 He's been banned from talking about Specialized bikes ever since he accidentally mistook that Status 140 for a 160.

 I think they've missed the point on the Rapha stuff. Not that I'm saying I love it and it's the coolest, but it's not fashion dipping into cycling, it's Rapha wandering into fashion. I don't think those pants are intended for use on a bike, but rather, that Rapha is trying to reach out into other markets for brand recognition.

 Henry - invest in yourself and learn to cook mate. Like anything in life, it takes practice. No one is born a good cook. However, I can guarantee when you've got the stuff that you want to eat dialled in, you'll be a happy man. Well, maybe slightly less surly.

 @sfarnum: Shots fired! Man, that is harsh. Ok, so in an average sized city only 5 percent of restaurants might be "British", but if you find one, you should enjoy it. Our fast food does not count! Although the right pie and chips can be pretty bad ass.

 Average house price in Calgary is north of 500k. Not Vancouver or Squamish levels but nothing to be smug about…

 Why does the industry do stupid things?

"Constant Innovation Agenda"

Change for the sake of change not functional improvement.

I call BS.

 The Rapha pants remind me of breakdancing fashion from the 1980s.

 Good job new guy, Henry great as always. I would like the set to be less cabin type, nice posters though. And a youtube upload instead of a proprietary vid player.

 real surprised there are still a few emtb hating dinosaurs out there. Soon enough they'll either own one or be as common as a blockbuster video store.

 The biggest problem I've found is the increase of donkey's hauling ass up stuff they couldn't climb before or shouldnt be climbing cause it's a downhill trail..and you run head on to some moron with a motor going up the wrong's sucks .. ebikes suck.

 Nice one Quinji . Maybe the rapha pants are attempting to attract the trail builders with those. You know, the rich one's

 History always repeats itself.
When bicycles were originally turned in the motorcycles, was there newspaper headlines and town criers shouting it’s wonders to the world?
