    yeah man, let's not argue and peace and love you to you and your clan as well. In case you hadn't noticed DK it's the ROADIE thread, where pointless arguing over pointless points is the point. Catch me drift man ?

    Have you ever been tempted to put them all together and photograph it? That's high up on my 101 things to do before I die :-)
    That would be actually not too hard if I could find the space, which I imagine would be sizeable.
    I bought a job lot of ebay a few years back, think it was only 120 quid - they all came in a roll - no covers just as sheets. Pain folding some up for use on trails/hills etc mind, never are as neat as 'normal'.

    It would be about 20m x 10m you'd need :-)

    is that having the Western Isles, Orkney and Shetland to scale though ?

    and then I'd need to cut out St Kilda from whichever it's on and move that further west.

    Still though, would be quite cool. *ponders*

    Just mainland UK, you'd need a sports centre for sure...or a very calm day and a playing field!

    I have some gore windstopper and some craft 3d armwarmers. The craft ones are more comfortable and stretchy but when it's windy or you're traveling at speed the wind does penetrate and chill a bit. The windstopper ones are the ones I use the most - not as comfortable and you need to get the right size to stop them falling down but very good in wet, cold or windy weather.

    Might have a look at some of the nanoflex warmers next. You can never have too many armwarmers

    I've got Pearl Izumi's they are the best at keeping up I've had.

    But for some reason the fleece pile inside has stayed a brilliant white, but the outside has gone that 'your missus washed them with her black tops' grey colour :/

    It was the Castelli Thermoflex, currently on offer (£24) at wiggle I was looking at.

    Would I be L or XL with my macho MTB arms?

    XL if your waist size is anything to go on :-)

    I believe my arm warmers are L but I can't find them to check, a quick measure indicates I've got roadie 32cm biceps.

    I've got some Santini 365 arm and knee warmers and they're excellent.

    I also have the Craft ones and they are indeed very comfy, I'd also agree that they are thin compared to so some. They are warm enough for me however as I run pretty hot when exercising, if it were any colder than when these were needed I'd probably be in a lightweight long sleeved jersey anyway. I got them in large and they are plenty long enough for my gibbon-like arms, no issues with them riding down on my guns though.

    I have a matchng set of Biemme arm and leg warmers from Parker International on ebay. They have been perfectly fine cost about a tenner a pair a seem to recall.
    I'm currently in bed looking at an email from Sports Tours International with places left on the Marmotte £450 plus flights to Geneva, wife is away and I've just been paid, good job it's morning and I'm not looking at it last night after a bottle of red.

    It's moist out there - not sure I'm happy on wet roads though. Does it get any easier?

    No you always feel the fear (well I do anyway, but i'm a massive gay)...Just try and avoid the Lines / Catseyes / Utility covers.

    I thought it'd be okay with 20+ years motorbiking in all weathers but I'm clearly über jey nowadays. Don't even like downhill on narrow lanes (justified by some of the idiotic c0cks in vehicles) especially when it's damp, pot-holed & there's loose gravel everywhere.

    Forgot the Garmin too so don't even know how I did on Cnut Climb today.

    I always use my roadrat in weather like this. I'm much more confident using disk brakes in the wet - it's reassuring to feel them working instantly rather than that slight delay you get with rim brakes. That's not to say I haven't fallen off it though
