*best* cycle short

Looking for opinions on the best cycle shorts for 100 dollars or less. Currently have a couple pairs of pear Izuma quest cheapys I bought at dicks. I was considering pearl Izuma elites inrcool has anyone tried those?

These will be for my rides 50 miles plus so I want a high end short. Never tried bibs, they seem more expensive while doing essentially the same thing. Any opinions and links to buy will be appreciated!

Aerotech designs, love2pedal, voler...I've used variations of all 3 sellers/manufacturers and have yet to have any issues on 50-125 mile rides.

The advantage of bibs, especially on longer rides is the lack of a waistband. Nothing cutting in for those few hours in the saddle makes a difference.

I don't have any shorts that cost over $50 so these may not be up to the level you desire, but my favorite and most comfortable shorts are the Nashbar Isolation & Tecumseh shorts. (pretty much the same shorts except for one minor detail difference.). They are often on sale for between $20-30.

Wow 20 bucks? That would be worth taking a chance on for sure. Even if they Arnt great they'd do for commuting I'm sure. Waistbands on shorts have never given me a problem, so I don't think I need bibs.

I just brought PI elites inrcool bibs on Amazon for $116. They are the best I've tried and I rank them with Assos.

For some of us bibs are just more comfortable because of the lack of a drawstring and if you are cursed with no waist like I am the don't ride down and expose your crack.

I've been using the Performance Elite bibs for probably 6 years now and really like them. About $60.

Had my first 50m ride last week with Aerotech top shelfs and they worked just fine, $50. I heard someone mention the lack of a drawstring on bibs but these don't have a drawstring. Great company, always answered my email questions promptly and the shorts are made in America as well.
