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!

I ordered a Stance Kingpin from cuz they we're $100 and I'm just gonna put it away for an extra fork. I'm thinking of building a cheap freeride bike and putting this fork on it. Anyway, I heard that the seals blow on this thing. It's something to do with an O-ring being too small an ... Read More »

Jenson claims to have Kingpins in stock. Anyone get one yet?

Looking for feedback on the fork. Comments? Any issues? How does it ride? How does the air assist work? Is it on the spring side or compression/rebound side?Read More »
