Not as good as I hoped

Verified Buyer Reviewed by mountain road rider from Franklin, NC on Thursday, August 4, 2011
Having had consistent problems with crotch-area tenderness from my road biking I went with the reviews on these shorts that said that people were very satisfied with the padding. In my two rides since getting them, at 22 and 30 miles, I have not found them to be any better than the ones I had in preventing that bruised feeling. While comfortable to wear, I also found the waist to be rather large relative to the shorts size. Not enough to fall or anything but loose.
I would recommend them as good shorts for the money as long as the padding isn't your primary purpose in getting them.
