    I'm just picking up a few comments from a few pages back - re: Bicester.
    The clubhouse looks great, and whilst compact - its well stocked with archive items on half of the shop floor, whilst the coffee bar takes up the rest. Bikes can be stored at the rear of the shop, in an outside area that is covered - with a couple of TV screens.
    There are a couple of Tuesday and Sunday morning rides scheduled to take place from the Clubhouse each week, with plenty of decent routes on its doorstep (Chilterns or the Cotswolds). The only downside is that bikes can't be ridden anywhere within 'The Village', so bikes need to be walked into the store.

    The Core stuff is excellent. I use it for commuting in and i love this seasons tights. I've gone with the tights without a pad, simply to have a double layer when the temps drop, but i really like the chamois in this range - so tights with the pad will be comfy i'm sure.
    The Core stuff had some issues with the leg grippers on the bibshorts when they were first launched, but thats well and truly sorted now. I highly recommend it.

    Its not the wrong thing if you want a waterproof Pro Team fit. The race cape is awesome. Its a definite on the bike fit, which will look daft if you are wanting something to go over office wear....

    The Classic Winter jacket has been a favourite of mine for autumn and into winter rides. Its a bit too mild for it right now, but in a few weeks i'll dig it out.

    I have a Miche Primato crankset with BB, or a Sugino75 with BB. The Miche comes with a 49t chainring, but the Sugino has a Zen Chainring on it. I am stripping the Sugino from the Dolan this weekend. Its in very good condition.
    The Miche has not been used.

    How much do you want to spend?

    Go small. It might feel weird off the bike, but so right when riding.
