    No. If you're trying to justify more purchases you need to do better than that.

  • Anyone else think Joelsim needs to MTFU?
    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

    You know you're just being silly when cyclists on a cycling forum are telling you not to buy stuff!

    I did once, I did have tonsilitis though so I have an excuse.

    Bibshorts & kneewarmers with ronhills over the top. Was going well till I puked.

    If you feel the need for them - go for it. Maybe your winter tights are thinner than ours.

    I've not worn my winter tights yet, been shorts every day so far except one which was normal tights.

    I have Gore Oxygen SO. Which I'm yet to wear, but I haven't done a winter before so was just asking.

    Feel free to call me a soft southern jessie or whatever, but I already know that.
