    Entry total apparently going up to 35k next year. That's a lot of people.

    Any strongly held views on the merits of the wind jacket vs the rain jacket?

    I am tempted to think the wind jacket is the one to go for. It won't keep the rain off but presumably in all but close to freezing conditions it will keep me warm albeit wet. In truly awful cold and wet weather where the rqin jacket would be a better option there is little prospect of me actually riding for a sustained period. I am not paid to do ride after all!

    Make sense or am I missing something?

    Basically the same problem fabs has been having in the early classics for the last few years, non?

    He's too good. Solution, start taking performance retarding drugs?

    Recently had my frame done in Candy Blue (translucent lacquer over silver base) by RPA in Bristol. Hard to show in photos but it looks amazing in the sunlight.

    I know I said we should move on from the whole Wiggins/Froome conundrum, but this is a good piece by Joe Lindsey; http://www.bicycling.com/tour-de-france/expert-analysis/skys-biggest-mistake

    Well judging by Wiggins' instagram we can expect a series of threads in current projects.

    Hearing Brailsford and Thomas speaking afterwards - a striking lack of concern that Froome is out. Both described it as a good day!

    Brailsford hoping he can fool all the people, all the time?

    Some bits arrived in the post, built this; ![](https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/t1.0-9/10492553_10154284861460048_930443905200387923_n.jpg) Loving the raw finish.

    Excellent.

    The ft is profiling sneakerheads. Surely it's a sign the end of days is nigh

    Fox - I have just been reading your ss frames with bottle bosses thread and found my way here. Looks like an excellent solution. Bravo.

    It has certainly given me food for thought, although the pearson website photos of the current range leave a lot to be desired. Take your photos outside in good light, not on your crappy cameraphone in a dingy shop! shakes fist
