Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
Sarah -- my guitar, mini-bar & cookie party partner and alter ego -- wears size small and shops at Gap Kids, but said she had to go to a medium Castelli jersey (the La Cimbali one). At first she blamed it on the Cookie Parties, but I don't think so -- darn the thing IS small! Finally accepting the size medium, she recently climbed back on her bike and we are hopeful.
As for the Windstopper fabric -- agree wholeheartedly w Mr T (man still). Great addition to the cool weather costume and whatever it takes to keep us on the bike -- important for reasons too many to count. I've a pr of Windstopper gloves -- they keep out the molecular chill but are sufficiently light to avoid overheat, a problem for me even here in the pacific NW. Windstopper else, brilliant.
And to CL for placing these goodies to our attention and within reach, thanks. Would like still to see the CandySL or EggbeaterSLs, but who's complaining?
Approaching the day of least light, I have been doing two things. Working. And eating toast. The couch sees more of me, and more of me. I hope I am buying enough gear for all the rides I am planning.
These are tricky times in Tinseltown -- and it is no less true that in these days of dark y chill, without satire and bike I would die.
theres no way to tell whats going to be on is there? Ive been trying to grab the L&M ARC light and I've seen it a few times, but havent had enough time to order it. thanks.
Gotta give thumbs up to the tops that utilize Windstopper. Even though it's a women's top showing, I just came in from a ride wearing the Freddo Duo top, a minor base, and Ergo bibs- happy happy.
Now, still being a man -yep, still am- I have to wear a XXL being a 34 waist and 44 chest. Not sure the same discrepancy (despite chart) exists for women in sizing, but Castelli runs small as mentioned here often. Would like to hear from the women if this is true.
Would love to see some more SRAM/Shimano compatible DV66T Reynolds wheelsets!
Thanks Nonny, but it is too late for that, the addiction has already comenced (sp?).
Thanks for the info also.
The items up here are actually listed at the backcountry and backcountryoutlet site as well. As the stock here goes, quantities available at the other site(s) are adjusted accordingly. Usually the prices are much better at the deal-a-day sites, but every once in a while (especially with the free shipping option) the deal is actually better at the bc/bc outlet sites.
Welcome - and don't get too addicted!
How does this site work? Does the excess inventory of what you don't sell go to Backcountry for sale at a slightly higher price?
Sure would love to see women's bib shorts today in the Descente Strada style.
A white Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow Saddle would look great with all the new Castelli apparel from yesterday!
