Got mine! Fits great and materials are very nice. Design looks excellent. Surprised to see that they're made in China; for some reason I asked they were made in the US.

Meant to write 'thought' not 'asked' re: origin.

You must not have read the FAQ.

Maybe you were thinking of JLVelo who was one of the early considerations for the kit? They make theirs in the USA.

Got mine today, looks amazing and the fit is great. REALLY like the pad in the bibs, the leg's are a tiny bit too wide but I am a "climber type" so that's not surprising...

Oh, I forgot to mention the pad. I really like it.

It is simmilar to the pad Capo used, or may still use.

It's my favorite. :thumbup:

I definitely did not read the FAQ! I must have been thinking of JLVelo. The FAQ answers something else I wondered, too - I'm in California, so I thought it odd that I paid for international shipping. Makes sense now.

Pad does seem nice, but will need a long ride to test it out.

Just tried mine on. Jersey is great and the wind vest and arm warmers are too. I'm not a huge fan of bins generally but they are comfortable and fit well except for the leg cuffs being slightly flared out leaving a gap, it's not an issue once on the bike though as they ride up a bit. Gives room to 'grow' too.

I did try to take some pics with my phone but they didn't come out. I'm sure someone with a spouse on hand will do a better job.

djm, is that Tryvannstårnet in the background? I use to bike up there as a kid (and ski during the winter). Also did the route to Sognsvann from there on my MTB. Awesome riding and some great memories as a kid. :beerchug:

Looking at the vest picture, I wish I had added one of those to my cart. Looks sharp. Maybe if the online ordering opens up again I can get one.

Here you go. This should help answer for you.

There is a potential that the store gets re-opened for a while on a rolling production schedule. This means that once per month there is a deadline to get orders in by, they are produced, and so forth. If there is interest in having this an actual thing, please let me know and I can inquire about re-opening it.
