No, why's that? (someone I know is and said the online queue was over an hour long)

The queue was on average 5-15 minutes if they followed the link provided in email. If they tried to go directly to site they would go in to a non-priority queue, which had longer wait times.

Wow, just seen the prices on eBay. Some jerseys still live at £450…What was retail on them?

Crazy.

Despite all the hype about the colab in general, definitely didn't see them being flogged for £500 a go. Wonder if there'll be a spate of instagram fashionistas wearing a sized-up jersey with off white nikes…

how does the Aero jersey fit compared to pro team stuff? bit tighter or similar size?

Rapha haven't had great success with their specials over the last few years, so I hear they were slightly cautious in how the approached the product side of this. i guess it's further evidence that the Rapha fan boys have loads of money to burn and Palace provide disgustingly large levels of hype…

Aero fits quite a bit tighter than Pro Team Training.

Intrigued to know who you heard this from, as it’s simply not true…

Any recommendations for winter/rain jackets? Have got a Perfetto which is fine for keeping wind out but have found it wanting when in the wet the past few weeks.

Better to go for a thermal/softshell and a packable waterproof?

If you have the Perfetto, maybe a packable rain jacket is a good addition. the Idro or Rapha's PRO-TEAM Shakedry jacket are worth a look. i have the latter and it's been great in the temperamental Dutch weather. it's the only rain jacket i've had that's actually kept me dry.

FWIW I think the Gabba is an incredible bit of kit, but find it better for the cold than wet. mine is very old though.

Watch this clip. Then go out and fill your boots on whatever trails you have around (try and emulate some of the moves if you wish!). Enjoy it mate Cool
