    Tights: Are BIKING tights generally shorter than typical RUNNING tights?

    I've tried on some running tights and my waist falls on a medium but inseam is just right for a small.

    I'm not sure on how it works for cycling tights.

    Not necessarily. Their leg lengths vary depending on the brand or options within a brand.

    The primary difference between running tights and cycling tights is the padding.

    None of my cycling tights have a chamois.

    No. I have two pair and both are ankle length. In fact, one old polypro pair has foot stirrups.
