Strengths:    Very durable material overall. Nice panel design.

Weaknesses:    Small minimal pocket. Very poor ratchet design on the closure. Hot.

Bottom Line:   
Looks are just ok on this short. A little big in the hip area. I bought a large, but it is a very large, large. The pocket material has ripped on the inside. The Rockgardn logo looks cool down the legs, but a little weird on the arse. Tough short for $39US, though. Wish for more pockets.

Strengths:    Lightweight, super durable, look really good, very comfortable, pocket comes in handy.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
These are by far the most comfortable and toughest bike shorts I've ever worn. I recommend the CYA padded shorts to go underneath if you need the protection. Rockgardn kicks ass!

Strengths:    Good fit, tough fabric, well vented, not to hot...

Weaknesses:    The waist buckle is black the only color????

Bottom Line:   
I wore these shorts for the season, they fit me good and were cool and comfy, saved my ass skin on the crashes, well worth the bux, looks like they are good for a few more seasons.

Summit Trail (Not Snow Summit) Land of Log Rides

Summit Trail is up here in the Southern Sierras near Camp Nelson. It is a good way to add 9 miles to The Nelson Trail and make a longer ride out of it. We have been cleaning it up lately and it is coming along. [url][/url]Read More »

Westridge Trail at Snow Summit

I was up at Big Bear for the opening day of Westridge. It's considered an 'intermediate' trail, but it's definitely more advanced than that! Of the three runs at Summit, this is the longest and most 'flowy'. It starts with a killer curved wooden bridge, into a steep right handed berm, followed ... Read More »

equivalent of ranger summit-strange brew?

Hi, I'm a beginner biker. Before the flood hit I rode ranger summit to strange brew in bragg creek and really enjoyed it. Could someone recommend a similar ride in a location that wasn't hit by floods (banff?) I'm looking for something where you'll get a good workout going uphill, followed by a do ... Read More »
