Received these this morning.I’m keeping one and the other I’ll give to a mate for his birthday.

both are awesome and worth the money to replace those plastic things.Just so easy to remove the valves now and not get your fingers knocked on the spokes👍👍

which one do I keep though 🤔🧐

I got the Park Tool one last week. Much better than those plastic things.

Those old classic soccer boots are often repurposed by classic bike riders who use toe clips for events like Eroica. If you flatten the underside on a belt sander, they are the perfect cycling shoes and they look like the original period shoes too. If anyone has an old pair lying around in UK 8, let me know and I'll take it off your hands.

check mr price sports and maybe even mikes sports for a cheap pair of soccer shoes. Game should have olympics.

Jokes aside, I like front pouches. Marsupials are rad.

I'm busy doing a front pouch/frame bag/dry bag combo project for my Tourer. It won't say Rapha but I will give myself a lifetime warranty on the stitching, zips and material!

This made my morning - I don’t care if you are doing the dirty kanza, your bike has a manbag 

I have some flannel shirts that no longer fit and I’ll scribble Rapha on them as a bonus

Is that front skewer on the right way?

To punish yourself, have you tilted the front of your saddle up a bit ?

I hope you have the matching fanny pack too

Who needs enemies. You bunch of morons! 😂😂😂

My Klipsch earbud fell out on Wednesday while cycling and a tractor went over it.
Not paying a small fortune  for a pair again so ordered these off Amazon for €50.Read a few reviews and decided to give them a try.
Wow they actually sound great for the money.
Way better than original iPhone earbuds👍
They also water resistant and come with a soft silicone cover to protect them from drops.

Come clean here Gummi ... were you riding illegally on a farmers land and he was chasing you with his tractor, your ear piece fell out and you were too scared/did not have the time to turn around and get it before the old timer in the tractor ran over it while still gunning for you?

Been eyeing those..full report especially wet weather please! As well as ease of access on the bike...seen some dislikes with the clipping system not able to secure it snugly??

Clipping system is not the best, it comes with shoulder straps too so that you can use it like a real, man bag not to be confused with a real man, bag. This is for if you don't feel hipster enough.

On bike access is certainly easier than a saddle bag.

There are better options out there, I was actually keen a FARR, but there was some urgency getting it on time, and for once the Rapha one was one of the more cost effective ones.

Has more money than 99% of South African's and buys the lowest end Spez he can find?!?

Good on him for not splashing out and buying the biggest meanest bike money can buy, and is clearly a bike that will serve as an entry level ride around bike. If the bug bites then I am sure he would upgrade.

Can you imagine the image that would generate at a time when the country is bleeding financially.

Now Percy is a damned fine wrench. He worked his way up under the watchful eye of the team at Action Cycles before they unfortunately closed their doors.
