    A mate of mine is booked in at the same place at one of their camping pods.

    I'll be there (assuming I qualify), but now only about an hour's drive away, so will come up on the morning.

    I've a set of core bibs back with them for repair currently that have a very similar issue. All my other bibs from rapha haven't had that issue, so I think it may be an occasional manufacturing defect.

    GoldenCheetah works and is free. Otherwise TrainingPeaks free edition, but as I recall you just can't schedule the workouts all that far out on the free version.

    This post didn't get the credit it deserved. I just wanted to commemorate and put in a potential nomination for the Lfgss hall of fame.

    Oh man, that's gutting! Sorry I can't help with recommendations of how to recover the file, but wanted to say that high number of laps shouldn't be the issue. I've everested using a Wahoo Bolt and did over 100 laps with no issue. What you've described is utterly bizarre. Given that all your sensors continued to record, it does sound like the gps chip in the wahoo may have turned off or malfunctioned in some way.

    Ha, I should have known my post would be divisive!

    For me, one of Rapha's main differentiators is that they will replace or repair your kit when needed. That's the reason I bought the shorts. To think that I then wouldn't make use of that guarantee when needed is an interesting perspective. I agree that 85 quid for 3 years of bib short is absolutely acceptable. However, when nothing else is wrong with the short other than the single see-through panel, I also think it's acceptable for me to make full use of their guarantee and ask for a repair or replacement.

    I wouldn't have asked for anything if the shorts were Castelli, for example. Equally, though, I've many cheaper pairs of bibs from other brands outlast these ones, so I don't agree with those saying that expecting that sort of life is unreasonable.

    Hmmm, I've been a victim of the core shorts going see through on one panel. They've offered me a 30 quid voucher, which I don't think is great, given that a replacement costs 85 quid, and they're only 3 years old. Is that par for the course for what others have received?

    Within 4 weeks is what they say. Often faster in my experience, but that was before COVID

    Are you and @hippy both doing boiling water from the kettle on the chain before you put it in the wax pot, or just straight into the wax pot off the bike?

    I may test out much shorter intervals before changing, as I've been getting some corrosion spots over the last 9 months waxed when replacing once it squeaks.

    Nice! 350km is a lot less than I'm getting from speedway, but it sounds like the wax is far cheaper.

    Are you changing chains because it starts squeaking, or just proactively?
