Wiggle & Bike24 do end of line Rapha stuff, normally XXL or XXS (think the bike24 bits are from when they were owned by Wiggle)

Rapha Lock, helmet, lights, Hexlox/Pitlock ?

they don't do a lock, the helmet is for RCC (£70 a year) subscribers only and OOS, and they do not do lights

normally have a sale mid August on their own site as well

Whoever recommended the Castelli/Rapha undersaddle (Swede and someone else?) - cheers. Picked the mini one up, and couldn't be happier. initially thought it'd be too small but able to fit a tube, co2 cannister and nozzle in and looks great. wish i could add my topeak multi tool, but happy to shove that into the back of a jersey pocket

Shout at Wiggle for the Rapha. I'm XXS (yes, really), and just bought 6 base layers for under £100.

yeah it's like Aladdin's cave in there, surprisingly roomy. I managed a tube, tyre levers, puncture kit and multitool in mine

Colour looks great. Couldn't you get Di2 for the price though?

You could probably get Di2 on a Canyon ultimate if you didn't mind waiting a million years for it to be delivered and wanted an older frame. Also on brands like Planet X/Ribble

Wouldn't stress, mechanical is fine. I paid around that and got ultegra mech

Nice bike Cool

Put off by Canyon's lack of 0% finance, and reports of bad customer service. Waiting times are pretty much a given at the minute so it seems.

Yeah the Canyon Ultimate CF SL 8.0 Di2 came to mind. I got the mechanical version and love it, but not looking forward to the day when something goes wrong
