Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Best way to market a $650 jacket is to show a model going into a sewer.

Wow... 650?

If i had 650 and need a nice outerwear for camping i'd go to big5 and get a two nice windbreakers and a nice heavy down coat for 100dollars.

And spend the next 500 dollars on twinkies.

I spent $500 CAD on a Canada Goose duck down parka, but that's actually worth it, IMO, as it'll last a decade and keep me warm in -15C weather. $650 for essentially a fancy windbreaker is pushing it. Sort of reminds me of Patagonia's stuff, in terms of price.

I don't see how you could misunderstand my sentence even with a rudimentary grasp of English grammar.

I don't personally think Vancouver is cold enough for these, but chances are all the Asian kids have them anyway, eh Vixtor?



It's actually worth the cash though.

Merino is pricy though, and if it's good quality and well cut the shirt prices aren't far out there.

That jacket looks nice and I would hope it feels great wearing it, but $650 seems like a lot.

In terms of my cycling needs, I don't need any 650 dollar jacket.. I'd rather not have the restrictions of a winter jacket . Some think a 50 dollar base layer to be too expensive.. With my high tech base layer, I don't need a heavy winter jacket. I go out in cold down to the freezing point , that along with a light jacket works just fine.

I know, 650 seems a bit much, but this would make a nice addition to your kit.

Don't feel bad about spring flowers. I guarantee you'll be as perfectly comfortable wearing the Orion in a 65 degree spring rainstorm as you would a 15 degree blizzard.



I reiterate, though. The prospect of a jacket made of cotton being $650. Is crazy.

But you see, it is made from Egyptian cotton, and as everyone knows Egypt is the land of the Pyramids of Giza, which have lasted thousands of years. Is it not then reasonable to assume that that jacket will also last thousands of years and serve to house your mummified corpse?
