Strengths:    fabric, look, chamois, feel

Weaknesses:    sizing, length

Bottom Line:   
Overall I was/am really happy with these shorts. I will say that their sizing is completely off. I take 33/34 in pants and due to the last reviewer bought their Large which says waist 35/36 or something along those lines. They run small. That's the only complaint that I would have currently. They are also a little long but I have shorter legs (about a 30 inseam), but most shorts are pretty long now anyway. The fabric is fantastic. Pretty stretchy with some of the fabric actually being mesh to allow better airflow. The zippered pockets are nice too for those days you leave the house and want a place to store your keys and maybe a cell and/or wallet. Again, I'm happy with these shorts but wish Bellwether would figure out the sizing.

Strengths:    Look Good, nice chamois.

Weaknesses:    Sizing runs small

Bottom Line:   
Picked up on sale at PricePoint. I wear size 37-38 pants/shorts and according to the Bellwether site, that would put me in the XL range, so thats what I got. Once I received them and held them up I could tell it was going to be a tight fit. Once I had them over my hips, I knew there was no way they were gonna fit right. I BARELY got the buttons snapped...moral to the story, the sizing runs small. Now I have to exchange them :-(

Switchback technique question

I have a section of trail that I just can't seem to ride. It is a downhill switchback that goes from left to right. It is a hairpin turn. On top of that the trail is really dry and loose and it is on a 45 degree slant downhill. As I approach to turn right into the switchback, my wheel keeps slid ... Read More »

True or False? - Uphill Switchback Uses Same Body Position as Track Stand

In attempting to put into words for a novice rider the proper way to maintain traction and make an uphill switchback, I boiled it down to: Learn how to track stand, then go do your uphill switchback. Does this seem like sound advice? I managed to demonstrate it, even rolling backwards a bit o ... Read More »

New switchback trail bypass

There is now a nice new switchback trail near the top of Rusty (3) Barrels. This allows for a nice in-the-saddle climb to the top. Or you can still stand-up and do the fireroad climb to the top too. Pops to the "engineers" on the design and layout.:thumbsup: BikingScottRead More »
