Pearl Izumi did a cargo base layer too, but I think that was a few years ago, I can't find any
Any idea why Black Sheep Clothing are so bloody expensive? They're on par with Assos, but don't seem to have the same level of technical/R&D prowess - only pretty designs.
I quite like some of their collections, but it's very hard justifying anything at their prices.
Any chance anyone owns any Atout kit, specifically the base layers? I'm looking for first hand opinions.
I have two of the older mack branded jerseys and really like them. The socks are really good too. I'd happily try a base layer if I order more socks at some stage, I'd imagine they're high quality as well.
Controversial in the stylish thread but I find a decent hip/bum bag solves this issue any you can carry heavier stuff more comfortably. As someone else has mentioned a loose top with stuff in pockets will likely flap about.
My Patagonia black hole with any T shirt, Swrve shorts and obviously ice white socks with navy blue double cadet stripes is my current favourite sports casual combo.
Or the old classic hip pouch that goes through the belt. It depends what else you're wearing when cycling round in a tshirt, if it's casual then a hip pouch or bum bag. If it's lycra then get a bar bag.
I just bought a fanny pack exactly so I have somewhere for jersey pocket stuff without wearing a jersey. Love it wearing casual shorts and T-shirt on the fast road bike.
pretty sure they're 'in' right now so you should be fine
Got a nice jersey not too races but definitely a jersey
This is an old one, £10 for 2 the same on eBay.
Just wondering if anyone has heard from Rotate yet?
I messaged him/them via the website chat last week and finally got a response, apparently he had been on holiday and would be sending stuff out shortly. I don't think thats really a valid excuse when it takes two minutes to put a banner on a website saying "orders will be shipped in 2 weeks" or even an automatic email but I went and picked up my shorts on Wednesday so I'm going to chalk this one up to bad organisation.
Ah cool, I’ll give him a couple of days to reply to my email then before I chase him again... glad you got it sorted in the end
After the rave reviews here, picked up some Swrve black cotton shorts. Build quality seems excellent.
Wish I'd got some of the slacks now that were in the sale.
Any recommendations for non bib but padded undershorts, pref with pockets? Rapha do em I know. Decath do them but bad reviews. Any others?
Undershorts with pockets? Where do the pockets go?
How can they see the photos included there and think the fit and finish of those shorts looks even decent? Awful.
Can anyone recommend a good pair of short-finger gloves / mitts? I have the dhb Aeron Speed Mitts and they've lasted surprisingly well, but inevitably the fabric has gone slack and I'd like to get something better constructed
I have hestra ones for the past several years. No complaints.
But they're not undershorts. Surely those pockets become useless if you wear something over the top?
Thanks, these look good
I remember I used to have some very comfy Hirzl gloves with a leather palm, and I'm kind of tempted by the Giro LX full leather ones
