Have you bought one of these? If so can you give me some idea of the sizing? Cheers.

Equivalent to Rapha core or classic size even though it’s rated as aero . Pretty stretchable but not the bibs

That spexcel think looks sooooo similar to Rapha... right down to the mesh between the rear pockets and the silicone hem.

Cant believe I've purchased so many heavy parts considering the amount of money I've spent making my bike lighter. All items are for an Everest challenge. ImageAssos SturmPrinz to keep me warm during the cold night. ImageDinner plate cassette to help.ImageHeavy bright lights to hopefully see any Roos. Lol.ImageRD extension. ImageImage

That's a lot of money spent for an Everest challenge. I'm also thinking about an Everest challenge this year. I already have a 11-40 cassette. I think that will be low enough with a 34 front. As for the GPS you can just recharge it while you take breaks. There's no need to get a bigger GPS. Normally with Everesting you would have a car close by with supplies. I assume your Everest attempt will be at least 6 months away since you are in the southern hemisphere?

I know, let's hope I don't fail. I'm riding with a mate and it will be his 9th with a lot of knowledge on equipment needed so I'm in good hands. Breaking wise 11 for 15-20mins, so not enough time for my 520. GPS was only $150 and will last 30hrs. Nope riding next Saturday. Going to be cold so the Jacket will be perfect, again another bargain at $230.

If it helps I did an Everest on a 520 with no problems as it can charge whilst it’s operating. I plugged an external battery pack in for a few reps and Velcro strapped it to the stem and it recharged fully. Have fun

Tried Castelli Aero race 5.1 jersey . S, my usual size is way too small for me . If ur on XL Castelli , I suspect Spexcel, L is good enough
