    Bike short recommendation

    Can anybody recommend any MTB style shorts that aren't really baggy? I bought some Canaris (the cheaper ones), and I'm a scrawny little guy, so even the small looks really big and "poofy" on me Is there anything out there a little more streamlined?

    The best solution is more self comfort-less self consciousness.

    If you are young and pedal some you'll fill those baggies some.

    At least in terms of legs.

    Ha ha! I'm old and scrawny! 52 and still the same weight I was when I was 18 (for better or worse!) I wear skinny jeans and they look like relaxed fit on me

    Will look into touring shorts---thanks!
