Did anyone else notice the piece in Cycle on the young Aspergers lad Joe, adventurer and online camping shopkeeper?

My order has arrived only four days after making it. Something of a miracle as it passed through Hermes hands.

Yes I did notice it, but hadn't got around to looking at his site. Turns out it's mostly a blog with a shop on the side!

I'm not sure if I like his idea of 99p shipping. I like that he's upfront with the costs but if, from what I read in the magazine, he's trying to come at this from a sort of sustainable angle, it would make more sense to charge a realistic shipping rate rather than subsidising it into the items (or into bank of mum?).

That's nothing. I ordered something on the 6th (not from him) and later that day received a mail from DPD saying my parcel had been despatched on the 5th!

I like the idea of the emergency derailleur hanger.

Goose down bed socks ! https://www.weirdosonbikes.com/product/down-boots/

I have some goose down booties. My mothers partner bought them years back. Didn’t like them and offered to me.  As you’ve surmised great for cold camping or inside hostels or mountain huts etc in the evening.
