    Does anything like this exist?
    After wearing Bikesters (longs) over winter the Endura Humvee shorts felt uncomfortable and heavy yesterday.
    I may just get a few pairs of cheap bikesters and cut them.

    Those were the first pair of Lycra shorts which I bought, they are good if you are on a budget, not sure they are what buddha had in mind though...

    Those shorts are pretty much like normal lycra shorts.
    Not baggy enough to save my dignity whilst in the queue at Tesco:blush:

    I mailed Ronhill (via their site) suggesting that they might want to consider making a shorts version of the Bikesters.

    In the meantime I'll take a pair of scissors to an old pair of bikesters, and try and find someone who knows how to use a sewing machine properly.

    For what it's worth, I had the same requirement (for summer shorts as comfortable as my winter Bikesters). Having found nothing as light, simple and comfortable in the shops I took the scissors to my Bikesters on Monday (I'll buy some more Bikesters for next winter).

    Results: first, very easy to cut, cuts very clean (with big tailor's scissors) and after a few days at least, doesn't seem to fray even with no treatment of the bare ends. And it feels like you'd expect - very comfortable. So I'm a happy camper (although wife isn't sure about the style points...).
    Enjoy the summer - get those knees out!

    Yep, I did the same just after my last post. And now have 3 pairs cut short. Even did the sewing machine bit myself (with the aid of the interweb)

    So am now showing off my well sculpted claves et al.:eek:
