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

Just initial reaction here, since I havent logged many miles on it. I switched from an Arione. I have several of them and decided to try the Antares, with the groove. This saddle much harder than my old Arione. But my Arione is 5 years old. So my question to the tribe: Is this saddle substantially harder? And will it break in? Thanks. More to follow!

Bottle cages aren’t very glamorous, but it’s nice when they do what are supposed to do. These...GRIP! Probably a little tighter than the Arundel cages I have on my Wilier, but they are still brand new. Bottom line, I’m not worried about rough roads ejecting my bottle. And they’re light.

Recent convert to both Conti's and 700 x 25, at the recommendation of Mike Nelson at CC. My bike came with Griplink/Powerlink tires which look skinnier than the reported 23 mm. Read many articles on the advantages of increasing tire size, so I did. A good friend is a long time Conti fan, so I jumped on these when they went on sale. Great tires so far. Yes, they look a bit big, but compared to my previous tires, I expected that. I like the nice round profile look. We were headed to New York for the GFNY and I wanted a durable tire that would be comfortable, and inspire confidence descending. It excelled at everything. There were dozens of flats, but not me! Rough roads didn't feel as bad, and I was less worried about downhill switchbacks (crashed on a tight turn a while back, a bit gun shy these days). I've ridden Vredesteins, Hutchisons, Vittorias, and Yksions. I relly am impressed with these. I'm a convert. No excessive wear so far after 500 miles. I'll post more after I wear them out!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought this to replace my old LG vest. This really is cooler weather vest. If you like to wear a light, mesh back vest in the 60s, this will be too warm. But in the 50s, this works well. The fabric is coated on the inside making it almost a rain vest. But due to all the zippered vents, it's not completely water proof. I keep the vents opened constantly, helping to shed moisture. It's well made. Not quite as stuffable as lighter vests, but ok. It is a little short in the front while standing, but once hunched over on a bike, it fits perfectly. Order one size larger, they run small.

This a great product from a great company. Not only carries different bottles, but I've stuffed shirts and things things into it for trips to the dry cleaners! Put it on my single speed. Next purchase is a flask "cage" for the other cage mount!

I have gone thru a bunch of these (Fuel Belt, Bento Box, etc) and this one works the best. A little lower profile, which keeps it from wobbling on the top tube. Material is heavy enough to keep the bag stiff. It will hold 4 Power Bars across the bottom, with 2 gel packs on top of them. Or various other combinations..... There is an ear bud port on the side, but really don't anticipate using it (not a fan of riding with ear buds in).
