Thinking about joining, doing velodromes and time trials sound pretty neat - but I prefer riding by myself.

I was involved a lot at mine, depends on where you are though really. but why not join anyway?

You're right. I'm going to give it a punt. Cheers.

Worth a try. Can imagine that if you prefer riding solo, it won't be easy. I imagine a uni cycling club to be full of assholes comparing stem sizes.

Yeah, that's what I fear aswell. But we'll see.

I did not, I sent it to Argos Cycles in Bristol. They replaced the dented top tube and resprayed it with decals I provided. They're first class, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.

Second DHB, the Aeron stuff is great. Also worth looking at Galibier, nice stuff at reasonable prices.

dhb Aeron jersey I bought I backed, material felt really flimsy and fit was poor. Spent a little bit more and got rapha, miles better.

Anyone know how Maap sizing compares to Rapha?
