Caps Season

Wednesday, 22 November 2017

Cold out there? For readers in the northern hemisphere this feels like the season to wear caps so a punctual reminder that you can get some gear and support this blog at the same time. There are t-shirts, jerseys and socks and the caps are back in stock.

Caps are £7.95 (roughly $10.50 / €9) and what you see is what you get, a classic cycling cap made in Italy and the Prendas website has more details and photos.

As loyal readers will know there’s no hard sale here. Every piece could be tagged with a prompt to buy gear but that would be distracting, no? Instead there’s just the occasional reminder that you can get kit including a t-shirt, socks and a jersey too.

Sales help keep the wheels turning and mean someone reads the UCI rulebook or pro team financial accounts so you don’t have to, the same for checking out race routes and previews and more like producing the annual calendar of pro races for your diary or phone.

It’s been great to see photos of readers taking their caps and jerseys to familiar roads and exotic places alike. Kind thanks to everyone who has purchased kit already.

Obviously if you have bought something you dont have to buy more, there are limits to how many caps or socks anyone needs and these occasional prompts still work thanks to new or existing readers making their first order.

Kind of a mean thing to do there Adam. Announcing some shady deals to buy stuff that almost certainly doesn’t kick anything back to inrng at all, AND putting it up in the comments section of an article detailing how the kit supports the site. Insult to injury, ya jerk.

A dumb troll with a vested interest.

Post your crap elsewhere East, it will not be appreciated here.

The spam comment has been deleted. This big has has about 103,000 comments… and 963,000 spam comments but these are normally picked up by filter software, sometimes a few make it through.

I’ve got the jersey and it’s mint. Gets lots of kudos and is well made to boot. Buy one!

Yup. The Jersey is high quality and is my go to garment for summer sportives.

Will the arm warmers be making a comeback? I have had my pair for two seasons and my only regret is not buying two sets!

Just ordered the cap and jersey, and received an on-the-spot discount that covers the cost of shipping, and then some! Can’t complain about that.

Finally ordered a jersey, cap and socks – thanks so much for all the brilliant posts over the years. Long may INRNG continue!

Great looking kit, raise a glass to the designer.

Just wondering if anyone on the blog (or indeed INRNG) could advise on size. I’d love a cap, but previous purchases of retro caps have proved no match for my massive head. Haven’t tried any from prendas yet.
