    @exteroceptive I have a pro team training jersey, they honestly seem quite generous for pro kit size than other brands. I’m 75kg, 180cm, a small, kits great but obvs you need to be happy with a close fit.

    Rapha EF kit drop finally. Are we a yay or a ney future classic? Ie. Do I buy 3, keep one for myself and sell the other two as an investment?

    That’s what I assumed, but I got spooked by them asking!

    I'm getting a set of LB wheels for my 2021 Supersix Evo AXS Force. Do I need to request the Asymmetric Integration 6mm offset or will it be happy with normal road spacing?

    Any good stylish brands to check out that offer genuinely good womens kit? Looking for something for my other half that’s nicer than the usual ‘pink it and shrink it’ brands?

    You need to be a bit careful with what lube you spray into Veloce shifter bodies, in Veloces Campag swapped traditional metal ratchets for plastic vinyl which are weak and are now known to fail. I had a set fail. Progress eh?

    Apparently avoid spraying things like WD40 in there as it degrades the plastic...

    This failure is the stuff of nightmares for sure. There's sound reasoning behind a big bung, but it's not everything. The standard Cannondale carbon steerer bung on my 2021 supersix is small, maybe 20mm of internal reinforcement - I don't think Cannondale would be taking chances.

    The rust and dirt inside the tube here is super dodgy. Has the aluminum bug and carbon tube been compromised after repeated saturations of sweat from use on a turbo trainer?

    The guy also has a ridiculous amount of spacers above the stem, but tbh, it looks like the bung was still at the right depth to reinforce?

    Commuter bibs? Suit trousers under 5k commute. Ordinary jeans/chinos/trousers up to 15k each way. Rapha classic bibs/Morvelo/Dhb for anything above that.

    100%. For #ukgravel shitfromabutt rides 33mm CX tyres are the best.

    The sooner we stop dreaming of Instagram rubbish about big gravel tyres and wide dusty, endless mid-west US gravel roads the better. They don’t exist here.

    Oooof. Nice bike. Whoever snaps this up needs to move the shifters down to a normal level.

    I'm pretty sure Condor have stock of silver Centaur ATM, but I'd be quick.
