    [barge] that one about Roy Halee, Simon & Garfunkel’s producer. More than just a fifth Beatle.

    based in AND ‘working on various projects’ is a red flag tho.

    Got a pic of the brake track on that 7700/Mavic rear?

    Also. What size is the CAAD?

    Cheers...

    Handy to know, thanks.

    Yeah, I wasn’t having a pop; I just read it as ‘not sure if this is the same item or not’.

    I’d say the fit on these doesn’t do any favours if you have a bit of flab going on. The hem is elasticated which I find a right pain in the arse (until years of washing and reshaping beat them into submission) they’re the polar opposite of a straight up-and-down Guernsey : )

    I reckon you’re overthinking it. Labour & Wait is like a value-added reseller: They don’t make anything - they ‘curate’ - if they had custom work from the original manufacturer you can bet they’d be screaming about it on their website : )

    (also, if you’re making £££s from selling ‘timeless classics’ you don’t bother to tweak anything do you? - except at the till).

    I recommend Yarmo for knitwear: not as cheap as they used to be but facksake ~50 notes for a 100% woollen sweater is still a good deal (“incorporates original Irish stitches” must be a technicality to allow them to outsource the work to indentured piece workers in sunken hulks and still claim it’s from mills in Eire, yes?).

    the sizing, kit, details check out but, even if you ignore that ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING has been sprayed that same colour (rims, tyres, cables, seatpost &c &c) the fact the Gumtree listing quotes the marque with no evidence of a logo, kind of pushes it towards ‘it’s the same bike’ (for me).
