Kermit, I've got two Climbers Jerseys & really like them. Unfortunately the fabric above the pockets is prone to damage and is easily clicked & pulled by sharp corners on bar and gel wrappers.

It's a little early in the season, however I am adding another Colnago to the stable.
This will be replacing my Ritchey Breakaway cross bike.
I'm excited to build it up!

Likely with the following since I have parts lying around and they are pretty cheap to replace:
Ultegra 6700 shifters, front derailler, rear derailleur
Brakes: FSA K-Force or TRP EuroX
Cranksset: undecided, but I like the compact ratio

So impressed by my white Giro Empires, treated myself to a black pair also. Just need to get some gold laces to match my SuperSix Black Inc. 2014. Really refreshing to lace up like the marathon runner I used to me.

Like djconnel, very pleased with the new POC Octal. Had two back to back 150km rides in Vienna this week where my Garmin 810 was reading 38°c (plus 100°f). Big frigging hills in Austria, so you need lots of ventilation going up and a sturdy lid on your head going down the other side. Mine weighed in at 186gm for a small.

Pair of Veloflex Criterium tubs(date stamped July 2012 :thumbup: ) to replace Vittoria Corsa Evo Cx's. Going to have to go back to valve extenders though :( Replacement valves were definitely a big plus on the Vittorias.

I have not had this issue with my Climbers Jersey but will be more aware when placing or removing sharp cornered items. Thanks for the heads up!

My climbers jerseys have been awful. The white fabric stains super easy and the mesh rips really easily when pinned. The cut is also a bit jacked. I would not buy these if my team wasn't sponsored by Castelli
