    Strengths:    Inexpensive, light fabric, length, number of pockets

    Weaknesses:    Thin pad, poor waist to length ratio, baggy

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm a tall, thin guy (6'4" 210 pounds). My waist is a heavy 35" and I read that I needed a XXL for 36" as these sized wrong. I am SO glad that I got the XXL as there is not a whole heck of a lot of wiggle room around the waist. The problem is the compression-like liner that hardly 'compresses' around my skinny chicken thighs. Also the overall baggy length of the shorts causes then to repeatedly catch on the horn of my seat. The tight waist with the long baggy length is and odd ratio.

    The padded liner is VERY thin compared to other shorts that I have seen in the store or that my wife uses. I would say about half the thickness of a typical Pearl Izumi pad. I took these out on my 3rd and 4th ride (20 miles and 17 miles respectively) this weekend and I didn't really notice there was a pad in them at all. I'll drop a little extra coin and look for some Fox or something that is worth the extra loot.

    I don't want to even whisper "W" in a crowded bike-house but I was looking for something and stumbled into this: "Proposed legislation would add the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River to the protected Alpine Wilderness Lakes area, Saturday Jun 21, 2013." Here is a link to the article: [url=h ... Read More »

    What is a Boost Valve?

    I would really like a more thorough explanation about what the boost valve does on the FOX DHX Air 4.0 rear shock. Adjusting the PSI seems to impact the compression damping which I am still uncertain about what that is. It ranges from 125-200 PSI and it seems that up near 200 provide a stiffer rid ...

    Float X on Mach 5.7: lack of boost valve a problem?

    Will the Mach 5.7 not work well with the new Fox Float X shock? I was thinking of trying one out then read that it does not have the boost valve and includes less bottom-out resistance. Since some people are already complaining about shock bottoming and the 5.7 easily uses all of its travel, would ... Read More »
