  • no queue. nothing I wanted :(
    spotted dan though.

  • btw, orlebar brown sale around the corner if you're into "classy" beach shorts

  • TBF I would love some of their 'Bulldog' shorts but I suspect even in the sale they're beyond me.

  • No queue when I left 20 minutes ago. Lots of gloves/mitts/hats along with club jerseys and country jerseys and trousers. Fair number of merino tops. Baselayers mostly gone.

    ^ This, and a nice track jumper.

    If I picked up anything that doesn't fit I'll pop them on here at cost; mostly small and xs stuff.

    That's a nice offer.

    I wouldn't say no to some L/XL mitts to replace my frayed old decathlon slips but east london + schedule doesn't fit this time.

    £45. Not too bad.

  • Sorry Kris I couldn't get you a jacket. Wanted one myself.

  • I spoke to guys inside and they said that there's no jackets. And even if there are they'll be only a couple of them and either tiny or very very big.

  • Anyone want to swap some large arm warmers for some mediums?

  • you have larges and you want mediums?

  • I have mediums... they are damn tight, but I think they're supposed to be like that. maybe. I had some that came with women's medium jersey last year and I think they were smaller maybe. I can't really imagine I have 'large' arms. Sorry, waffling...

    Very pleased with the women's club jersey, short sleeved, half-zip, mesh sides. Got the blue.

  • I panicked about Rapha being designed for whippets and got the women's shorts in a large which are far too big in the, er, front crotch area. I hope they look/feel less ridiculous on a bike than off. I am going back to boycotting Rapha.

  • I wear mediums in the shorts. I actually find it's the opposite - I'm a high street Large, but a Rapha Medium... you might be able to persuade someone on the door to do you a quick swop if you go back? there were loads of shorts... or last year there was no queue at all later in the day.

  • hmm... I really should see if I can swap but I am so lazy. I will try them out tomorrow, by which time it will be too late to do anything about it and I can spend the rest of the month whinging about having spent my monthly food allowance on clothes which don't fit. good to see you briefly earlier by the way!

  • you have larges and you want mediums?

    Yes, you want swaps?

    Ah so it was you - looked up from't purchasing at till and spotted you, put my pin in, looked bck up and you'd gone

    just tried them on again, and no, I don't think the Ls would work. sorry. there were quite a few white Ms though...

    Ah so it was you - looked up from't purchasing at till and spotted you, put my pin in, looked bck up and you'd gone

    oh, hello anyway!

  • Budgeted for £100 and spent £90 = £215 'saved' if I'd bought the 4 items 'properly'.Arrived 9:40 and got in at 11:30 - I haven't queued that long four years.

    Was it worth it ?

  • Arrived at 10, left when I saw the queue...Came back at 2, queued for about 10mins... 20mins later people were walking straight in off the street, no queue...

  • so what did you do to empty the place - was it an old man fart?

  • Any reports from todays queue? I'm planning to pop in later on (if there's any stock left)

  • I'm in the queue now. It is short but still taking a while to get in. Hopefully they have restocked this morning. Will try and update on here

  • If they haven't it will be a sea of hats and arm warmers.

  • what's the bike parking situation like?

  • Plenty of country jersey in all sizes, mixed up gloves. All the PS shit stuff and hats. No queue now. An can lock bikes up round the corner
