Chpt3 JJ

Postby spannerdude » Mon May 06, 2019 16:32 pm

Hi
Has anyone bought a Chpt3 JJ (jersey jacket)

I have read about them and wondered is it the next gabba, or something different, would it replace a original alpha jersey or jacket?
it does look quite cool

Cheers

Can't see as there are many who want to wear that overpriced tat, brand needs to die a slow painful death leading to bankruptcy of the owner
I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

Cheaper at Sigma. I think prices have come down since the range first came out. It's not my cup of tea.

over priced, over hyped. Stick to Castelli if you want a gabba

Millar was def a doper and worse he tried to treat us as fools as well. (seems to work for many though)

Now i see Eurosport have Mr jiffy bag dodgy excuse Wiggins doing the Millar spot on their channel.

but but but but but but but but davey just kept the used vials (or was it syringes?) as souvenirs and then said that he was very sorry and had been a very naughty boy so that's all ok then especially as we is British a not a Johnny Foreigner in which case he would have been branded a cheat.

Bit off thread there by some people. Yes it's expensive kit and it is made by Castelli but it's very well made. The stuff I have I got off ebay but wouldn't pay full price.

look beyond the brand and who you are supporting.

how many would buy kit from landis, vino & dopestrong?

in that case you might as well bin Trek/Giro/Oakley/Sidi/POC and any other brands that any banned rider has used as they are guilty by association.

Glad I don’t live in this world where if you make a mistake (at a time when it was the norm), then apologise for that mistake offering full transparency on who was involved, pay a 2 year penalty with no income for it, then spend a lot of time and money campaigning to ensure that other people don’t make the same mistake - you still aren’t allowed to have any kind of career or earn an income for the rest of your life.

In cycling in that era, everyone doped. If you can’t move past that then move away from cycling, sadly it’s intertwined in the history and fabric of the sport.

Those socks for £15 do look like the ones you'd get in a 5 pack for a quid in the supermarket but then again they're probably incredibly trendy.
