" I bought this as a gift so was weary about the sizing due to previous reviews. Bought the large and the giftee loved it. This is an item that you look at a lot but don't buy for yourself and then wonder why. Dont wonder...buy one, you'll love it, it's really light weight. "

" Bought this last minute before riding from John O'Groats to Lands End in June, so glad I did. It is good quality & was really useful for the chilly mornings. I found that I wore it all day as it was so breathable & didn't rub around the neck like some cheaper ones can.
Sizing was good, I bought a small. It's not too long at the front either, but I'm only 5ft 4 so it's something I'm conscious of.
Only draw back...it's not a shell, so doesn't fit into a back pocket easily.

" Now I know that these are a bit pricey, but as the saying goes...you get what you pay for.
These are my first choice when out cycling for a long ride. when you get past 70 miles these shorts are worth every penny.
No annoying rubbing for anything in these shorts.
Leg grippers are the best.
The waistband is really comfortable unlike some of the cheaper brands I've tried....and they are very durable having had a couple of spills whilst wearing them and there wasn't a mark on 'em (remarkable)
I will purchase some more, as soon as I've saved up!

" Haven't bought a swimsuit for 20yrs, so I suppose I was easy to impress? This suit does not dig in anywhere, creating unsightly bulges, which is great. I bought a sml and it fitted nicely around the bottom area.
I found it a bit awkward to climb into at first, but that could just be me and my dodgy shoulders, but apart from that it's a good purchase. Not see- through either... "

" These are my first pair of compression tights, so I was really surprised how much of a difference they make to muscle recovery after a long ride.
Good quality, look and feel great and I can wear them on their own as they are not transparent unlike some of my cycling tights!
They look tiny when you get them out of the packet but they do fit and the sizing is spot on
The only thing I would remind anyone who buy these tights is to take care when pulling them on, the first time I put mine on, I thought I'd pulled the stitching, but they were fine......so quite durable. "

" Wasn't sure about this one, when I ordered it as I'm a small woman so went for the xs mens as I couldn't find many team jerseys in ladies fit!
As a man's top goes, it's not a bad fit , although a bit loose in the body, it looks the biz.
If I were a man, I would struggle with the sleeves if I even had standard sized bicpets....but for my puny arms, it was a good fit.

" This is the first trainer I've bought. Read all the reviews and they weren't wrong...what a good buy! Really easy to set up. Can drop my road bike in and out easily...the only thing is that my spindle ends get scratched so I've made a leather insert to stop that.
This is really sturdy and I use it in conjuction with the Elite front wheel stand ...at just over a tenner you can't complain.
Did not think I'd like cycling indoors but I'll definitely get a lot of use out of this over the winter.

" These were my first experience of swimming goggles, so I was very happy with the result. They do leave an impression on your face, but that's to be expected due to the good suction. 3 nose grips to choose from and they are easy enough to change to get the best fit.
I only swim for 45 minutes at a time and they don't fog up during that time.
The adjustable straps stay secure on your head.....so all in, I'm happy with the Zoggs.

Are the white ladies assos shorts see through at the front?

Five years ago I ordered some assos white ladies shorts and had to send them back as they were so see through. I am hoping that assos has now improved on them. Will order these for summer useage if they are suitable.

The assos ladies bib is fantastic for winter and looks extremely stylish and is flattering.
I bought the red ones and they are not see through.

Assos vs Sugoi sizing

Sorry to ask yet another sizing question. I have been wearing small Sugoi shorts, great fit. Pearl mediums are too big. Does that still equate to a small Assos? I am right in the middle for hips on the size chart between small and medium, but a small on the height.
I think I'm about your size and went for the Sml Assos. They fit fine. Just have to pull them on carefully. They don't dig in anywhere and look the biz...

Have read the instructions which I find a bit confusing, but maybe this is simple. How do you replace your bike's quick release with the one supplied?

Best answer
You don't have to...just drop your bike in as it is if you don't mind a few scratches on your spindle end....you just need to align the quick release handle with the slot.
