But they went out of stock...

These are amazing. Warm, well stitched, and I got them on a crazy good deal. Merino is merino, as long as it stays together. I've worn these a bit around the house and they're holding up well.

I got the small/medium and they fit my size 42 foot just fine...odd, but keep that in mind if you want a slimmer fit on the cuff.

I was most impressed by the pretty lights on this junction box. When I switch syncro shift modes the green and red lights flash simultaneously and no matter the temperature or time of year I can't help but feel a bit of Christmas cheer.

The actual review: It installs easily with the y split root, allows you to perform adjustments and change syncro shift modes and provides a convenient charging port.

When I'm really anaerobic and developing the thick film of nastiness in my mouth after hours in the saddle the last thing I want to do is wash it all down with a salty, strong flavor. The flavors of this sports drink mask the insane saltiness well and allow the body to cope with extreme demands.

I'm a pretty skinny guy and if I consume this on the wrong day/too late in the process it can make it even worse. If I consume it at the right time it is a lifesaver.

These work great with Shimano calipers as intended; the regular Centerline and Centerline X do fine as well, but I experienced a catching sensation with these rotors and SRAM Force calipers, presumably due to the larger pad area grabbing the rotor arms each revolution. This contributed to some accelerated pad wear and imprecise braking.

Though you'll see plenty of people running the setup, I do not recommend it. There are plenty of other combinations you can ride that won't wear your pads unnecessarily fast.

I purchased the Youngrider jersey but this has a similar cut. Compared to my Equipe jersey I find the sleeves to be a bit looser, as well as the upper bit of the torso and shoulders. The rest of the jersey fits about the same. I personally prefer as few wrinkles as possible so I'll stick with the Equipe fit for myself, but both of these jerseys, as previous reviews have suggested, will feel incredibly natural and form fitting when you lean down into the cycling position. At 40+mph I can't feel a single bellow of fabric flapping against my skin; a wonderful feeling.

With wider road and mtb tires now de rigeur, it makes way more sense to have 20g cartridges as standard. 16g gets you home, 20g gives you plenty to blast the beads back on to your tubeless setup should it come unseated in the process.

The first thing I noticed about this strap was how the front fabric attached to the electrodes was a bit stiffer. Once I was out riding I didn't notice much, but it is there; I may end up just getting the softer Garmin strap.

Errrr, second update: Went out for maybe my 10th-15th ride with this strap and it just does not work. Tried disconnecting and reconnecting the sensor as well as trying a new battery. Save your money and time and buy a Garmin strap that will work for years. I've seriously owned more of these straps than I can count and not a single one has ever done this on me, much less this early on in the process.
