ND4SPD-how comfortable are those Castelli gloves?

Does it make a difference, good or bad, that they do not have a velcro strap to adjust the fit around the wrist?

IMO velcro at the wrist is uneccessary with the fabrics used nowadays. They're very stretchy (and good for you love life too). Velcro is old school, and can of course be CAF:

I like your wallet, northwestern!

ImageSpecialized expander by Matt Cotterill, on Flickr

Specialized headset expander to replace the garbage thing that came with my Exploro, continually slips no matter what I do with it.

As a bonus this has a nice thin lip which should help me to lose the chimney above the stem for a cleaner look.

28g on my kitchen scales, so 10g loss too.

Off to pick up another parcel later with a new bottle of Stans, a pair of 35mm GK slicks and a pair of Zee cages.

I was looking for gloves that have the most padding, so for me, they are comfortable. If you don't like padded gloves, do not buy them.

Pros - no velcro, they are stretchy, but of course, you must buy the right size, so it is better that you try different sizes before buying...

Cons - when your hands are sweaty and swollen, it takes some effort to take them off...

Ordered Look 785 Huez RS Proteam Black M frameset from the local Look distributor.
Received a box labelled "FRAMESET 785 HUEZ PROTEAM BLACK GLOSSY".
There is no mention of RS anywhere on the frame.
Trying the serial number on the warranty registration website shows:
785 HUEZ PROTEAM BLACK GLOSSY M 201
Model : CADRE 785
Color : PROTEAM BLACK
Size : M
ImageImage

Is it RS or standard? (I couldn't find a non-RS frameset to buy anywhere)
I've already contacted the shop and would ask Look directly, but the last question I asked (about tyre clearance) they redirected to the local distributor :roll:
