When will you ride them Sam?
And on which bike?
Thanks Dov. Purchase averted.
Shut it you
Better deals to be had.
I really rate the new ones. Brake track is awesome.
I was only asking.
Also: if you're buying, what are you getting rid of?
Zipps are always on sale. Overpriced buyer tat.
I bought some Hunt 4 Season Gravel Disc wheels for the CAADX. They are marvellous.
Hunt don't do Black Friday. Be like Hunt.
Waits for someone to come along and say that Hunt are just rebadged kinlins and novatecs.
Yes as most people imagined that they actually made all their own stuff. Like Mason do with their frames 😀
I thought all you lot had kids now?
The last thing you should be doing is buying crap you don’t need for the hell of it. By the time they’re our age they’ll be living elbow deep in the junk we’ve thrown away due to endless consumerism.
Fuck Black Friday. Go support an independent bike shop and put your money in the pocket of a real person if you actually need bike stuff.....Which I highly doubt.
You’ve changed man.
Great thread. Wise words Bobby.
I am way too cheap to buy anything that has a brand premium.
My little lbs made the Road CC tweet roundup. Such a great shop.

Indeed I have.
Running a small independent business will change your view on many, many things.
@Bobbiego speaks truth and Graeme Raeburn is shutting the shop completely for a day to just repair stuff for people.
I'm meeting the guys from Milltag this week. Prior to meeting them I would like to have an idea of what people want to have in terms of kit. If you have a piece of kit you really want give me a shout here or by any other means of communication. I will update this thread once I've met with the Milltag guys and take it from there.
Good work @Matt_N
Mainly we stick to tops and bibshorts, plus polo shirts.
Some of the above may not be true.
I might come back to the club.
Have you left then?
I'd be up for some bibshorts.
I try to leave and the polo shirts pull me back in.
The meeting unfortunately never happened, I went round to their offices as planned but they had shut shop for the rona virus. Hoping to rearrange it digitally, will keep you posted.
