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.
I was using $30-40 bibs before joining my team and getting hooked on Castelli Free Aero Race bibs, the difference is night and day. You can often find the Free Races around $100 on sale, def worth it, imo.
