Picked up a few of these as stocking stuffers....carry an extra tube or two anyway but you just never know when you have to be someone's knight in shining armor...cool case with the HucknRoll logo so people get educated....
Got this for the girlfriend for Christmas...it is replacing an "everything in the bottom-no pockets or hydration bladder" canvas pack. This also helps replace the "you never take me riding" complaint I have been getting since summer...holds water, pump, tube, tools, gloves, glasses, raincoat and helmet...the Bear did nice for his lady...it is lightweight, has a rain-cover and is a pretty red because for her fashion has a place on the trail.
Very well made, has a pimp lining and is big enough to fit my big old melon-head.
Looks great wearing it forward or backwards and is at home with the 1% as well as the neighborhood thugs!
Girlfriend says..."You spend too much money on those devil worshiping bike sites"...I Say..."C'mon girl I got you something nice too, look a nice shirt that supports your Irish family roots, small bike shops and your shapely figure"...
Roadkill shoots and scores!
These are tough shorts...I was a bit leary at first, but totally sold after the first ride. Good stretch, decent liner and pockets galore.
The rear skewer was a bit too short for my current set-up...the chrome looked cool but performance was needed more over style...bit the bullet and paid more for the Salsas.
Nice shorts, more of a walking/hiking around short than a biking short if only because of the pleats on the cargo pockets catching onto everything that sticks out in the woods, trail, supermarket, etc...
Their strength seems to be a weakness (to me at least)...lightweight canvas duck material that is super-tough...so no ripping...just sudden stopping. It has only happened a few times but I felt it deserved mentioning.
I do have to say however that the length and crotchroom are perfect and offer a nice
compliment to my "get-away sticks" and a SCRAM
ankle bracelet should I be wearing one.
Its a tough world out there sometimes...and sometimes you're going to fall. Sometimes that fall is going to be on your head...either full-on or a glancing blow...let me say that the Giro Hex besides looking awesome (mine is the Camo and I already had the matching bandana!) this brainbucket is a real winner! Light-weight but really well constructed and all the adjustment points to make it fit me personally with enough room to velcro in speakers inside so I dont have to wear headphones.
Not looking forward to taking a shot to the noggin...confident that this helmet can take the
