Thanks to Prendas Ciclismo

Monday, 30 September 2013

Every sponsor of this site gets a note of thanks and now it’s time to say thanks to Prendas Ciclismo who have been sponsoring during the Vuelta and the World Championships.

The British bike shop specialise in clothing and seem to have special talent of laying their hands on retro items. Prendas are also sellers of the Cycling Anthology, if you want to buy the third volume of the book due out soon, think about giving them your money rather than large online retailers named after Brazilian rivers. If you haven’t dealt with them before, you’ll find Mick and Andy very helpful and personable.

Smartphone Upgrade
A housekeeping note to say a share of the funds has gone on upgrading the website for readers with smartphones. There are more and more readers these days and an increasing share come via mobile devices. The new design looks better and should showcase the pictures more.

This happened on Saturday and promptly crashed the website. The site had been backed up and I asked the hosting company to restore the backup… and they uploaded someone else’s website. This explains why for a few hours this site was selling ABC Children’s books.

After Saturday’s blip I know the upgrade has changed the comments section for smartphone users, they are no longer “nested”, meaning replies are placed on chronological order rather than conversational order. Hopefully this can be fixed, the software menu page doesn’t allow for this but I’m working on it.

Advertise on
Finally if you or your business would like to advertise on here in the coming months, drop me an email.

Prendas rule

Barry September 30, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Yup, a bunch of gents. Personal replies and advice on purchases, they are the LBS of online retailers.

Prendas-stars! Actually phoned my wife to check sizing and apologise for having to
substitute a more expensive item – at no additional cost!!

Prendas – always fantastic service and you have the peace of mind of knowing there are real people there to provide customer service as is not the case with the big online retailers

Matt L September 30, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Prendas are great. Refreshing to have people actually give you a call when somethings up with an order. Fantastic customer service all round.

Prendas – agree a good bunch of guys with quality kit and personal service.

Paul G September 30, 2013 at 8:44 pm

Would never have known about them until they appeared here. Great service given, so will be ordering my Christmas Pressie soon.

Rhodri Gwyn September 30, 2013 at 9:24 pm

I swear by their winter socks!

Andy Logan September 30, 2013 at 11:16 pm

My favourite inrng sponsor — by a mile! I wish them all the best.

Alex222 October 1, 2013 at 12:41 am

I can vouch for their arm warmers

Anonymous October 1, 2013 at 1:33 am

Prendas Winter socks and their shoe covers are the best. Nice to see them collaborating with one of my favourite cycling websites

Anybody promoting clothing from our friends at SANTINI is a hero to us, sponsoring Inner Ring is great too. Well done boys!

Tommy B October 1, 2013 at 8:37 am

Thanks for sponsoring this wonderful site, Prendas. Xmas orders to follow!

Nick October 1, 2013 at 9:15 am

Thought i’d join the prendas love in – class company, i go back time and again for their products

Mike October 1, 2013 at 9:22 am

Thanks to Inner Ring for a consistently great website and I can confirm that the smart phone experience is great.

Bom W October 1, 2013 at 9:30 am

Prendas is a great outlet, I always recommend them to people new to cycling, and big thanks to Inner Ring for the upgrade and the outstanding articles.
I’ve been visiting the site from nearly the beginning and its part of my daily ritual.

Dave October 1, 2013 at 12:08 pm

All we need is Prendas to step in and produce the long awaited //INRNG jerseys!

Hussein October 1, 2013 at 2:03 pm

I agree!

Caps and socks too

W October 1, 2013 at 12:18 pm

The old mobile version of inrng was perfectly fine, I just can’t see the need for fixing/upgrading something just because it “looked better”. Which it doesn’t. Think of people with not so new and shiny devices. Well, my 2c anyway.

The Inner Ring October 1, 2013 at 12:28 pm

I understand. It’s not just for the looks although as the reader that’s what you see. For me there are some better features behind the software and page loading times should be quicker too, useful for those not on a Wifi connection.

I’m in the US and I’ve been a customer of Prendas for some time now. I get my Santini kit from them as its hard to find here. I’m with the other people who have commented, Mick and Andy are class 100%. Service is beyond what you expect and product is quality. Someone else said it best, they are the LBS of the internet.

Steppings October 2, 2013 at 12:14 am

I agree Prendas is a great business and I have been there once (claim to fame!).

S L October 2, 2013 at 9:20 am

Love my La Vie Claire kit from Prendas, great personal service!!

Bundle October 2, 2013 at 2:19 pm

I was a recurrent customer of Prendas before it sponsored this dear blog… Still have to buy something from them after it. 🙂
