Just seen this in the local store - should be on the website soon. Usual range of stuff - shorts, tops etc - but with bib shorts and gillets the attraction for me this year. I can't really justify replacing last year's kit because it's still going strong.

wooo hooooo have they got any of the things on my huge shopping list from D74?

Hmmm.  All the longs that I bought I gave away unused,  The fit was really bizarre, you needed twig legs and a massive beer belly.  If you'd ever cycled in your life then you'd have been too big on the thighs.

D74 - sounds like they might have fitted a few pirates...

I got some padded winter tights from there last autumn. They fitted but they didn't half chafe, not the padding but the seam up the leg, I've still got the scars.

They are funny scars. 

Sorry to be mean.  But they are.

I bought the winter ones last timeand took the padding out ......................... it weighed a ton. the crotch was still a good few inches away from little jim and his two mates though

I have twig legs and a massive beer belly....

..Thanks again Dunc.
Only worn one pair, the others are still unused if you have got your belly back.

Buney - as in the cycling shorts have been photosopped onto an underwear / swimtrunk model by someone in a GCSE art class?  That sort of thing?

Or that it is a photo, and the leg seams really are baggy so they hang an inch off the leg.

Thwe leg seams really are that baggy

Not on my firm muscular thighs of course but on a lardy arse like Dunc they waft in the breeze

Maybe the baggy end is a vent for p*ss?

Oi, I'll have you know my thighs are 56cm of solid muscle.

and the gut is?

Doubles as flotation in the swim and as ballast on the downhills on the bike.  I deliberately keep it there for these reasons.

so that's why i don't go fast on the down hills even when i peddle like mad and then just let the bike go

not enough ballast

i can sort that
