Will I notice the same difference if I stepped up to some Castelli? I canít see paying 200+ for assos? But Iím willing to listen if theyíre that much better.
They are so much more than much better.
But most importantly, once you get a pair you get access to the $200+ bib sub forum.
There we teach you how to color coordinate and accessorize your bicycle. How to correctly shave your legs. And ofc how to properly hand wash your bibs in bottled water heated up to exactly 62 degrees. Among other necessary cycling procedures.
I will probably have my access revoked just for divulging this
