I'm usually a Cinelli bar tape guy, but have been experimenting with other types recently. I have two bikes, ride 6k miles a year between them. This tape is soft and tacky enough for my gravel bike. I got it in bright orange, which is nearly fluorescent, which I think is awesome. The tape has gotten dirty pretty quickly, which I guess is to be expected. I'm guessing I'll get 700-800 miles out of this stuff before it starts to look ragged, but then again I am somehow hard on my bar tape. I always seem to go back to Cinelli.
The is my first pair of Fizik shoes. They look and feel good. I don't have particularly wide feet (D) and the wide shoe fits me perfectly. I usually wear a 12 to 12 1/2 and the size 46 fits well. The BOA closure works great and gets them snug and comfortable.
I've put in a few hundred miles so far with a few 50+ mile rides and my feet have been comfortable. On hot rides, I've noticed that these shoes are less ventilated than my older LG shoes and my feet get warmer than I would like. Overall, I'm very pleased with these shoes and will strongly consider Fizik for my next pair.
I've been using Fizik Antares for several years, mostly the R1 carbon braided version. I've recently bought the new open style version for my gravel bike. So much more comfortable than my non-cut out version that I sold that one off and replaced it with a second R1 open version saddle.
I feel the open version padding to be more comfortable and the benefit of having the open version works well for me. Great buy, worth looking into if you're a fan of the non-open version.
I became a Fizik saddle convert after many years of being a loyal Selle Italia rider (although the Turbo will never come off my vintage Eroica bike). The Anteras is designs for folks with average flexibility and the Microtex cover material has a fabulous leather-like feel, and it has a very clean look on the bike. My best advice is to make sure you know exactly how wide your sit bones are (ideal saddle width is sit bone width + 20mm). The regular size is quite narrow at 141mm. I found after about a year of riding that it was too narrow for me, but the large version at 152mm is just right. Highly recommended saddle!
