I’m on vacation this week. Just a frittering vacation. Took a car full of stuff to the thrift shop, had noodle soup at Main B&B (man, I miss those lunch breaks at B&B…), drove my daughter to University, talked to Waldo about listing my house, etc. Today I tooled around downtown Wpg and dropped into MEC. They’ve really ramped up their cycling wear this season. They’ve brought in a much enhanced line of Castelli kits. Like this Prologo 3 Jersey – at $79 it seems like a fair price point too (compared to the $120 plus you pay for Italian brands at the typical LBS). Castelli roots go back 130 years to tailor Vittore Gianni from Milan. The MEC kits also seem to be of higher quality this year. I’m getting more partial to designer/unbranded kits. Not so keen on the typical loud/busy/noisy kits of charity rides and pro tour knock-offs. As per my earlier post, I think MEC is targeting the booming MAMIL market. Works for me :).
