Cycling Weekly Verdict

The material of the shorts didn't give me confidence that it will pass the wear and tear test for long. But there are still plenty of things to like - they are competitively priced and offer good breathability. But this could be one of those times where you should 'buy nice' or risk having to 'buy twice'...
