I wore this out on a 54 F day with rain and was comfortable. Temps after the rain got up to 59 F. Although it is not waterproof, it kept the water off of my head. My head did not overheat, and the very thin materiel fit well under my helmet that usually doesn't have enough space for a cotton cycling cap to fit comfortably. The cap fit is a bit large, which is nice because most cycling caps do not cover enough of my head to look good and feel comfortable. Usually the straps of the helmet are on top of the folds of the hat creating pressure points. I would recommend this to anyone who rides in cool temps and rain. Save money on the Assos Rain Cap and buy this!
This mug is 12 oz. filled right to the brim. So it is only good for about 10 OZ. It is perfect for a double longo or a cappuccino from my Nespresso machine. It is very well made heavy duty ceramic made in Croatia by Royale that keeps your coffee hot a little bit longer, and feels great in your hand. This mug makes coffee drinking THAT much better! I guarantee that you will make the cyclist on your gift list VERY happy for $18 bucks!
I first bought the medium, because my head size was at the limit of the M size helmet. It was very uncomfortable with lots of pressure points etc. So I returned it and bought a large. The large is too big and looks goofy. I can live with it because it can cinch down on my head, but I am finding it to have a lot of pressure points also. I would return it, but I already cut the super long chin strap. I have since purchased a Kask Veritgo, and find it to be the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn.
I love these knee "protectors". When temperatures drop below 65, this is the perfect knee warmer. They provide just enough warmth and protection when there is a nip in the air. It does not have too much insulation, but keeps those knees warm and moving free. I have had a knee injury, and I am a little more sensitive to the colder temps. I have not ever had any problems with slippage.
I love Cateye. I have the V3 on 5 bikes and was disappointed that they discontinued it. I needed a new computer for another bike, so I tried this. It arrived today and will be returned because it does not have a strap or sensor. If you do not read the description carefully, you will not know that it does not include heart rate strap and cadence and speed sensor. All you get is the useless computer. But Competitive Cyclist does provide a nice picture of the Strap and sensor that you do not get. LAME!
Cyclist seem to accept fraud like its commonplace these days. This bike claims to be handmade in Italy. Turns out its ok in Italy to call something "hand made in Italy" if it was painted there. So don't buy this bike if you want a bike hand made in Italy.
The next problem was that the headset bearings were bad. This is because when they bearings are pressed into the frame it takes a huge amount of lateral pressure on the bearing body and they are not designed for it. I was really confused by the lack of engineering in such an expensive bike.
My other bikes include a Time RXR Ulteam, and a Look 595, so I know how much better a real handmade European bike is. I found that this bike was heavy and not comfortable at all. Super stiff and unforgiving. It is also a bit heavy.
The only thing that this bike has going for it is that it is beautiful. If that is worth the insane price tag, then go for it.
If you want to buy a bike that is Handmade in Italy and is stiff, responsive, light, AND beautiful, try a Colnago C60.
