Oakley makes some sweet shorts as well, I've got a pair (not sure of the name) that have lasted for 2 years and are still awesome.

Nema's! Hands down the BEST baggies available! The Stone's run about $50, and the Crown Jewels are about $75. I've seen them at www.pricepoint.com

Watch out for any thing marked as made with coolmax material. Coolmax? "Frozen bits" would be a more apt name. In the height of a heat wave, with sweat pouring off you, this material will still keep you cool, so imagine how cold the material is in winter.

I always go to a well stocked shop that has about 7 or 8 different manufacturers stocked, and have a plentiful supply of sizes within those manufacturers. For Comfort I always try on at least two different manufacturers within the price range I want, and then once I have settles on the colour and manufacturer, I then try on 3 or 4 pairs in the size That fits. By going to this extent, I normally find the one pair in the shop that I am Comfortable with. The last pair I bought, were Goretex, and can vouch for this named brand being long lasting and comfortable, but not cheap.

I am addicted to bicycles...is this a problem? www.spokejunkies.com

Trek 820(when you pay $200 for a decent mountain bike, you don't worry about breaking stuff)
Singlespeed Concord road


Some of us may now have the money to get what we want, but I know in my case, it has taken a long time to get to this stage. I started Mountain biking in 1989 with a 50 secondhand 10 speed nasty, because that was all I could afford with a family and mortgage. I have just progressed up to several decent bikes, but that has cost me. I don't drink, Don't smoke, don't go out much. All I have time for is work, Gym twice a week, and riding the bike on Sundays. By the way, get a family and mortgage and you will worry about breaking anything on any bike, and the trek 800 that was my first respectable bike in 91 cost the equivalent of $450.
