Ha! You should have seen the queues to upsize finishers' jerseys after Peaks Challenge Falls switched to Hub.cc.
So it wasn't the free ice creams...

A bloke tried to sell me a shirt in Bali once. The left sleeve was 6 inches longer than the right. The buttons didn't match the button holes, and the neck size was around the size of a coffee cup.

I always regret not getting one....what a conversation opener. :D

He's an Italian on a bicycle in Milan. He knows more about it than you do. You can relax. It is as timeless as it needs to be.

Yes, yes, I agree. I wonder if it's the same problem as the "for sale" section which results in multiple posts if you edit a post too quickly

I do like this one, lovely suit. I'm always a bit suss though of these stylish Mediterranean cyclist photos, they look more like a fashion shot for a magazine rather than someone out on a bike. The bikes are always so suspiciously clean and shiny.

The photographer does do fashion shots for a living. While the bike may or may not get ridden in the rain, the heavy U-lock hanging on the handlebars indicates it is used regularly.
