    I find their shorts fit like other brands I’ve got. They’re nice and stretchy and also good leg length (long). The jersey feels a bit more snug than others and doesn’t stretch as well, although I still wear the same size as I do in Rapha, La Passione etc.

    I have the Abus Stormchaser that fits my fairly narrow head, £90 on Sigma Sports at the moment and nice and light

    No blue was last year, it’s olive green this year

    I think that’s the old model, and my head is way too big for a small!

    I like the look of the new Scott Centric Plus helmet, well vented, MIPS, 220g, supposedly aero and £150 which is starting to look reasonable these days for a ‘pro level’ helmet. I don’t think it’s widely available yet though. It’s not that attractive but not horrendous IMO.

    I tested out the new La Passione Prestige bib tights this morning and they were lovely, if a bit pricey. Definitely stylish!

    Maybe not stylish but the DHB Aeron tights are decent for the price, and you can get 25% off if you join the Strava challenge.

    I have the gilet in the same burnt yellow colour and I’d say it was closer to orange. They make nice kit though, big fan of the jersey and shorts they released this summer.

    I’ve got that tshirt even though my brother in law planned the route badly and we only went down it. I’d say go for it!

    I ordered some winter Belgian Boys Club kit from there a while back. It took about 2 weeks to come and I had to chase a couple of times before I got it. I ordered two sizes in the jacket and tights but neither fit so I returned it all, then I got a bit of a snotty email from the guy saying he’d ordered it especially from Belgium and now he’d incur the cost of sending it back. I do think it’s cool that they sell a lot of brands you can’t get elsewhere, I’d just assumed they already held the stock.
