Didn't really need half finger gloves but grabbed a pair when I saw the price for $22. Love the slip-on style, don't like Velcro gloves because the snatch the jersey when getting things from rear pockets and can't wash them together with anything. Very functional design and Good choice of materials throughout the gloves, breatheable material in the palm, reflective band on the back plus 2 reflective pull-tabs and sweat wiping fleece around the thumb. Fits nicely in Europian sizes

I have used many other brands such PI, Giro, Giordana and others before buying these. Prior to these pair, I have to say PI fit best, Giro is okay and Giordana was too much bunching up in the palm area. Too lazy to go back and identify the models, but also bought from CC. These Extendo gloves use thin and stretchy materials so I don't really feel wearing gloves at all. My PI pair might have a bit better protection though, but the Extendo have an edge on the fit.

This pair of bib tights is almost perfect in every way from material, design and the look. It does a good job protecting from freezing cold weather and looks good,too. However, there is one problem and it has turned out to be the major problem is the seams throughout the garment, they are not flat seam, especially the seam around the edge of carbon chamois, it's not flat and the edge of carbon chamois is thick and sharp so it chafed my skin pretty bad when wearing directly to skin (you know what I mean ,-} ). The only way I can rid of this chafing problem is to wear a brief long enough to cover the edge of chamois. Hope Capo is aware of this and correct this design flaw.

These gloves have high quality construction and a lot of of thoughts behind the dual chamber design. These sure will keep hands warm from freezing cold weather. Unfortunately they are a little bit too bulky and lack of dexterity for my taste. Would be perfect skiing gloves.

I live in Portland area where it rains 10 months a year and these tights are just what I need for most of the time. Nice compression and fit every spot. Completely windproof, haven't tested water protection yet. I don't usually start the ride when it's pouring, but it rains here anytime during the ride, as long as they have good enough water protection to get home, I am okay with it. Chamois is okay, on the edge for 50 miles. I am 5'8" 150#, ordered M first, they were too tight, sent back for a L and they fit nicely with plenty of compression still, just about 1" too long. The only dislike is the Castelli's name printed on both sides of the tights that already started peeling off after a few rides. I don't really care much for these and rather not have them printed on , but come one Castelli! do it right then just leave the prints off. Why made a nice tights and half a$$ job on these. Made in Macau

I've using this jersey with a light weight base layer in the 40's degree F and it just feels great and toasty the whole ride. Prior to this, my other jerseys are not warm enough and my jackets are a bit heavier and bulkier than I wanted. This jersey is just perfect for 40-60F range. It's light weight, windproof front and very breathable back as the description. High quality materials, in fact the windproof material is so silky smooth that I feel sliding through the wind with little drag. I don't know if people noticed, but the front pocket is a very neat design because Castelli uses mesh material inside, so I use it as a mini vent when climbing. The combination of colors is great, so no mater which color you choose, you're always visible. I am 5'8" 150lbs and the M fits nicely. The only minor dislike is the big red advertising Castelli waist band in the back.

I own a few pieces of De Marchi and everything fits me perfectly in size M except this tight. The cut does not contour with the body and the fabric has no compression, so that leaves the fabric bunching up here and there and the rear looks like wearing a wet diaper. No zippers at the ankles and the elastic grip bands are kind of too big. They use the same material on the upper back panel which I think is not very breathable, overkill and overheating in the back easily. A friend ordered this for me at 50% off and I didn't want to bother him to return it, so I just gave it away to a college kid in my cycling club.

The carbon construction seems be tougher and vey very scratch and ding resistant. I have the aluminum Ultegra pedals on the other bike and they are about the same age, the aluminum ones look kind of beat up now. Part of it because the brighter color on the aluminum makes every scratch very visible.

I was a bit concerned about the sizing on this bike because BMC sizes (S=17, M=19...)are at least 1 inch larger than other bike makers. However, after reading the sizing from the BMC website, I felt more comfortable ordering a small, I am 5'7" and it fits me fine. Still have about 1" clearance over the top tube. A lot lighter than my old 26". For the sale price, very happy with it.

My winter bib is a little bit too warm for fall and spring weathers so I gambled on this one and it turns out just what I needed. Not the best quality fabric, but fits the bill and get the job done. The chamois is actually pretty good compared to a couple of other brands I own. They use Uranus with tech index of 2000, feels like memory foam to me, very comfortable. Sizing is true fit. Perfect for cool weather.
