Come to Norths, climb the hill. Smile after, if not during.

    Still thrown by the new site, not convinced.

    However watched the 'story' last night:

    Rapha only sells through rapha.

    Get an email from sportpursuit this am with a rapha sale!

    Thanks to the posts on this forum passed on the neoprene gloves...

    PDM, thanks, and your disseratation will be read by your college/university and them alone?

    If so - best to put 'thanks for your feedback, your name, course, institution' as the results page after you people have completed it, rather than 'Rapha Racing Ltd' which implies it is for Wapha.

    Yes, what course requires you to write a dissertation about private equity type buyouts? - You should state your subject matter.

    So a few years later, saw that 'Creative' is now owned by 'Absolutely'. Is this is a good thing?

    Pifko beat me to it, there is a new Lidl at W12 (Shepherds Bush roundabout), (i.e not Westfield, but across the road) with this stuff

    Lots of saddles, pumps, stands and lights there last night. I didn't see any helmets but I could have easily have missed them.

    There's also 250g Ritter Sport chocolate bars for £1.89. This is the real deal

    What MattyC said, tape around the contact points with the cage.

    Lift your bike up (by front and rear fork) and shake it a lot up and down. See if the bottles jump, or if anything else falls off

    Recommend you do this with closed but nearly empty bottles and outside...

    Your wrists really take a battering. Mine hurt for about 6 weeks. I had double bar tape, and a lovely steel bike that absorbed quite a lot.

    I really would recommend a light bandage with electrical tape reasonably tight over the top
