  • Try the manchester cancer cycle charity shop . They have had donations in the past.

  • Yeah, the fabric on the Core shorts is fairly poor. From experience of owning and riding with others who own them they are often fairly see through from the start, and certainly end up that way before too long. Strictly turbo only shorts for me now. I think Rapha customer service generally give out a partial voucher if you complain.

    It’s strange that they haven’t sorted it because they’ve been the same since launch. The pad is good and everything else solid enough, so they’re only a denser fabric away from a really good value short.

  • A true friend would have enjoyed the view and kept quiet!


    I'm not a buyer but having tried various types of Rapha bibs it's Pro Team or no team for me now.

  • Anyone got a pro team aero jersey (short sleeves) in M or L for sale?

    Color is secondary (no need for black though)


  • I’ve just had an email apologising for the delay on a recent order. Problem is I have no idea if it’s a previous order of some time ago or my current order.
    The concern is my items have apparently arrived. Whilst my current orders tracking number still isn’t live from Monday

  • I’ve had the same email, but my recent order has been despatched and the tracking shows nothing more than that.

  • When did you place your order?

  • Last Tuesday, the 28th.

  • Sounds like an email to fix a problem that might cause a bigger problem

  • Anyone know how the PT Flyweight bibs compare to the PT2 bibs? I only have the "original" PT bibs to compare. (Which are the current training bibs right?)

    Anything above 21°C gives me a sweaty sack/arse in the original PT bibs, so am wondering if the PT2 bibs are somewhat lighter?

    Crashed my current PT flyweight bibs, need to get them repaired but need something thin to tide me over the 4 week lead-time. :(

  • Had the same email on something that was delivered a month ago (but it did take a few weeks to arrive)

  • I bought the jersey for the Etap a few of years ago (2017). The label says super light weight jersey. What is the equivalent material and cut in the current range? Pro-team is just too close fitting.

  • Classic Flyweight is the replacement for that jersey.

  • Thanks. Some nice bright colours in that range :(. May wait till ‘21 season.

  • It’s just arrived.

  • Hopefully mine will be coming today!

  • Fingers crossed. I got the email saying the parcel was with the courier after it had been delivered.

  • Has anybody given the bar bags a go - seem to be pretty well priced for what they are and one of the colour-ways was on sale for 30 which seems even more reasonable? just wondering about how much they can actually carry while stable and the build quality/finish.

  • I have the older one. I meant to send it back as it’s the 1st Gen with the bad straps, but it’s been a while so I may just start using again. The current one has better straps.

    Anyway the size is very good for wallet, couple bars, wind jacket, phone, keys, key sundry tools. I got a sandwich cut in half in there before.

    The construction is good and the material very good, the pink lining is nice to finding things. I wish it sat more forward than under because of my cables - canister bag would probably be nicer there. Never ever used the shoulder strap.

    Those canister bags I think are one big pocket? It’s nice to have a slim front pocket on the rapha bag, and the main pocket has a couple organiser pouches.

    30 quid is a bargain to be honest

  • Arrived!
    I ordered the aero and the training flight jerseys. They both look great. Only going to keep the aero as the arms on the training are a little too wide for my skinny arms.
    Sadly the first ride in it this morning it was covered by my gilet.

  • Order a few bits a week or so ago, heard nothing then for a mail yesterday saying would arrive next and then turns up today. No idea what's going on.

  • Been locked out of my account. What’s the best number/email to contact them on to get this sorted?

  • Use the chat on the website, that's what I did. They were nice about it
