Ok, went riding today, with a 13 year old kid that im getting into cycling. He doesnt want to go, but I get his parents to make him. Once he is out there, he has a great time, but his limit is up to about 20 miles, which isnt too bad for a couch potato. My problem comes in during the ride.
Im off my bike, just mounting up to ride on, and he doesnt bother to pay attention and rides right into my back, ripping my bib shorts. Now $70 may not seem like a lot to some, but I have better thing to spend my cash on than throwing away my shorts. Its a small rip, and its under the chamois, so that my butt doesnt hang out. Can these kinds of shorts be mended? and if they can, what type of thread or patch should I use and where can I get it?
Thanks for any advice.
