    More shorts

    Well I have been having some bum issues after puchasing my new bike. I really put it down to my saddle mostly as I had what I thought were some decent shorts. So I've been fiddling around with the saddle position before considering purchasing a new one.

    Last week I found some shorts on special on an internet bike shop. They were quite heavily reduced at only a quarter of the normal price (which is lower than RRP). So I bought a couple of pairs. I presume these are so heavily reduced because they are discontinued.

    Just went for a ride on the trainer then. I changed the saddle position again only slightly against to experiment with this.

    Oh heaven. Heaven on my toosh.

    I am pretty sure it's mostly the shorts, not the saddle. But really, it was really comfortable and even thought it was only a ~30 min ride, I didn't find myself having to shuffle around frequently to try and get comfortable.

    So the question really is, should I go right now and buy 20 pairs of these?

    Yes you should because there is this law of nature that goes something like "anytime you find something you really like, buy a spare because they are going to quit making it."

    It's a New Zealand Company. And sorry they are ladies shorts

    It's by a company called Nzo. Even they don't make larger sizes I would say the brand in general is clydish friendly, as their larger stuff is very forgiving in the fit without looking baggy.
