I've yet to try Assos clothing.

I'm currently very happy with Endura MT500 mtb shorts and jerseys. They are not cheap, but have outlasted a cheaper SPecialised pair of shorts and jersey.

Generally you do get a better quality when you pay more.

Werid that. You'd think people would by the best kit as they have the best bikes.

Their shorts with streching padding are really good.

I think you'll find most people on this site don't even HAVE a coach. ;)

and seeing as how I've been on teams with clothing sponsors for the last 6 years, I won't be riding Assos - except for their chamois cream. Personally, the best clothing I've used was custom Vermarc stuff...nice..and it fit me perfectly. We're riding Hincapie this year, and except for some sizing issues, it is also pretty nice stuff(but not AS nice).

Well, I really like my Lightweight team wear. By Sugoi. Nice colors and good fit. Fits also with wheels.... :D

And those Lightweight arm warmes fit nice to my club shirt as you can see:

I got a pair of Specalized BG pro bib shorts a couple of weeks ago.

Bloody expensive, £99 in the UK. I got them for £79.99

The pad is just so comfy.



Expensive, but a :thumbup: :thumbup: from me...

I like Assos as well. It's not only the good fit, but also how efficiently you can move in them. It's especially pronounced in their winter clothing compared to the other stuff I've had.

..and you are extreme angry after you've scratched the Assos in a crash...

I mostly buy pro team clothing, sometime from the last season, like the saecco bibs from cannondale, they are quite good and cheeper.

Think about the lightest part on your bike? Your brain! -Use it and do not buy any component, but the one which suits your riding style...
