Pearl Izumi bicycle shorts with built-in MP3 player helps fight Parkinson's


Dear John Biggs,

This pair of Pearl Izumi Microsensor Bib Shorts reminds me of you. I don’t know what it is about them. Maybe it’s the form-fitting Spandex, maybe it’s the straps that remind me of that thing you wore that one time, who knows. I shouldn’t have brought that up, I know. What I do know, however, is that it has a built-in flash-based MP3 player that holds about 16 hours worth of music. The sounds is apparently pretty decent too. Never having used it, I can’t vouch per se.

Price does seem steep to me, but I’m not the type of person to buy Spandex bike shorts anyway. That’s all you, John. She costs $499, but $100 of that will go toward a group researching Parkinson’s.
