Looking for feedback on CSC bib shorts

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

I've got a friend who works for CSC and therefore gets discount on CSC sponsored cycling clothing. It works out that I'll get around a third off most stuff on their website.

Anyone got any experience of using their stuff?

Also, specialized '05 Pro bib shorts, any feedback?
the insert looks really comfy, pricey, but if they are both durable and compfy money well spend IMO.

Giordana makes CSC clothing. Their team stuff is great, it fits well and performs well. The insert leaves a little something to be desired compared to their other clothing, and it's definitely not the same one the team actually uses, but there's nothing wrong with them.

Keep in mind that they also make clothing for Liberty Seguros, Colavita/Sutter Home (american team), Panaria, Maia Milaneza, Carmichael Training Systems, and despite the nike logos, they make the Discovery team's clothing and all of the official Tour De France jerseys.

CSC uses Kappa and Craft in sportswear and Marlboro Classic in casual clothing. They used Giordana earlier.

Um... no? Take a look at the big ole Giordana logo on the upper right chest of ALL of their jerseys and prominantly displayed above the speedplay logo on the right leg of their shorts:

They've been riding Giordana clothing for a few years now. There is a regional CSC team that rides Assos clothing, but that is not the Professional CSC team that is currently riding in the tour.

Has anyone used the '05 Spec Pro bib shorts?

They are pricey $160, but they look really comfy...
