Possibly the best rates I've seen on the web, apart from eBay bargain$- http://www.vosfietsen.nl/, apparently ran by a bunch of cowboys, so if you're thinking of buying. Take cash and don't go back.

If Engineered Garments did cycle gear…http://www.pedaled.com/

Lovely stuff but it's pricey and the branding looks Aldi/Halfords.

What utter shite.
Anyone seen that brand who are doing their very best to become the Rapha? It's very cringey. Can't remember the name

Torm.

Not cringey at all. Minimal branding and sportwool fabric at half the price. I like Rapha stuff, but they embarassed themselves when they got all pissy about this.

On that note though, I desperately need to up my winter gear game. Was freezing at points this morning!

That's not the brand I was on about. I saw a billboard in Birmingham for the one I'm referring to.
Rapha are pretentious with some of their stuff, but they get everything spot on.

I use a pair of Karrimor black winter tights I throw over my bibshorts. They do the trick, can't justify balling out on winter gear as I'm hardly on the bike when the weather gets grim.

Ashmei?

Went for a ride yesterday and had to walk 2 miles. Road was like an ice rink. Quite a funny sight seeing 30 odd cyclists carrying their bikes down the road.

Anyone got a decent bike laser? They put down laser lines either side of you so cars give you a wide berth. A lot of them look like they run low on battery quickly though Sad

Got a letter from Immediate saying that they have had to order more lights to meet the demand and will dispatch asap.

Looking for an 61cm+ single speed bike. £200 max. Charge Plug or something would be ideal, but open to a lot of things.. Checking lfgss, gumtree and ebay regularly but if anyone sees or knows of anything going then let me know Eye-wink
