The windproof panels on the front of the bibs do a very good job at insulating and protecting your legs from the elements BUT there is a light fleecy NON-windproof material on the back and therefore cold butt and cold rear quads. From 30 degrees and below you ll probably need base layer tights.
Excellent vest. Lightweight, sturdy, and complete wind protection. The pockets are deep and the contruction is quality. Don't spend anymore for a vest this is such a steal.
I live in Massachusetts so the winters are pretty intense. I searched the site for a thermal jersey and only Louis Garneau has long sleeve jerseys that are labeled as "thermal". Castelli's Warmer fabric is Castellis warmest fabric evidently and IS thermal. Under 40 degrees you'll need a windproof shell but this jersey performs very well at keeping you insulated. Don't jump up too many sizes because the thermal fabric needs to be in close contact with your skin. I'm 6'3 230lbs. and wear an XL.
These bib tights are pretty hefty, with thick softshell on the front protecting legs and the privates. I always wear an XL at least for all cycling clothes including Castelli, Campagnolo, and Zero RH and these were baggy around the thighs and waist in an XL, thus preventing the thermal fabric from warming my skin. I'm returning them for a large.
These covers kept my feet reasonably warm for an hour and a half to two hours in 30 degree weather. After that your feet get cold and stay cold. Very windproof yet they lack very good insulation. The fabric that covers underneath the toe ripped on both covers very soon after wearing them and left a small round hole.
The Blackburn Atom SL 3.0 works very adequately for basic computing. Installing it was a breeze and the instructions are easy to understand. The large display is easy to read on the road and the basic 2-button setup makes it easy to scroll through info and reset data.
any chance the green color of the motor twin six jersey will ever be back in stock?
