Mostly though I am looking forward to consuming all the baguettes and cheese and red wine in the region for the whole of the next week after the ride!


#4585

All the old Ultegra Groupset going out of stock now on the Evans website. Said stock coming next week when I ordered. Got my order in just in time :relieved:


#4586

Niiice! And you don’t even have to buy a new saddle!


#4587

ik, r?

This is the 4th Charge Spoon in our house!

BEST SADDLE.


#4588

Obviously not according to @plasticmike (hi Mike)


#4589

pwhoar! :heart_eyes:


#4590

AWWW YIS!

It’ll be like £2000 won’t it? :anguished:

Edit: £500! Woo!


#4591

Talk to me about budget summer base layers.

Always gone Castelli, but just want to pick up a couple for a holiday then leave them with my brother. Cheapish, cheerful and functional please. It’s only gonna get sweaty, so I don’t need Rapha ProEvo Carbonite Wickmaster 3000.

Asked this question on twitter and got recommended some long sleeve things for £70. No.

Like this, but not awful (unless you lot say they’re actually awesome):


#4592

i dunno but decathers or dhb is definitely going to be the answer isn’t it


#4593

I’ve got a craft one. Was ~£20. Really happy with it, not got any experience with premium ones but more than happy with it. Keeps me nice and dry and dries off really quickly itself, too.


#4594

I just got two from Aldi, £7.99 each (obvs I got the ladies ones but here you go): https://www.aldi.co.uk/crane-mens'-base-layer-top/p/076839157209400

LOL.

(wore one on the Dun Run, was fine)

Quite like the look of those mesh ones you get from Morvelo / Rapha but they’re £££


#4595

So, so worth it though


#4596

Yeah, probably. I don’t mind slumming it when no one can see it :sweat_smile:

CRAFT! That’s it. That’s what my mate was in this morning. Sold. Where’d ya get it?

How are these for summer days?


#4597

Seemed fine (it was really warm when I left) - a bit confused about why it says “keep warm” or whatever on the blurb because it’s clearly for summer.

I have a couple of thin dhb ones and they’re also good.

You can get Craft stuff from Prendas usually.

Cheers Niknaks!

GROUPE GOBERT?

Love the blue/black one - sticking that in my basket. Expecting birthday gift vouchers :sweat_smile: :money_with_wings:


#4601

I saw it on both Wiggle and Prendas. Same price iirc. Went for the former hoping I’d get a free little bag of Haribo but I didn’t :slightly_frowning_face:


#4602

Aha, I’ll go Wiggle. If I look at Prendas I’ll order some funky looking socks that I’ll never wear.


#4603

and it must be in the big ring
