They roll incredibly smooth and grip incredibly well even descending fast on mountain curves. While others get pinch flats, I always keep rolling. Incredible system. That said, I get six months out of these tires in the desert southwest. My previous set up was Continental Gatorskins and those would last over a year, but when you compare the ride, there simply is no comparison. They end up costing almost twice as much but I get the return in comfort, handling and speed. Never had the defects they describe in over four sets so far. Won't go back to tubes.
Any pockets on this jersey?
The reviewers are right. These may not be the lightest shoes out there but they are amazingly comfortable. Like a good pair of comfy slippers. I have to check that I have them on! They are a bit flashy and may draw a few comments, but those in the know respect them for what they are! I swapped these for my regular shoes right before El Tour de Tucson's 111 miles without a real chance to test them and had no regrets. They performed flawlessly. I won't name my previous brand of shoes but it is history for me now. Sidis from here on out!
They work incredibly well keeping me warm in 50s until it warms up. Surprising how these alone keep me warm without the need for a vest or jacket - at least for now. Really warm because of inner fleece lining.
But there lies my only issue. Before I used them I washed them with my jerseys. I had no idea that fleece like lining inside would bleed dye. I spent at least 90 minutes hand washing my favorite jerseys to get all the black out. Luckily it came out but only after repeated washing by hand. There is no warning on the label. Now I just wash them separately.
I'm a 3XL in Giordana Silverline due to my shoulders and arms and L or XL (loose fit) in Pearl Izumi. Any idea what size I should get in this jersey?
