Strengths:    I used the same adjective to describe Krank's Dubbie jersey, but no other word comes to mind -- DURABLE.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Please buy these shorts. You will never again complain about snagged legs, bunched liners or an aching bum. In my opinion, they are perfectly under-engineered -- no elastic at the end of the liner on the thigh (which on other shorts grabs the leg hair and eventually deteriorates in the laundry), strap belt (easy to cinch), two "normal" pockets up front (perfect to hold keys and other items both before and after a ride), one zippered pocket (maps, acorns), and stretchy crotch material.

I don't understand how these shorts take the abuse -- I lose skin but the fabric above shows no signs of abrasion.

I have two pairs, but one would do, despite laundering them several time a week for more than one year. You will need two pairs as well, because they look so darn good!
