Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

After always being a cheapskate DHB/NeoPro/TheBlackBibs user, I took a chance on some RedWhite Stealth bibs. I probably only needed their entry level for most of my rides but I don't have any long distance bibs at all.

Neopro jersey - but it's headed back

Bought the NeoPro Bliss jersey. The fabric is THIN and delicate.
What do you all think about these cycling fast-fashion places. Fun designs, cheap prices, disposable quality?

Some of their stuff looks nice, so I'm interested to hear about them. Have you bought/used garments from some of the big, reputable brands? Do you think that the NeoPro materials are of lesser quality? The fabrics from some lines, particularly the ones with a focus on lightweight breathability, are often pretty thin, but they still wear pretty well.

I want THIN butt padded area, not a thin jersey.

Best rear light I've used

Picked up a Cygolite Hotrod 90 and am very impressed
Lightweight, multiple modes, rechargeable, long battery life (depends on mode), visible in daytime, easy to turn on/off while riding, stays put and doesn't rattle, low profile

i'm a happy camper. Thanks for the recommendation (I went to this very forum and used the search function (can you believe it?!) to find what I should get)

I have their jersey and bib. Excellent RACE cut fit for both. High quality on both ends. No idea how they can do this at these prices. I am very impressed. Only bought to try, but will go back once they have more styles I like. Bibs were very comfy, and by that I mean I did not need to adjust anything on my last 160km fast ride. I would highly recommend. Just make sure you know you are getting a RACE cut clothing.

Picked up a pair of Garmin Rally Spd Sl single power meters, and a pair of gp5000 25 mm. Both are going on The Ritchey.
