You are saving, you just saved £94
Are the super cheap shimano jerseys actually decent then?
24 miles on my new wheels. A few achievements, but nothing earth shattering. They feel good, spin up nicely, and they feel a bit lighter holding them at speed.
I'm trusting the brand, and it's only £15.
Well, my Shimano shoes died extremely quickly (though to be fair I've put 5.5k miles through them since the end of January).
As you say, it's only £15. I'll probably pick up some tomorrow. Looking at them they're cold weather wear but not waterproof. Is that right?
Cheap and waterproof does usually enter the same sentence when it comes to jerseys. The Castelli Gabba is probably the best waterproof jersey and that is £100+
Yeah..I'd expect that. These don't look like they even make the pretence of being waterproof (which actually gives me more hope for them being good at the thing they're meant to do - be warm in dry but cold conditions). Or have I missed something?
This should give you an idea of the quality
Can anyone help identify the bolt size that holds the rear derailleur hanger to the frame?
That sounds about right, good cycling jersey material is designed to quickly wick away sweat without actually absorbing it. To be honest it looks like you could probably wear them quite comfortably in summer too, but i just wanted something with a bit more wind protection than my black short sleeved B'twin jersey since i feel it more on my arms. I got it in blue as well for slightly better night riding safety.
I'm not sure that will help .
Nonsense platypus. Look at this scientific comparison of a black top in the dark to a blue one:
That could save your life!
it has been scientifically proved that there's a higher chance of surviving if you wear blue.
Back of the net!
Can't view youtube, and I'm leaving work at 3pm to....spend ten days in the Pyrenees .
Will try too remember watching that .
So annoyed! 20:12 seconds around RP. So close to the sub 20 minute mark. Second lap I had to dawdle as my friend is very new to cycling, had to wait for him constantly.
Please with my progress on Anerley Hill though, that thing is a bugger.
Sounds like next time by yourself you'll nail it then?
Turbo (with all the extras)
gulp. Cheers evans.
