It’s supposed to be a big step forward in tech, really looking forward to putting some miles on it

I've got one of these in XL (like all Castelli fits smaller) that I should move on as it doesn't fit.

Worn for one sportive & washed once so as new condition, it's essentially a long sleeve Gabba on top with Castelli's top of the line Sorpasso bib tights on the bottom.

PM if interested, great bit of kit just sadly doesn't fit.

Have a look at Sportful, read somewhere it's Castelli's parent company and made in the same factory. I've got a few bits and rate it, wiggle has some good deals on Sportful bib tights at the moment.

Getting back into cycling, gear bought. How much of a prick will I look like on my shitty bike?

In reality no one gives a fuck what your're wearing to cycle in but those shirts were quite obviously sourced from the bottom of the bargain bin.

Ordered these for £38 and seem to fit well. I'll use them tomorrow on a ride.

Finally built. Needs finishing tweaks but almost there. Needs carbon rims but not laying out another grand yet.
