I am such a Rapha censored , but at £20 each, 'mug' would seem to be appropriate :shock:

    Keeping to their normal pricing I see - £20 for a mug ! Checked out the espresso cup set : 2 for £40 - they are extracting the Michael here.

    Costs them around USD6 per mug or less in bulk... Check out the wholesale section of notneutral.com... A bit dumb of them to have mugs with the notneutral brand on them.

    Guess people like them/their ethos so buy into the stuff - when they tell you their source and you can see what the end-user there can pay, and they'd obviously be buying in bulk so get better prices, then I personally think you see the truth of their super-inflated prices. Lost of their stuff is nice but sometimes appears to be taking the P* a bit too much.

    Bull

    censored

    But then I have more than a few equivalent things such as that so....

  • So-called "luxury" lifestyle goods. They're in a similar area as Burberry in that respect, who are not just a raincoat manufacturer aiming for the bottom line.
  • I did just get a £25 voucher, which when I tried to use it was valueless – someone had apparently previously used the code, so I had to set about getting a replacement, which was fine in the end. I guess like in fancy bike shops, the name attracts status-obsessed types to work there and with that there's always a risk of some backroom pilfering.

    Just go on Vistaprint and you can make the same mug for about £6 delivered.

    My work colleagues are always winding me up that cycling is 'the new golf' I was bloody mortified to hear that but stuff like this makes me think it may be! Basically ranges marketed at people with loads of money that don't know what to spend it on! It does look lovely but at 20 quid a pop that's pretty steep for a set. Love Rapha's gear but it'sdefinitely fashion prices.
  • Not so sure what the moaning is about ... It's not as if Rapha are the BBC ... You do all have a choice ...
  • How much? Sod that, I'm off to the Oakley website to find something that's better value for money! :wink:

    Haha, I think they have a sale on, 80quid for a belt is almost approaching good value ;-)

    Bargain at £155. Look, it even has armpit vents cut with lasers!

    I suppose you've got to pay for those lasers somehow!
