  1. £124 for shorts. In our Summer?

  2. Howies bibs look like a good price though.

  3. Those colours!!!!

    Is it 1983 again????

  4. How comfortable are them howies bibs?

  5. Love that Hagloffs kit but they seem pricey even to me!

  6. Liking the look of all the new cycling gear at Howies.
    I could do with a pair of bib shorts and they sound decent – but I want to hear some reviews of the no-name nappy pad in them before splash out sixty beer tokens.

  7. £60 for a horrible branded t-shirt? hahahhhahahahahahahaa!

  8. Like the bike. Getting well past caring about over-priced kak clothing though.
