 Liquigas Cannondale Standard Bib Short - 2012
Liquigas Cannondale Standard Bib Short - 2012
Summer weight bib shorts with the Liquigas Cannondale UCI Pro tour graphics of the 2012 season.
 

See below

I wish to order the RT82 shimano shoes. I already have some shimano road shoes, about 1 year old which are size 43. Can I assume that the shoe sizes stay constant ie I order the new shoes in size 43 and they will fit?

Re the liquigas cannondale standard bib short, there is no sizing chart to relate the sizes ie L,XL etc to waist measurements. Can you direct me to a sizing chart thanks.
I have a large pair of these shorts and they fit me well, I am slim build 6'1" and about 13 stone with 34 " waist. I would say they are more like a medium.

Power cable

Hi
I live in France and I noticed that this only comes with UK plug for charging. Is this correct?
Regards
Jim
When I bought my bundle it came with adapters for the charger to fit other sockets, including the twin type in France.
