Set out in the morning at 36F. Fingers got a little cold, but when it warmed up a few degrees, and for the entire rest of the ride, the gloves were perfect. I never felt too hot or clammy. Very happy with them. My favorite aspect of these gloves is the fantastic gauntlet that perfectly covers sleeve or arm warmer.

For me, these knickers are not warm enough for temps below mid 40's. The fabric is fleecy inside, but without windstopper or some other wind bloc material I found my knees getting cold and uncomfortable (went out and bought some embro!). Above mid 40's I think I will be wearing these quite a bit. As with all cycling shorts, you do get better comfort and performance as you spend more money. For this purchase, I just wanted to spend a moderate sum and the sale price was a good value. The chamois is OK, but not as good as my top end shorts (Castelli and Assos).

First pair of gloves with no padding. Wow! They are so comfortable. I immediately ordered a second pair! Somehow the glove extending a little down the wrist is just really comfortable for me...I immediately loved these. I usually wear a Large glove, and I bought a Large. It seemed a little small at first, but that was just the opening that has no velcro closure (I hate those velco closures). The Large is a perfect fit.

I already had the little Park chain checker tool, which is easy enough to use, but I was never really certain if it was telling me the true story of chain wear. The Pedros tool was on sale so I gave it a try. Yes, it is better! It is a well designed tool and gives accurate readings easily. Read the review in Velonews. I'm not totally sure why this tool is better, to tell the truth, but I'm not taking any chances to let a worn out chain wear down the precious cogs on my Dura Ace cassette.

My new favorite socks. The L/XL fit my 10.5 feet perfectly. Fabric feels soft to the skin. They are light and airy - perfect for summer or any non-cold day. They look very sharp too!

Long term update...Love these tires
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

9/6/16: Finally got a flat on the back tire after 3800 miles. It was not a puncture, but rather a blow out of the sidewall. I was kind of experimenting to see how long it would really last. The tread was basically worn flat and smooth, so next time I will just put on a new tire at around 3500 miles. By the way, the front tire STILL has tread after 4000 miles and it is still going strong. I now inflate to about 90 in the front, and 95 in the rear. Seems perfect for my weight and the ride is smooth and sure.
Original review:I just built up a new bike and decided to go with Bora One 35 tubular wheels and mounted the Pave tires. First time on tubulars in many, many years. I now have 1000 miles on the bike, wheels and tires. No flats so far! The tires ride great, even when the road is rough or there is some dirt, sand or gravel on the road. I weigh 155 and have been pumping to 110 rear and 105 front, but I'm thinking I should start trying some lower pressures. My Pave's are 25C. At first, I did not like the green stripes, but I love them now. So many people have commented on how cool they look - totally unexpected.

I bought a medium and a large, because it's hard to determine sizing on Castelli sometimes. Kept the medium. I'm 5-8 and 160 lbs. I do like my jerseys to fit snug. I've only used once but found this jersey to be very comfortable. The collar is totally comfy for chilly rides - so soft and wraps just right. The windstopper front worked better than I thought.

This Castelli long sleeve jersey is great. The sleeves are the right length, neither too long or short. The weight is nice and the fabric soft. It's not fleecy inside like you would want for a very-cold weather garment. Without a base layer, I would be comfortable in this jersey up to the mid-60's. With sleeveless or sleeved based layer, I have been comfortable down to mid forties. Below that something warmer is needed, at least for me. I am very glad I bought this long sleeve jersey.
