Endura kit arrived :D , sids and Ritchey WCS

just got some Endura Stealth equipment for winter training and the puffer

1 stealth jacket
1 stealth extreme bib longs
1 stealth lite bib long
1 pair of deluge gloves

wore them home through the torrential rain and rode through loads of puddles

dry as a bone the stuff really is a work of art - didnt sweat up and wet out from the inside from sweat.

Although the endura Extremes did feel "warm" and would strictly be cold day only kit the jacket with a base layer under was perfect and didnt feel too warm in the slightest even with the vents all shut.

Also got my sids back from warrenty - the lowers were twisted after relentless - common fault apparently. Fisher spotted a leaky motion control so changed it out for a world cup blackbox damper (to replace my basic race motion control) and put on new sid team lowers.

and courtesy of the STW classifieds i have a seat post with 25mm layback to make my Merida fit correctly as the thomson post was "inline" and set me too far over the pedal.

yes wayne after 2 months using it in all weathers i can say that the stealth kit is as good as it says on the tin and in reviews ....

venting is a godsend when riding to work - 7am its allways nacker shrinkingly cold when i set off and by the time i get half way up the long drag climb to work im cooking - open vents and all is good in the world
