This morning it was 60f and reality blew right through my lycra, although after I got going body-heat made things a bit more bearable.
my question is, what am I looking at for my first kit of winter-gear?
I figure I need a pair of cycling pants, a long-sleeve jersey, full fingered gloves and a balaclava.
I also had a thought that getting a black helmet w/o many holes would be a good idea (less heat loss and a little solar energy absorbtion) has anyone noticed an effect from this?
my questions are 1) do i need some kind of baselayer beneath the jersey/tights (and what's a good cheap option for this) I was thinking underarmor.
2) what's a good price for full leggings and a longsleeve jersey?
winter for the record, usually dips down to about 15f at the worst
