"my first pair of bib tights with a pad, instead of the usual shorts and bib tight very pleased have worn these down to -2 degrees c, they wash well, and so far the lettering shows no sign of coming off but I always follow the washing instructions and use a wash bag. Size wise they come up small I weigh 72 Kilos and 5' 9" tall and bought large but had to return for extra large.I found they keep you warm without overheating and knees seem particularly well protected, but obviously this very much depends on hard you are cycling."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality
Cons: size comes up small

good guards let down by brake bridge

"purchased this in may 2016 easy to fit to my road bike fitted with 25 mm tyres the 35 in the description refers to the width of the mudguard I think. they give good coverage and particularly with the mudflap front and rear u will be popular riding in a group.
However the one problem with them is the rear guard is held off of the tyre by a plastic bridge secured on the brake bridge as is standard with most full guards, unfortunately the the plastic bridge has worn the the guard so that now it rattles annoyingly. Previous versions of this had a meta l bridge that actually gripped the guard with the new version it is pushed onto the guard an you cannot increase the tightness as it is plastic. I have overcome the rattle by using gap filler as used on diy projects. But it is a shame that an otherwise excellent product is let down by this, otherwise I would have given it five stars"
Pros: Good Fit, Lightweight, Rugged
Cons: Wears Out Easily

Again... Navigation

Sorry guys but again navigation! Basically, I've looked at DC rainmaker's guide but I would like to know how many 'chunks' of the openstreet maps you can fit on the edge 520 (with enough space to store rides etc). Thanks

perhaps your looking at the wrong model as the 520 leans more towards strava segments not so mush for touring
