    allow me to take a stab....

    i would definitely get REGULAR shorts you like, and then wear cheaper tight bike specific shorts as underwear beneath. in fact, do your homework...cause i think you can find boxer brief type short/underwear with the thick chamois padding for about 20 bucks.

    so you can get a couple pair of them and one "street" shorts of your liking

    ...or you can pay like 75 bucks for each pair as you mentioned above!

    i wouldnt get a cheap pair... the chamois just flattens out after a month and the shorts are worthless.. they arent effective after that.. i learned my lesson with a 50$ pair of blackbottems...

    I have some Cannondale doubletrack baggies on order and I am also looking at purchasing some Canari MTB trail baggy shorts, both have chamois pads in liners, and liners are removable in the Cannondale shorts.

    BTW, do you wear underwear with chamios liners or no?

    Yes, you want to wear cotton briefs underneath

    I've always heard that you wear no underwear if you have a liner. There doesn't seem to be much of a point if you have one.

    i have a pair of specialized ones from a couple years ago, i don't like them too much. the pockets are nice and they are well made, but the fit is kinda strange. they are pretty short.

    now i usually just wear boardshorts to ride.
