Triathlon - Recommended Tri Shorts?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I've been racing in some "okay" InSport tri shorts, but I'm looking for something a little bit nicer. What do you guys wear/recommend?

It might be a little late now, but sometimes you can find last years model for cheap too.
I have a pair of PI Kawaihae shorts that I really like. They're long for tri shorts, the same as regular bike shorts, but that's why I like them. (The normal length of tri shorts like the Zoot and DeSoto seems to cut right across my hamstring.)
The 2007 has a red or blue fade on the side panel. http://www.pearlizumi.com/product.php?mode=view&product_id=790836&type_id=1&sport_id=6&category_id=15&color_code=029
Look for a 2006 model online for a more subdued black and gray look.

Have any DUDES every tried out the De Soto LOW CUT Tri Short? It says they are unisex - but I would hate to spend $35 to try something only to find out the are too low for dudes.. I'm more than likely going to get the regular 06' De Soto Tri Short as it's on sale for $33 - but if I get some good reviews on the low cuts I may try both..

They carry Desoto stuff as well...
Renee runs the place...you can email her at email@example.com...she is very responsive and nice...
It's funny to see someone mention Renee from Core Multisports on here... The only dealings I've had with her is with race entries, but she is very cool. She answers emails like a champ!
Thanks for the recs on the new shorts!
