I've had both good and bad....

The bad: a few years ago I bought a set of tyre pressure monitoring valve caps for my car. Fitted them and all was fine for a few days then one failed and the tyre went flat. I tried to get my money back but failed.

The good: very recently have bought adjustable footrests and small flyscreen for the XBR. Both arrived before they were promised and both seem to be decent quality.

Actually the stuff there is probably identical to what you would get on ebay or even (at a huge markup) from bike accessory shops as so much stuff is made in China. It's worth remembering that aliexpress is a shop window and supplies stuff from a huge range of manufacturers. Also remember that you pay VAT on top of the list price.

I've bought quite a bit of stuff off there.
Yeah, most eBay & Amazon stuff is just resold from Ali
As long as you're not in a rush and prepared to forget returning an item, it's fine.
