bike shorts (women's)

HI, I am trying to decide between Assos lady FI, Giordana formared, GORE Xenon or GORE OZON. I am doing a long multi day ride in June and need new shorts.

All of the above, or none. You'll want a variety of brands so that you're moving where the seams are each day. And, none if none of them fit YOU properly. Which tour are you doing?

I agree with Pedal Wench. Buy the shorts that fit and are most comfortable.

There is a women's forum you are eligible to gain access to after posting here for a month. Send a PM to Siu Blue Wind (administrator) to get access.

Thanks for the ideas. I live in Idaho and don't have the opportunity to try any of the shorts on before buying. I already have a pair of the assos, so I think I will try a couple of the others. I am doing the Ride the Rockies tour in June. I haven't ever done that long of ride before. The most has been 2 back to back century's as TOSRV west.

I've been using Skins compression shorts on my brevet series this year and really like them. Expensive but worth it in my opinion. Great chamois pad, fit, etc.
