I bought a pair of some Madison Tempest shorts few weeks ago. I hadn't really had a chance to properly test them until this morning, when the rain was really annoying (small drops with strong wind). Normally in a scenario like this one I used to arrive to work with all the equipment down there (you know...) wet and freezing cold. It wasn't too comfortable in a work place that is not suitable for cyclists at all (no decent changing rooms, showers or drying room). But this morning I felt like a new chapter in my life has begun! It was all dry (after an hour of riding in the rain) and ready to accept a fresh pair of undies (after dying off the lower legs with paper towels...)!
Why I didn't discover the waterproof shorts few years ago?
Marin Indian Fire Trail '93. Build to be ridden, not to be watched. Stolen - not forgotten! Awesome bike...
Kona Cinder Cone 2012 - it will be retro in few years time.
