...with that pad and everything. But I don't want to spend a fortune and I don't want to get cheap garbage... and I don't want to buy used... What's a good source? What do I look for?
I tried a pair of mountain shorts from performance that aren't very padded since it seemed like a good way to give it a try, and they're way better on the bike than they are standing in the store or driving to the trail to ride, so I'm ready to commit. But I'm not willing to spend my whole budget on one pair of shorts, so I need some advice.
I'm 6'5 and very long in the torso with a 36-38" waist (depending on how much pizza i've had recently) so I'm probably not going to find comfortable bibs, so we're just talking shorts. Can I get something decent for <=$50? I'm not doing this professionally, but i was sore after the MS ride this summer and i'm starting to be interested in the beginners cross races and blah blah blah... And I'll probably want similar tights before long too...
Any help? Both with decent brands/styles and retailers?
