How much does shipping cost ?

For orders to the UK, the delivery charge is £1.99 for orders below £20 and free shipping for orders of £20 and above. (Just select Free Shipping as your shipping method).

For international orders for addresses outside of the UK, the delivery charge is variable depending on where the order is shipped to. The rate is shown on the checkout page.

How long do you take to ship items.

Most domestic orders are sent by Royal Mail 2nd Class. For large and bulky items we occasionally use alternative carriers. All international orders are sent by airmail. We aim to ship all orders received by 14:30 UK time out the same day (Monday – Friday).

Please note we are a very small business (of one person most of the time) that we occasionally are closed for holidays. We will endeavour to put a notice on our homepage if we are shut.

What is the quality of the vintage jerseys like ?

We hand pick all our vintage jerseys, so that we get the best quality. Most of the vintage jerseys we sell are used. As such, there may be a small amount of fabric wear and/or pulls. We try and list any visible defects such as these in the product description. All of our vintage jerseys are genuine – not modern reproductions.

What size jersey should I buy ?

Jersey sizing varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and country to country. For example an Italian made size XL jersey can sometimes be the same size as a US size medium. We recommend that you go on the dimensions we have measured on the jersey and compare it to any jerseys that you may have already.

For our new jerseys we put in the product description a guide to whether the manufacturers sizing is accurate.

How do I look after my jersey ?

We ride a lot and wash our own jerseys a lot as we don’t like to smell ! We recommend that jerseys are hand washed (or use the hand wash setting on your washing machine). If you must put them in the washing machine wash them at 30° C. Don’t use conditioner, don’t tumble dry them and don’t iron them – it sounds a faff but they do dry fairly quickly (even in Northern England in winter).

I’m not sure which size fits me ?

Buying clothes over the internet can be a bit of a guess as you cannot try them on. You are more than welcome to buy one of each size and send back the one you don’t want for a refund as long as the item is sent back in ‘as new’ condition and you are willing to pay the return postage.

What is your returns policy ?

We appreciate that some items are bought as presents and offer a 45 day returns period, starting from when you receive the item. We only accept items back in the same state that we sent them. This includes and garment labels being still attached as unless the item you bought is defective we will put it up for sale again.

Please e-mail us before sending your item back, so we can look out for it.

If you wish to exchange an item please contact us so we can put a replacement item on one side.

The invoice that is sent with your goods is also your returns slip so please include a copy of this when you return an item.

Please note that unless the item is defective you will have to pay the return postage.

What payment methods do you offer ?

We take payment by Paypal, Visa and Mastercard.

Our credit card payments are processed by Realex on their secure server. Realex are one of the world’s largest card processing companies and are HSBC’s preferred card payment provider in the UK.

Paypal payments are taken via Paypal’s secure server.

We take internet security seriously and our site is PCI compliant.

We also can take card payments over the telephone.

Do you have a bricks and mortar store I can visit ?

We are primarily a mail order based business and do not have retail premises and have no facilities for customers to try gear on. You are however welcome to come and collect items and have a chat about bikes. Please call before visiting to ensure that we are in.

If you do contact us we will reply to you as soon as possible as we always keep an eye on our inbox.
