Summer Apparel Roundup - 8 Men's Kits Reviewed
@meagerdude: Luckily I have a pretty good alteration shop near the house, and mostly bought previous year's gear on close-out so there's room in the budget for adding proper waist-band closure so my older MTB shorts are all back in action. Since discovering Columbia's quick dry PFG shorts at the outlet store for $15, it's hard to bring myself to buy actual MTB brand gear anymore. @UtahBikeMike: That's what TLD said when I talked to their guy at a trade-show, so I bought a size bigger, now not only to the snaps come undone, they'll fall off even on the rare occasion that snaps aren't coming undone. I've literally never seen snaps on any pair of shorts or pants outside the MTB world, and I believe there's a reason for that.

A button would work, one of the riveted on metal buttons like a pair of jeans or Carhartts, those ratchets are pretty nice too. A button is just so damn simple and I've never once had a button come undone. Go OTB and skid to a stop on your chest, your shorts fall off. Wear them too many times and wear out the snap, your shorts fall off. Reach for something at a weird angle, your shorts fall off. Sit weird. your shorts fall off. catch your shorts on a cactus, your shorts fall off. Take too deep of a breath, your shorts fall off. You know what shorts don't fall off while riding? My Columbia hiking shorts with a damn button. Snaps are complete garbage.

Old Navy performance activewear, snag it on sale, usually $4-5/shirt, and available in all the best enduro specific colorways like neon baby-shit, also available in weird colors like "blue" and "black" if you're a real freak.

Why do MTB shorts have snaps on the waistband? No other shorts have snaps, because snaps suck. Yet somehow, when shorts are neon colored and $100, they think they'll not suck.

Tracey Hannah - Interview
@tinfoil: It's a valid question, though it likely doesn't need an answer. The truth of the matter is that Rachael had been on a winning streak like none before, and when she won, it was by a huge margin. With her gone, somebody had to win. What's interesting and most important when talking about Ft Bill is that she gapped the field at Ft Bill the way Rachael normally does. Maybe she'd win, maybe she'd have gotten 2nd, but it's clear she's capable to Atherton levels of speed. I really hope she can keep it up and win against a healthy Rachael to seal her legacy. She's a female Stevie Smith, super fun rider to watch, clearly loves riding bikes, capable of winning any time, anywhere. Hopefully she'll win some rainbow stripes in Cairns this year.

Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
I don't know who's in charge of paint over there at Giant, but give them a raise. They've been knocking it out of the park with the colors schemes on Giants, and even more so on Livs. Good deal for what you're getting too.

The Campaign for Worse Bicycles – Opinion
Can we just have shitty derailleur again? I love tinkering with my bike, tuning deraileilurs is the most stress relieving task there is, but I never get to do it anymore. All I ever seem to do anymore is change brake pads and tires. That and a little personality in how a bike rides and I'm a happy camper. Different strokes for different folks, but I dig a bike that's a bit shit on paper, but puts a smile on my face.
