Folks,
Does anyone know if Castelli do a crash repair service, i know they do the replacement but as it's a pocket liner even the repalcement is still a few quid! I seem to remember reading somewhere on the forum about Castelli repairing someone elses item? I will be contatcing Castelli as well just thought I'd ask here as well.

I asked about this a couple of weeks ago and contacted Castelli and have heard nothing back.

I would like to know after I put a hole in my 3 week old Xmas present gillet  20

they only offer it on items purchased from the castelli cafe directly ... ahhh grrr.  14 & it's at full ticket price - 40% which isn't actually that much less than i paid for it via wiggle, so i'm pretty much hung out to dry on this.
Wiggle obviously can't offer anything either.

Apologizes i don't know about the bib but guess it would be the same regarding purchase place

That's a bit crap. I don't know how many firms do offer crash replacement, other than Rapha.

That is crap, I love Castelli stuff but paying the kind of money we do for their high end clothing should have some kind of policy no matter where we buy it. I have the Surpasso tights which are not cheap either. I was lucky with my Pocket Liner, I only paid £190 for it from a lbs, hopefully she will match that again if I trash mine.

I bought the pocket liner as its mean to be even better technology wise than the equivalent Assos jack which is dearer again than the Castelli but I was wearing an Assos habu underneath too & it is has sustained rips as well, just waiting for Assos to reply but your quite right reagrding their policy
