    They’re Gore short tights+ C3 . I imagine the bibs have the same pad though.

    Wiggle didn’t exactly apologise but gave me a free returns label 🙄.

    Re-ordered directly from GORE.

    I often get the piss taken out of me at work for being a full kit wanker.

    I do a 30km round trip 5 days a week, which takes about 35 mins depending on traffic. It does sound a big mad to spend 10 mins either side of that getting changed. But if I was going to do a 5-10km run - I’m not going to do it in my shirt and trousers am I?

    My kit is:

    3x short tights
    3x jerseys (zip off long sleeves)
    2x merino thermal for winter
    1x gore waterproof jacket / jersey for very wet
    2x sets of leg warmers

    I could ride in civilian clothes but then it would be super sweaty and gross and generally just uncomfortable, I’d still have to change out of whatever I rode in when I have a flannel wash anyway (no luxury showers).

    Wearing cycling gear is just so much more comfortable and practical. Especially in the rain.

    Friendly guy on a Mash Parallax in New Cross - sorry I’m socially awkward and terrible at small talk.

    Longtime listener first time caller.

    Going up Loampit Hill in Lewisham, ped runs across the road when the lights on green - missed him by a hair! Then 50 meters further up the hill - On coming Van driver starts to turn off totally misjudging my speed and ends up stopping half way across the lane - then 50 meters further on a Merc driver does the same but actually makes the right turn.

    I must remember not to wear my invisibility cloak when riding!

    Everything after that was fine except for a slipping Thomson seatpost that I can’t seem to fix 😞🤷🏻♂️

    Looking for something to get me around town that I can lock up and not worry about.

    Must be a full build, size 54/56

    Approx £200 budget, maybe a little more for something spot on.

    Happy to collect in London or pay shipping.
