Anyone own anything from them? I'm specifically looking at the Rhythm Comp short sleeve jersey and Rhythm shorts with liner. I haven't gone to my Trek store as it's in another city so I was just wondering about opinions before making the trip there.

I have race and race lite shorts and they are the best shorts I have ever ridden. The pad is amazing and better that shorts that cost much more. Jerseys are also excellent although I cannot comment on the clothes you have listed.

Hmm. I know a lot of people use Fox clothing but I like the idea of just sticking with Bontrager stuff as much as possible. Right now I just bike in shorts and a t-shirt so I want to get something more along the lines of mountain biking gear while not spending a lot.

I have a pair of the shorts and love them. I got a pretty good deal on them from my lbs because I got them at the same time I bought my bike, but now that I have them, I would have definitely paid more. If you arent in a rush, keep your eyes on this site www.chainlove.com I've gotten some pretty sweet stuff off there, you just gotta keep checking what they have up.

Yea I'll definitely be getting proper gear prior to hitting a trail. Right now I'm just going down bike trails or the road to get in shape, but once I go on a proper trail I'll want the proper gear. I'll keep that site in mind. Thanks

no pockets could be good...

I thought about picking up a comp short sleeve jersey, but it doesn't have pockets on the back. This is a deal breaker for me.
That makes me more inclined to get the jersey. I am almost always riding wearing a hydration pack, so pockets on the back are superfluous. I would prefer no stitching, seams, or extraneous material between me and the pack.

I bought the TWR kit and RL shoes... The jersey and bibs are amazing! Great product. The RL shoes are good, the Esoles is a little gimicky and uncomfortable. The shoes are very large volume. Be prepared to shim them with a sockliner or something.

Whatever the garment you get, I think you'll be pleased with the quality.
