I use the shorts on every bike ride, 10-15 miles, around 4 times a week. I have multiple pairs and they are the only shorts I use. Based on other reviews I did size up and they fit perfect. I think they will last a long time.
I have Assos and like them very much. I have Castelli Premio and they are good. Giordana FR-C are the best I have ridden. Of all my bibs, once on the bike I never think about the FR-C's again. They check all the boxes from chamois (never feel the need to stand up and let things recover a bit), to compression, to length, to shoulder straps. My second choice are the Assos, but once I wear them out I likely replace them with more Giordana. Oh sure, I will try the latest and greatest just to see, but the FR-C are the best I have worn. For summer I have purchased a pair of Assos Lite FR-C and they are perforated on the legs for ventilation but still perfectly compressive. For any longer rides, races, fondos, etc., I pull on the FR-C bibs.
This is my fourth pair of these bibs. I have 2 pairs of these pro bibs that are 6 year old, I have put tens of thousands of miles on them and still in regular rotation. Mostly use the older ones for mid distance and the new ones for long rides. I have tried a half dozen (Castelli, sportful, Giro, Gore Wear, etc) other brands high end bib shorts and these just fit me well. Comfortable very breathable fabric. Nice laser cut straps that are soft and do not dig into skin even after 8 hours in the saddle. Pad is well fitting with good coverage but not overly bulky. My pair of Sportful bibs are crazy lightweight, breathable but the pad is massive so tends to rub on long rides. These PI Pro do not for me. If you put in the miles these are well worth the money in my opinion. Especially considering how long they tend to last. My only quibble on the new versions is that the legs are a tad longer than the old ones. I am 5'8", 160lbs. Wear a medium. The old versions stopped 4-5 inches above my knee. The new ones end an inch above knee. They do rub behind the knee though so not a big deal. Just personal preference that I liked the shorter leg length but designs/trends change. I have been cycling for 30 years.
I'm riding in the mountains of South America and it will rain often while in 40s-50s. This jacket checks all the boxes. It packs into its own pocket and easily fits in a jersey. The shake-dry is worth the investment if your actually putting out the watts/ breathable. I'm enjoying the all around protection while descending mountains in the wet and keeping me from going hypo thermic (of course any jacket would work for that) but it weighs basically nothing to assist with the accent. I'm 5,10/ 165 and went with an XL. It fits me well, not skin tight race ready but comfortable. I'm thinking a L would of worked also. But happy with the XL.
