Decent entry level kit

First the good: good looking kit and pretty good value for money for an entry level set. The jersey/bib/bag combo is almost too cheap to pass up, and the sizing is accurate, I usually wear a large (in non-Italian stuff) and the large fit fine. The downside for me is that the chamois isn't a high level one. It's better than nothing, but it's not a high-quality pad. Plus the whole kit is made in China. If you're a big BMC fan or looking for a good entry level setup, this kit has your name all over it. If you're doing longer rides and need a chamois that's comfortable for 40-50 miles and a little more performance from your jersey, this may not be your bag, baby.
