    $20.00 US I just bought 2 pairs. I have never had a pair of high end bike shorts so I'm sure they will work for me.

    Had a pair of Answer's that fell apart, they were pricey. Have some Nashbar's that won't die, they were cheap. Couple weeks ago looking for some 1/2" pedals for a Clunker Schwinn project (there was nothing)I see the 20.00 spandex Schwinn shorts and nabbed a pair. They had Mongoose baggies too. Sorry haven't worn them yet. IMO price means nothing sometimes.

    Do keep in mind: wal-mart has stuff made extra-cheap, just so that they can sell something-that-looks-like-what-other-places-sell, but for less than what anywhere else charges for it.

    Also note: a lot of this stuff has NAME BRANDS on it, but that does not mean that the factory that usually makes that-name-brand stuff, made this item. In fact, it may be a quality level that is well-beneath what that name-brand offers for sale anywhere else.

    In short--try one and see how it goes. But don't be too surprised if you find it lacking in one or more respects.

    Bought 2 pair. Can't tell the difference between them and the other cheap end LBS ones I have bought on sale in the past for at least twice the price. They are 8 panel, padded and comfortable. That being said, time will tell how long they last. At $20 a pair I'm happy!
