I live in rural Missouri, about a metric-Century from my LBS, so I must take care of most of my cycling needs on-line.
I just finished my first ride with a pair of 8-panel lycra, CoolMax chamoised shorts from Zerie USA - These are THE best fitting shorts that I've ever had on and the workmanship appears to be top-notch. I bought two pair @ $23.99 each and paid $2.00 shipping. I found Zerie USA at eBay but you can also go to www.zerieusa.com where you will find a complete line of cycling clothing.
AFTER I had ordered the shorts, I got an email from Zerie's Andres Rojas of Alpharetta, Georgia who informed me that Zerie USA is a small, family owned business that is very committed to customer satisfaction. He asked how tall I was to ensure that the shorts I had ordered (Medium, 32-34 inch waist) were going to fit the rest of my frame. We exchanged a couple of emails (at 9:30 p.m.!), each assuring me that I could return/exchange the shorts if not completely satisfied. Andres followed up the next morning, informing me that my shorts were on the way via USPS Priority Mail.
I would recommend these shorts and this company to any cyclists out there who appreciates value for the buck and terrific customer service.
