The reason for the coating is to protect the rim when using it as a tire iron, which I never do. I use plastic ones instead, and just use the 3Wrencho as a 15mm nut wrench.

Ralpha are having a sale, although this might be more interesting/relevant to the spandex-loving crowd.

^ If you like Rapha's wool stuff check out Torm, comparable quality but way cheaper and without all the marketing drama. www.torm.cc

Yes, good call- never heard of them. Stuff looks decent, but a part of me can't help but feel it sort of looks like a pale imitation of Rapha. Now don't get me wrong - I'm not typically one to believe the hype, but I have to grudgingly admit that Rapha are pretty good at shilling product

yeah I'd totally go for a Rapha brevet jersey but ~$200, forget it. I could get half a Kilo for that much.

Couple years ago the Torm stuff looked and felt exactly the same. Rapha started sending cease & desist letters, Torm changed the pocket design a little and apparently that was enough to settle it.

All the Rapha stuff looks like I should be riding my bike to church. I like a little pizazz in a kit. I just can't get excited about spending $150 on a blue jersey.

I like Raphas look of the jerseys but no way in hell I'm going to spend that much money when I can just wait and get Castelli for 25 bucks a bib/jersey.
