does n +1 apply to mtb shorts?
Yeah, I get shorts n+1 but for the wrong reasons – no pair of shorts has ever been ‘right’ for me. I’m always on the lookout for the right pair of shorts. 10+ years and at least 6-7 pairs of shorts and I still haven’t discovered “the one”. They’re either the wrong cut (they get caught on seat), poor pocket selection, too heavy, or poor quality/fall apart. I’m not especially pedantic either – I’m quite content with every other bike / part / item of clothing I own.
So IMO keeping three pairs in different colours is madness – at some point in the near future you’ll realise that there’s a devastating flaw and you have three pairs of imperfect shorts. Unless of course, Endura HumVees are the perfect MTB shorts, in which case I’ll take three pairs 🙂Posted 4 years agoJoeGSubscriber
Along the lines of what Superficial says…
If you do find a piece of bike clothing that you really like, buy several! Especially gloves and shorts! The manufacturer will always “improve” it for the following year, and will change the fit or remove the feature(s) you really liked. And if you have a few, they last a lot longer and its easier to keep a clean set on hand.Posted 4 years ago
