Thanks to Prendas Ciclismo

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.

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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    • 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.

  5. 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.
