De Marchi’s PT bibshort and jersey has got to be the nicest kit I’ve ever ridden in. I base that not on any particular observation of comfort, performance gains or aesthetic self-assessment, but simply the number of compliments I’ve had when wearing it.

Honestly, I’ve lost count of the favourable remarks colleagues and friends have made of the classy green coloured jersey with Italian-tricolour stripes and accompanying shorts. Generally people don’t compliment me on what I wear on the bike – if at all. I think the last time was 1997, when a club mate coveted the pair of Adidas racing shoes I had.
