Checked out the latest CC catalog and saw that there are three bibs that cost over $200 and a seemingly "normal" looking jersey for $150. WHAT???

Oh yes, and it seems that the boys favorite model is back displaying herself in a nice looking tank top...
Hey you can't wear $50 bibs on a Dogma EgoColnagoFE

You gotta have the high zoot model. I own a pair of Assos F113s and they are great bibs--probably the most confortable I've worn. Worth $200? Nah...for the $ I'll stick with my usual Performance Elites.
Better than $200 bibs on a Huffy. nmdzrider

Good quality stuff very, very cheap. Yes, a lot of it is UGLY, but if you are looking for cheap bike duds, they rock. I use them for my commuter clothes - stuff that I won't cry over when it wears out through washing or abuse.

Purchased brand new, in the bag, Castelli Progetto Y2 VT bib shorts for about 80 bucks on ebay a few weeks ago.

If you want the very latest model, top-line, primo manufacturer bibs, at full retail, they'll be expensive. But you can pay less even for those. And you can get really top quality bibs for much less if you look around. Although I balk at 200 bucks, I really do prefer good bibs and I don't mind paying a few extra bucks to get them. Considering what I spend on cycling, and considering that I actually find good bibs more comfortable ...

thought that $225 was spendy a few years ago, now a top-of-the-line pair of shoes is pushing $400!

fwiw...i work in a bike shop and i have NEVER had anyone complain about assos clothing...except when they say that, now they have worn it, they can't ever wear anything else again. it's expensive, but no one i have spoken with who has paid the $$$ has any complaints.
