Zimtstern Kelzie Jersey and Taila Short - Review
Luckily no dreaded gap but a tiny bit longer and they'd be perfect. Luckily I'm lacking in the guns department, here's hoping it still fits nicely if I decide to do something about going to the gym over the winter. The arms aren't mega tight but there's not a huge amount of room if you want big elbow pads or do happen to have larger than 'average' biceps.

Zimtstern Kelzie Jersey and Taila Short - Review
@andnyleswillriot: It's just personal preference at the end of the day. Some people may prefer things a little shorter and I imagine most garments are sized based on the average, meaning it will work for the majority. I see your point, though.

Don't mind them, just prefer something a little longer for riding ;)

No, all prices are correct, the pricing factors in VAT and postage too (according to the Zimtstern site).

Juliana Strega – First Ride
@newtoDH: Thank you, you'd almost think people missed where I wrote: "There's no denying that the Strega is the Nomad but branded for women, neither Santa Cruz nor Juliana are trying to shy from that fact..." That's not even what Juliana are trying to achieve with the Strega, it's about giving women options and like you said, changing things like the saddle, suspension tune etc. Marketing and attitude has a big part to play in Juliana, that's kind of the point for Santa Cruz they are trying to attract more people to the brand by trying different things they've given the Strega the lead in this launch and have been able to get more creative with the project. Yes, it is the same bike, but the way in which it's marketed ensures it reaches a wider target audience, in their words: "there’s the way you communicate about that product and that’s where things really go different and I think that’s where the people will question if it’s the right thing to do, but it is the right thing to do because if you just kept things economically sensed you’d just have Josh Bryceland riding it and you’d just be communicating to 90% of your audience and that’s all you’d ever do." I hope that kind of clarifies things a little more, I know on the surface it doesn't make sense, but when you go a little deeper you see why they do what they do, women want to ride the same as men (in most cases) but then there are both men and women alike who can't get the right size, they may need a smaller frame for example, and arguably you'll often change things like saddle, bar and stem etc, but buying something that's good to go that has an equal spec to a unisex bike is always a nice option.
