Arse! Far too big for me, really fancied those ones too... I just bought a pair of Crocs the other day, the wife said it was divorce if I ever bought another pair.
There are theories at the bottom of my jargon.

Temu has some Croc lights, could be handy if your wife kicks you out and you need to find somewhere to sleep!!

That's really helpful to me, thanks. Just put in an order for four different pairs (not keeping them all, will check out and return).

Distance selling regs mean you can technically "cancel" the order no matter what they say anyway. Nothing they put in their T&Cs affects your statutory rights.

Wheels (of cheese). Or some contrived punchline to a gag about tempting bikepackers with cheese along the lines 'Come on Bear Bones' … 

Anyway, as I think it counts as nutrition: a full kilo of Cornish Camenbert down from £18.00 to £5.40 or a 3 cheese gift box at £9 rather than £18. + £6 shipping.

So apparently my order with Evans is still "processing". Clowns.

What's the odds everything magically goes out of stock.

Re: Warroad sizing - I’m 173cm. The 54.5cm is compact but it fits me. I think if I was buying again I’d want the 56.5cm.

I’m usually a 54cm on most drop bar bikes.

Got myself a Big Al for £175 and a Revelation fork to go with it for £200.

It looks like they might have sent me one item.

What a joke. There was definitely stock when I ordered as some items only had a couple left.

Can only speak for the Norwich branch of Evans but there was a massive pile of all sorts of 5-10s in a range of sizes. Might be worth a trip if you have one near by.

Me too, at least it's the pair I wanted. The other was a bonus.

Not bad price but I built mine new for £500 more back when the green frames were out - that was with 29+... I guess the price of a new frame has skewed SH prices though.
Worth noting it's a size small (so no use to me!) and the truss steel frames are quite heavy.
