    A mate of mine wears nowt but Assos.He must've spent £££1000s over the years but reckons it's worth it.
    He says Castelli is a poor mans Assos(apparently they're both made in the same factory in Lithuania nowadays)

    I'm going to quietly ask a question hoping that not many people will notice it.

    In colder months when we wear many layers (some of them over bib shorts straps), what do you do when you want to pee?

    My new fangled BIBs work like wetsuits, you just pee as you go and it keeps you warm.

    Just washed both my BLs together, the Sportful came out nearly bone dry compared to the Craft one.

    Thought that was interesting, think it’s due to materials and not Fabric weight.

    Apart from The Merino BLs I have all the others are made of similar blends of Polyester and Elastane.Some are 90%/10%,some are 70%/30% etc.Very little difference in weight.

    So with Merino, I'd expect drying to be tougher non?

    They dry just as quick when hung out IME but they don’t take much longer than a Synthetic BL to dry when worn.They’re still very thin and light and despite being wool feel synthetic.IMO they are warmer than synthetic.
