I believe that my faithful shorts are beginning to thin. Rather than wait for someone riding behind me on a cc social ride to advise me quietly it's time to change them, I want to pre-empt that convo and get some new ones.
I've recently tried bib shorts but the dimensions don't work. I've a...
All the ones I have are good for up to 40 miles, after that, my bum hurts and the ride becomes uncomfortable so what make to you recommend that will have padding good enough to go past 40 miles? Budget about £120.
whats the view in regards to using padded cycling shorts and tights. I've just ordered some bib shorts from fat lad at the back and they look to not have any padding. Do I therefore add padding or are they designed not to use padding. I've always used baggy padded shorts in the past so...
Recommend me some 'high' mileage shorts, doing JOGLE in August and starting to suffer saddle sores on training rides over 50 miles, had bike fit and have tried various creams, using a Charge Spoon saddle.
I'm currently using inexpensive Planet X 365 bibshorts ( http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CLPXP3BS/planet-x-pro-line-365-x-bib-shorts ) and a Spa cycles Nidd saddle that has over 2000 miles on it, so is broken in. My bike, a Hewitt tourer, was fitted to me by the man himself. I cycle regularly...
I bought these in mid-October 2016.
Here is my thread asking for advice on the subject:-
Worn three times in great condition.
I'm just experimenting with riding without padded shorts and creams, like I did in my old riding days. After a short ride of 25 miles, I didn't feel any chaffing or soreness, but my testicles were not as constrained as in padded shorts. I didn't ride my usual 50-70 miles, it was just a test, but...
Just wondering what the difference between the two. I`ve only worn padded shorts and never felt uncomfortable in them. Has anyone gone from shorts to bib shorts and sworn never to go back again or vice versa?
What are the merits of the bib short?
One for the ladies of CycleChat: Which brands of bib shorts are generally the most suitable for the larger / curvier lady?
My wife is around a size 18 on the bottom half, and she's currently wearing some BTwin full length bib tights, however I'd like to get her a pair of really well fitting...
Last year I went through 3 pairs of Tenns (have padded ones underneath but I like something baggier with pockets on top) - all wore out in the inner thigh area. A bit fed up I swapped to another cheap'ish make for the 4th pair but whilst lasting longer, have just worn holes in the same place...
I'm trying to find some decent baggie MTB shorts that have 40" waist as I'm not the slimmest of people.
Can find XXXL on eblag but even those are 38".
Any recommendations very welcome..... Apart from lose weight.
They are an unwanted Christmas gift, too big, with the original tags still attached. I didn't keep the belt that came with them. Endura Urban. Two normal front pockets. Two zip back pockets. Size is extra large. They fit to around the knee (I am 6'2"). Made from a four way stretchy but very...
I was thinking of getting some regular shorts but after a little research decided bibshorts would be a better option.
I really like Endura gear and I am tempted by some Endura FS260 Pro II bib shorts.
Do people have some opinions on these they could share please?
Winter weight bib shorts which I bought in the sales, but tried on (with boxers underneath) for the first time two weeks ago and they are too small - there is a size guide here.
I removed the tags to try them, but will put them back in the bag.
Looking for £40 posted
Lovely pair of water resistant shorts in size large. Great quality and detailing and the RRP on these is £115.
These are used, but still in good condition and with loads of wear left in them yet.
Two front side pockets and one has a little carabiner for keys inside. One rear pocket with magnetic...
Selling due to weight loss. 6 months old. A slim fitting, urban cycling short (no lycra) with two front pockets and two zipped back pockets. Endura products are so well made, robust and deserve their nickname of 'bomb proof'. I have had to buy a new pair a size smaller otherwise they wouldn't be...
I bought a batch of four of these and only wore this pair. Once. For about 30 seconds - I came downstairs in them and SMWBO went :eek: , :giggle: , :thumbsdown: and :ninja: rather than :rose:
They're size Small and the material on the side panels is very see through.
You've been warned!
That's my question. I like to wear my cycling shorts, provided they aren't wet or sweaty, around the house after a ride. I've even worn them down the pub:whistle:. The thing is does sitting down on a flat chair kind of squash the padding more than on a bike saddle?
Recently bought these in the sale, reduced from £125 to £40, but they are a little too large for me. worn once for a 25 mile ride so cant be returned, but they are as new. Anyone interested at £35?
I might have accidentally put a pair of my bibs in with some jeans & now they have a chunk out of them. Has anyone bothered repairing their shorts before and is it worth it, or should I just bin them and get some more?
Wiggle do two dhb brand women's shorts:
'Women's shorts' for £20, and
'Classic women's shorts' for £40.
Just wondering if anyone has tried them, and what makes the classic ones worth (or rather, cost!) twice as much?
