    Mirra kits already out of stock in most sizes and no email received despite being signed up on the newsletter. Fucksticks.

    VAT already added no? No extra to pay within EU.

    Just got to Verbier in preparation for the winter. Minimal snow about, but still 2 weeks until official opening. If anyone heads out this way over the season and fancies meeting up for a beer, gimme a shout!

    Anyone had any experience with the mons royale ski/snow stuff?

    Not wearing it, but seen it at a few tradeshows recently. Seems quite heavy but really good quality. The guy promoting said that the owner of the business used to be sponsored by icebreaker, but got bored of the design so started his own brand.

    When I opened mine, the bottom cage had completely disintegrated (I probably left it a bit long before changing it!) Loose balls and a fuck-ton of lube got me through the last 6 months of ownership, just a pain to set-up!

    Evans might give you a new set of caged bearing, but I would be very surprised if they go anywhere near those cups. The specialized franchise I spoke to didn't even acknowledge they existed.

    Probably a Specialized proprietary "hiddenset" or whatever they decided to call it that year. My Sirrus had a similar thing, where the cups were hidden and almost impossible to remove. The cages are different sizes top and bottom, I'd remove them both and replace with loose balls, will feel much better.

    Actually, its probably just the park closing earlier.

    Its all the way from Kingston up through Petersham as well. I think there may be some stuff going on in Richmond forcing cars a different way round? That seems a bit far away from where I've noticed though.
