A new batch of club kit has arrived in Pembrokeshire Bikes. They are now stocking a larger range of sizes of gilet and jersey, from Jane Rees to Bill Ridge.
In addition, they are stocking a quite fantastic winter collection. The winter jacket is fresh from the Paris catwalk. It is windproof, water repellant, has two zipped pockets, does your ironing and walks your dog. The Dynamo arm warmers come in any colour you want (as long as that is black and red) are ideal for autumnal rides and compliment the club jerseys and gilets with a certain je ne sais quoi. These never need winding, never need ironing and if you’re stuggling on the hills they will get off and push. Again these are available in a size range from Mrs Rees to Mr Ridge.
This is likely to be the final batch of stock we order in this year and is available on a first come first served basis. Buy early to avoid disappointment.September 8, 2014 at 4:21 pm #27590MatGMember

I love the idea of riding in club colours, but sadly the cost of the new winter jersey means I’ll stick to the couple of tops I already have (£110). I appreciate that Pembrokeshire bikes are taking the hit in production costs, holding stock and are a business, but at the same time their getting a lot of advertising out of the jerseys being worn, surely that’s worth a discount in the retail?
As a price comparison, Cardiff Ajax jersey £35, Gilet £40, Winter top £60.
Just saying…September 10, 2014 at 5:30 pm #27596MatGMember
Defo the wright thoughts & wotds. £110 for the whole kit maybe ok but for one item crazy. Huw iwould that much ? 🙂September 10, 2014 at 7:50 pm #27597Nick GMember
Par for the course!!September 13, 2014 at 8:12 am #27602
Confession time. I have slightly exaggerated the properties of the new winter kit in an attempt to keep a jokey feel to the post in the hope this may avoid the posting of hair-trigger, ill-judged negative comments.
So to put the record straight.
The winter jersey will keep you warm in the winter. It is water repellent. It is mainly white in the club design. It costs £85.99. It will not do your ironing nor will it walk your dog. Sorry.
The arm warmers will keep you arms warm. They are black and red with Narberth Dynamos on them. It is true that they never need winding nor ironing but I made up the bit about them pushing on the hills. Sorry for any misunderstanding.
As an alternative, an award winning local butcher has given me some old warehouse coats. If you wear these backwards they are a little bit similar to the Tour de France presentation jerseys. They have pockets and quite large buttons. They are not particularly warm nor waterproof but I can sell them quite cheaply. You can write Narberth Dynamos (or any other club) on them in biro. For those so inclined you could also scrawl a random collection of letters and symbols on them in the same way.September 14, 2014 at 6:25 pm #27604RogerMember
Couple of questions:
– what colour biro would work best on the warehouse coats?
– would wrapping yourself in cling film before wearing said coat solve the lack of water repellence?..failing that, maybe lard would be a cheap alternative…? ..after all we all know how expensive cling film is….September 14, 2014 at 6:44 pm #27605mikeyfMember
That’s a bit posh Roger, it was me Nans Cagoule and an old Western Mail down me top when I was a lad!!!February 13, 2015 at 6:15 pm #28009
Due, no doubt, in no small part to MatG’s tireless promotional work, the winter kit has sold extremely well. So well, in fact, that there are only four jerseys unsold in the whole World. We are unlikely to order any of this kit next year so if you want one, or think you may fancy one later, go and buy one now.February 15, 2015 at 5:51 pm #28015ValleyManMember
Sweaty I think you must have spent far too much time watching QVC during your confinement. Do you make such exaggerated claim for the drugs you sell? Can you recommend anything to make me 20 years (oh go on then 30 years) younger as I am still struggling with these dammed hills.February 15, 2015 at 8:43 pm #28016
My bestubbled friend, there is nothing wrong with your riding, it is your thinking that you are struggling with. Look to the positives. There is not a hill in the land that I’ve seen beat you, so you are King of all of them. Also, the longer you take to cycle up the vertical challenges the more time you have to enjoy them. Myself and my cycling companion, Mr Lewis, celebrate the time we spend on these inclines discussing the perspective duality of good and evil and the hidden meanings in Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne. Think yourself lucky that you’re not one of the club’s mountain goats, because once you’ve won the CARTEN, bought the World’s most expensive bike and beaten everyone over the Bwlch then, really, there’s only one way you can go.
If you’re not buying any of that, perhaps some red meat?February 15, 2015 at 11:18 pm #28017ValleyManMember
What more could you want from your local pharmacist than a repeat prescription of bullshit (assuming of course that EPO is out of the question)
