  • was thinking of this one

  • lola fan page

  • no wait, I'm trying to remember where the cycling dress I've got is from...

  • oh yeah, here: http://www.maartjehoogland.nl/mijn-ontwe­rpen/vals-plat/
    I've got the "Casual rondemiss" in grey, it's lovely, but was a bit of a faff to obtain (I paypalled a friend with a dutch bank account).

  • I like the 'Lola' black jersey. I'd go for something like that, in different colours too.

  • For the ladies struggling to get good fit simultaneously on thigh and waist, I recommend tailoring. You can either do it the real way, having someone remove the waistband and pinch in from the side seams, or just having two darts done at the back will do the same thing more cheaply. I've had to do that for a few of my trousers.

  • JAY TO THE LOO!!!

    That is actually a v good idea! And darts are super easy to add to clothes...fanks!

  • I stumbled upon a lovely LBS in San Diego which actually had a larger women's selection than mens. (Granted, it had a small selection for both), but chatting with the owners, providing a better selection for women seems like it was something they were quite passionate about. http://www.mjscyclery.com/

    So I picked up a part of crop trousers from them, from a company called Zoic. They are similar in style to the Swre 3/4 length trousers, but in a more lightweight fabric. There are some clever touches, such as adjustable tabs for fitting the waist, and expandable bottoms (for those of us who have giant calves). Unfortunately I seemed to fall somewhere between small and medium, so I went for the medium, and a little bit of trouble with them slipping down when I wear padded shorts underneath, but they seem to stay in place when I'm just wearing them on their own. Overall, I'm quite happy with them.

  • Bad woman. You'll have to feed me for the week commencing 26 May now :-).

  • Always fancied Chrome's Storm Pasha and a couple of weeks back my spring jacket gave up on me. So I was super excited when I found out that very pasha was on sale. (still is !)
    I had no idea about what size to order, did their size test 3 times with pumped-up measurements, ended up buying the small one.
    I'm 5.4 with a normal kind of body volume, but my hips are not massively wide.
    It fits perfectly, with or without big hoodie under it.
    I've been riding in it for a couple of weeks and I'm very pleased. I get super hot all the time, but the armpit zips and the both-ways front zip are great to regulate temperature. Its waterproofness is amazing.
    And I find it quite cute too, the cut is feminine and nice.
    I would have probably never payed £175, but so far I really don't regret the £87.49

  • Just tried out a new pair of Pearl Izumi Women's Elite IN-R-cool cycle bibs. Hubby got them a few weeks ago for me from Sportpursuit.com as they were having one of their flash sales.
    I love them. First pair of bibs, but not my first pair of Pearl's. Massively comfortable and they have that special drop tail to make peeing much more manageable.
    Their sizing is a bit off though. I come up as a large in Pearl shorts, probably because of my stupidly massive thighs, and I'm somewhere between a 10 and a 12 usually.

  • @ Ecunard - It looks great. If I hadn't already shelled out for U34 jacket and hoody earlier in the year I would have been strongly tempted.

    I would like to get a sleeveless baselayer, but with shipping cost of £6 basically negating the £10 saving, I'm thinking twice.

    Would anyone be interested in doing a shared order and distributing to save on shipping costs?

  • ^I managed to convince my work colleague that the on sale wind jacket was a fab deal. score

  • :-). Well done!

    I was so taken with this review that I ordered one immediately! My spring waterproof gave up a few weeks ago and I couldn't find a replacement.
    I ordered the small as I'm a size 8 on top. It's a bit big round the bust and a bit too snug on the hips (and the sleeves are too short) so I'm going to exchange for a medium. Chrome charge £4.95 for returns so is there anyone who wants a small, could order a medium then we do a swap?? Or who just wants to buy the small for £87 and I'll order a totally separate medium?

  • Hi all,

    I posted this on another thread on Monday, but thought i'd add it here too. We launched the brand with a small range in December 2013 - it's all designed (by female cyclists) and made in London.

    "Hi all, apologies for not having updated this more recently. I just wanted to thank you all for your feedback and input on this venture. I am really excited to have recently launched the site (www.velocitycyclewear.cc). I have made a discount code to say thank you to you all - use the code LFGSS for a 10% discount valid until the end of May.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions/feedback.

    Many thanks, Carolyn"

  • Katie, I might be up for a swap/purchase but will probably need to try it on before I risk £87 on it. The review does look really good and I'm interested in a lighter waterproof with vents for touring.

    Oh noes ! I'm so sorry. Hope you find someone for a swap :-(

  • Cheers!
    Seraphinx of course you're welcome to try, I can try to bring it to SEs next week if you want?

  • Yeah sounds excellent, if you don't mind and it's not too far out of your way? :)

  • Hi ladies, have any of you got any experience with Howies bib shorts? My better half is considering them - she gets on well with her rapha shorts, but less so with her dhb shorts and needs another pair for commuting/occasional long rides that won't cost the earth.

  • I have some of the Howies ones & have been super happy with them. They have been super comfy on short rides, all day rides & on the track (where my more expensive Castelli shorts are super painful after half an hour, I won't go into detail). I like the lack of gripper around the leg, feel of the fabric, lack of branding (yeah, I know there is the small blue howies logo but its subtle compared to most brands) & they are comfortable.

    Although they are now relegated to second choice bibs after my Giordana ones which I prefer the race/compression fit for my more competitive riding.

  • I also have howies bib shorts find the s/m a little big but they are quite comfortable, weirdly my other half as s/m men's and can fit into mine no problem, as the only difference seems to be the pad.@katie-koo did you get stung on the postage or vat for the chrome jacket?
    Plus 1 for the http://www.velocitycyclewear.cc/ shorts they are great, nice bright colour too :-)
