[Please excuse me if this goes through more than once, but it appears to have bounced back]

OK, I've read Krabbe's "The Rider" 20 times now, VBQ isn't due for four weeks, and here in Olympia we're officially on the 32nd straight day of rain. So, has anyone ponied up for a copy of Rouleur magazine, published by the British clothing company Rapha? I grit my teeth and was about to pony up the $15.00, but found that on top of that they charge excessively for postage.

The stories they post on their website http://www.rapha.cc/ aren't bad (London snobby, maybe) and it looks like they apply pretty amazing production values to everything they do.

So is the book any good? Has anyone a copy they'd like to sell me?
