Haha, hook a brother up then!

Bit annoying I’ve just spent a grand on Assos in the last month... But new 2019 kit on the horizon :wink:

I’ll be your track / sprint ambassador. 1,800w has never looked so sexy!
All these watts you speak of, let us see a link to your BC page so we can see some results?

Only did two races last year. Won both. Got Cat3 and chilled.

Did two road bike TTs for fun and came 5th in both against a pretty decent field of 50+ riders.

Surely if you won them both so easily you should just crack straight on with getting your 1st or Elite? Especially if both of those wins had come by the 20th of January.

I probably could have, but it doesn’t interest me if I’m being totally honest. Picking up £20 and a load of sweaty men patting me on the back for winning a race doesn’t get my juices flowing.

I’ve been a world champion in powerlifting, doubt I’ll be that.

I much prefer going away on cycling holidays and enjoying the sport.

Racing is risky and I have a career / family to think about.

Send them for repair. 3 months no questions asked crash repair for all new items. We will try to repair anything which is less than two years old if you have an issue. We often repair things which are a lot older. If it is a product fault, we will put it right.
“Crash repair...?” I was wearing a brand new pair of the Campionissimo bibs for the first time when I crashed and busted my collarbone. Purchased retail at the LBS. Wasn’t really expecting a new pair of shorts but thought they might take pity on me given how much Assos stuff I had purchased. Nope. They were ripped in a crash. Certainly wasn’t a “no questions asked” scenario.
Ryan... re the bibs themselves, they’re a lighter, more compressive material and probably their snuggest fit. Very nice, but somewhat fragile (crashing excepted of course). If you get a deal on them fine, but I wouldn’t pay what I did again.

that one male model they’ve been using for every single picture for how many years now.
Which guy is that? ASSOS man hasn't been used for two years.
My mistake, I just clicked on the link to the jacket that @guyc posted above and up came not one but 4 clones of “ASSOS Man” modeling the jackets with the different colored left sleeves. Guess that must have been older.

Really? It’s been a couple years. And full disclosure after rereading your post... I purchased the shorts retail during a winter sale where they were 30% off full retail of about $459 (I know, still ouch). But as it was winter, it was well past the 3 months you state as the “no questions asked” zone before I first wore them. I might have pleaded my case a bit more if I even knew about the 3 month no questions asked policy, but I crashed, so my bad, and I didn’t push too hard. But after I faked crying and wiped a tear away they did allow me to buy a new pair at the same 30% discount that I received during the winter sale. I still shed another tear. I’m past it now.

My T-centos were hacked off by the ambulance crew, leaving me rather naked I might add. Will Assos cover those. Lol. 😂

Yeah good thanks. Been back at work 4 weeks now. Not really much pain either, so all good. Been riding about 200+km a week so far. Just off out now for a century.
Yes those deals are awesome. My last order of Assos stuff from Pushys is still boxed up. Got way to much now but I just can't resist a bargin.Image

Wore my Habu tights today for the first time. Little 95km to Windsor to go see some mates competing at the Red Bull Time Laps.

They were perfect for the 4° temps. So comfy too.

Also wore the Mille Evo jacket with just the 2.4 SkinFoil. Such a good buy and again worked perfectly in the temps.

I tore up my sturmprinz jacket and cento jersey underneath earlier this year from a low side crash down GMR here in Socal. Assos USA gave me 50% off for the replacement, after I sent them the pictures and proof of purchase. The service is :thumbup:

I sent my old jersey to performance clothing repair to be patched up with some lycra, it's now my beater jersey :mrgreen:
Unfortunately there is no way to salvage the Sturmprinz!
