bike pants
« on: March 14, 2007, 07:27:08 PM »
Joe Rocket textile bike pants with sliders and zip to attach to jacket.

Nice quality. Size 48 apparently.  

That means about my sized waist but 3-4 inches long in the leg for me.  

This is always the way for me.  To get a jacket that fits I have to get a 44-48 depending on cut and then it is usually too long for me.  Too get one that is the right length for me I have to get a 40-42 and then it is usually tight around my arms and shoulders.  

Found this suit, textile jacket and pants at a brilliant price courtesy of helping a fellow bike rider out when he dropped his zx10 a little while ago.  He works at a bike shop and was able to sling me a great deal on the suit, only prob, gotta take the whole suit - cant change the pants.

So, long story short, or short man telling long story.  

I have a great set of summer weight, 48 pants (about size92), with knee sliders, safety padding, great stitching, fully lined and brand spanking new that would suit someone about 6 foot.  (the knee sliders protect my calf well.)

Looking for 100 bucks pp. Estimate postage at around 10 bucks must places in Australia.

Will get a picture up soon if anyone is remotely interested.

these are textile pants .
in lamens terms ( no insult intended)
you get winter and summer ones.
winter has a liner inside that keeps out the cold as well as body armour
summer no liner or very thin and body armour

both are made with special material to prevent road rash when sliding
generally you can take the liner out of winter ones and wear them in summer but they get warm.

on the money there Doc.  

These are summer pants.  

They are 'rocktex' textile fabric.  (A fancy brand name for cordura fabric.) It's good solid stuff. Takes a bit of getting used to after wearing leather cause it just feels so damn light. It's every bit as bitumen resistant just a whole bunch lighter.  (They cover our bullet proof vests in this cordura stuff)  

These pants have built in armour in the knees and padding round the hip.

If you havent worked it out yet, I really like them but they just dont fit.

They are acceptable for use at Queensland Race Track.

Piccy ------



As you can see from pic, no daggy colours or anything, they are a proper colour. They have a full zip around the waist so you can zip your jacket to them to stop the jacket rolling up when / if you spill.

Good pants.

Just dont fit. Bastards.






Oh and spanks, if your hubby fits em, you can pay em off love.  No dramas.  Jeez, for you I'll pay the postage.



They fit me round the arse and guts, I'm 86-90 waist and proportionate arse.  (Not enough donuts yet)

Just need to be a few inches taller than me.  (I'm 5'9")
