Picked up some of their cheap bibs (T.Mille S7 - £100 RRP, but online for £75) which I assume are their reaction to Rapha Core.
Seem very nice and came in a very pleasing if completely unnecessary box. Quite short in the leg which is good for short people like me.
Are these the shorts that shredded your arse?
No shorts shredded my arse. Although two pairs of Assos were involved, most of the blame falls on the overly padded saddle. I wore a pair of the newer chamois shorts (S7?) during TABR with fair less damage than TCR. I'll be wearing them again for TCR.
Any deals on Assos shorts around at the moment?
Now Rapha is the chopper clobber of choice, is Assos due a discreet comeback?
Picked up some Velocio bibs the other day which have the exact same chamois and overall bib construction/quality as Assos. As if they had come from the same factory.
I never stopped wearing it. When I say 'it' I mean their knicks. I have a pair of their mitts too, maybe some other stuff. I prefer the look of Castelli but that's spendy as fuck and their sizing is wank. I'm not buying other brands unless someone gives me a pair that prove to be awesome.
Where from? They don't appear to be available any more. Also you can get Assos bibs for less than £80 so why risk other brands?
