I'd prefer them a tad higher up, but overall they are ok :)

They do look like they're the tiniest bit short but otherwise look perfectly acceptable for knocking around in. However, the real question is how do they feel when riding? If they feel right when you're in the saddle then you've got yourself a good deal.

I haven't rode in them yet, but I will in a few days! These are $179 new (Grand Prix) and I don't want to pay full price for a taller version :(

They do look short on me :(

I think they look fine.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

They will drop slightly, and once they do they may be slightly too short, but at the moment I think they look fine :)

They are a little short but for your every day, around the barn type thing I wouldn't worry.
