Listers,

As one who used Burley Bev's rain capes and half-a-gaitors extensively in Eugene, OR, years ago (pre-Gore-tex and well within the CR timeline) this new/old fashion entry took me back a ways....

The latest rain cape from Brooks is absolutely the most fashion-forwad cyclist's rain cape that I have ever seen. Very retro, too, and definitely a KOF-qualifier as such with the waxed cotton and tweed trim.

I'm sure the price will be suitably astronomical, too, but many of our "tweedier" riders may still go for it....

Jon Spangler who is hurting, indeed, over the University of Oregon's loss tonight in the absolutely non-KOF BCS despite the fact that the BCS itself is heretical....
