Wiggle: UK’s #1 Online Cycle Shop Takes on the World

Whether you’re into online shopping or not, odds are you’ve heard of this explosive company out of the UK called…Wiggle.  In the past 10 years they have officially become the United Kingdom’s top online cycling shop and are on their way to being the number 1 online cycling retailer in the World.

The crew over at Wiggle are self-proclaimed ‘bike nuts’ and from the contact I’ve had with them, I can honestly say that they have great style and awesome customer service.  I actually first heard about Wiggle in a post by my man Wade over at Cycling Tips when he interviewed their CEO.  Wade is generally on top of all things cycling so I knew that this was a company to look out for.

So when I received an e-mail from one of their marketing guys about doing a review on some of their products, I jumped right on it.  Wiggle sells everything from bikes and accessories to clothing and components…and everything in between.  Unfortunately they didn’t send me over a new bike to review, but what they did send over was still very impressive and appreciated.

Although these reviews are on the products sent, what really should be reviewed in this post is the use of Wiggle for online shopping.  In my opinion they are doing things right and I would definitely recommend them if you’re buying online.

Oh, and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to find out about your chance to get a free pair of dhb R2.C cycling shoes.  This one is going to have a limited audience for entry, and I explain more down below.

 dhb Chevron Air jersey

About a year ago I had a pretty dismal collection of jerseys, but have since then collected a bunch and shared my opinion of them along the way.  The dhb Chevron Air jersey doesn’t have any fancy graphics or things like that, but delivers a comfortable fit and plenty of breathing features for those hot weather rides.

The Chevron Air design parameters were simple – visual impact and ultimate performance. Fabric selections were key to achieving the finished result. A combination of moisture management, temperature control and an unparalleled feeling of speed.

What I Like Best: When I first put the jersey on, I reached back to put a few things in my pockets and originally thought it was missing a middle one.  That wouldn’t have impressed me.  But after taking a closer look I saw that the middle pocket actually has a flapped pocket and allows you to put in items that might be bigger than the regular stuff that can fit in there….and also have it secured in by the upper extended flap.

dhb Aeron Pro Bib Shorts

Would you believe that I never owned a regular pair of bibs until these were sent to me?  I have a pair of knicker length bibs, but only wear those on the chilly winter rides so they haven’t been used all that much.  I know there are a lot of riders who swear by bibs and won’t wear anything but…..and now I kind of see why.

I really have no issues with regular bike shorts, but the more I wear these dhb Aeron bib the more I love them.  I sure hope I don’t get too spoiled because most of my shorts are still of the non-bib variety and will need to keep wearing them each week.
