the following is a review of the sugoi rs shorts and bib shorts by my friend krista who just started her own blog at crazy for cross. she is an avid road cyclist, mountain biker and most recently, cross cyclist. she just started racing cross last year and has found her calling. i will soon say, i knew her when...
I have been a fan of Sugoi cycling apparel and accessories for about 4 years. Specifically, I think their RS shorts are top notch. I have tried Castelli, Cannondale & Pearl Izumi but they are all sitting at the bottom of some drawer. I was both excited and a bit nervous honestly when I heard about the new RSE line Sugoi was coming out with this year. I loved my current shorts so how on earth could they get any better? Well, Sugoi isn't just offering a regular short but also a bib short for women - jackpot! Admittedly, I have been jonesing to try out bib shorts but wasn't going to spend the money on another brand not knowing if I would like them. But could the new 10 panel chamois trump the current one? I go by the mantra of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" & that's the part I was nervous about. My fears were assauged after only one ride.
i personally have never worn bib shorts and the thought never crossed my mind until my friend and fellow blogger krista at crazy for cross told me about them. she may have just sold me on trying a pair out soon. only thing i want to know is, what if you hafta pee? how hard is it to get off? i know, i know, if there's a will there's a way.
krista, thanks for being a guest blogger on my blog. much love and peace out!
