Mavic Comete Ultimate II. Absolutely incredible shoe. This is a sz. 11 that didn't fit, for sale in the classified section. My sz. 11.5 should hopefully be here next week :)

Are they too narrow so that they don't fit you?

They are too short. I tried to use the Mavic fit guide and it had me at a 10.5 which I knew was wrong, thought 11 would be close. I need an 11.5, which is the same size I wear in Spesh S-Works shoes. Width feels just fine. I can't say enough about how good they feel, at least on carpet, I am excited about the low stack and the uber stiffness.

:shock: Great Deal! I had one & loved it
Congrats! :beerchug:
Cheers! I've not read a bad review. Wasn't looking for a new frame but boredom whilst Facebook surfing are to blame.

What is the length and width of your feet and how long did it take you to get these shoes ordered in cause I know they dont stock wide at least in Canada?
Sorry I don't remember the measurements, but the shoes took a few days to get to the store. I'm in Perth at the moment and they have a warehouse in Melbourne or Sydney I think. Apparently their factory is in Wuhan...

Just received the new Assos Équipe RS Spring/Fall Jacket, or Aerojacket RS23 if you like.
Finally a garment for your average nordic summer that both fits really snug and has enough sleeve length for me, who's built out of sticks, and has broader shouldered than Steven Kruijswijk and arm length like a gibbon.

Yay!
Hello Kjetil, what temperature range do you think in this jacket? I do not know if to buy this jacket or the version with short sleeves and use arm warmers. Where I live the winter is 6-15 °C and I think this jacket is too much with Xbionic Energizer base layer.
You don´t stop riding when you get old, you get old when you stop riding.

10-18 C maybe? I haven't used mine outdoors yet. It's been just right with a ss Assos summer base layer at 16-17 C on an indoors athletic track.
Opting for the jacket or jersey version is mostly about versatility. Those sleeves do not give a lot of warmth.
At 6 C I'd wear an Assos Hashoogi/Mille GT Winter Jacket and an Assos winter base layer. If I was to start the day with the RS23 jacket in low temps like 6 C I'd use an Assos ss spring/fall base layer and put arm warmers and a gilet (the warm and cozy discontinued Falkenzahn or the somewhat lighter Spring/Fall Gilet) on top, and leg warmers with the Tiburu (or new RS23) shorts. Nice and roomy pockets on the RS23 jacket and jersey to stuff layers into as the day heats up.

Just picked up an XTR 11-40 cassette for my gravel bike. Trying to drop 300ish grams off the bike, to get it sub-9kg.

Insane deal popped up on BBB for this NOS 2018 CDale SS Evo HM Team Disc and I needed a commodity bike for work travel, so now this happened. I need a Save or Hylix post for it and will go to a longer stem and narrower bars - and different saddle - I have in the parts bins. Looking forward to riding it this weekend..
