As with others, I find that Assos jerseys are all over the map on fit. My long sleeve jerseys, M fits great. Short sleeve version of same jersey was short—barely covering the bib. But I could live with it because it fit well everywhere else.

Not so with the Assos Competitive Cyclist SS Jersey Equipe. I should have returned it, but I thought maybe I could get used to it. Very disappointed. It's too tight in the chest AND arms.

Also the materiel is not what I expect from Assos. This just seems like a standard everyday jersey with the Assos name on it. Not the same quality as my other Assos jerseys, and at this price, it SHOULD be.

Although generally I like it, it has two problems for me.

1. The computer mount was WAY too far back to be of any use. Elsewhere I read that someone had reversed the mount. Not only does that negate the aerodynamics of the bottle, it STILL didn't work for me. I finally solved this problem by purchasing a universal computer mount from Profile Design, so now the Garmin sits just below the handgrips. Aside from the nosecone obscuring part of the bottom of my Edge 1000, I can now see my stats without getting out of aero position.

2. Having the straw at the very back means I have to tuck my chin way down to drink from it. This gave me TMJ-like symptoms during the ride and a sore neck the next day. I'm still working on a solution for this. For now I have to use my hand to bend the straw while I drink. Not acceptable. I wish there was a straw like the kids flexi-straws so I could bend the straw to the position I need.

I was tired of just plain old black bike shorts. I wanted something with a little more style, but without sacrificing functionality. I got it. I've had these for about 3 weeks and 400 miles, and so far, no complaints. The size indicated on these shorts are smaller than what you might expect, so if you are on the border between sizes, go up! I have a 32 waist and got the large. I'm glad I did because a medium would NOT have fit.
