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 atom smasher technique?

Im looking to get better on the flowy downhill switchbacks. I love the art of when i can let off the brakes,& rocket out of the turns,feeling the suspension compress,& release. The g-force gives me a rush that i cant get enough of. Anyone else get this passion/buzz? Thanks for the dope.Read More »

Stanton Switchback, another slack HT option.

This just popped up on my RSS feed. Seems like a great combo of geo and features for those of us wanting a sturdy slack HT.
