I really like wool gear. I have several different pieces and have been pleased with the performance of evey one of them. I bought this jersey and so far have been pleased. I will say that although I have worn it by itself, I think it would be better as a base layer with a regular jersey on top. It has gone through the wash okay although it has balled up more than other wool I have. In the end I would recommend it if you can find it on sale.
I was looking for something other than a regular sweatband to basically serve they same purpose and figured that I would give this cap a try. It is awesome. It is a nice, lightweight material that wicks the sweat away. It fits good under my helmet and dries quickly. I like the looks of it when I don't have my helmet on so it basically fits the bill of what I was looking for perfectly.
Maybe it is just me, but these shorts are a horrible fit. They were way too baggy and looked horrible on. I sent them back and tried the Jett Raptor shorts which fit me great. I like the styling on these shorts and I have a couple of other pairs of Oakley shorts that fit okay so I don't know what is up with these. Anyway, I didn't like them and don't recommend them based on fit.
I really want to love these shorts because I like the low key style and PI usually makes pretty good stuff. These shorts are well made but the fit is suspect. I ordered a Large (I have a 34" waist) and they were HUGE. So I sent them back (thanks HucknRoll) and got the Mediums and they were so tight that I couldn't move well enough to ride. So, I figured that I would give it one more try and ordered another large and these fit okay. Still a tiny bit on the big side, but reasonable unlike the first pair. I have ridden these a couple of times now and they are okay. Not my favorites as they tend to bunch a little bit, but I think they will do fine for less aggressive riding.
Salsa skewers are the gold standard for aftermarket skewers. Not the lightest (at least the steel ones) but they are beautifully made and perform flawlessly. You really can't beat 'em.
These are great fitting gloves that offer good protection. They are lighter than my previous TLD gloves, but fit a litter better. They are definitely a summer weight glove and one of the best in that category
