"Like others I agree that the sizing chart is on the small side, but I have also struck that with Sugio which I also use.
The pad is excellent and in my eyes that is the most important part of the knicks, as that's where we sit for hours.
Used Sugio, Santini, and Odlo products, but Castelli wins hands down.

An optimum compound containing a variety of materials produces outstanding braking performance with minimum effort at the brake lever. Swissstop disc pads offer excellent performance in wet and dry conditions and are extremely durable.

"Been using these disc pads for several years and find them far better than XTR pads. They don't fade and are excellent in the wet."

"I have used 2 of these Bottom Brackets in a Scott RC Mountain Bike and both have had the same result. Lucky to last 4 months before the grinding of the cranks starts. I use Token cernamic in my other Scott Mountain Bike and they have lasted 12 months and still going strong.
I have also used Enduro cernamic wheel bearings in my DT Swiss 1450 wheels and these bearings have also given up the ghost. Looks like the balls just grind out the outer casings. Would not recommend.

Pros: Attractive
Cons: Expensive, Wears Out Easily

I'm Asian, 5'2" with a 38" chest. For the Odlo Evolution Light Short Sleeve Crew Neck Base Layer should I buy small or medium?

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/odlo-evolution-light-short-sleeve-crew-neck-base-layer/
At least a medium, they are a tight fit, depends how you like your fit to be.
