and feels as good as new (the kit does anyway, not too sure about myself). I received plenty of comments about the style and design, all favourable, with loads of people asking about ‘Shady Cloth Cycles’ and the history behind them. Thanks again." - Trevor, Melbourne VIC
