    I have a couple of those on my steel ride and they are sweet... I like that you can bend them in a little to have more grip. Not cheap though; that's the premium for cages, 'cept maybe carbon.

    I think you have a self torture addiction! Haha
    I prefer bibs over the padded shorts that come with the baggy mtb shorts. Bibs make life way more comfortable and you can wear them on their own when it is hot out. That is if you’re down for the spandex life.

    my current favorites are some sportful bodyfit pro but the straps are on their last leg...

    Here's a downlow one to add to the list, it's officially unofficial... The Cougar Slayer. I've wanted to complete this for years. One year I actually made it a goal, then quickly realized it wasn't in the card that year. I needed to be in better shape. Custom Belt Buckle included...
    It's also self-run, so you can do it on your own in a window of time. Just needs to be completed and Strava file sent. And it's free.

    http://thecougarslayer.com/ride/quick-course-description/

    67.5 miles, 8500 up, 10,500 down. You have 24 hours. Finish in under 8 and you get to choose your custom buckle.

    That’s pretty wild, even harder not doing it as an organized ride. Sweet buckle too.

    I use those lezyne cages almost exclusively. Held up to several runs down "The Whole Enchilada" which gut checks all your stuff. :notsure: The Specialized Zee cages are sweet too.

    I ride with a hydro pack, makes for a softer landing on full rotation indo and when there aren't any sage brush to destroy near bye. riding without it I feel naked and vulnerable...

    Finally getting back out after three weeks.
    I had a major off, and a good wake up call. Riding a familiar trail, pushing it, and came around a blind corner into a fallen tree that broke across the trail.
    Handlebar smashed on the right side, ejected at roughly 30 mph into the other side of the split tree. I missed getting literally gutted by a giant spike about 7” in diameter by blind luck. Smashed my face and head into the trunk, missing branches in my eyes and face again by blind luck. My leg got crushed between the bike and trunk of the tree. I though I broke my femur.
    I was unable to walk for a good five days, bruised and battered on my face and leg.
    Like a jackass I didn’t go to the docs because I was healing, although slowly. Now, three weeks later I’m finally back to riding at 70%, with pain.
    I wanted to share the story to remind everyone here that sometimes we push it, sometimes we know we’re over that edge. And all it takes is a split second to change your life. I was so goddam lucky. I was riding solo, late in the evening, on trails no one rides. If I had hit that spike... I wouldn’t be here. And it was close, like inches close.
    And today, well, it was magical. Perfect weather, new bike, and I took it easy. But I had to go back, and ride the trail again. Because.

    This is the worst part of the whole story. I remember back when I was 17 I tried to leapfrog a pool cue. Long story short I ended up a shish kabob! I was fucked up for months with catheters and such. For the next four years I would stare at that damn thing and tell myself I could do it again and make it. Because??? By the grace of God I never did try again, but that damn pool cue gnawed at me for years. o_O

    Def had some of my worst offs on those familiar trails where you draw that razor just a little closer to yourself. Hunter S Thompson has a great line about it.
