Thanks for the link. Really enjoyed that, loved some of the comments on why they ride. Had one of those days in the saddle today where everything just came together. :D

I'm not a lover or hater of Rapha (though half of them look like they should be on penny farthing's, guess that's the Rapha look?) but liked the flick...

Wouldn't call myself a fan of Rapha but I do enjoy the videos they make. This one is no exception. :)

Great video. It really brought out the emotions that I experience on a long ride.

Those pink lady C.K. hubs are simply must haves for those Rapha riders, WHY?

I think I must listen to piano music next time I go riding on local gravel roads. Not forgetting my full Rapha kit.

It's going to be so emotional that I will cry.

I like the videos, not the whole vibe that they give off for their clothes.

The banjo scene, taxadermy scene and lots of those dirt roads were shot in West Virginia, when they stayed at my team's title sponsor http://www.rawtalentranch.com/.

Why is their attire such a hot/sensitive topic? They're riding their bikes. Aren't we all here because we like riding bikes? :noidea:

Mainly because they only represent a particular segment of the population, that might be one reason.

So do you. So do I.


I don't imagine this will go anywhere.

I really don't care either way about Rapha gear but I tend to think they give off a slightly pompous feel...
