    It definitely was!
    I was rolling on a pair of 40c tyres which made riding on tarmac quite laborious, but it was a good fun on bridle ways and single track.

    Went out for a quick spin to Kent earlier today.
    Had to take it easy as I haven’t been on a bike for over three weeks (normally I cycle 1.5- 2.5 hours every single day).
    The lanes were busy’ish (during late afternoon) with cyclists and walkers, but all were being considerate to each other, which was quite reassuring.
    Went up the Ide Hill and a few others in the area (Brasted), done some bridle ways, which were empty with an exception of a runner with two Labradors. We both spotted each from a distance, I moved away from the track and he genuinely thanked me for this.
    All in all it was a beautiful sunny and stress free ride.
    Stay safe and think positive!

    I would describe the fabric as between Gore Windstopper (non insulated/slightly insulated) and Windstopper Softshell (medium to heavy insulation) so has a water repelancy treatment but not waterproof (perfectly usable in a light rain). It is definitely an outer layer garment and designed to be a commuter or recreational jacket. I have no link to a spec/details, but recall seeing the garment in a hard copy of the Mavic Clothing Catalogue a couple of years ago.

    PS. Also pmed you.

    They are perfectly valid and factual reasons - not sure what would qualify as a 'great' reason...
    Campagnolo Record Carbon Brake Levers BL01-RECGC have gone out of production at some point during 2011. A couple of online retailers (everywhere is an exaggeration) had them listed at a reduced price but didn't have them in stock the most of the time - this was a long while ago. If you are looking for a used pair these are not for you. A replacement Record Carbon Brake Lever Blade assembly (EC-RE447 or EC-RE348) cost around £100 each, a pair of rubber hoods (EC-RE600) is around £15 and etc (BL-RE031, BL-RE032, EC-RE203, EC-RE124, EC-RE059, EC-RE030).

    Kind of talked myself into keeping them as spares for my Record Carbon 10s shifters - decided to keep them and removed it from the listing.
