    We had a support van taking our bags 😅

    Can I suggest Apex Customs? They did a really fantastic job on our jerseys for LEJOG (I did the design in this case but they do offer design work as standard I think). Good flat price, no minimums (which was a main factor) and quick delivery from their own factory in Asia.

    Which resort? We’re off to Trysil end of March for the first time

    That’s the benefit of the speakers not being in your ears imo. I don’t always ski with music but sometimes it really accentuates the feeling.

    And if you’re going to get hit from behind, there’s not much you can do about it anyway, other than just ski faster!

    I really like Smith helmets and goggles. They fit really well together and are designed to prevent any gap between helmet and goggles which both looks better and keeps you warmer.

    Also depending on the helmet model, but you can get headphone inserts for the helmet ear pads do you can listen to music without having anything in your ears.

    I have the Holt helmet which is cheap but you can get others for under 100 with mips if you shop around.

    No need, that’s quality, love the tight colour scheme

    Top quality! There isn’t a frame those EEs would look better on

    Yes you’re definitely right about the stem, it was just the one I had on me. She actually doesn’t know about this yet so there’s been no fitting done (nor any piano accompaniment!) so ultimately it’s going to look a bit less race-y.

    Spent a lovely afternoon putting a few bits on a new c40 for my gf. Just can’t get enough of these frames and I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out so far. Seatpost is from my other bike.

    The small wrinkle is she has very little interest in cycling long distances for pleasure. I’m somewhat optimistically hoping that switching from a chunky alu Pinnacle to some svelte Italian carbon will make the difference but if not, at least I had fun putting it together…
