No, unfortunately I didn't win the lottery
I am however a total old fusspot when it comes down to outdoor clothing. There's a winter on its way and if I don't keep riding I pile on the kilos, which sets me back for next season and I can't be doing with that roller stuff either.
Rapha reckon they make the finest cycling clothing in the world and I don't think they can make a claim like that without backing it up. Although I may have just been suckered by the fancy videos though
, time will tell.
I'll do a write up on it sometime in January when I've had a good chance to try it out and as you said Merino is top quality and lasts for ages, which is what I expect from the fancy Rapha stuff.
I'm even looking forward to it raining now, some of those Onza muddy guards and I'm set to go, I don't have a strategy for the snow, but that might have to be the mountain bike and studded tyres combo or the cross country skis from the loft.
@ Highlandsflyer You're right there, cross country skiing and cycling put very similar demands on clothing.
