My local Lidls have:

Southmead Branch - virtually none of the cycling gear - just the t shirt I think. Bedminster Branch
- shorts, helmets, pumps, lights, t shirts, socks, saddles, gel saddle covers.

But neither has the computer which is what I was after.

Anyone know of a South West England or South Wales Lidl that has them? Or alternatively another
source of a computer for around a fiver ("my first computer" :) )

I got a reasonable one from Wilkinson's for £6.99 - Atech 8AK: all the usual basic functions, very
compact & light & neat; bracket slightly dodgy though but fixed ok. The shops do change models from
time to time so you might not get such a good one.

If you can push the boat out to £13 (go on!:), the Echo 7 from Dyason's
is good. Its mode button is a bit squashy but you might not mind that :

I do NOT recommend the 1p (yes, one penny!) computer SJS Cycles are selling. Chunky, difficult
to setup, and most importantly, does not have full auto start and stop. And don't forget postage
is a fiver.

Cheers - I'll take a look tomorrow, theres a Wilkinsons just round the corner.

They have all the stuff in the Letchworth, Herts branch including computers. Didn't buy anything but
did notice their sign said £2 or £4 (can't remember which) cheaper than Argos so I would guess you
can get it from Argos.

The Branch in Wells, Somerset have them and most of the other stuff too.

On the Lidl website there appear to be panniers and rack mounting briefcases which I'd like a look
at, anyone know if these are available anywhere? The release dates of some products seem different
in England than in Germany.

I think Halfords sell cheap and cheerful computers too.
