Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I saw this helmet on GCN and the guy said that it was really good for cold weather because you can l close the vent making it aerodynamic AND keep the wind out. So I bought the helmet. I always wear a size large in every helmet I've ever owned. When I tried it on, it would not go over my head. Darn! What the heck, right? I returned it. My LBS was surprised it would not fit because he said it was actually pretty roomy. He asked, "Did you open it up?" I asked, "What"? "Did you pull the adjuster knob down"? So, there's an adjustment knob assembly at the back of the helmet that you need to pull down and open up so that you can get it on your head. Duh-oh! When I pulled it down and opened to adjustment knob, it fit like a charm. The problem in that the first time I wore it, when I went over bumps, the air vent door rattled! It sounded like something in my front end was rattling - but it was the helmet door! The good news is, it's comfortable, fits well, looks pro, and gives you a ventilation option. The bad news: it rattles when you hit a bump.

Was a little disappointed in the fit. Along the chest, there's a band of fabric between upper chest and neck that fits oddly. Of course...it would be my body, but none of my other jerseys fit me this way. Weird thing is that the zipper is metal, but the zipper is plastic. Not sure about its potential longevity. well, with Competitive Cyclist's return policy, I will give it a chance... Maybe I'll like it more as I use it...

I know that everyone is different, and when it comes to cyclists, our differences are extraordinarily different. For me, this is the best chamois I've ever sat on. Period. It is a bit thicker than most, but it's so comfortable! If you don't mind a chamois that's on the ticket side, Todd is the one you want. As far as sizing goes, yes, the short ribs small. Smaller than the Castellis I usually wear. Order a size up. BTW, after I used these sorts a few times, I bought another one.

I purchased this jersey after having purchased it's matching bib short. I saw the short at a substantial discount and bought it for indoor training as you can never have too many unmatched bibs when you train a lot, right? Well, the shammy on those shorts is amazing, and the fabric was great. The gripper was also superb - wide but not biting. So, I figured, maybe I take a chance on the jeresy and make it a kit. Glad I did. Did I mention it also looks great?

It's great to have 19 tools, but if the shaft of the hex tool is too short to enable you to adjust your seat screws because the tool is so wide that there is insufficient clearance -- so that you'll need to do 1/4 turns instead of 1/2 or 3/4 turns -- you'll get frustrated (like I did), and wish you had a different multi-tool. In short, I would suggest a slimmer multi-tool which actually has tools that are USABLE! Great to have 19 tools...but better to have 6 or 9 that you can really USE!
