Strengths: Nice and Light weight, stretchy/flexible, water repellent, quality construction, non-chaffing material, snap-in ventilated spandex liner short w/ comfy ergo chamois, 2 cargo pockets, non-baggy fit
Weaknesses: not necessarily a weakness, but they're a tad on the long side (22" outseam i believe). no zip vents, but they dont really need them with the nice fabric.
photo shown is for the spandex liner/chammy shorts. go to www.mavic.com to see the actual shorts.
i was a little hesitant buying these w/o checking them out in person. also, mtb clothes seems like a newer venture for mavic, but they make great wheels so i assumed their clothes would be on par. definitely well worth it, and glad i picked up a pair of these shorts. im 5'11" 155lbs (30-31in waist 32in inseam) and wear mediums. the waist line has a little room, and they fall about center knee.
Quality is superb. The inside of the material is textured to prevent chaffing and works perfectly. Excellent fit, with strategically placed neoprene like stretch panels so theres no worrying about the shorts moving around or bunching up.

No matter which side of the coin you are on about HOW trails are created there is no den ... Read More »
2nd year in a row that the family and I are ringing in the New Year in Sedona. Cooler temps greeted us this year; lows in the 20's and highs in the mid 40's. I was able to fit in a quick first day warm up ride on Llama and Little Horse. Overnight snow has delayed today's ride...

Does anyone know the status of the Sedona Red Rock parking passes? I don't mean to re-hash the pros/cons of paid parking - I just want to know what is going on with that program and enforcement.
I know the program was challenged in court and the challenge was upheld for unimproved trailhead park ... Read More »
