Beautifully constructed and designed jersey. Not a hot weather material as I had hoped for but rather a bit heavier but breathable. Sizing is a little off vis a vis other jersey brands and even within the PI range. At 6' and 165-170 lbs the Large is a tad big at the chest, shoulders and waist. Length is fine.

After behaving for several years on odd sizing, Castelli have back-slide a bit with this one. Nice fabric and visual design yet the waist and pockets sag when loaded particularly with a vest or light rain jacket. Keeping it but will only load pockets lightly if at all.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have SciCon saddlebags on my other bikes and like the attachment design and they hold up well. Based on this positive experience over a number of years, I went ahead and purchased this for my new C-60. The aesthetics and appearance fit perfectly with the Italia Flag model C-60. The built in tire iron is a plus. However, because of the storage of this tool, the bag sits further below the seat than the older models I own. I prefer the bag to be a snug to the seat as possible.

So Far So Good But...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had been waiting for this "bullet- proof" Powertap hub with DT Swiss internals for sometime now as have been totally satisfied with all my previous and current DT Swiss hubs. Purchased in Oct., built it up with a Reynolds Assault 40 C/F rim and put approximately 3000 miles of hard riding on it in 3 months. Everything worked flawlessly until a screeching / grinding sound began under heavy torque - much like a BB issue. After servicing the Campy U/T BB cups and removing / cleaning the cassette to no avail, it was traced to a dirty / dry internal free-hub body that would not let the pawls engage sufficiently. After cleaning and lubing, it works perfectly again. I think DT Swiss is notorious for not lubing their F/H bodies sufficiently coming out of the factory I will of course, monitor its long-term performance.
April 2016 Update: I've had to replace the electronics ring twice. Last year (with about 10, 000 miles on the hub) the calibration went awry and Saris replaced the ring. Then within the last month I started to get a battery drain and it was replaced free of charge again. Other than these minor inconveniences, I like the hub (and BTW, the price keeps coming down!)
