Can this frame accommodate 28c tire width?

What are the sizing guidelines for these gloves?
If I have an Ultegra Di2 53-39 setup, can I use the DA 36T chainring to make my bike 53-36?
I bought the limited edition of the Gabba 2 Convertible Jacket which came in high viz yellow. I love the flexibility that a jacket with removable sleeves offers. I'm 6'2
I've used LG bib tights and I've tried on Castelli and Assos bib tights but these are the best fitting and warm bib tights I've tried. I like the zippered ankle openings as they're easier to pull on. The chamois is great and the straps aren't restrictive. I've ridden these in 28-45 degree temps and my legs (knees included) have stayed warm. Anything warmer and they might be too warm. Unlike the Castelli Sorpasso tights you don't have to treat these in a super gentle manner and don't feel like the seams are about to rip.
Are there any pictures of the inside of this saddle bag to show the separation divider?
I bought these along with the PI Pursuit bibs. I initially bought these in XXL based on the size chart on CC and they turned out to be too big. Then I went one size down to XL and they were still too big. In comparison I wear a medium in the PI Pursuit bibs. The chamois in these felt good but maybe a little too dense for some. I ended up with the PI Pursuit because of the snug fit and the really comfortable chamois as well as the light feeling material.
I like a lot of the twin six jersey designs and always wanted to see what they felt like. I can safely say that this jersey looks really good. However, the material isn't the best for summers in AR as I didn't feel like it would wick sweat away very well compared to my LG and Giordana jerseys. If I was looking for a fall/early Spring jersey I'd def consider this one.
I've tried Castelli Sorpasso bib tights, LG bib tights, Bontrager bib tights and these. And these are by far the best ones I've tried. First of all the stitching and materials are of high quality. While putting on the Castelli Sorpasso bib tights you have to be so careful and even then it feels like the material is ripping. Not so with these. Loosen the zippers at the ankles, pull up the tights and it's like putting on bib shorts. I've ridden these in high 30's through low 50's and remained comfortably warm throughout. The chamois is great and because of that I went ahead and bough FRC bib shorts as well. I'm 6'2" weigh 182 lbs and have a 33" waist and wear a Large size.
I wear size 11.5/45 Giro road shoes and per the size chart bought the XL. I had a tough time getting my foot with the shoes on through these and when I was able to (after much difficulty) I couldn't close the shoe covers as the covers were too small and the distance between the Velcro enclosures was too much to overcome without tearing these shoe covers. I used to own a pair of Gore Shoe Covers (http://www.competitivecyclist.com/gore-bike-wear-oxygen-overshoe?skidn=GBW3197-BK-S456&ti=UExQIENhdDpCaWtlIFNob2VzIENvdmVyczoxOjM6Y2NDYXQxMDAwMjc=) and they were fantastic. Warm, insulated, easy to put on and take off compared to the Castelli's. I chose not to exchange them out for the XXL because the material is so thin i have a hard time believing that they will keep my feet warm. I'm going to buy the Gore shoe covers again.
Is this jersey regular fit or European fit?
I'm 6'2" and weigh 176 lbs and this jersey fits me perfectly. I love how lightweight the material is and how comfortable it fits. It's not loose so there's no danger of flapping in the wind. Perfect for warm weather days. I like being visible so I got the White/Black/Bright Yellow.
I'm 6'2" and weigh 176 lbs and I usually wear a large in LG jerseys. However, this one was looser than I thought (I was fooled by the semi-pro in the name). Also, these are not full zip which is a must have for me.
I bought these for my dad who lives in China and works every day in a factory that isn't very well insulated or heated. It gets pretty cold up there and my dad needed long johns to wear around the house and at work. He asked me to get the ones from Walmart that he used to wear while he was in FL (lol) and I decided to get him those and a couple of these. Needless to say he threw away the Walmart ones in a couple of weeks and has asked me to buy another pair of the Smartwool bottom's.
I bought these for my mom to wear at home in China. They live in an apt with tiled floors and no central heating. It gets pretty cold there for 2-3 months a year. For comparison, she had me buy a pair of tops from Walmart as well. Within a week she was calling me and thanking me for these. She said the feel was awesome, the fit was just right and they kept her so much warmer and comfortable than the cotton crap that is sold at Walmart. She loved them so much I bought 3 more for her in different colors.
