Fits perfectly, looks good - is comfortable to wear, well done!

Better than Castelli even - and similar excellent leg-gripper style. :)

Yes, I quite like the kit, the bib is very comfortable with its nice wide shoulder straps. I love the socks. Did you say there were more of them? I'd be up for a few extras.

I have plenty of XL socks and know that Tineli has a few more though need to check which size (min. order of socks was actually higher than expected).


Otherwise I have plenty of emails and comments here as well on the quality of the kit. I know that we didn't do a bargin basement price but with the quality and extras like reflecting piping and flatlock the price was excellent as I would expect to pay much more for off-the-rack gear in this quality. I cut-even on the costs, infact have lost out a bit due to 3 kit orders which are not being paid for and are sitting here though - hopefully for one, the one gentleman is just on holidays and gets back soon. The sizes are not common sizes so unfortunately wont suit most people.


Despite this, we had a long wait on this at one stage I gave the design to Tineli though their suggestions didn't match my (our) vision. None the less, a big credit to Jono of Tineli in Melbourne who has helped make this a reality, who met my expections as a supplier by taking a genuine interest, discussing the design and providing valuable feedback so that we get the best results. Not only that - the kit was delivered on time with the usual 12 weeks for the socks shortened so that we could have the kit sooner (from the time it was ordered).

Corsa = Race = Black = Fast = Win

Strada = Street = Blue = Safer = Win

Corsa + Strada = Bi-winning

Finally, my calf was ready to ride again and the weather was almost good enough to trial the outfit, so armed with a base layer, it got trialled on a shortish local ride.

Fit is good, although I could have gone for XL bibs, but they fit well. Chamois is good, and the jersey fit is great as is the overall quality.

Many thanks Chris :D

Having to wear a jacket still with this - but the fit is good.

Perhaps a hint for a future BNA cycling kit, long pants as well? :idea: :wink: (just a none too subtle hint). :D

Believe me, I'd buy them if they were the same quality as the rest!

That's a good tip as it seems as though summer doesn't want to appear.

+1, it's some of the best quality gear I've owned. Still get a bit shocked the socks are worth $25 every time I put them on.
