    Is this worth the price?

    Offer $100 cash and walk, it aint worth anymore than that. The retailed for about $450 when new, that bike is old junk.

    Ice Jacket Right Before A Time Trial???

    Was that the cheapest deal around? Amazon is sometimes more exxy than my local shops for some reason.

    Cycling jerseys -- why so expensive?

    economics 101, you sell your products for the highest amount your customer will bare. If people decided to stop buying them on mass, the price will be dropped by retailers. The price of stuff often has nothing to do with the cost to manufacture, things like value systems, fads etc. play a part.

    Is there a "better" tread for degraded road surfaces?

    Nope, just run a good set of 25mm tires and you'll be alright.

    Need to order right tubular tires.

    Either will be fine. A lot of pros are riding 25mm these days, i'd go with them. Slightly more grip and slightly softer ride, i don't know if the differences are measurable or not though.
