I took someone else's advice and ordered two rolls of this. I'm glad I did. There is a bit of a leaning curve with this (not a fault of the product IMO), so if you've not done anything like this before, I recommend one roll per wheel. Once you get the technique figured out (about 1/2 of 1 wheel) the rest of the job goes pretty quickly. Having a 3rd hand available to spin the wheel for you would be nice so you don't have to take your hands off the tape at all.

Shoei CW-1 Spectra Faceshield The new Shoei Spectra CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pullsthe shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I choose the Chrome mirrored shield. Works great for blocking out sun and glare. Isn't so dark that you have trouble seeing in shaded areas. Works great for transitioning between sun and shade as well. And looks good to boot!
My only regret is not picking this up sooner.

As others suggested, I ordered a size up, and am glad I did. Once the pants broke in (week of daily commuting) they were very comfortable. Temps under about 55 (F), were a bit cold, temps from 55-80 have been perfect for these pants. Haven't had a chance to experience super warm weather yet.
Knee pads seem to have a very small sweet spot where they fit and stay in place (in relation to you and the bike), while not being uncomfortable. This is my first pair of riding pants though, so maybe all knee pads are like this.
Would recommend
Yes, I recommend this product.
