I use these for bike commuting to work and purchased a small and medium. I'm 5'8", 130# and found that the smalls fit better. In terms of comfort they have a decent chamois but I've not used them for more than 12 miles at a time so am not sure how well they would do for longer rides.

I was skeptical, since I hate biking shorts, what with the maxi-pad implanted on the inside. However, when I put these on, they weren't too bad, as biking shorts go. They are very stretchy, light and comfortable. They definitely provide needed padding on bike rides - I've gone on 2-3-hour rides with them, and so far so good.

I already had the matching shirt to these shorts so I was thrilled that Sierra Trading post had the shorts. These are great shorts. They are not too tight in the legs as some PI are. I am 5'1 120 lbs and purchased the medium. When the legs are folded up there is the matching blue and not too loose not too tight.

The shorts work just fine - they are a little longer than the Pearl Izumi Sugar Shorts. My only 'thing' is that the band that holds the short in place around the leg (which is really wide, about 3" or so) makes my upper thigh look so ridiculous that I could never wear these shorts without over-shorts. Like, mega-squish. Really unflattering. I'm a solid size 14 and the XL fit great. I bike a lot, and am glad I have these for back up shorts when my others are in the wash.

These guys are great as far as comfort, but they're more suited for short rides or leisure riders. Since there's no grippy stuff on the cuffs, they ride-up in a major way so be prepared to pull them down constantly! The waist does not bind and feels great, padding and fit is good too. If they could fix the one fla with ride-ups, I'd be ordering more. :-(
