    define hike

    fine to hike your bike up a hill or w/e, but i wouldn't wanna being hiking for miles in em

    (also imo its easier to hike in spandes style shorts compared to the baggies, I just wear board shorts over my spandex when i mtn bike same concept as the 2in1s just better)

    100% uncomfortable

    it is uncomfortable to hike with another kind of mtb gear on.
    I once had to hike 30 mins in the dark due to a flat ... didn't bring a spare and almost ran out of charge on my light....
