At some point hitting the gym is an enjoyable way to improve your performance on the bike, ski, whatever, and these shorts are perfect for the "fitness thing" in your life. They stretch well so they don't ride up for whole body movements, and they feature a comfortable liner as well. They are a little shiny, which is why for me they have become a gym short, as opposed to an all arounder. But if you don't mind the look, they are really comfortable and would be great for trail runs, hikes, bouldering, and whatever else.

I think with a flacket it is key that the flannel pattern itself is something that you would wear with a lot of different pants / shirts, so that it stays versatile. Marmot nailed the flannel color options on this one (IMO). They also threw in SUPER soft sherpa fleece in the body, and legit poly insulation. This is not the flacket you find at your local farmer supply store. This thing is warm! Honestly way too hot to wear indoors in most situations, but perfect for cool fall days, or dry winter days. Sizing runs pretty large. I am 6'5 and 210lbs, and prefer a more relaxed (but not sloppy) fit. For me the large fit spot on, and I would have been swimming in an XL.

Much easier to find a tapered steer tube suspension fork these days, and if you pick up a steel hardtail with a straight head tube, this is what you will need to get rolling. So far I have thrown one of these in a Surly Instigator and an All City Electric Queen, no problems on either one. Cane creek 40 series is a solid value and solid performance.

This is my go to shirt for pretty much everything other than casual / around town. Mountain biking, running, hiking, hitting them gym, the shirt is perfect. I am 6'5 and 210 and the XL fits spot on. The material is super soft and comfy and I find it breathes really well even when its 90+ degrees out. Probably the best thing about this shirt is it really really does resist smell. Judge me if you will, but I will give this shirt a few uses before a wash. Just hang it up to dry and its good to go for next time.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I did a back to back test with these bad boys, actual clipless shoes, and an old pair of vans. I honestly forgot at one point that these weren't clipped in and tried to pull up on the pedal in a sprint; they are that sticky. They are much stiffer and offer more support than a traditional skate shoe, and the grip on the pedals is soo confidence inspiring and nice its night and day. Highly Highly recommend. I'm making the switch from clipless after (among other things) falling down the spine on the Wasatch Crest Trail due to not getting a foot out. No need to add insult to injury by being attached to your bike and having it attack you on your way down as well If you need further inspiration to switch to flats, check out the relatively common injury on google wherein which peoples handlebars rupture their femoral artery after their bike attacks them from being clipped in.
