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

I had this jersey in my cart for a good two weeks before just caving and buying it. Initially I was hesitant, because it is definitely on the premium side price wise, but let me just say that it was worth it. I only have a few days so far with it, but plan on many more.

The fabric is silky soft and breathes really well. I love the contrasting coral detail at the collar and sleeves. This jersey stays down while I am riding too, without me having to load up the rear pockets (win!). A grippy band at the back helps it stick to my bib shorts.

According to MFF's size chart, I'm exactly an XS (which is the size that I purchased). That having been said, these jerseys are meant to fit like a race cut, using compression to keep everything in place. The arms are a little on the tight side, but I find that they are plenty comfortable when I am riding. The MFF website has measurements for all of their models, which was helpful when I was waffling back and forth between buying a S and XS. I'd purchase a small if I liked slightly looser fitting jerseys, but I wanted this one to be nice and snug.

My only qualm is that the water resistant pocket is just a little too small for a standard phone, but this problem probably resolves itself in the larger sizes. It's great for a card, chapstick, and some cash.

In short: buy it! You deserve to look this fly on your bike.

Picked these up (like everyone else) to use as a spare set for my CX bike. At the moment, I have my road slicks mounted to them - 700x25mm - so that I don't need to mess with my tubeless gravel tires each time I want to put in some pavement miles.

For the price, you can't beat these wheels: purchased a cassette and two rotors to further make my life easier and the total cost still came out just south of my rear Zipp wheel. It'll be nice having a spare set when CX season starts, if my husband doesn't steal them for his bike.... that's the unforeseen downside of having a wheelset that can use both a QR and 12/15 Thru-Axle!

As has been noted, the bzzz sound from the hubs isn't quite like a swarm of angry bees, but it's still noticeable. On my last ride, I found myself pleasantly surprised at how smooth they are. I like the fact that Mercury tries to manufacture as much of the wheels in the US as they can, too.

If you're on the fence or upgrading a set of wheels for the first time, just do it!

(I haven't tried messing with the tubeless setup on these wheels and probably won't bother, given the other reviewers' experiences.)

I purchased these bibs to replace an older pair of race-fit Castellis (with their Kiss chamois). Per other reviews, I upsized and went with a small instead of my usual XS (I find that these bibs are consistent across similar premium brands like Velocio and MFF). I probably could have pulled off an XS, but the S pair is really comfy and still offers a little bit of compression. Ive put 80 miles on them in the last few days and my rear is very happy.

Minor gripes: there are no fewer than 3 little scorpion badges on the pants: two on the front of the legs and one on the back. Also, the castelli name is spelled out in script all over the bibs, too. I get it, they're proud but I would have prefered a little less brand bragging.

Bonus: the ultra wide leg gripper band eliminates sausage legs!

For reference: 5'3, 125lbs 33" hips, 25" waist - went with S
