    Whats the status with Tao's Ineos conract currently? Am I right in thinking he signed a two year deal in 2018?....... has he renewed with Ineos for next year as yet?

    Really hope his performance in this Giro will very deservedly make a huge difference in the kind of salary he can demand next year if he hasnt signed a contract already!!

    Similar aituation for Richie Porte after his podium at the Tour...... I'm pretty sure his Ineos contact for next year was agreed before that performance?

    I have very little knowledge of this kind of thing, but am intrigued to know if a rider that gets a huge and unexpected result like a GT podium (or hopefully win!) very soon after signing a new contract is able to renegotiate and demand a considerably higher salary?

    This is perfect for you!
    Sell some of those road bikes you say you don’t use anymore!

    Sick van. Fair price. Would buy In a heartbeat if this was 12 months in the future. GLWS!

    Cool paintjob....Good effort!

    Always great to see people having some fun and being a bit more creative with a DIY rattlecan project like this. Just jumping in and figuring it out as you go is the best way to learn what works and what doesnt in my opinion. All you need is a rough idea of what you want and open mind and you'll end up with something interesting, even if it's not exactly what you were aiming for.

    As long as you dont go into it expecting to achieve a super high quality finish, and just want to have a bit of fun and make your bike a bit more unique, you cant really go wrong. People often end up wasting a huge amount of time and effort trying to get a perfect finish, which just isnt possible with rattle cans!

    Dont get to concearned about the paint getting chipped and scratched though - paint needs to be protected by a decent 2k clear coat to have decent durability.... Which just isnt really possible with rattle cans (You can get 2K clear in a can, but its pretty shit) - So not being to fussed about the finish getting a bit scuffed up over time makes life a lot more enjoyable!

    Happy riding!

    Just an FYI for anyone planning on trying to snag any of the off bike Palace stuff tomorrow:

    I got some of the Palace/Rapha casual stuff the other day - The off bike pieces are all made by Palace, not Rapha, and it all seems to come up a bit small (hoodie in particular). I'm normally a small in Carhartt WIP stuff, tried a few on and went for medium with the Palace stuff! General consensus in the office was that all the tshirts/hoodies were deffo a bit on the small side.

    Might be worth sizing up to avoid dissapointment - I cant imagine you're going to be able to return and exchange for a bigger size with any of this stuff!!

    They have proof he's full of shit.
    I deleted my post as i probably went into too much detail considering there is a law suit pending.
