Amen, to that, it was 90 when I left the house today there was no question of putting on a layer of cotton over the lycra.

I just bought a pair of padded Origin 8 from the LBS for $39.00... At first use they seem fine..only used for 1 week now...That Ebay vendor's rating is not worth the money...At least pick a vendor with a 99% or better rating...
