Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Agree with prior review. Love the Brightness & multi-functions although I usually stick with only a couple as I ride mostly early am & daytime.
2 Straps so It should allow to be used on a Seat Stay too.
I've used on Seat post only of several bikes & have switched straps when a larger / aero shaped post is involved......strap is a bit longer than it needs to be but I have not cut. Does NOT move underway. Well made, easy re-charge. Keeps flashing - short, medium or long (century) rides.....never hurts to remember to shut off at stops even short rest stops

Had the Stand without the bag. Glad CC had it and now the Stand is easy to store & carry. The Material, Zippers, Handles and construction are high quality. I'm a recreational cyclist so I'm not loading or unloading frequently, throwing it around, traveling or storing in harsh conditions, so can't comment on long term durability. For my purposes, it's perfect.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 182 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

I've worn Giordana Bibs and Jerseys and prefer the brand. It's Italian which means you have to go up at least one size from USA/UK mfgs.
For example, I wear Med (race fit) in Rapha and I chose Large for this Jersey and it fits as I hoped - very close/Tight RACE Cut style. Yes, if you do not like a tight fitting jersey (took me awhile to get used to it & lose the weight so it looked right) then you might have to go up two sizes. I can feel the ventilation difference as soon as I start pedaling especially early in am or in shade. It really helps in triple digit heat index rides which in southern summer is common. I intentionally wore it last weekend for a Century in triple digits and it was the perfect choice. I am careful with the Fabric - as it looks & feels "delicate" but it has held up without any problems. The good news is that the rear pockets area has heavier / reinforced material that allows you to load up without any concern. Bottom Line - I would recommend and buy again.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Wheels are great for training and even long rides + look good. I have over 1,300 miles on them mostly in hot / humid conditions - I've swapped between Thru axle & QR both work well.
I like the Mavic tires for dry grip (set up Tubeless) - I avoid riding in the wet, comfort - I inflate to F 75-80 and +10 on rear - I average 180-185 pounds. Durability is my concern. I usually ride Continental 4000GP II happily but I started noticing little nicks / small cut(s) in Mavic rear tire. I decided to ride it in a Century this past weekend with the tires (not a good idea) and suffered two separate small punctures.......1st one sprayed sealant and following rider pointed it out. Limped thru ride by getting tire refilled at the remaining Rest Stops + one road side. Mavic sealant was not quick to seal but it did not deflate fully. My first time riding tubleless in a Century. Plan to mount Conti 5000tl for comparison next.
Update 9/11 - Attempted to mount the Contis yesterday & could not get the last 4" of the 2nd bead on - my older hands, thumbs + Tire Lever could not do it and I left them almost done. So my sore hands carried the Wheels into LBS and Tech got first one finished in 5 min & other 2x that - he did say Contis are not easy - maybe he was just trying to make me feel better. The Ksyrium wheels do not have a deep channel to help with the usual centering technique.
BTW - the rear Mavic tire was already pretty squared off in 1,300 miles which is not that unusual in my experience. I should have replaced before Event. Lesson Learned! Oh well. Looking Forward to riding new Contis for comparison to Mavics and all the Conti reviews.
They look GREAT on the Mavics

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I took a flyer on these Bibs because I saw a video on YT where the presenter had used their product - it was the higher level (Steel model) than these - so I decided to try - FYI one of my favorites Giordana Sahara (XL euro cut) are no longer made. Conditions Sunny, 85F, 60% +humidity. Rode 47 miles
I'll start with sizing - their chart suggests a Med but I went with a Large because of my bigger thighs - glad I did - no way the Med would fit.
Compression - as advertised, they are very close fitting
Chamois - Not that impressed vs Sahara - felt too thin under pressure & my crotch would probably vote NO at times. Would not wear them on upcoming Century.
One other item - taking a "wikileak" was not easy as front panel is high and compression fabric adds more resistance.
I like the look and will try them again maybe it's just getting used to different brand, we'll see.
As always with CC, easy to order & arrived when promised.
