"It's nice to see that the stickers are not in a place where they would get worn out.
6ft 75kg 30in waist - medium would be OK but the straps are very tight so had to re-order Large instead

"Great light set but the front light cover came off easily.
It's difficult to find a replacement, the only place that sells them does not have any in stock.
Probably best to seal the inside that's covered by the rubber cover with silicon as well.

With this superb offer, you get two boxes of Protein Plus (Mixed Berry) for the price of one. After intense training or gym sessions your muscles need to repair in order to grow and they need their "building block" of protein for this to happen.

OKOK's Questions
 
For 2015 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.
 

Does it have the tacky glue on stickers that peel off after a while?

Residues or colour differences from logos that peeled off?

Quite a lot reviewers claim that the Castelli logos peel off very quickly - in some cases after the first use.

If the logos peel off are there any residues, stains or colour differences perceptible where the logos have been?
the logos came off after about a year. The glue is coming off slowly with bits of the sticker. I recon another few months and they will be gone. I think it's partially because they are in place where the jersey is rubbing over them. They shouldn't have put them there.
The ones at the front look fine.
Fantastic bibs though, best on the market. I had so many good rides in them, the stickers peeling off doesn't bother me now.

Size (again)

Sorry to add to the size questions, but.....

Do you go on height or waist size?

I am 6ft 1" with a 31inch waist. Going on height, the size guide says I need large but going on the waist, I would need small?

I normally take a large in Castelli and ASOS bibs, but these obviously have shoulder straps, which isnt an issue here

Any suggestions?
I got small and it's perfect.

Is this bike stand sturdy enough to support bike with child seat (& child attached) ?

Need stand for getting child into seat rather than putting bike up against wall / car which ends up not being very secure

Stop counting laps. Let Garmin do the maths with Garmin Swim. It's the swimming watch designed for pool use that tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more.
 

Is Menu of Garmin Swim in polish language

My question is about Garmin Swim Watch, which I want to buy in wiggle shop
yes, but it only has western characters
It's not complicated, probably better stick to the English as SWOLF is the same in all languages.

Which size for skinny legs?

I'm 184cm tall with a thigh circumference (at about the spot where the hem sits) of 43cm. In the past I've had to return bibs with height-based sizing because they turned out to be loose around my thighs.

The size chart says I should wear size L. What is the circumference of the legs (at the hem) of the size L and size M bibs? Would an M be more suitable for my legs? Would an M lead to dangerous/unsightly/uncomfortable "separation"?
Go for M, or get Castelli if you are not fat.
