Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
third time's a charm.....
Oh, I have the physique for the PI slim fit stuff. Even regular jerseys look big on me, despite my slovenly eating habits.
Then I noticed "slim fit". Not with this body... Im not exactly a fata__ but Im sure NO ONE wants to see me in a slim fit
Odiggity, unfortunately some of us live in dry climates and mud can be hard to come by. Sure, they get dusty, but it doesn't cover up the color so much.
The dealio with these bike shirts, that isn't mentioned, is that they are SPF 50, or 150, or something like that.
So, it'll help you keep that ghoulish white skin, when you're out on the trails...
If it weren't for the pockets I would be all over this jersey. Don't get me wrong, I like pockets...but it just looks bad on this jersey the way they did it.
Most of the time, when I check CL, I find something I'd consider buying- that blue PI jersey you put up late last night is on its way to my door- but it seems like the weekday crowd gets the same horrific Oakley clothing and disparate parts of the Saint brake lines. Maybe you guys should just avoid weekday sales?
D'oh. Too slow for the computer. I blame my FF plugin, which still shows the computer. Grrr...
To all the crybaby neon green haters:
If you would get muddy sometimes the brightness will go away. Get off the pavement and don't be afraid of some rain.
I see the number bars going down- alright! Intrepid, fashion to the wind souls you are!!(or smart hunting season riders)
I will salute you with due respect and admiration when I see you out there railing!
when you put these up tommorrow as you undoubtedly will, include a 6oz container of fabric dye - they'll sell like hot cakes
It's really too bad about the color- these are great, bomber shorts. I wish i could assuage the whole situation with something like- "If you are busy blazing single track alone in a forest, do your shorts have any color?". And as I have said before, you should have seen last year's red with fluorescent pocket 3.6's "thrown on" SAC. Makes these MUCH more bearable. Yea, I know but trust me.
It it is a shame that Oakley's infamous color/graphic dept. can contaminate such a great piece of gear. The shorts are one of O's best items; they are above and beyond any I've owned. Certainly at this price.
But as in most things consumer wise; It's fashion over function (I can say this more easily since I got the all black ones 2 weeks ago).
Now if there was some poly-spray paint they could sell with O's badly designed color schemes...
While I don't ednorse writing off Oakley products en masse, I do strongly endorse the destruction of all of these shorts.
Maybe if I were riding on the freeway at midnight with a new moon, power outage, and full cloud cover I would consider wearing these. I fail to see any other scenario where it would be acceptable.
I'll buy them for $5 + shipping, no more.
Speaking of - did you hear about this?
That joke is either in really poor taste, or just really poorly timed. . . . I'm going to guess it's the second one.
Those shorts attract bears while you're riding.
