Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these every day for hours at a time. There isn't overpowering bass like with some powered model headphones (in line amp that uses a battery), but the quality of sound is 2nd to none in this price range. Every day I'm surprised at how good music sounds through them and I use these as a control when comparing production value of albums. I don't know how they would hold up to DJing abuse but I take care of my equipment and these have no issues (not to mention SK's lifetime warranty). The ear cups are made with some sort of soft memory-type foam that doesn't cause that hathead type pain that comes with iPod earbuds after 30 min of use. I've worn these for 4+ hours at a time and I forget I even have them on. I wouldn't recommend them if you're looking for headphones that block out sound and you're not going to get real noise cancellation unless you go with active/powered headphones. They dominate from hardcore to hiphop.

Just rode these this morning and I agree with the other reviewers that the straps are wide but I got over it real quick. My favorite bibs are Gore in size M, and I def needed a L in these. I really like the lack of elastic at the leg openings. It gives the bibs a much nicer feel and fit. Not restrictive yet still form fitting. Only issue I have is the front is cut a little short, but outside of holding my arms straight up in the air while standing it is not an issue. Def get the matching navy script castelli jersey too.

First of all, like others have stated, the sizing is borderline youth based. I wear a Medium in practically every brand and I almost needed the jaws of life to get this off my hand. The "handy" pull tabs are a great design idea but I feared for their lives in helping to get the glove off. The craftsmanship is satisfactory at best. The seams and stitching would be irritating and the material is on par with a $20 retail glove from Performance. For a $50 pair of gloves you'd expect great padding and design but this glove comes up short in all areas. Not what I expected from a Castelli product.

pump I have ever used. I know that I shouldn't expect much out of a hand pump but it takes about 3 solid minutes to get about 25psi. A friend of mine was practically stranded with this pump and that reminded me to write a review to hopefully save someone else from the same situation. There are so many other hand pumps that are the same price or just a little more that will work much better. I got ahold of a Serfas LS-50 and it worked infinitely better than this. I wish I could give this pump 0 stars.

These boots from Rome are listed as a Medium flex. I feel that they're more Medium/Soft. The forward lean is Soft but the lateral movement is Medium. The liners are extremely comfortable due to the soft fabric lining the inside and the padding that surrounds the Achilles tendon. The boot's shell is constructed well and show no wear after 20 days on the hill. The greatest thing about these boots is they feel like big tennis shoes even during the first time wearing them. So comfortable. I gave them a 4/5 because the design on the lacing system makes it a little hard to loosen the laces on the top of your foot after a day of riding. If there were half points it would get a 4.5.
