I've gone for the atmos. Seems a great price and hope it will light and ventilated enough that I don't mind wearing it so much.
Have started really resenting wearing a helmet but know I need to.

Just in case people are considering buying something, DAD20 gives you £20 off a £50 purchase at Evans, until the 20th I think. There's another for Cycle Surgery with the same amount when you spend £100 but I need to find it.

for 70£ you could find older model (different paint scheme, same design and materials as current models) prevails.

you ought to have grabbed an aeon if lighter weight and ventilation was your aim. rolling along a road, the aeon feels like a screen wrapped around your dome compared to the atmos.



probably the first of many crash videos from this criterium held last night -

The Aeon does look good but it is £50 more.
Atmos already seems a lot to spend for a casual rider.

Anyone been watching The Tour Series on itv4? Really tight courses through city centres in UK, some mad crashes on there, exciting to watch.

@timmbo
got a torm jersey through the other day, highly recommend them for a rapha alternative

shutt,colomba and twin six are all decent alternatives too
http://www.alwaysriding.co.uk/bodywear-146/cycling-jerseys-46/ has a good selection
hope that helps

Same here darko, got a white t7 last week, lovely. I have to carry my bike on my shoulder every day up and down the stairs though, and now there's chain/road grease on the back.

Gave it the fairy liquid and washing machine treatment, didn't shift any of it. Any ideas?
