Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

Love the unique styling with the open back (makes for funky tan lines, however) and the grippy palms. However, the velcro strap and the plastic over the velcro attachment have come apart on both gloves and I've only been using them for about 2 months. Still functional but look kinda silly and I'm not a seamstress. I expect they will all fall apart as such. Bummer because I was ready to order another pair.

After my fitter told me, "YOU MUST GET NEW SHOES, Madam Ridiculously Wide Foot!" Well, alrighty then, new, and very expensive shoes, it shall be! After doing the research (and not being able to buy locally, sadly) I swooned over these shoes; wide AND kangaroo?! MUST HAVE!! They came in yesterday and, while the forefoot area is a fit like I've never felt before - so comfortable - that romance was quickly dispelled while realizing that the rear of my foot felt like it was in a vice grip! What the heck? Why would a wide shoe have such a narrow, tight heel cup! I just don't see any way to make these work, it hurts just putting them on, let alone walking to my bike 10 steps. I'm still wiping away the tears that have fallen on my return shipping label. GRRRR!! Back to the drawing board. Shi*.

I love these tights. They actually fit well but definitely smaller than most Castelli. I have a ton of Castelli kit because, unlike most Italian brands, they usually run true to American size. These guys fit more like mediums but still very comfortable. Waist on the women's is fairly low cut. The craftsmanship is awesome and I got an amazing deal on them. Might buy a second.

My first big money bibs and absolutely love them, no buyers remorse. The straps are comfortable and feel barely there, I have no trouble with the shorts staying up. I love the style of the leg with the wide band at the leg opening. Where these land on my waist is super comfy; no muffin top!! Can't wait for them to come on sale so I can get another.

there's plenty of room for layering but if it's cold enough to really layer, this isn't the right jacket, it's pretty thin. Gave me boob loaf in the front, flappy in the back. And the worst part, not a single pocket! Whyyy? Destroyed in my first wreck before I could return it... :(

What a fantastic investment, Kangaroo leather really is all that. I got the R1's about 6 weeks ago and have put at least 800 miles on them. No more hot spots or discomfort whatsoever. Took my feet a few rides to get used to them but it's pure love. Never did mold the insoles either. Love the retro, simple logo look too.

Was excited about getting this set of tires hopefully as a fair and less expensive replacement for Gatorskins. Nope. 10 miles out on the first ride with this rubber, tire is ruined with a nice slice across it. Stuck on the side of the road in August in Florida. Ergh. Probably could have happened with the GS but, with thousands of miles gone by on GS and no such problem, I'm not going to scrimp anymore. 10 whole miles, it's going back. Hopefully the front one won't be as tragic.
