Your Cart is Empty

No Love Lost

01 February 2008

Your summer catalogue arrived in my letterbox the other day. Baby blue and chocolate brown leapt off the pages at me. Having always coveted a ZZ Top, the new colour scheme justified a shot of retail therapy. I had to have one. I got one.

Curiously the catalogue was addressed to 'Matt Rayment and Matthew Forte'. This raised a wry smile from me, as the other Matt is my good buddy and riding partner - but we have never actually lived at the same address. This may not seem a big deal, but when I txt my wife "I love you" or "you're beautiful" she replies, "did you mean to send that to me or matt?" Matt and I were close so it cut pretty deep when he fled home to Oz a few weeks back.

I digress. The ZZ Top arrived (I felt better) and I headed out to Woodhill. The top is cut beautifully. It's the only one I've had that doesn't ride up my back, and I remained remarkably cool in the Woodhill sun. As I chased Matt's ghost up the Combo Trail, I was comfortable in this snappy top that's not a lurid shade of whatever nor has "Team Funke International Extreme Vision" plastered over it.

I really rate your gear. The shorts I got last year are still going strong belting out six hard days each week. Thanks.

Matt Rayment, Waitakere
