Postby p1tse » Thu Jan 17, 2013 00:42 am

Budget circa £20

dhb Vaeon Roubaix

Or

Campagnolo

Looking at wiggle reviews dhb probably a medium for me with 31-32" inside leg and average thighs
Anyone any experience with campagnolo sizing?

I use the dhb Vaeon and they are very good, and have kept me warm over the last few days on the commute where it hasnt been above freezing (paired with Pace Roubaix shorts - last years version of the veaon).

I Have a 31/32" inside leg and the medium fit me very well, be aware though there is no zip at the ankle and they are a bit snug.

Thanks.

I quite like the finer detail on the campagnolo though

Not bought either, but Campagnolo kit is superb quality. Comes up very small though.

I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

I have some other campy clothing, and yes they do come up small. Italians clearly lie about their clothing sizes to make them feel better about themselves.

Campagnolo is no longer going to make clothing - so there's a lot of old stock being sold off cheap. It's good stuff but usually a tad overpriced - but at the moment, if it's in your size, there's bargains about.

Anyone had campagnolo leg warmers and know what sizing is like?

If the prices do come down I wouldn't mind a heritage jacket even as casual wear.

Actually see CRC have Campagnolo bib tights from £100 to £50 which is tempting

I think Chainreaction will let you return purchases for free, so you could buy different sizes and return the ones that don't fit (check returns policy on clothing first).

Campag is great quality as already said. Time to get some old stock before it all disappears. Nice quality, and even better value while the bargains are there.
