NOS: New Old Stock Items Available
Some Sizes are available at a reduced price.
NOS Items are brand new, but have been in stock for a longer period, and have older logos. The only potential downside is that the iron-on logos harden as they age, so may crack and deteriote prematurely. Other than that caveat, they are identical in design, function and construction to the regular stock items.
Available with a PRO bib top for an additional $25 upon Special Request.
*Please add a Comment when placing your order requesting a bib top, and allow us 3-5 business days to make and ship your order.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. I saw a review of your products and they talked about your chamois being thinner than others. Can you explain to me the differences in your chamois inserts and how they work?

3. I recently finished a 460 mile bike ride in six days. I developed saddle sores that got infected and the last couple of days were miserable. I'm trying to find a solution and everybody has ideas. I'm currently trying a new saddle and have adjusted the way I sit in the saddle.

4. What if my new shorts don't fit, what is your return policy?

7. My shorts are showing wear and collecting crud in strange places. Can you help me?

8. I'm going to ride the "Ride the Rockies" this year in your shorts. Do I need to add any lubricant? Will that harm the shorts?
