So I’ve just got one week left to get everything together for my big trip to Japan. My travel bike is fully decked out for touring now….except for the gearing.
This came in from our contact form
Yesterday I met some wonderful individuals who really made my day. I was out for a bike ride with my girlfriend and I ended up popping a tire at the north end of Mercer Island. I was about to call my husband to pick me up when members of the Bike Hugger team kindly stopped and helped me out. Not only did they patch and pump my tire for me, they took the time to teach me how to do it in case it happens again in the future. It was so nice of them to stop their ride to help me out! THANK YOU!
It was our pleasure.
Pam recently tested the BlackBottoms Argento shorts. The Argento is a women-specific short with a reflective panel for maximum visibility. Pam wore the Argentos during her commute and thought the reflective design is a great concept, especially when working late and leaving after the sun has gone down.
She thought the 4-way stretch-pad was comfortable and the short-cut leg fit her thighs just right.
Her only criticism was the material used for the shorts. For lack of better words, it was slick and plasticky. I noticed the blend BlackBottoms sent us (86% nylon/14%s pandex) is different than the blend they’re selling now (79% nylon 21%spandex) and that may account for the shininess.
If you’re riding at night, on dim-lit streets, the Argentos are a good choice.
