The shorts aren't too long, but I guess it depends how long your legs are :)


being a shortarse I think they'd be too long for me  ;D

chapeau for riding 75 miles with those on though - anything over 10 and its always lycra for me

No problem, but if you wanted some measurements I'd be happy to supply them. The ride was due to be 50 miles but I rode to the starting venue in Bath from my home in Bristol and then back after the event, which took me just over the 75 miles.

They've brought this ride froward this year to August from the end of October which I think is a good move. Despite the picture showing the depart in bright sunshine it was bitterly cold and a lot of the country lanes were flooded. All good fun though, and a sense of achievement when I got home

In all honesty I would never wear them, I live in a town centre so most singlespeed rides are short enough for regular jeans or shorts and the road bike means lycra lycra lycra  8)

don't know that area at all - need to do some riding in another area, getting stale on the roads around here

pocket flaps on shirts usually feature alongside epaulettes, barcodes and contrast colour hoods and i can't stand them....

but ive just added this tuktuk oxford shirt to my summer artillery and think the pocket flap really sets it off nicely...

Alright, alright keep your Alans on!

That's really nice, I like the pocket it compliments it. Do Tuk Tuk's have a button on the Back?

You can request it. Along with collar sizes & styles etc. Or at least you used to be able to.

I think the option was only available on certain shirts before and has now been disabled, it now says bespoke option available soon so you should be able to add your own details again in the near future.

Cool 8) I'm a bit OCD about my three button collars, I really need to get out more!
