Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
I have a heart made of glass.
And a head made of wood.
I have a voice like a silver bell
And I seal my ears with candle wax so that's all I hear.
mr. T.... I have a ti mountain bike.
And I just got a carbon fiber road frame last week...
Grant, go over to forums.goingprepared.com and register as Reggie.
Then everyone will think you're my boyfriend and you can PM me as Catriona, then noone here will realize that Catriona = Cataboo and we can talk!
Then we'll have a secret alert system in place that NOONE will be on to.
... is just as powerful as Gold Fever.
Trust me, I'm seeing the symptoms.
I'm still not convinced. We're already not being sneaky enough.
Grant, it's okay, we wouldn't tell them that you did it. Then they wouldn't be jealous.
I'd pretend I missed it and cry in the forum.
Ha - see you'd already make a better quality control officer than anyone at Adidas!
I'm going to need some photos to thoroughly assess the problem.
@Mr. T: Exactly. "Is my butt showing?" is not what I should be thinking about when I'm descending a canyon at 35mph.
"It might be my imagination."- even so, if it succeeds in taking an unnecessary hand off the bar, it's no good anyway.
Just MY experience, but I am 0 for 5 with Adidas; never fits extremely, expertly well. I rarely have the energy to leave neg-leaning reviews (eventhough I laid waste to the Sunline saddle), but for the sake of many, I am gaining.
Everybody else would get jealous Cat, then I would have to make a special exception for everybody. Plus, you don't even know if I'm a stalker type or not, you can't just give out your digits to anybody these days.
It's not your imagination. Those were one of the pieces of gear I hated -- and I wrote a scathing review thusly.
I'm sorry, but "Is the rise high enough that a cyclist's rear will not be exposed?" should be on the product testing short list for any company attempting to manufacture cycling clothing.
I also bought a pair of shorts where the panels managed be placed oddly enough to accentuate things it shouldn't. Just weird all around.
I'd rather spend a little more and have comfortable, flattering, and quality pieces.
I bought 2 pairs of the men's Adistar flow bibs and they both came apart at the seams after wearing them once each. It appears that this particular product may have quality issues. This product appears multiple times on geartrade citing similar issues with separation at the seams.
I'm Catriona, so doing favors for me is okay. Ask around.
Cycling was, I've just bought a pair of the 3/4 length adidas cycling tights on here... They work. I wouldn't say I love them, but they weren't all that expensive and they're a little longer.
However, I do feel like my crack is showing when i wear them, so I tend to reach back every so often and try to pull 'em up.
It might be my imagination.
So, I've bought two pieces of Adidas cycling gear on here and returned both. I'm convinced it's designed by people who don't actually cycle and/or don't know how to design for female cyclists.
I'm now following a personal philosophy of not buying anymore Adidas brand cycling gear.
Anyone else have problems with their Adidas gear? Is it just me?
I might get called out for playing favorites if I did that Cataboo. I'll let everybody know in the forum the day that they're coming back.
Those look like really nice bibs. I'm have a pretty hard time not hitting that big BUY NOW button.
Grant - I'll give you my phone #, call me when the 49 is back :)
I skipped the gym this morning, so I needed something to get my heartrate up.
