Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 220 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

The Elite In-R-Cool has been my goto short/bib for a few years now.

Bottom line is that it's an excellent, durable short, that's comfortable to wear and about middle of the road in cost. I think the fit is particularly good for those of us with larger thighs.

I am not an enormous fan of PI stuff, but honestly it's hard to argue with the fact that they do a great job at both design and construction. If you prefer to drop your cash on Assos, be my guest.

4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

When I watch TV in an active house (two kids), I keep the volume at about 20.

When I watch TV in a quiet house (kids asleep), I keep the volume at about 8.

When I watch TV on this trainer, I keep the volume at about 45. And when I do, my kids and wife remain asleep.

It ain't silent. But it ain't loud either. A massive improvement over my past trainers. Recommended.

PROS
-- Bike at "normal height" is a massive plus.
-- Stability is great, and it does feel more like "real" riding.

CONS
-- Heavy. Worried that my kids will try to use the bike as a handle for moving the trainer and it will break the bike.
-- No handle for moving the trainer. Kinduvapain.
-- Setup isn't terrible, but you need a chain whip and a cassete wrench.
