Looking for bicycle pants. Need advice.
I need a new set of bicycle pants. When riding, I've previously worn a pair of Pearl Izumi spandex pants which have served my needs for years no longer fit. A look at the Pearl Izumi website brought frustrating results. Other websites I knew of brought the same.
I then went to L.L. Bean and asked if they had bicycle pants. The salespeople gave me a few pair which would fit. When I tried them on, I found they were of heavier material for extra cold weather or that they felt too loose. When I asked the salespeople about the loose fitting, they said the pants were of a new style they'd just received. I left without either pair.
Have any of you bought bicycle pants of this type of style? Would any of you be able to suggest where I might be able to buy light lycra or spandex spandex pants of new sizes that are close-fitting? I appreciate any advice you can provide.
