    I picked one of these up from the source last year - very nice. The bill is a little floppy, it's more of a city cap that you can get away just wearing, nothing that flips out of the way with any authority when you're really chewing on your stem!

They either squeeze my head like a band clamp or perch up on the point like a demitasse cup on a cantaloupe.
    I just ordered a couple masks from Rothera too, but I already have about 10 of his caps. Hands down my favorite.

    Totally agree Jorn
    I have a couple Rotheras that are doable and some Rapha classics from a number years back but favs are the Giro synthetic ones and the Enishi I bought in that group buy you did. Maybe I need a couple more of those. Totally miss the ones from the 70's 80's that were paper thin and were quite breathable.

    Should I do another pre order run of these??

    This last batch was done with Hellosalt on IG. Made locally in Boulder, CO.

    FWIW:
    Rapha caps, together with Swrve and Hovies ones run a bit small.
    Original cinelli ones are ok if your head is on the large-ish side. Also the sportful ones, they do a nice one with mesh in the middle which is quite good when is warm.

    Anyone want these? (reg size) Send me a bag of coffee and I'll make these magically appear at your doorstep. PM me if you think you can use them.93942892-8B10-4F29-8C71-6CDD94DDECF5_1_105_c.jpg478F4AFA-AF8A-4C62-B17A-80262328CD1B_1_105_c.jpg

    They are in great shape. The dounut one looks yellowy but it's just the color balance.
