Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

very comfortable everywhere except right where the tongue meets your ankle at the top. They used a super stiff plastic there (the red part that says infinitio) that basically digs into the front part of your ankle the more you bend your foot. That's why I gave it 4 stars. I actually returned my pair because it was too uncomfortable. I went with the LG course air lite II.
Looks wise, to me it looks better from the sides than from the top, but that's personal.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Jersey looks great and I had high hopes but I just couldn't get comfortable in it. I went with a Medium according to the sizing chart and it was too tight in the chest and restrictive in the arms - almost like there wasn't enough stretch in the material (like a cheap 100% polyester jersey). I tried on a friend's large and it was too lose in areas. frustrating. I have a pretty average build I would think too (5'10", 155#, 31" waist).
My rating of 3 stars is because I was forced to leave a rating and that was listed as "Adequate for the job" and that seemed neutral enough.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used a couple insulated bottles and to tell the truth I can't tell the difference between them. My only complaints are
1) what I ordered didn't match what is in the picture. I ordered the "Slate" which I expected to be a nice red color, and instead what I received has a faded pinkish hue, along with a pattern on the bottle that isn't what is pictured (I will upload a community picture so you see what I mean).
2) the bottle diameter is slightly larger than my other camelback bottle. Not a big deal, but it is just large enough to make getting it in and out of my cage cumbersome.

save some $

$12 at the store, $9 here (on sale). not much else to it.
not bullet proof, and not made of paper thin rubber, so average flat protection.
my only gripe is that the 80mm stem is a full $2 more than the 60mm.

very breathable
4 5

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

They didn't have my size but I picked it up on sale for a friend who wears the XL. He swears by it in terms of breathability. You can see there is a lot of mesh fabric too so it makes sense. I can't comment on the fit, but the looks are good (in all black), and it is a good hot weather jersey.

Better options available

These adapters are easy to install and they get the job done. I installed a Shimano Dura Ace FC-9000 crankset (hollowtech II) into my specialized tarmac which has OSBB (which is essentially the same as PF30/BB30). My frame required one of the thicker spacers in order for the 39t chainring to clear the rear chainstay.
Was great for a couple rides, but then there was creaking. I talked to my Specialized guy and it turns out they make a part just for this sort of thing, and it is made of aluminum. WAY BETTER. super easy to install (tip: put them in the freezer first so they slide in easy to your bearings) and they fit perfectly without spacers and having ridden a few times there are no squeeks, AND they were cheaper.

maybe i was expecting more?

Got this in a 25mm and used it for a while. Initial impressions are that it does look larger than other manufacturers 25mm, but it also looked rounder (if that makes sense), so i was hoping it would give a better feel. And feel is the main reason I only give this tire 3 stars. I'm used to riding heavier duty Conti's (gatorskins or 4000s) and was hoping to use this as a race day tire, but
a) I didn't notice any difference in ride, and
b) only that the tire gets chewed up WAY faster than my conti's

CC had this on sale for only $30, and even at that price it just wasn't a wise investment.

Also, the tires I received were OEM, meaning they didn't come with any retail packaging. Not a big deal, but thought it should be mentioned for others.
