    Props to Hammer Nutrition

    I ordered a pair of XXL Hammer shorts for $25.00, I also got the 15% off discount for new customers. I mentioned how much I like there products and they sent me 14 free samples of various items. I spent $29.00 and got about $50 worth of products.

    btw I love there sustained energy for long rides, mix a little gel in for flavor and i feel terrific.

    That's great! They usually throw a couple things at ya', but they really took good care of you there. I got some samples, tried them, liked them, and now I order from them. They still add a couple samples to every order I've made.

    Have not tried Sustained Energy, but I really like Perpetuem & Endurolytes on the metrics I've done. I use Heed, and Gels on shorter length stuff. They sent me a couple packs of Recoverite with my last order, so I decided to try one after The Red Flannel Metric last November. My legs and body felt great the next day, like I wasn't even on a bike for 65 miles the day prior.

    I also have the bib shorts & they are my all time favorite to wear period.

    I've heard good things about the Hammer bibs, and I live or die by Endurolyte caps on my century and longer rides, but everything else Hammer makes has me doubled over and puking about 5 minutes after I drink it. I can't figure out why.

    I love the sustain with gel mixed in for flavor, I use it for rides over 3 hours. I also use recoverite religiously. I ordered the shorts since they didn't have the bibs in xxl.

    How do you use Endurolyte caps? I have problems with cramping and would like to try this product. I have tried gels but should I be using Endurolyte instead? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    I've got two pair of Hammer bibs and love them. IMO they're better than the aerotech bibs which seem to also be popular with the clyde crowd. Also, their customer service is awesome. You talk to an actual person right away and they're willing to solve your problem. One of my favorite vendors.
    But I predict the Internet will soon go spectacularly supernova and in 1996 catastrophically collapse.

    One of my riding partners swears by the stuff. If I ever get a job, I may try it.

    I wonder how long it will take them, to go back to the old style and manufacturer??

    I won't buy (and advertise) their new ones; but, sure would buy some more old ones....

    I'm curious about these "cheaper" bibs. My last three bib purchases have been Specialized, Pearl Izumi, and Etxe Ondo. All have VERY comfortable chamois and all were over $100. I’d like to see how the chamois compare?

    They are actually not cheap they are velor bibs(not cheap) that have been marked down to what seems like wholesale price because they have hammer's name on the legs. I got them even cheaper because they were the last size in stock of last years edition. A lot of people don't like the 09's because of the colors.

    I liked the old ones, by Voler, but I don't even like the looks of the new ones, by Castelli....

    Good buy on the old ones, wished they would have had my size.....

    Unfortunately they were the shorts not bibs, but for 25 bucks beggars can't be choosers. Plus the 15% off new customer and all the free samples.

    I swear by Endurolyte's for cramping. I just mix 1-2 scoops (depending on heat) from their powdered version into each bottle of Heed and rarely suffer cramps anymore.
