I got one of these and it's perfect for me.it doesn't go all the way to the ground, sort a line below the axles and under the foot pegs. I use it mainly as a dust cover.might struggle with top box and panniers so just sharing a cheap alternative

This arrived today, unfortunately I'm sending it back.

Firstly, it seems like a good cover and quality is reasonable. I'd expect it to last as long as, if not longer than the Oxford one. However, it's just not big enough with the top box on.
I'd be happy to keep it, but I decided that I use the top box almost daily and there's no point taking it on and off all the time.

Therefore I've sent it back and now ordering a L Oxford one with top box.

I think the M will do but the L is less than a pound more, so I'll play safe.

Here's a picture of the new cover on and compared to my old Oxford M.






I'll post some comparison pictures up when the new cover arrives, just so anyone else can see the difference.

Brill thanks look forward to seeing how you get on, I havenít ordered one yet, itís mainly to be an indoor dust cover for me, but to be used outdoors as and when required.

Well here it is...

A bit of a delay with ordering, I had a problem using my gift voucher over the weekend and had to wait until Monday to speak to their customer service. Nevertheless service was excellent as always from SBS, I ordered a couple of things and they arrived yesterday.
I've just got home from a night shift and this is the result from first use.






A picture of the bag it comes in just so others know exactly what there looking for if buying one. The bag is a neat touch, I've kept it for now but it'll inevitably end up in the bin soon, you can never get them back in there!

This is the L with top box and I'd say it's plenty big enough and fits perfectly.
I reckon you could get away with the M if you wanted a bit of a snug fit but the XL would definitely be too big!

Hope this helps and here's the link too, on sale at the moment.
