Tim would you model for Rapha if they offered you money? even if you knew they were just using you for your gritty street edge..?

i just noticed this - James i can assure you I have never had a fixed gear bike that properly fitted...! no idea where you got the thing about the cranks from though.. never changed 'em since building my bike and never entered a discussion about the aesthetics of crank lengths as far as I know..

Typical polo player advice. Rapha is for people who want to suffer, not people who want to have fun.

What kind of tea?

I don't like the rapha tops with black stripe on the arm, as they seem like a black arm band that mourners wear at a funeral.

In principle, yes. It's only that I'm actually driving my big rig down the M1 and I'm posting on my phone while eating a Pot Noodle blu-tacked to my steering wheel. But close enough.

I dont own any Rapha, though i dont doubt its good kit, mainly because in my part of West London the only people you see wearing it are definitely of the all the gear no idea type, and secondly because there is plenty of other stuff out there that does the same thing for a lot less.

Theonly reason i can see to buy it, is because you want to wear something with Rapha on it - i dont have a problem with that, but for me its the Polo Sport of cycling, and for that reason, i'm out
