What the hack? Chest/waist sizing seems WAY off! A Large has a 19.7 inch chest? and a 17.1 inch waist? Maybe the measurements were taken "across the front" or something like that, as opposed to the actual circumference. In any case, I'm a 41" chest and a 34" waist: does anyone who's worn these have a size suggestion?

Hey everyone,

I've got four pairs of these bad boys. I love 'em. I wear them even when I'm not pedaling or standing like the guy in the pic. My original two pairs (the old "Not Black" color) have slowly lost their water-repellant property. I'm sure the new ones will, too, eventually. What's the washing machine additive that supposedly restores this quality? While I'm asking, if anyone's tried that additive, can you comment on how well it worked? Thanks, all.
Cheers,
-Alex
PS Did I mention I love these knickers?

Context: I'm a used-to-be road racer and continuing on- and off-road age-group triathlete. I cyclocross for fun and fitness and have been commuting on a 'cross bike for three or four years now. I decided it was simply easier on my Specialized Tricross for me to just leave that as my commuter (no more mounting and removing racks and fenders) and get the CX6.5 as a full-time fun bike for weekend (or weekday!) 'cross rides. Holy $h!t! This bike is built to go fast. I love my Tricross, but it's no race bike. The Blue Comp. CX6.5 wants to jump out from under me whenever I stomp on the pedals. My first jaunt was on a set of jeep road loops that connect via some double track and I was blown away by this bike's performance. The carbon fork takes up a lot of the vibration (I'd like to get a carbon seatpost and handlebar...and I will in the spring!) and I felt fresh, comfortable and really just fast. The bike responds well to my input and it feels like it wants to jump on any attack. Awesome. It arrived almost completely put together, very professionally packaged. All I had to do was get the stem and handlebars on and do the front brakes, which took me a little bit to get just right. It was otherwise ready to go: shifting was set, rear brakes were good to go... Do not mis out, especially on Bonktown prices!

First, don't get these for racing, they're not skintight spandex®. These are incredibly comfortable, soft, just stretchy enough and exceedingly water-resistant. I rode through some pretty nasty wetstuff in New Hampshire this summer and no matter how wet the trails got, the water just beaded off. I suspect that a major downpour would get them soaked, but I further guess that they'd dry really quickly. The workmanship and styling is great: I wore them out for brunch and mini-golf with the family. I'm not a pockets-on-my-gear kind of guy, so the numerous storage possibilities on them are a minor downside for me. But, that's a personal preference. I don't like giving away secrets, but Cutter® is too cool to keep hidden in my closet. Get these! They rock.

PS Sizing seems to be spot-on: I'm a 34" waist and the medium fit perfectly. I'm short and they come just below my knees, too. And, finally, they do stretch a bit and they have belt loops, so if your weight fluctuates, these will expand a bit (or vice versa) with you.

I love these. I don't want everyone to buy them out, but I can't keep my mouth shut on them, either. They ride very comfortably, shed water very well and whatever moisture they do pick up dries quickly. The styling is great, too. I went from a long ride in the mountains to breakfast out with the fam. and then mini-golf in them. Sure, I didn't smell very good at the end of 18 holes, but I looked damn fine in these knickers (manpris, as my friends call them). They're pretty sweet and you should buy them. Size-wise, they ran pretty true: I've got a 34"waist and the mediums are spot-on. If I gain a little weight, they'll stretch with me, if I lose a little weight, well, maybe I'll get a belt: oh, they've got belt-loops. The only downside, and it's minor, is that there are too many pockets. I'm not a pocket-guy on the bike.
