    It would be ok but it's at home along with my bike. I'm off to ATP Release the Bats tonight... you can stand outside look after your bike then I'll come and and look after it for a good 20 seconds before clearing off :lol:

    XL is fine for rapha stuff... which is good as that's as big as it gets...

    From memory - the Hampsten top was 40 or so from £120 ?

    Stowaway was £80 from £180

    LS jersey £40 from £110.

    Good value really - I'd never pay full price for the kit - it is waaay overpriced.

  • What is their sizing like - will it fit a 6"2 man with a 38 inch waist, 44 inch chest and thighs like Godzilla's?

    Control yourselves girls..... :wink:

    Oooh, that's really quite close to work. I can feel my wallet throbbing with excitement, better not stand up for a minute or two.
  • cougiecougie Posts: 22,512
    Woodford - I'm similar size to you - most kit I'm medium, but Rapha - I'm a large. Didnt try any of the longs - but I love the look of their 3/4s.

    I got given some Assos kit in XL, which I had to exchanged for their TG size. Which I think stands for the humiliatingly named category of tres grand.

    Personally I think I am average size, but then everyone probably does. At least I am not yet 16 stone.

    so W2B are you coming clothes shopping or not...(I can't quite believe I've asked another man that question)

    a 38 waist is not average dude... I use the TG size for assos as well I think... might be XL though 34 waist and 44-46 chest I believe

    I can't tonight - and tbh I have enough kit already......

    As it is I think the Assos stuff is overrated and suspect that Rapha will be much the same.
  • cougiecougie Posts: 22,512
    Rapha is nice kit I have to say. And compared to Rock Racing - even at full price its good value.

    I'd not buy it at full price though - its not worth that much to me.
  • Would they sell online? I want some 3/4's.
    I know it's over priced, I don't need it, I'm saving for a motorbike, but.....Hang on, Christmas is upon us....
