definition of cold? Everyone is different. I'd recommend having all of the clothes you mentioned at your disposal. I find that every five degrees requires a different combo of gear. It's annoying and if you get it wrong you freeze or fry. When you get it right, you can ride as if the temp doesn't matter.

|Keep in mind-I LIKE the cold-I usually don't get cold unless it is real cold, but here's what I have; 2 LS thermal undershirts-got 'em cheap @ sierra trading post,a couple of LS jerseys, a windbreaker (yellow-doesn't everyone have one?), a pair of arm, leg, and knee warmers, a hat, glove liners, a couple of pair of gloves, varying warmth, and several pairs of tights, varying warmth, plus a winter jacket. If it us really cold (less than 30 or so), I'l wear a SS tee, a LS wicking undershirt, the jacket, hat, gloves + liners, heavy tights, and winter shoes or booties. Add or subtract layers as needed =) BTW-I live in PA, too.|

|As a base layer, I wear this under a jersey in temps in the fourties. If I'm riding in a fast group, I don't need any jacket or arm warmers.
I wear a pair of these on my hands. They have a longer cuff which is important when your riding all stretch out in the drops.
I wear one of these under my helmet. It fits perfect, covers the ears, and is windproof.
To keep the feet warm, I have a pair of these. They have a durable sole and are windproof.

|I like to check out the their website every month. They always have lots of stuff on sale, closeout, or clearance. The problem is that it's usually odd-sized stuff. But every one in a while, you can score.|| |
