Check them out and then see who they follow. There are a few ‘kit doping’ accounts that post up new stuff too.

After posting about bidons a page back, I just ended up ordering some from MashSF…..cost way too much but had to be done.

Yeah, I'm looking for smaller companies making cool shit. Not anything sold on MrP, Sigma, etc. Don't understand the hype around PNS, Void, MAAP…90% of their stuff looks over-logoed (THEY LOVE BLOCK CAPITALS) and/or boring as fuck.

Romance is cool, as is Albion. Older Attaquer stuff was nice

I’ve only got a quilted gilet and quality is great. Assume the rest is the same.

the branding easily identifies you as someone who loves hip cycling brands and will definitely score you cool points with other cyclists Cool

I dislike everything mentioned so far. Why doesn't anybody do something do something tasteful and understated like the old Rapha core bits. Those were great.


If anyone has one of those s/s jerseys in a small in good condition that they want to shift, hit me up .
