Pinarello Manchester

by dunnoh   May 23, 2013  

I dunno if this has been done, but I popped into the Pinarello shop in Deansgate. There is some lovely kit in there and I got to peruse Asos clothes for the first time. I've never thought of spending that kind of money on kit but having been boiled in my Aldi lightweight rain jacket the other day I'm coming round to the idea.

Is it that much better than other brands - Endura/Altrua/dhb etc?

I can only comment on their shorts but they are the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned by a long way. I guess you get what you pay for.

To be fair, lightweight rain jackets are known as boil-in-the-bag for a reason. The Aldi one might be more susceptible to over-heating - I don't know.

Asoss is very well-regarded, although when in that shop all I could think (as much about the bikes as anything else) was "lovely, but would I really pay that much for that spec?".

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...
