    Rapha got back to me on my repair request after I tore a hole in a (very old, I think 2015) pair of PT bibs. Said they couldn't repair them, but gave me a £80 voucher - result!

    That isn't a bad shout. It's a hole about the size of a pog, quite a neat circular one with a little flap. Depends how much it'll cost to send them off to Waffa. I'll see what they come back with.

    Thanks, stupidly didn't even think to check online. Thought I'd got them from a shop. Submitted that request. They were bought in 2016 so will be impressed if that gets processed. Testament to the quality of the older Rapha stuff that they are still rideable after 4 years and many hours of abuse. Not sure my current ones will last that long.

    Like a dick, I slipped on some ice over Christmas and tore a hole in my (ancient) PT shorts. They were on the way out anyway, but does anyone know if there is an expiration on the repair service? They were bought in 2016. They would still be good for use on the turbo if so.

    Interesting to hear some opinions on this, as I'm definitely in the same boat.

    It occurred to me that its actually more important now that day/sunlight is in such short supply, to try and get outside. Otherwise I can very easily spend days and days holed up inside, never seeing the light of day!

    I have tried to make it a habit to get out early to meet a mate for casual spin, followed by coffee. The coffee at the end of it makes it very slightly easier to get up/out in the dark and cold! I think having the commitment of knowing somebody is waiting for you to meet is a good way of actually getting it done. Once you're out, its very rarely regretted - just getting out that is tough.

    I definitely echo people's views on riding around London though - I have moved a bit further out in the last year but finding it very difficult to get out anywhere other than RP in the mornings, due to the CRAZY amount of traffic at the moment. Even the park is just disgustingly choc-full of traffic. Any ideas for routes doable in a morning around Surbiton way are welcomed..

    Hello, as above. Taken off a new Supersix Evo as they are too wide for me. As new condition, not sure on price - would take £15 if you can collect from Surbiton. Cheers
