"It shrugs off drizzle and wind without a problem. Perfect for the UK unpredictable weather where one 4 hour ride can be Wet/Dry/Cold/Windy! Summer months I would still use this if it was going to drizzle, starting cool and not above 15 degrees. (Lets see if we have this heatwave they are on about) then it would be my waterproof in my back pocket. As it doesnt have tapped seams Full-on rain would be my waterproof jacket, but it is nowhere near a breathable as the gabba.
The vents help cool you down when on a climb, although it is very breathable. If you stop for a coffee you will notice a chill setting in. But once moving, its perfect.
The fit is slim, Im about a 39 chest and slim, went for a large. The fit is perfect for a slim race cut, without being too restrictive and allowing for a long sleeve under layer or less.
Would I buy another one, Yes definitely! Just wish it was £85 cheaper."
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit, highly water resistant, vents

"182 cm tall 72kg 32 waist. So I tried a large and medium. The large, legs were huge and the gripper did not touch my legs at all. The legs are also quite long. I wouldnt class myself as skinny, previously playing football.
The medium, a better fit in the leg but the gripper slips up your leg and isnt very comfortable. The pad is really large and thick, so I would imagine for all day riding they would be ideal, however you can tell the pad is there.
I suppose its personal preference, but I would rate these as worth the extra compared to say the castelli aeros. IMO just try them and see what you think."
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Bulky, Poor Fit

"A great package. The greaser is excellent and has everything you need to clean your bike with. A small cassette brush, the larger brush for cleaning the bike, and the small round brush for use on the chain and cassettes.
There is a hole in the lid of the bucket, but this is to store the long wheel cleaner.
The CD does work, but its best to open Microsoft PowerPoint first, then open the CD within PowerPoint.
Highly recommended kit."

"Due to the holes being half way up the cage, the bottom sits really low, so if you have two on your bike the bottle touch at the bottom. There is also little adjustment that can be made. One is ok, but other than that two is not much use."
Cons: Poor Fit

These Shimano Rotor Q-Rings feature a subtle yet efficient 10% ovality which can be user adjusted to take advantage of your full pedal stroke potential. Aero in design, they are available as outer rings (in black), in various sizes & 110 BCD fitment.
 

Chainring bolts

Do the shimano spider comparable chian rings come with fixing bolts or can you use the existing ones from your old chian rings?
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
If your remove the outer shimano chainring the bolts are built directly into it. You will need New chainring bolts which are inexpensive. You can mount a Q ring inner chainring to the outer round shimano chainring if that makes sense. I did this as a small test to begin with.

Can the Rotor outer chainring be used with a standard inner Dura Ace chainring.

The Rotor INpower 3D+ MAS power meter (ANT+ enabled) is the cleanest tool for gathering sophisticated power metrics whilst pedaling. With all the electronics housed in the spindle of this non-aero Crankset, the system is well protected from the elements.

Temperature range

After an awful experience this winter I will need something next year that will be a saint in wind and rain and cold. Regardless of the Castelli temp ratings (from past experience these don't apply to real world well) what can this be worn down to?
If it can be worn down to 0 then that's great!
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
I would wear this in 0 degress with a baselayer or two underneath. Its cold to start but once you get going it warms up quickly. If you do stop for a coffee the chill can descend quickly but this is because th jacket is so breathable.....which is a good thing.

Leg gripper detail?

I have noticed that on some Uno's the leg gripper is a series of silicone dots & on others it is hit & miss strips of silicone. Is one more up to date than the other? I only ask because I have found that the one with dots is also a bit tighter around the thigh.
Top 1000 Contributor
Top 1000 Contributor
I ended up with the strips, and yes the thigh is huge, the gripper didnt even touch my legs it was soo baggy. I went a size smaller, and the fit was better, but the gripper was uncomfortable.
