Made for the rigours of the Arenberg Forest, the toughest stretch of cobbles at Paris-Roubaix. This glove features maximum padding to protect your hands on the roughest of roads. A mesh back keeps your hand cool in the heat of competition.
"Even these gloves are like the castelli sizing (small). I ordered a pair that should have been very comfortable with lots of room and they only just fit. Go for one size larger is my advice. And what happened to the little "finger puller" tab things? Miss them - they are handy."
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight
Cons: Poor Fit

Castelli Free Aero Race Bib Shorts
Castelli have re-engineered every detail of the Free Aero Race Bib Shorts while keeping everything you love. It is now both more comfortable and more aerodynamic making what might be considered a flawless bib short.
"As always with Castelli - watch the sizing carefully. If you aren't sure (or haven't purchased before) go one size up at least on what they suggest. I am a 35" waist and the XXL was VERY snug (the size chart said XL would be fine with heaps of room). The next pair I am ordering are XXXL so that I can use them on days other than race day!"
"Shimano products are always good and this is no exception. just wish they were a little cheaper - but this is what you get for having the top of the line!"
Pros: High Quality

If I wanted to upgrade the wheels would that be possible and how would I do it?
I am looking to get a better set of clincher wheels (happy for a suggestion) but not sure if the current ones can be credited against the purchase if they are all ordered together?
