I think I've said this before on other items but its true: Its Shimano! its going to be awesome. I've ridden Dura Ace, 105 and Ultegra and for the money Ultegra wins hands down. I went with 11-28 for cross season.
I bit the bullet and finally purchased a 'real' stand. After years of frustration and a sore back I now can't imagine not having one. Being able to clamp my sons bike and rotate it so I could work standing up made me a believer. I can't believe I waited so long to pick one up. This one really is light but my advice is if you're thinking about it just get one, any of the park stands are worth the money!
Yep, i missed that line in the specs! That said they are very comfortable. They stretch and move with you. I went climbing in them the other day and had no problems. I also have a pair of the commuter 511's and have to say these are some of the most comfortable jeans I've owned.
I think they fit great. I wear a 32 in almost everything and ordered a medium. I can't believe how light they are! No pockets doesn't bother me. I don't really notice that I'm wearing them. Excellent pair of work out/running shorts.
