Forum Jersey on latest Cycle to Work newsletter:
I've used it in the UK a few times, the wicking effect is very noticeable compared to other jerseys, has a really strong cooling effect. However I can't wear it with my classic bibs as the combination of my big arse and quite a long back means I sometimes get a little gap between bibs and jersey. Not nice.
It does come with an extra block for the seatclamp which has rack mounts though. And hidden mounts at the dropout. I've used mine for commuting 150miles a week for a year and been very happy with it! Although i bought mine before the Defy went disc, which would also be an option if you wanted a more road orientated bike.
I was being sarca.... oh never mind...
Giant have now taken my bike to analyse the fork damage and in the meantime given me a Defy Advanced to play around on. Much better service than expected!
Just seen 2015 TCX SLR2 on sale for £849 in Giant's own shop in Twickenham. I love my 2014 one, although just had to drop it off due to a crack in the forks.
I'm going to take it into Giant tomorrow, they said their mechanics can inspect it and replace if necessary. Although going on all my previous dealings with that particular branch, I'm not filled with confidence. They'll probably blame it on my @mdcc_tester approved top-cap!
Am I going to die? (Hairline fracture in a composite disc fork)
Take it to the shop for an inspection?
I made one from the google maps version on the website:
"Dream big, ask what if, and if you can make it happen, if you believe something, anything is possible" Deep insight from Matt Hoffman. This is now my life mantra, seriously considering my first tattoo, probably on the inner bicep.
It does frustrate me that they felt the need to use a 6mm bolt for the saddle clamp, 5mm to adjust the length of the arms, and 4mm to set the width. Only gripe I've had!
