[quote="fredrikw"]that's because you don't hang around the cycling forum much. but now that you have, I hope you understand that you need to get a bike and start cycling, there's no turning back once you've been gileted.



[quote="fredrikw"]how do you know what people do when they're not posting here? get off your high horses man, you're not making any sense and you'll hardly convince anyone by having that shitty attitude.


Right back at ya! :P :twisted: :wink:

I'll stop being mean now but happen I have a bicycle and a gilet -but do need to cycle more. I think I alluded to the former if not the latter earlier in the thread!

dhd - not a bad choice - if it works, use it! If it's the one I think it is (ISTR a cracking shot of you on a bike posted a while back wearing a mountain equipment jacket) then two mates of mine have the same one and love it.

sounds very practical, I always wish I had a buckle and a strap down there when cycling ;)

trying it on for size this morning, you would get heatstroke long before the buckle became uncomfortable!

It's quite a nice feature if you're thrutching up a gully in the Cairngorms and have spindrift finding its way into your own gullies, but admittedly not the best for cycling perhaps. Unless...you get a pair of Buffalo "Supporters" maybe?

[quote]Fiendishly uncomfortable and bizarre looking creations in shiny black Pertex and fluffy black pile, these underpants are the most purchased stag-do present in the shop. Waist size M roughly equates to 32 inches (80cm), but hell, who cares, I mean are you really going to wear them?!

how can fleece-lined grundies possibly be uncomfortable?! they sound cosy (but a fashion no-no in the same way as socks and sandals!)

when the weather gets really foul i'm looking forward to seeing how the buffalo copes with mountainbiking. it's an interesting concept....
