Familiarity: I've used it several times

the good news? the shorts are comfortable, the pad even better.
the bad news? the straps. they're too short, the material is too stiff, they fold into a sharp crease that bites into your shoulders.
should have returned these before i even tried riding with them but got optimistic. bad call. now i'm stuck with pricey shorts that i should have never bought in the first place.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

these do appear to be identical to the pads that came with the brakes. why then have they only lasted about half as long? i got maybe a year and 10,000km on the original pads. after almost 3,000km, the replacement pads are worn almost totally away. also, this may be pilot error (repairman error?), but no matter how i adjust the brakes, i don't seem to be able to eliminate the squealing. it didn't happen with the original pads, hence my confusion. i really liked the original brake pads and the brakes. not so much these replacement pads.

caveats: the brakes are on a fixed gear and i like to ride hills so the brakes get way more use than if they were on a bike with a freewheel.

i've only had these tights for a couple weeks and worn them three or four times. already the crotch is wearing and pilling. the leg zippers don't close - you pull them all the way down and they loosen off. disappointing really.

i got these to replace a pair of tights that had lasted over 20 years. it's unlikely these will last that long.
