The description clearly states that it isn't compatible with calipers: "However, there is one notable change from the rim-brake version, and that is the brake track itself. The standard 303 Firecrest uses a high-abrasion brake track, and the disc brake wheels receive no such treatment. As such, even though there is a vertical sidewall, the 303 Firecrest disc wheels are not compatible with rim brakes."

...and

It's already done it's job. I just bought the damned thing less than 2 months ago and I smashed my Calabasa against the pavement today. The shell and foam buckled and delaminated but my head is in one piece!!!!

Thank you Kask for preventing additional loss of my already sorry IQ.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great cleat, my first clipless experience. Frankly, everyone psyched me out about falling with these. So much drama over nothing!

I became instantly acclimated.

Then again on my first trip I went over the Brooklyn Bridge on a Saturday morning with gobs of crowds of people...I must have had to clip in and out at least 100 time each way...So, I gotta a lot of practice done on my first day with them.

A flick of the ankle, without even thinking about it, and I'm out. If I spaz out in some mud or on ice I pop right out as well.

1000 miles since November.

Some people talk about popping out with these when pulling through the pedal upstroke...I don't think you'd ever have that problem if you're feet have been properly aligned via cleat position/fitting.

Does what they should and they're cheap.

And comfortable. The chamois is understated but definitely does the job, it's nice not to feel like I'm wearing a pair of Depends... I don't know why there are gripes here regarding construction, no one has offered up any description of damage/tears, etc.. The stitching looks more than adequate upon inspection.

A good fit for me in large. I'm 5'10" @ 205#, my thighs measure 23" around.

You can't do better for $45.00

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The material is stiff, and the wind blows right up yer knickers. Annoying to say the least; they make that "swishing," sound like bad 70's corduroys whilst one pedals as well. So, good well made shorts, I can see how they may appeal to some, but too bulky and cumbersome for my type of riding which is definitely more on the road side of things...

I love them...most excellent gloves, they do a superb job of laying down my knuckle hair and conserving at least 15 watts or so...

(Perfect fit in large for my 9" around hands...quite warm as well for a thin glove...I was out in 40~ today with some headwind, hands were cozy...)

Edit...I've reduced my rating to 2 stars because they've ripped at the stich between my fingers. I'm returning for an exchange and we'll see where it goes from there.

and...now one star. Hole wore through the palm, only 3000 miles on the gloves...

You have a sleestack ridge on top of yer head. I have Dinosaur dna or something and I got a bit of a ridge running down the centerline of my calabasa. I put the helmet on and it kinda teetered on my ridge no matter what...it felt irksome, bothered me...I think the strap system is real lightweight as well, as in...for this kind of money, meaning full retail, a more robust, rapid to adjust, strap system would be nice... the "comfort," pads are real cheapo as well....

Ridiculously comfortable, but it cracks!

Oh man...this sucks, because this is an amazingly comfortable saddle...Mine cracked, I've only put in 500 miles on this saddle.

I've attached a picture. I'm returning the saddle for a refund. I've inquired with Fizik to see if they know of this issue. I mean, right here on comp cyclist are three reviews all stating the same issue.


Really, it's too bad my ass has never been this happy. The comfort is sublime. excellent shock absorption; goes a long way towards mitigating what comes up through the post.

Far more comfortable than the many conventional offerings I've tried...

The flannel is very soft and the underlying cinching cuffs keep the wind out. A great shirt with a good base layer for 45 - 60 degree days. Not as warm as I expected but a cool shirt nevertheless. A bit steep at $67.00 though, hence the 3 stars... $45 would be a good deal. This is the kind of shirt your girlfriend will steal to sleep in so keep your eyes on it!

I ordered a pair in 10.75 US. I wear a 10.5 US. They run small, especially in the toe box. Right off the bat they were feeling uncomfortable so I'm just returning them. I recommend ordering at least a half size up. Other than that, a seemingly well made shoe. I like the latching action on the fastener. I went with some Lake MTB shoes from a different vendor.
