I never said I had one set of winter kit! I have several but when you’re used to Assos winter tights at £150+ the cost really adds up when buying more stuff.
Don't commute in Assos?
It's too expensive to do that in! I moved down a couple of steps (or bought it all in end of season clearance sales. So half price or less.)

I think you should commute in ASSOS! Not least because I work for them. But also the repair / crash replacement policy.

Is there a "wear out because the use/wash ratio is way out of whack" replacement policy.

A summer of 5 days a week use/wash and they are only fit for the bin.
They might do two winters, but only as winter is shorter. And only as my bike has mudguards.

What’s about spinning the clothes in the washing machine? Do you use it that way ? If yes low, medium or high?

I've never worried about the washing machine but I do put bibs in a wash bag so that they don't get tangled on other things.

You're not supposed to spin them too much.

I do at 1600 though.... :noidea: I might be a little less precious about my cycling clothing though, by virtue of my job!
