    Not much that's bike-friendly, but might make family trips more comfy.
    Then next Wednesday, there's

    They will be great for you to wear in the shower, cos we all know that you need to wear thongs in the shower when camping at caravan parks. :D

    My well-worn Aldi pants have split a seam - it looks like there is NO spare material inside the stiching. I thought "Ah, well two or three years more or less constant use isn't too bad for the $80 or whatever it was I paid". (My leathers seem to have inexplicably shrunk in the meantime...)
    That evening, I saw that at the Eltham store, the bike pants are reduced to $19.95... Needless to say, I grabbed another 3 years supply.
    These are different, however - much heavier outer material, no removeable liner, but they do have elastic & velcro on the bottoms of the legs, the armour seems thicker, and they have reflective bits.

    They do seam to 'improve' the products each time they come out.

    Picked up a motorcycle cover ..$15 (half price). Some things hang around, others sell out at their 'normal' price.

    Anyone have experience or advice on the Bauhn products. The 50" telly is at a really good price.
    or is a smaller Samsung at the same price a better buy?

    I bought a smaller tv about a year ago and the picture is adequate but the speakers are rubbish. I can barely hear it at 2-3 metres.
