    Social distancing here so no shopping in store....but I need some new bike clothing. Looking for baggies and a couple jerseys. Running POC VPD air knee pads and would like something that fits well with them (and no gap while seated) but is not quite as baggie as traditional "baggies." What do you like?

    Handup gloves baggies. No question. More casual pant but super stretchy. And price is better than most. 10/10

    They also have jerseys that are sweet. Big fan.

    Not sure about shorts, as I just ride with some old work pants, lol. But for jerseys, I have a few Loose Riders jerseys that my wife got me and they are pretty rad (also on sale until the 29th of March), really breathable, dry fast (it gets hot in texas during the summer) and some really cool art work.

    Not a 1up rack and for four bikes, not three, but other than that... :p

    I opted for a platform instead of a bike-centric hitch carrier so I could use it for other things. Now that I have a truck, that's less of an issue, though.

    I've looked at their stuff before. IDK, the casual nature of it throws me off. Not what I'm looking for. I can drink beer afterwards in a purpose built technical baggie. I can see it's appeal for bike to work commuters and the like.

    I’d like a pic of this too. We fill up our bed with four bikes, so I’m going to need at least a three-bike rack for our future family camping trips, and 1up looks like the ticket.

    I recently purchased Troy Lee Designs Flowline shorts and they are pretty sweet. I have some TLD Raid knee pads on order so I cannot comment on how compatible they are with pads, yet.

    They are my favorite and I own Patagonia's Dirt Craft, Zoic Ether and Fox Ranger shorts.

    that’s fair, it’s the same material, just without the unnecessary length. But to each their own. I personally don’t want it past my knees

    I'm so jelly. We have 3 inches of fresh trail destroying snow as of this morning. :(

    And the ski resorts are all closed so it's not even a win on that front.

    lol. snowshoeing up is about the same pace as touring up. it's coming down that is the suck.
    You ahve to dedicate yourself to getting your setup done. I never got my touring setup done until I told myself that I was gonna do it for sure this year. took a little while too, looking for sales and working through connections and stuff. but got it done and got my aiare lvl 1 done as well. it'll serve me well for the years to come. hopefully.

    Honestly, I meant to, but I want to get my avy1 before I do, and theyre always during the week mostly, so it got back burnered.

    Id def ski down if I snowshoed up, I dont feel like blowing out my knees and hamstrings trying to come down on shoes.

    My current shorts are like an inch too short and constantly hang on the top edge of the knee pads which is somewhat bothersome. So I was actually looking to go longer and also narrower fit I think. Plus it's dumb but they look goofy with a stripe of PNW ghost skin between the pad and shorts.

    Zoic Ether shorts are perfect for me. Sit about mid knee and still cover the pads when pedalling. Baggy, but not too baggy. Def not as slim fit as some baggies though.
