  • Got myself a Brevet jersey and long sleeve mid weight jersey in the sale to use the voucher that's been burning a hole in my pocket.

    At least I'll look despite going like a bag of washing at the moment.

  • I was in berlin, was planning to hit rapha store anyway and on the same day i've got an email about the sale.

    So I rushed there like damn, that's my chance, gimme these pro team bib shorts with white logo ah yeah.

    I'm about to pay and it's full price. Then I realised the discount is only for bibs with orange/grey/yellow logo but not white. Got out empty handed as I wasn't ready for impulse purchase for a full price.

    They ever do discount their gear in white logos or is it popular enough not to?

  • Tbh I think his stuff has gone downhill a bit recently but he has done some really nice things. E.g. my Mamnick/Instrmnt watch and stainless bracelet that I wear all the time and have had lots of compliments on. The down jacket is also pretty much my favourite piece of clothing (in winter).

  • Brevet jersey is a beaut. Roll on autumn.

  • The Raphé has recently got much shitter as you can no longer get a coffee past 4.30- anyone know if that’s permanent?

    If so seems a very “shit we’re going bust” sign- which seems odd as they’re now full of Walmart cash.

  • Probably not until a complete new release and they go to archive.

  • I'm pretty sure they have test saddles.

  • Brought one already, hopefully goimg to test it this week.

  • Hankering after a gilet for the winter, the Peugeot-inspired check is very tempting....

  • Used mine yesterday for just over 100 miles spread over two rides. It's difficult to compare it to other saddles as it's on a new build which still needs to have the saddle position tweaked, but at the moment I like it. It's very long. It's a bit like an Arione but with a round tail.

  • Seen as the Pro Team socks have been out of stock for ages now in the longer lengths, does anyone know any decent alternatives for a 13-15cm cuff simple sock?

  • DeFeet Airator tall. They're 5" which translates to just under 13cm.

  • What's going on with Rapha? never seen them push a sale so hard and it's got too much in it? mega stock change? Walmart related stuff going on?

  • It was the same last year.

  • Are we in for an "Extra 10%" off sale this weekend or should I just buy the ill-fitting classic 2 gilet

  • I could say the same about sis

  • They drive me bonkers, feel like a futures trader when making a purchase!

  • With some extra % off I’ll be in for a few bits.

  • Current PT Aero Jersey worth a dabble?

  • Went to buy the Leather essentials case. Added two to the basket. Dithered about how to get the amount up to the £100 free delivery. Then out of stock. Snooze = lose. :-(

  • "FREESHIP" this weekend

  • Midweight long sleeve was perfect today at about 8 degrees Celsius with a gilet on top.

    Since I put on a stone and lost loads of fitness, I’m right at home in Rapha’s target market.

    Life is good.

  • I bought one at £22.50 2 weeks ago so nabbed another at £18 with free delivery to return my original and get £4.50 back :D
