Another reviewer commented that the toe box on these shoes is too big; more accurately, they're made for a wider foot. I picked up a pair on Bonktown and I like them: they're comfortable, reasonably stiff, and well made.

A note on sizing: I typically wear a 9 to 9 1/2; with most shoes this translates to a 43 European, but with Northwave, the 42 was the best. (The sizing chart usually shown on Bonktown does in fact indicate a 42 corresponding to a 9 1/2.)

I ordered one of these hooded wool shirts to use as a base layer for cold-weather riding, but I wasn't sure about the sizing. First off, I have a 43" chest and I ordered the Large, which has a 40" chest according to Cutter's unique way of measuring. Spot on for me: form-fitting but not super tight.

On rides when it's in the mid-30s I've worn this under a long-sleeve jersey and a midweight jacket. I start out with the hood up over some earwarmers, and then midway through I might peel back the hood. If it's in the upper-40's you might get by with this and an insulated long-sleeve jersey. It's not super, super warm, but it allows you to layer nicely. And no scratchiness against the skin. I love it and just ordered two more at Bonktown prices.

I'm very satisfied with this mini light: It mounts easily on your seatpost; comes with two widths of spacers; battery installation is simple; it's compact and doesn't interfere at all with your legs; easy to put on and take off; and it's easy to operate with two flashing settings and one steady. For commuting I'd go with a larger light, but this one is perfect for when you're out training early or late, when you just might need that added safety margin.
