Allen's Bio

Native of the Western States, suffering on the East Coast for want of good rock and good snow. Fortunately I've found road cycling.

Got this from CL for a steal. My head measures 58 cm and the large fits well. I like the adjustment in back, and the chin strap is easy to manage. Overall a very good fit. Helmet feels light and doesn't slosh around on my head. I can't tell if I'm more aero or not, but I like to think I am.

First the good: good looking kit and pretty good value for money for an entry level set. The jersey/bib/bag combo is almost too cheap to pass up, and the sizing is accurate, I usually wear a large (in non-Italian stuff) and the large fit fine. The downside for me is that the chamois isn't a high level one. It's better than nothing, but it's not a high-quality pad. Plus the whole kit is made in China. If you're a big BMC fan or looking for a good entry level setup, this kit has your name all over it. If you're doing longer rides and need a chamois that's comfortable for 40-50 miles and a little more performance from your jersey, this may not be your bag, baby.

I was looking for a bib to wear for summer bike commuting. This is exactly what I was hoping it would be. The fabric is lightweight and stays cool, the fit is great, no tugging at the shoulders and the chamois is thick without being too beefy - plenty of support for long rides (30+ miles). I'm 6'0'' and 180, 34" waist and the L fits really well. Glad I got these, even though they're a bit pricey.

Just wore this in 60 degree weather for a quick run. It vents well, the fabric is great for a next-to-skin base layer, although I wore it by itself and it was perfect for the temp. I'm 6'0" and 185, I ordered the medium hoping for a not-too-tight but slimmer fit and that's exactly what I got.

I love these gloves, no question. They breathe well and I've been using mine in temps from 45 to 80 and loving them. The other day I headed out with temps in the high 30s and these were a little chilly until the sun came up. If you're in cold weather for long periods of time, you might want a heavier weight glove, my hands were pretty cold for the first 10 miles or so, but if you're in 45 degree weather or better, these can't be beat.
