    Didn't know you could get the AC-1 forks separately. Pretty clean.

    Was chatting with a friend last night & he said a colleague had managed to get a Rapha x Palace cap for himself, but couldn't resist seeing how much people would buy them for on StockX. Ended up selling it for more than a hundred quid's profit, crazy.

    @darlojim, your LOOK is a candidate for this.

    Little dredge, but this happened to me last weekend on a bike ride, got it back in the post today. People can be great!

    For that price, definitely worth a punt!

    Never ridden tubeless so can't really comment on that option. My general routine for a few years now has to buy Vittoria Corsa G+ at the beginning of summer & then ride them into winter for as long as they survive. Then fit whatever spare tyres I have lying around to get through the season. Generally ride more fixed gear/off road in winter anyway. I've always found the G+ tyres to have exceptional puncture protection so they run longer than you'd think, friends rate the Rubinos too.

    Sorry, not super conclusive. I preferred the Vittoria Corsa G+ over the Veloflex Masters for speed & puncture resistance but YMMV of course.

    I rode older versions a few years ago & they were great summer tyres but got puncture prone relatively quickly in the grittier months. Did somehow manage to tour Scotland on a set without a flat before they went though. I hear the newer versions are better for puncture protection.
