hey can i get this with the orca specific zero setback seatpost?
had a chance to compare these to some very light wool t-shirts on a recent backpack trip. temps were in the high 80's and we we're hauling too much stuff up a long way....
this shirt kept me totally dry, even on my back. in contast, the super light wool t-shirts were soaking wet below my pack.
my only complaint, and the reason for only 4 stars- this shirt started to pill where my pack was rubbing in the middle of my back.
these are pretty light pedals -150 gms for each pedal - and they have a neat cleat/adapter system for road shoes but i needed a lot of float for my knees and i was fooled by the float description- the release angle is 20 degrees-the float is only 6 degrees. would have tried them more but i couldn't get past the float issue. good price on bonktown- a real steal for a light pedal
it does have vents under the arms- but no zippers. uses flaps instead.
this is a very compressible light coat. no pockets for hands though.
i'm 6 feet and i fit in a regular, as far as the hood goes. the collar inside is located a bit too low for me though, but it doesn't get in my way
i'm going to get a second pair of these so i never have to ride in anything else. the first pair has served for 5+ years and is still like new- that's probably 150+ rides and machine washes in these. i use them when it's 40-60 degrees out (most of the mornings year round). completely comfortable on - not even aware of them. never cold in them, never hot, never sweaty.
i have tons of merino stuff- it's the best fabric unless it's really hot out. this is a nice shirt. got it for an unbelievable price on S/C. nice trim fit (i got a large - 175 lbs 6 feet). only thing not perfect is the thumbhole location, for me. my thumb is on the side of my hand, not the back where my ring finger is. but i don't even use that anyway. very nice finish on the shirt, and i like the color. i wear it as a single outerlayer.
i got two pairs (on sale)- light brown and dark brown- both size 45. i usually wear a 10.5. i use sole inserts in them. one is perfect, one is a bit too small. so there's some variation.....
they are pretty much my favorite shoe.
by the way - i get so many comments on these it's amazing (99% good).
