    bought the impact liners as soon as announced, ZOIC makes quality stufff, haven’t tested them yet in a crash. Feel strange at first compared to normal ZOIC tights but you forget about them quickly. Don’t have a problem with the length. Shorter is better for liners, they don’t need to be shorts length.

    Has anyone tried a “wicking” offroad jersey that doesn’t get saturated with sweat and actually works? I can’t seem to find one.

    • myke says:

      yes, mission workshop. They make a few T-shits that are really nice. The one i have is mesh. it takes a lot to get to the saturation point.

    “You get what you pay for”. Umm, no, you don’t. The cycling tax is just as obnoxious in clothing as it is everywhere else. To each their own, but for $65 I can buy a top-shelf 8-panel lycra short or liner and a trek short (which has the same material and features outlined in the article). $100 for a shell short with no liner? Nope.

    • myke says:

      im not sure what you are talking about. i have owned pretty every major brand shell and they are NOT the same. you get what you pay for. Bibs and liners are the most important and what you need to spend the most on.

  • babyblue says:

    I think generally if you stick to a name brand, rather than get the cheapest random thing on amazon, you’ll be alright. Recently got Club Ride shorts for $35 from Sierra trading post and they’re great

  • AC says:

    If they’re past your knees are they still shorts?

  • abe says:

    EBAY gear: purchased biking shorts from china ebay….. great fit, with elastic panels so the shorts don’t get caught up on the seat, removable padding, NYLON stitching , have had them over 1yr and still as good as new. Less expensive does not mean garbage.

    1st i purchase one pair to check them out then purchase 4 more for the long haul.. $16 ea.

    Top notch clothing right here. Grabbed an oro jacket earlier this year, its insane in the membrane. This looks like a nice mid-weight option.

    Always wondered why bike helmuts cost so much and they are not subsidized by the government. They are happy to spend taxpayer money on much worse/needless/evil things (aka, “defense”) than helmuts, which, I’m betting, would end up saving everyone money (including the government) in the long run due to less injuries, medical bills, insurance payouts, etc.
