Few Questions about Planet X Products

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Few Questions about Planet X Products

Looking to replace my Ebay short sleeve jerseys and I've got my eye on Planet X's offerings (ie: https://www.planet-x-usa.com/i/q/CLS...-italia-jersey). For those with experience with their clothing, are they true to the sizing chart? Also, how quick is their service to U.S. shipping-wise?

Second, are their ultralight cnc brakes still coming equipped with Swissstop pads? I vaguely remember the site expressly stating they come stock, but the U.S. and U.K. site now says "standard wheel pads".

Don't know anything about their gear, but they're CNC brake calipers do not come with Swiss stop brake pads anymore. They stopped doing that about 2 years ago.

That's a shame. I guess I've been out of the loop for a while then. I'm assuming that's how they were able to lower the price.
