    Looking for some LONG shorts for Downhill

    I'm not sure if it's because my legs are so long or because I'm just not buying the right shorts, but they're all shorter than I'd like.

    I have 2 pairs of Fox Sergeants that are great for almost all of my riding, but when I downhill I want something longer. I'm 6'4" and the Sergeants come right down to the middle of my knee cap, great for anything where I'm going to be pedaling because when I'm seated they are just above my knee and out of the way.

    When I downhill and don't need to pedal nearly as much I want something a bit longer/baggier and more stylish.

    Anyone have experience with anything? I know the Sergeants are pretty long on lots of people, but not so much on me.

    If you want some of the best check out Ibex Outdoor Clothing. The Men's Synergy Long short has a 16" inseam. Lots of excellent quality merino wool, tight knitted.

    Fox Demo shorts are pretty long and most DH specific shorts are going to be longer than the Sergeants. I have a pair or Oakley and Royal Racing dh shorts that drop about 3" below my knees @ 6'.

    For those interested. I picked up a pair of 2012 Fox Demo DH shorts for $59.99 from JensonUSA

    Price matched the sale at Cambria today, but I prefer Jenson, better customer service and it's actually in stock.
