Club Ride Apparel's designs are often subtle solutions to cycling's biggest conundrum: What to wear in the saddle when you'll also have to be in social situations. Not the Quick Drop Women's Bib Liner. It's a rather pronounced solution to a problem that we've all experienced; namely, the difficulty of natural breaks while fully kitted up. The design is meant to be worn as baselayer, but it ensures that you won't have to disrobe in order to handle business.
Instead of a system of bulky clips or hook-and-loop connections of questionable security, the Quick Drop Liner solves the pit-stop conundrum with the humble zipper. Unzipping the Quick Drop lets the back of the shorts open up without requiring the removal of your jersey or jacket. Business attended to, the liner zips closed, the baggies come up, and you're back on course.
The Quick Drop is furnished with Club Ride's top chamois, which the company rates for rides of four hours or longer, with emphasis on "longer." The brand may present itself as a recreationalist outfit, but the chamois' combination of dual-density padding and a gel insert prove that Club Ride is no stranger to the demands of long, strenuous days spent testing lines in the backcountry.

- Q & A
Great shorts for longer rides...
I've worn these on a few longer rides, 3+ hours, and they were super comfortable. I had the same issue another review describes with the zippers coming down, but as long as I "lock" the zipper in place by positioning it down, I haven't had any issues. I would recommend these, especially for longer rides.
Zippers don't stay up on both sides.
- Fit: True to size
Returning immediately. Don't bother as the zippers have slippage and simply bending down to put on my shoes caused the zippers to slip at least 2 inches. Can't imagine these won't slip even further when in the riding position. The chamois is perfect, too bad the drop tail is completely worthless.
