  • ^top left is the (home-made) extraction system for the rope heat-cutter.

  • Oh, and apologies, meant to post this update last week; delay in planned launch of new products (thanks Brexit) so is now this Tuesday. Hopefully.

  • Further info, wore mine on a lovely 50k coastal loop and was excellent. I think on the bike I'm glad it's a bit bigger now as it fits a bit nicer, doesn't ride up etc etc. πŸ‘

    It got a lot of love, and lots of stares. Good or bad? Haha.

  • @Chopsicle yeah a month or so is fine mate.

  • think that you on the Insta Stories @King_Saxlingham ? thanks for sharing, looking good! And cheers Scunny, nice one!

  • I missed the Daytripping ride out to Lewes at the start of the month; long weekend coming up, girlfriend going to a bottomless brunch thing on Saturday means I've got a free pass all day. Happy to do the 90k route, should really do the 160k one though. Anyone keen to join?

    Food at Beak brewery on Saturday looks very tempting...

  • @Chopsicle Got my shirt this morning, it's really great and happy with the fit - thanks for the quick turnaround!

  • Not sure if it's too late but would love a XS is possible.

  • Ace, no worries @tb55 I was out running a few errands this morning, good to meet @tramp too!

    for those additional orders @damitamit I have one XS blank left here, which I can get into work/dispatched next week, and @RhysC I've added your Large to the screenprint order - thanks for the continued support!

  • Picked mine up yesterday and have suitably shocked some colleagues on video calls today :) A public word of thanks to @Chopsicle for running this. Think it's the 3rd Raeburn custom garment in my possession now!

    If helpful to others on sizing: I'm 5'11", 67kgs, and about a 37" chest. I would normally wear a small but glad that I followed the advice and sized up to a medium. It's a slightly looser fit but smaller than a "conventional" medium.

  • @Chopsicle from the wapha thread on see-through bibs.

    For those that have, any idea how old they are, and are they fitted right?

    Mine are probs ~2yrs old, so it's not a huge gripe though a shame that the material let go before the pad. I have some rapha classic bibs which are in the reverse situ and are much older so that has (rightly or wrongly) become an expectation.

    Not sure if they're fitted right, I wear an xs, 28ish waist, 5'9" overall but with short legs - I had to size down to get the leg length sorted and they're still my longest bibs.

    Hope this is somewhat helpful!

  • Any long term reviews of the rain jacket 3.0 on here? I'm in the market for a new jacket after my rapha core has finally died.

  • Im still heartily recommending the long sleeve jersey and the insulated gilet. I’m using the gilet way more than I thought - say 8 degree commutes and that kind of thing.

    I need some new Sunday best bibs. At 6’ and 73kg should I be looking at medium or large? And is there a forum discount code still knocking around?

  • Saw this a few weeks ago and totally forgot. Probably way too late now, but worth a try as it's awesome!

  • hi @tyeness ...really sorry for the delay, been away from screens since Thurs - thanks for the feedback, yes, another option on the leg-length would be useful in the future. I'll DM you in a sec and sort something out, apologies again for the delay!

  • Where about are you @cookiemonster? They are in at Condor, Pinarello Regent St, another big stockist slightly west of Richmond Park (tba today/tomorrow) and you're more than welcome to drop into our studio in Deptford to try sizes.

    For mens sizing, I find it comparable with Rapha - I'm a 6'3 88kg and Large in Albion (as I was in Rapha) if that's any use.

    Edit to inc forum code; LFGSS10

  • and thanks for the interest ....I'm going to work through all the final orders today; the re-printing order has been placed with the screen printers, but there's a chance there's a L available from those changing sizing, or if not I will try to add yours on. Fingers crossed for you!

  • Thanks for the reply, fingers crossed!

  • I'm a similar height and weight to you, and I've got the medium, which fits well. I used the forum discount when I bought mine a couple of months ago. I'd wait though, as @Chopsicle said a new version was set to be released this week I think?

  • The ABR1 product page seems to be 404'd at the moment

  • Site/product page updates occurring, possibly live tonight, definitely tomorrow morning.

  • Season photos are up here, and all product pages are back on;
