Picked up a pair of Assos éC recoverySocks on Saturday. Rode 143 km in this weird northern murky "winter" yesterday, put them on afterwards and had them on until bedtime. Fantastic legs today. Now why haven't I tried compression socks before? Great product!

Those are Andrea Zamboni's legs, not mine.

Sorry to come across so harsh, but you should have done some more research, half link chains are well, rubbish... A regular chain costing half that would still provide longer life and better performance.

Kronos Alu stem bolt. claimed 18 g versus my current rusty steel 50 g bolt. Although my steel ride is no featherweight, it helps bring down the mass a bit. :thumbup:

indeedy. no brainer to update from my Gen I's at the price they were (sold the Gen I's for more than I paid for the Gen II's) with a cheeky 150g weight loss into the bargain.

Thanks for the advise as I was not aware of that :oops:
I mainly bought them for the looks as they look great. I can still ship them back to Wiggle for a refund 8)

Nothing tremendous, just one piece of puzzle :-) I have completed the Pro Vibe combo with this one (handlebar, stem, seatpost)
