has anyone tried the cheap chinese/ebay compression boots?

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

Seeing lots of these setups between 60-200 USD. has anyone tried them? are they any good compared to some of the much more expensive Normatec systems?

I dont know if I would go that cheap... but I think Air Relax are just as good as my Normatec Pulse... the only bummer about my air relax is the time.. you have to restart it(press a button), while the normatec I can set the time .. longer if I want.

Just bought these

Suprisingly well made. Not as many zones as a normatec, but same effect, whether it actually aids recovery or just feels good. At 85 bucks, well spent.

85 bucks sounds great. My only concern is they don't go that far up your quads.. is that your experience?

Not as far as the normatec, but because the quad piece isn't attached to the lowers, it can be positioned wherever. What i usually do is 2 15 min sessions, and move it up for the second. Its a small price to pay for 85 bucks v 1300.

FWIW, my inseam is only 29 in...
