Theres good news but Lets get the bad news out of the way first. I'm deducting 1 star for the weird fit of this jersey and 1 star because Castelli seems to be famous for its inconsistency in sizing. This Got returned for being too tight across the chest and armpits. However, if you're not a barrel chested, 5'11" man-ape, this may fit you well. Sleeves are a bit long but I'd prefer that to being too short. Otherwise material is great and regulates temps well. I have a similar jersey that I've worn in cold weather down to 40 degrees and warm weather into the high 70's. Not once did I feel too cold or too overheated. Too bad they can't get the cut right for us Neanderthals.

Wait. Is that even a word? Who cares... I bought this thing hoping my oddly shaped torso could be manipulated into this thing and the resulting profile might be somewhat less than repulsive to members of the opposite sex. Guess what? It worked. I got the XXL cause I sport a 45 in chest. I know. Right? Who has a 45 inch chest? This guy. So the thing looks awesome and the ladies like it. It feels great to ride in and the temperature regulation was excellent in variable conditions. Hot, direct sun, then clouds and rain, then sun again - all in one ride! Temps were in the low 40s and climbed into the 70s and I never felt cold or over heated. Only 1 drawback, the material does not hold up well. (Read; This is not meant for MTB people who tend to wear packs on extended rides.) I did and the pack straps rubbed the material and left some marks. Slight as they are, I was disappointed this happened after only one ride. If they had another one in my size, I'd buy it again.

Forgive my poor English. I'm from Los Angeles. So you're looking for information regarding the fit and feel of this hat? First, this is not cut like a traditional flexfit baseball cap. It's more on the cyclist side of headwear, cut slightly lower so it sits lower on your head. The hat is high quality. Materials feel good, look good and the fit of the L/XL is perfect for my overblown ego and self important sized head. I dig it. I'm willing to bet you will, too.

What's not to love? These shorts are a roomy fit and include a high quality chamois. There's belt loops for those so inclined and there is an elastic band so you don't have to do the belt thing. Read the sizing chart before you order. If you're a 34 waist, that's a large in Gore Bike Wear. There are several choices of MTB shorts in this price range. These shorts are high quality and should last a few seasons. Some of the others in this range won't last the summer. Bummer! While I think these are great, Gore also makes a short called Freeride which I highly recommend. They cost a bit more but they're my #1 favorite. These are a close second.

Although described in many ways and useful for many purposes, the most extraordinary thing that you can do with this is place on top of your head. It works exceptionally well to keep the sun off. I use it to cover an ever expanding bald spot but that's a story for another novel. Place this hat in your shopping cart for a chance at immortality.

I will admit I was luke warm on the powder blue color but then I realized that it looked good with my gray hair and the word crank splayed across my chest is warning for all who approach from the front. The racing stripe down the back says I'm going somewhere... fast but chics dig the soft blue tone and figure my personal crankiness is just part of growing old. This jersey looks official on the trail, on the tandem or gawd forbid, the chain gang road bike crew. Don't backpedal now. Be the first on your block to impress the ladies with your riding skills and rugged good looks with a shirt that lets people know who you from a distance.

Yeah, it's orange or what Twin Six calls red. When I placed my order, Huck N Roll didn't have a photo available of this product. So I was kinda hoping for Black. After it arrived, I thought I'd give it a go but I couldnt get past the color and returned it. The jersey runs a little small. I usually wear an XL but a XXL works best in Twin Six jerseys. Huck N Roll was super easy to deal with and I swapped this jersey for another one from Twin Six.

That's what my wife said when she saw the price of these shorts. Later, when I finished moving my stuff into the garage, I thought she might have a point. But just 2 days later these shorts showed up and I feel vindicated for my purchase decision. These are the most comfortable bike shorts I've ever owned. The liner is a strong, supportive material that breathes well. The chamois is comfortable for all day rides and the outer shorts, while lacking ample pockets, have vents that keep you cool even in sunny southern California, where temps can climb into triple digits in the summer months. I think these were worth every penny I spent. My only concern is how my wife will react when I order a second pair...

Sure, you can buy this jersey because it looks cool and the colors are good for high visibility in urban environs. Or you can wear it to impress chicks and swear it's official gear for your official bike rally but I bought this so I can be spotted from the chopper when my 29er and I bomb down trails in remote regions of SoCal bike trails. Yeah, it's THAT visible. It's a tight cut so get your size right before you order. I can get away with a large T-shirt and most jerseys in XL but this fit me best in XXL.
