Good to know. I suspect that the suit I am getting will be too big on him, so he may need the small tourmaster jacket anyway. If not, I will recycle and post it up for sale.

As someone who is about to upgrade the front CS to 14T, why did you choose the 15/45 instead? I take it the gearing is the same.
