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.

Di2 is fast and predictable. The brakes can feel a bit grabby but servo wave ensures that they never rub, which I love, especially for wheel changes in cross. Chain retention has proven to be great so far.

I will be moving to the 9170 levers when they are released for the larger paddles and flatter hood profile.

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.

Higher volume tires means we all need a bit more volume in our C02 canisters. Get the 20g and an inflater with a cut off valve (I use the Portland Design Works Shiny Object); you'll have plenty of air to blast the bead back on to the rim if it comes unseated and you're running tubeless.
