^^Excellent choice! Thermal bib shorts are a great piece of kit up north. I've got my two pairs back in use after the summer and they're every bit as good as I remembered. The strategically placed windproof patch 'in front' makes them perfect. With leg warmers you can go almost down to 0 degrees with them. They're expensive, but worth it.


Oh yes... they were perfect today, even though it was pretty warm I feel much more protected with them, yet not as warm and thick feeling as when I wear a bibtight. I'm guessing this will be my favourite bib in the months to come and in the spring.

nickmcg1971: Yep.. Will post an update once I've tried it. I'll wear it for around town riding on my hybrid or CX.

Addendum, nickmcg1971: WOW.. Fast delivery at least. Ordered 11:14 yesterday (London time) and today 08:00 (Oslo time) DHL called to ask when I would be available to them. Got the jacket and it's pretty nice. Not a race fit and large fit me pretty perfectly I'd say. A very nice casual jacket. I've always hated that some of my jackets are too short in the back as I ride a bike wherever I go. The Transfer jacket is lower in the back and covers a couple of cms of my jeans, ensuring I don't risk showing off my ass as I'm riding along :-)

Stumbled upon these wheels last week on local ebay. Apparently they were used by Team Saxo-Bank for Paris-Roubaix. The seller had gotten a hold of them as he's a mechanic for a local continental team who are given some equipment by Saxo once in a while.
I bought them with an intent to take them with me for my second trip to the cobbles bergs and paves next spring. Unfortunately the wide Dugast tubs won't work with my Easton fork so i'll have to get a new fork, not that bad as i haven't really liked the way it rides anyway.

Some pics:

I especially like the rebranded tubs and destickered hubs.

Nemesis rims on DT Swiss 240 hubs. Probably Comp spokes.

I can't give you a ride rapport as they won't fit my fork......

I would rather spend a fortune on a new fork to enable me to actually ride them :)

Gore Xenon 2 bib short for $130US.
i felt a little tingle high on my inner thigh mid ride yesterday. While showering post ride, there was SERIOUS damage done to the left of my taint.
there is a very small area, 2cm or less with loose threads that made hamburger out of my crotch.

Big cut in my veloflex corsa 22. Big enough to pinch my latex tubes. About 3500 miles on the pair. Ordered up a couple corsa 23s.
