That's my mates so not 100% sure but I'd say it's the Mini. I'm in same boat as you, not a fan of them aesthetically but cba with bulging pockets.

The roadcc review says it holds "a couple of tubes, a CO2 canister, tyre boot, quick link and multi-tool with chain tool"

No way that thing will hold all of that Laughing out loud

I can just about squeeze it into one of these but it’s about twice the size. Doesn’t move at all when on though.

Anyone ever replaced a press fit bottom bracket on a carbon frame?

yup, just make sure you have the right tools and its easy enough

cheap presses can be had off eBay/Amazon for £10-15
removal tools the same

Used to use 'gpsies' (sp?) but it appears that their site (and its editing functionality) has been taken over by 'alltrails' which is a shame.

I predominantly use Strava to create MTB/Trail Run routes but the editing is really hit 'n miss at present - also upload 'em to Google Maps in case I get completely lost.

Aren't the Rapha's just re-branded Castelli?

What about Speedsleev? Or Birzman Feex?

A friend has this Fizik 00, it’s very subtle and can carry a decent amount
