Can you tell me about the fit of this jersey, as well as the full-zip Contest? I know they are slim fit, but sometimes there are differences within lines. I'd like a road jersey that is on the tight side, and these are at a good pricepoint. I have some of your older Motion jerseys, and if they fit like those I'd be happy. Thanks.

I bought the Large for a road bike, it is sturdy and well-made, and holds all the items indicated easily. I have my multi-tool and cell in the bottom, and levers, patch kit, money, ID, and 2 tubes in the top. I could probably slip in one or two smaller items without a problem. The pockets for the levers and patch kit are designed for Lezyne products (my Pedro levers wouldn't come close to fitting), so I ended up buying a pair of their Power Levers and the Smart Kit patches. Works well, although I haven't had occasion to use either yet (and hopefully won't for awhile). Lezyne makes good stuff, I have their Pressure Drive pump that has served me well for several thousand miles.

Thanks for the response below. You mention better visibility with the Xenon, which interests me. I was leaning toward the Contest because it is offered in Lemon. If this jacket was offered in Lemon it would be a slam-dunk for me, but it looks like White is the best I can do. I would likely purchase both the Oxygen and this jacket (in Lemon) if they were offered. Can you elaborate a bit more on the visibility of this jacket? Maybe this will work for me. Also, what is the weight of the Contest? I see the Xenon is nearly nothing.

I'd like a Gore-Tex rain jacket in high-vis yellow or equivalent (black rain jackets??). Packability and a slim fit would also be a plus. I have tried both the Oxygen and Countdown in my typical GBW size Large. I am 5'8", 160# 40" chest. I would probably go with the Oxygen, but Orange is as close as you offer to high-vis. The Countdown seemed terrific but the cut was very generous. It seems my only option would be to try the Countdown in size Medium. Is my thinking correct? Is it unusual to jump sizes to get a certain fit? Thanks for any feedback.

I see many questions about the fit of this jacket, so let me provide some data for you. I am 5'8", 160#, 40" chest, and normally wear Large in GBW. The Oxygen in Large fits me perfectly. It is form-fitting, as expected, but not uncomfortable. I can get a baselayer and longsleeve jersey underneath just fine, but if I wanted more I might be looking at a size up. The tail is quite long, covering my entire posterior. Front is short, just to the waist, but in the riding position this is all perfect.

This jacket is Slim Fit according to the GBW website, but I see suggestions that it is tighter fitting than other jackets with this profile. It is called a "racing fit" in the GBW description. Is this a tighter-fitting version of the Slim Fit? I recently tried on a Countdown Jacket (also Slim Fit) and found that to have a pretty generous cut for me (in my usual size L). I'm thinking this one won't be quite as loose.

I've been riding for 3+ years, and finally I decided to get a proper workstand for maintenance and cleaning. The Feedback Sports repair stands have many + reviews so it was an easy decision. It is very solid and well-made. About 5 minutes after I opened the box I had it set up and mounted my bike in the vise. Makes all maintenance tasks much easier. The jaws slide in graduated amounts for closure (kind of like snugging up a zip tie) and pop open using a release button. Much easier than twisting a dial or something similar. Also, the vertical range of the workstand allows you to raise or lower the bike so that you can get easy access to all parts of the bike. No need to hunch over to work on the pedals, etc. Great workstand.
