    Looks like Specialized have two jackets with Polartec Alpha for women - one for road, one for trail. The road one is only available in black. Cafe du Cycliste have a few insulated cycling jackets for women but don't say what the insulation is.

    I do: https://my.laka.co/F4GJ4

    I haven't had to claim but like how easy it is to add / remove bikes and turn the policy on and off.

    Have had similar on a 12 speed cassette, and it was what Eseman said. The smallest sprocket barely engages with the splines on the free hub so it's really easy to knock it out of place as you tighten the lock ring.

    Edwardes in Camberwell might be worth looking at. Front of house had every last inch of wall and ceiling space displaying something when I last went, no idea what the workshop looks like though.

    I wondered the same about why the men's trail shorts have 4 pockets and some waist adjustment, and the women's have 2 pockets and a wide elastic at the waist with no adjustment.

    But I guess you can ask how many female riders have entered and the possible stress to all of their families of reading this. I'd delete the thread.

    This.

    Totally baffled why you'd post that e-mail on the world's largest cycling forum.

    RIP rider.

    That’s an improvement on Rochelle Gilmore’s commentary.

    Has it been suggested to get in touch with Jasmin Muller? She has the excellently titled blog post “flap mash”, and has really been through it all!

    I doubt it is any worse than other vaccines, I've had no cause to get any other vaccines as an adult to notice any side effects. The issue is the medical gender gap - that very, very few studies record menstural cycle disturbances even though it's a key metric of health in people who menstruate. That needs to change.

    Had 2nd Pfizer jab on Monday morning. Felt fine until about 9pm when I was suddenly really tired, started feeling achey and developed a splitting headache. Woke up the next day with a splitting headache, really achey all over and not much appetite (very unusual for me). Paracetamol dealt with the headache and muscle aches but felt really groggy and low energy. A walk to the park and back had me needing an afternoon nap! Felt much better by the time i needed to go to sleep when I was of course wide awake from napping 😂 Men may want to cover their eyes for the next bit, but have slight menstrual cycle disturbance today of bleeding between cycles which I have never had before, so seems likely it’s connected. Worth mentioning for any other women reading (jab received in week 2 of cycle). Dr Jen Gunter has written a few pieces about the relationship between vaccines (in general) and the menstrual cycle. Largely poorly studied (usual excuses, too hard because women have different hormone levels across their cycle) but essentially disturbances are normal post vaccine.
