Is anyone else experiencing tearing at the end of the seam of chamois? I am constantly getting holes after some time, that being while chamois is still looking as new. And I am getting fed up with it to be honest. I bought one Q36.5 in between and had no such issues. I am guessing the problem is Asoss' chamois is not sewn whole way around but just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

I love Assos apparel but am not willing to toss away perfectly fine bibs/tights because of this issue. So I might try some more Q36.5 which I also liked in the end.
Yep same thing, have multiple pairs with same problem and multiple teammates with same alao. Starts with the rearmost stiches and gradually moves forward. So far assos has been replacing the bibs, I've had the problem with three or four pairs, all RS S9. Houdini suit seems not to have the same problem

Did you buy directly from them (Assos)?

Edit: To me it's hapenning on Equipe RS spring fall bibs and habu tights (S9) as well, besides regular Equipe RS. Haven't worn targa much but considering I went from M to S on these I am not expecting they will last very long.

No, from LBS. My RS springfall have been trouble free, only regular RS bibs have had the problem.

Anyone have insight on how the Assos arm warmers & UV sleeves are sized in reality. Their sizing chart (0, 1, 2) just refers to typical jersey sizing (e.g. a 1 would be your usual M or L) but that still leaves me with some questions.

The Castelli sizing chart is more helpful I find - I'd want their size L which would be 47cm long when laid out flat and 13cm wide at the widest end.

My arms are now 30 cms and size I is perfect, too were perfect with 27-28 cms, Spring arm warmers strech a lot, do not confused by the short length of Spring arm warmers

I just want to say how happy I am with the Spring/Fall GTS bibs. Perfection for when the temperature is somewhere between above freezing and around +10. Size M fit seems very similiar to M from Equipe Evo and RS 9.

Anyone try the new EQUIPE RS SCHTRADIVARI BIB SHORTS yet? If so, how do they compare to the previous generation?
I'm curious about the length of the legs. Assos are doing 'standard' and 'long' versions of this new bib.

I found the S9 Targa bib short legs a bit too long for me compared to the original S9. I wonder how the standard length S11 bib short compares to the S9 Targa.
I went to the Assos booth at Cyclingworld Europe in Düsseldorf yesterday and had a chat with one of their representatives about the S11. The standard S11 is supposed to have the same leg length as the S9 Targa with the long version getting about +3cm leg length extra.
I bought the SCHTRADIVARI shorts on sale surprisingly off BikeCloset. Must've been mispriced. First pair of Assos Bibs. Still has the gay bulge. I like the fit compared to my Rapha pro team bibs... Now trying to find the S11 aero jersey on sale..

What is the "gay bulge"?
