Pull up a chair, grab some coffee, and let’s chat about spandex. Spandex is an amazing fabric for both cosplay and everyday wear. It’s amazing for any project that needs a bit of stretch, whether you’re looking to turn yourself into a superhero or make a pair of sexy yoga pants.

Just to be upfront, I don’t feel particularly skilled at working with spandex. However, I have been dabbling with it for about a year now, so I thought I’d share what I’ve learned along the way.

Bike Pants & Jersey Sale


ABC Bicycle Outlet is closing down. I noticed these Club bicycle shorts or bicycle knicks by UNO which are on sale for $15.00.

I’ve ordered from ABC previously and picked up cycling gloves two seasons ago for $5.00- which are still $5.00.

 

Club knicks

Club cycling knicks by UNO


UNO’s Club knicks  are identical in cut and have the same 3-dimensional (3D) CoolMax insert (chamois) as the Pro Peloton.

Both the Club and Pro Peloton are an  8-panel cut and both are made of qualityDuPont Lycra .

The difference is the Club is made of alighter Lycra , has a slightly shorter leg length, and has no leg gripper.

These 3 points allow them to be offered as entry-level knicks at a very affordable price. The Club knicks can also be worn as under knicks – under shorts, cargo pants, track suit or other loose-fitting trousers.

Available in sizes 2XS-3XL, where 2XS=28″ waist, XS=30, S=32, M=34, etc. 

 

Portsea

 

Portsea short sleeve cycling jersey by UNO

Portsea  for men or women. The AirFlow material is a slightly heavier weave than UNO’s Bondi, Cairns, Grafton and Saul Pasque, but being a  wicking fabric it allows for moisture transformation from the body to keep the rider cool and dry. 

Features include:

  •  3 rear pockets;
  • a full-length zip;
  • and elasticised arm bands and waist .

The Portsea  jersey comes in 2 colours: front & back, plus underarm and shoulder panels, eg:
* red with white panels,
* yellow with black or grey,
* blue with yellow, and
* black with white.

These and other great bargain cycling clothes or bicycle wear can be purchased at ABC Bicycle Outlets.
