    What Base Layers?

    I want to get some tights and a long sleeve base layer for racing. I've already got jerseys and bibs - what brands/styles should I look for?

    I am tempted by these wool bib-knickers for winter riding:

    i grabbed some swobo stuff on sale = goodness.

    wool will sag badly when wet. It is great as a base layer, but not so awesome as a top layer when wet
