Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've ridden the conti 4000 series for quite a long time now. I've tried some other tires but have always come back, they are/were a great tire. I've only put a few hundred miles on the new 5000's and so far I do feel a difference, although very small. Very smooth ride for a clincher, as always, but super nice on the new version. Protection has been excellent but we'll see what a summer of riding brings. I'd expect them to be great, I expect a lot from conti now, they've set the bar high.

My main complaint with droppers since they've been out is reliability. When they work it's great, but far to often they don't work, or don't work right. I have the PRO (Shimano) on two bikes now and have nothing but great luck with them. The provided lever is "ok" but prefer the wolf tooth to go with it. Actuation is smooth, and everything on them has just worked flawlessly. Recommended!

Castelli makes my favorite cooler weather socks. There are other warm socks out there but I think Castelli makes them more comfortable than any I've tried. Have owned several of their cool weather socks now and the Quindici live up to what I expect from them.

good fit and feel but I had to return to get the right fit. I am 5'7" 131lbs and bout an S but it was somewhat baggy at the waist and was causing drag even when cinched with draw string. Provides just a little flotation so a little more of a wetsuit feel for training. I like it a little better than a jammer for that fact. It it neoprene and about as thick as a wet suit so keep that in mind if you think that would be to hot for you in a pool.

Has the typical PI fit, not skin tight but very comfortable. I know that type of sizing suits some and not others. Great quality as always from Pearl and feel to material is very nice. I use it more for training and not racing as I prefer more skin tight aero fit but would still recommend as a well done, comfortable, well fitting piece.
