Wish App for bike accessories, clothing, misc parts.

While most of the things on that app are cheap junk, knock offs, or other I admit I bought a few things the other day.

I've got some jockey wheels, ferrels, cable ends, Fox knockoff socks, cheap riding glasses, and a few other things for like 25 bux total.

I know cheap carbon for your drivetrain and cockpit area is a no no. Done that, broke a seat post while riding

But if you can get some cheap brake bleed kits, chain tools, etc... I don't see that as a bad thing. Granted you get what you pay for.


So what is your take, is it bad to buy cheap things like this?

To me it matters what one is getting. Things like cable end caps or a water bottle cage doesn't really matter who made it.

I'm to poor to buy cheap. Sites like this take advantage of the "I gota have this now" syndrome and "I gota get more stuff" syndrome not to mention it encourages impulse spending. You asked

This site reminds me of MobStub. Very cheap and inexpensive stuff but I have purchased some of their items and they have lasted me for quite some time. Not much in the way of cycling but they have some neat electronic stuff and accessories. These sites are great for getting gifts for people you really don't like. Makes them feel as if you spent a lot on them but you really didn't.

Lol @rola and @John_V both valid points. I installed the jockey wheel on the Haro yesterday. Looks well made. The cassette cleaning brush isn't as pretty as my ParkTools brush that broke, but I bet it lasts just as long.
