 "Their cheapest MTB shorts are $140 USD and go up to $225"
you can go ahead and f*ck off with this, is this the mtb arm of Rapha or something?!
for shorts?!
  • + 29
 No shit, I usually don't plan to pay $140 for a pair of shorts described as "simple and plain", the damned things had better fellate me for that price.
  • + 19
 I don't understand why "MTB specific" clothing is so damn expensive. So I just ride in normal gym shorts & shirt. My "kit" cost me about $30.
  • + 7
 I'm sure they will also sell you some "enduro-specific organic free trade snake-oil based mountain bike shorts washing machine cleaning solution" as well for only 59 Euro's per french oz to boot.

 @boxxerace: $69
well played

 Just go to aliexpress and buy the shorts straight from the source for 11 bucks minus a logo. I recently got a pair that are a dead ringer for those giros.
  • + 7
 Bad choice of words."Cheapest" should be "least expensive". No shorts above $40 are cheap.
  • + 2
 @huntstyle: it's mostly due to the fact MTB clothing is often small-run. A lot of the manufacturers just aren't getting their numbers high enough in their factory orders to get a great price point. Also lots of private label, IE some factory in south korea has a bunch of pre made units you can buy and label with your own stuff. We still have a lot of crappy fabrics because they are designed to primarily hold color well (thanks skittle-puke trends from moto). I still prefer cut off dickies to any riding short I've used. Look at high end running fabrics. Best jersey I've ever used (by a longshot) is SportHill's Temptech longsleeve. Plain colors, affordable price, and soooooo much more comfortable than anything in mtb. BUT good luck getting crazy colors prints in that type of fabric.

 @WestwardHo: all my TLDs MOTO shorts are from Aliexpress. Took me a while to find out they were fakes, a website was explaining the differences between the real ones and the fake ones, but it is hard to see. They last and are resistant, and for 30USD, could not find better.

 @zoobab2: what was the difference?

 Just buy some board shorts on clearance at the end of summer. 10-20 dollars a pair and they're made of the same stuff as these.
  • + 2
 I recently discovered Dickies Fit Flex or something like that for $18! They're durable, super stretchy, and are long enough they cover 2/3 of my knee pads so they don't slide down in a crash. My fancy riding shorts haven't seen a day of use this year. Sizing is all over the place. Some of mine are labeled 36, some are labeled 40. Just gotta try before you buy.

 Don't forget some LGBT and KKK stickers on your bike, rock some Payots with black hat and scream Allahu akbar before every jump.

 Guys who don't like what's on offer above, can you do me a favour and check out the kit shown in my profile? www.pinkbike.com/u/E9G/album/E9G-Kit It'd be good to get your thoughts as I'm not a fan of super loud kit either, but I think super plain/black jerseys are boring so I've made a couple of designs that are somewhere in between.

We're a small rider-owned business operating out of Scotland and have been producing a small line of jerseys for a couple of years now. I started out doing custom helmet paint and branched out into jerseys as there always seems to be a bit of a backlash when TLD and the bigger companies show their new gear. Of course you can't please everyone but hopefully what we've got on offer might appeal to some of you!

There's just a couple of designs on offer at the moment but if it's popular enough we'll keep making more.

 That universe jersey is pretty cool looking! Might have to pick one up...

 I like these. I prefer solid, boring colors but I would do these over most of the flashy kits posted above.

 Leatt = Out of Stock Alert

Seriously...has anyone had success ordering their gear in neutral colors...ever?
I want to run their stuff, but I try to buy them and in the Shopping Cart of their site, anything I throw in to match is out of stock. Has been that way for a really long time.

Used to only Sombrio did this to me.
  • + 2
 I ordered black DBX pants from Leatt they told me five week back order so I waited because they are the only ones who have slim solid black pants, I call them six weeks later only to find out they changed they're mind and didnt make anymore after all. All i got is sorry we discontinued those pants last week!

 There seems to be a growing list of bike brands that advertise new stuff and don't actually ever sell it.

 @rockchomper: ixs and Kenny make black slim pants too

 Are we all ignoring the Vaude Rain Suit on purpose and I didn't get the memo?

There are only 2 very specific circumstances that a onesie should be worn on a bike;
1) Someone of the roadie persuasion who specialises in going very fast with no-one else around e.g. Velodrome events or TTs, where aero is the name of the game
2) Drunken antics e.g. MTB stag-dos / birthday rides etc, where said clothing should be cheap and ridiculous.

If I needed an extra 5 mins of faff when taking a nature poo I'd wear bib shorts under my baggies, for a fraction of the price
  • + 1
 Oh yes, yes we are unintentionally and now intentionally ignoring the onesie! Wow.
  • + 1
 Mechanics and other trades workers wear onesies, except they call them coveralls (in Canada).
As much as I laugh at that onesie, there would be something pretty awesome about finishing a wet/muddy ride and shedding that nasty cocoon. ta-da - all dry for the ride home!

 Even the manaquins look like tool bags in MTB clothes.

 Sweet..., a whole bunch of kit I want nothing to do with. #pajamaparty #boots&pant&boots&pants

 Y'all need to chill on the anti-weed talk. Weed never killed anyone. It only wants to enslave our minds and spread it's seed. My mind is too strong for it to effect me, thats why I can smoke a ton of weed and that's why I'm definitely buying that loose suit. ????????????
  • + 6
 Pajama partaaaaay!!
  • + 3
 Mtb apparel is hilarious. Meanwhile, Target is killing it with basic performance garments(4 way stretch, minor logos, breathable, cheap, basic colorways).
  • + 3
 I'm not going to lie, I like the beer shirt.... the whole outfit is a bit much though. That shirt with some non-$180 shorts would work for me.
  • + 1
 A beer onsie would be on point! And make it with some fresh new fabric that has the beer in motion sloshing around while you ride.
  • + 2
 I like the Vaude clothing the best out what we see here. Giro in second. Little bit of color, lots of stretch. And if their clothing is as good as their backpacks it should hold up for a while.
  • + 1
 A real pity that the journalist didn't explain the whole story with Vaude. Out of all those kits they are the only ones eco-friendly, not made by a 5 y.o kid paid 1€/h.

 Want to tell everyone you're the guy making all the braking bumps in the berms at the bike park? Buy that weed kit.

 Fox Ranger shorts FTW. Cheap on special, comfy, tough, come with a padded liner and can get them in black.
  • + 1
 Rangers are great, all the pockets are usable! Usualy mtb short pockets can take nothing more than a pair of extra gloves before they start swinging around because the are to lown to the knee on a wide cut leg. Really like the -18 Ranger cargo shorts.
