    They could have made out it was also a tax shelter just to really irk the posters and it was thanks to the increased postage that they were able to take advantage of this 'testing facility'

    And they only offer merino jerseys while the originator offers a whole raft of quality kit.

    I love their stuff, its pretty much all I wear but majority of mine is bought in sales and second hand.

    I cant afford it outright and dont like the way they have increased prices but I'll keep buying it. (Stupidly)

    I'm even called rapha in the office.

    I bought one thanks to this thread, it is a nice fit and in my opinion looks really good. The next jersey I buy will be a Torm. The only downside is the low wash temperature, if my wife throws this in the washing machine I'll have a jersey fit for an action man.

    Also put the jersey in a laundry bag to stop pilling.
    Groundeffect make decent stuff thats not too expensive
  • Free shiping on orders over £50 until 11th April currently.

    I wash mine at 40 and it's fine.

    So I emailed Rapha cos their forgot password facility didn't work for me and also mentioned the refer a friend discount.

    They emailed back impressively quickly (sorted the password prob for me) and apologised about the refer a friend facility stopping:

    "In regards to the refer a friend scheme, sadly this is something that we had to stop, as it was quite heavily abused online, which is a real shame."

    In a follow up email after I thanked him he said they'd have rather kept it going...

    ...so anyway, SCUMMY FORUMS LIKE THIS HAVE RUINED IT FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAD INTELLIGENCE ENOUGH TO JUST REGISTER A NEW ACCOUNT RATHER THAN ASK ON A FORUM :P :P :P (http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40013&t=12904607&hilit=rapha+refer+a+friend)
