    Shorts for shorter guys.....

    Hi ya, I am a bit of a shorty, 5”5” I have always stayed away from ‘proper” cycling shorts and use padded boxers. As I am always worried they will be too long in the leg. Does anyone know of a brand aimed at us shorties......:)

    Shorts for touring

    Like a great many people, my plans for a short tour (my first) in France and Belgium were thwarted by Covid 19. While disappointing personally, I'm acutely aware that this was a trivial outcome in the grand scheme of things. Anyway, I've started thinking about doing a slightly longer tour next...

    Are bib shorts really more comfortable than normal shorts?

    I have only ever had normal shorts and I was wondering whether it would be worth investing in good quality bib shorts or is there not much of a difference between bib shorts and normal shorts?

    Entry level cycle shorts

    Hi I am starting to do longing rides. About 30 miles over a couple of hours. I cycle in building shorts, so no padding exists. Therefore I think some cycling shorts would do me good. I am not looking to break the bank and the top of my budget would be £50. Any recommendations appreciated...

    My daughter has a scott junior mountain bike. We've done a couple of easy rides now but she says it hurts her bum. Like us all we just get used to it and maybe add some padded shorts and upgrade the seat. I've not looked for stuff yet but was wondering what other parents have done for there...

    "baggy" shorts for the slim-of-leg

    Don't do lycra, at least not for public consumption, and being tall and skinny all the baggy shorts I've tried look like something I could go camping in rather than wear on the bike. I'd like to be able to wear them around the office when it's hot so prefer if they didn't look too cycling-y...

    Ladies bib shorts recommendation

    Having had my legs out for the first time this year, the pad in my Specialized bib shorts seems to have gone a bit flat and the edge seams rubbing a bit. They are 2 - 3 years old so time for a new pair. What brands do women on here recommend? Some seem to cost silly money. Is it worth it?
