Are these supposed to not fit as snug as regular bib tights? I ordered a pair in L (which is what I've ordered prior Craft shorts in) and there is space in the leg and knee. The photo on the site also looks like it is meant to be a bit looser.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I replaced my stock Seven aluminum bars with these. Initially, I wasn't sure that the 46cm would be correct (I usually ride a 44), but after riding on them for several months, I can say that it is a perfect fit, and I love how the drops curve outward by about 1cm on each side. It makes for a very comfortable and easy to ride drop position. Highly recommended!

Works as advertised--comfy

I replaced an aluminum Deda seatpost with this one. The post has an asymmetrical carbon layup (see photo) that creates a smooth shock absorbing characteristic without robbing you of power. I use this post on my Seven cross bike for my daily commute (35 miles). Truly sensational piece of gear.

Protective and warm, but not too warm.

The cut of this jersey is great--very comfortable and I love the fact that the rear flap is a bit longer to cover your butt in foul weather. Perfect for crisp, cold, and damp fall days when coupled with some arm warmers. This has been one of my favorite pieces of equipment, until today when I crashed while sprinting at well above 20 mph. I landed on my back and slid a long way. The jersey, although damaged, did a great job of protecting my skin (see attached). I walked away with a couple of scrapes and a slight concussion, and will be purchasing another one of these.

I bought these to replace an older pair of Sidi Genius 5 shoes. Although I had the "mega" width in the Sidi, I found that the standard Mavic fit me just fine, possibly due to the design that wraps the foot rather than pinching (similar to the old 3 buckle Raichle ski boots or the modern Full Tilt). The lining also forms to your foot. I found that for the first 20 miles or so they were a bit tight, but by mile 50 they seemed to be all set.

Power transfer on these shoes feels light years better than my older Sidis, though to be fair the Sidis had much more wear. I'm using these with speedplay pedals, and I think that the thinner sole of these shoes helps put the foot closer to the axle than most other shoes. Due to the curvature of the sole, you'll need to use shims for the speedplay base plate, or if you have the v.2 cleats, use the #6 snap in shims.
