I suppose imitation is a form of flattery.

The CS Grupetto kit has been kicking around London’s Famous London since 2008.

Still, the Rapha version may not be the better one. According to Wayne Peach, the man who designed Grupetto’s kit,

“I very much doubt that the pockets are large enough to contain a proper size Melton Mowbray pork pie, which as we know, is a design benchmark for all grupetto kit”

So at least there’s that.
