  • Madison do a few very similar, nice quality and decent designs - range of lengths. Really rate them.

  • I was tardy putting them away.

  • What's the latest opinion on the bar bag - have the new straps fixed the slipping issues? Or shall I get a Restrap canister bag instead.

  • Been using mine for a few months, and not had any issues with slipping.

  • quite nice selection as well! cheers!

  • The white lightweight Brevet jersey, stripes are they green or grey?

  • Anyone used the classic bar tape , I liked the old Rapa -Cinelli tape

  • We’re sorry that your order has not yet arrived. We are still working hard to process your delivery and thank you for your continued patience.

    Due to some of the social distancing measures we’ve implemented at our distribution centre, and our ongoing commitment to making sure each order is handled as safely as possible, dispatches have taken longer than usual.

    We expect to ship your order on 07/05/2020 and you will receive your tracking number then. Please note that the tracking number may take up to 24 hours to become live.

    Again, thank you for bearing with us and we hope you enjoy riding in your kit soon.

    Even under the circumstances, 2 weeks to ship an in-stock jersey is pretty shoddy, no?

  • I believe our e-commerce distribution centre was showing a 17 day delivery for in stock items. Usually we guarantee 4. The impact of social distancing is massive, basically halving the throughput. Our solution is mechanical and the space filled with packing stations so it is not possible to simply move the desks further apart, we can only use every other station. This combined with a massive demands for our products due to their nature has probably has the same impact as the save promotion at Rapha.
    This is a new world for everyone and every day is a learning day.
    EDIT just checked and we are now saying up to 2 weeks

  • FYI The Albion XL bib fit on me at 6'3 ~80kg is very good in the leg, which is nice and long, but not so good on the straps. Quality seems good but haven’t ridden in them yet. The leg is maybe 5cm longer than my Gore bibs but the body is 5cm shorter. I can easily lengthen the straps, so I don’t mind trading strap length for leg length.

  • Restrap canister straps are faultless. Support your local bag maker (well, Yorkshire is more local than a factory in China)

  • Pics? I miss your long body.

  • Let no-one say polomance is dead.

  • any discount codes around?

    who makes rapha shoes, is it Giro?

  • They make their own shoes now

  • And very good they are

  • ah ok, cool.

    They look nice and not overpriced.

  • Does anyone own a Classic Rain Jacket II? I was wondering about sizing. I fit somewhere between Medium and Large for most other Rapha kit. Been wearing a large classic long sleeve jersey from about 7 years ago (still going strong even now)

  • Order both, send one back. Layer up as much as you might for try-on (pay close attention around the neck), and remember that rain jackets benefit from a little space to breathe.

  • Yeh I’ve got one I medium and found it to a be a pretty generous fit. For a comparison I’m a medium in the classic jersey and feel like the rain jacket has room enough to layer up underneath. Great jacket though!

  • Anyone have this in a large perhaps a medium and would like to move it on?

  • I have a pair of the rapha classic sunglasses - when replacing the lenses do they put out the front or the back of the glasses? The instructions appear to have gone from the Rapha website.

  • Brevet mitts- Any good? Doesn't look like they have much padding?

    I bought a pair, they’re going back. They just seam bulky.
