    Have to say I'm happy to get some men's clothing up in the hizzy here. While the Shebeest leopard print may bring out my eyes, it's not really my style.
    We're all pretty pumped about this, it came about in pretty much record time too, which was a miracle.

    That's awesome, congrats!

    On a side note....Crank Bros. merging with Selle Royal? My money was on SRAM buying them.

    Awesome!

    Descente has the only bibs that I'll wear.

    I, obviously, haven't tried every bib on the market, but I did try several and personally checked out about 15. From seams to chamois, Descente is the only one for me!

    That was a big surprise to me too. The SRAM thing seemed good, but then you have the cranks overlapping, etc. But I guess they had bigger wheel fish to fry.
    Doesn't seem like a lot in common with Selle Royal, but maybe it was more for Selle Royale's sake?
    Who knows?
    Still love their pedals though.

    :)

    Yeah, I'm pretty excited to add to my closet. Lord knows it's a mess of stuff I like, stuff I can't (or shouldn't) wear due to branding, etc.
    It's in need of an overhaul...
