Help! Where to find good touring shorts w/short inseam?
I've been having a hard time finding a source for good touring-style shorts (double layer, with inside biking short/pad and outside overshort) with a short inseam. Most of what I've found have 8-10" inseams, which look ridiculous on me.
I have a pair of older REI Novara shorts that I absolutely love, with about a 5-6" inseam. Unfortunately, I only bought one pair at the time and they no longer make them.
I do also ride in regular Lycra spandex shorts, but when touring I prefer the look and style of a double short, both to have pockets for off the bike and so I don't look like I dropped in from outer space when I'm in a small-town diner or visiting a European cathedral.
