    Shorts for bike & run.

    Anyone have any advice on good shorts for both the bike and run section?

    I want something that'll keep my boys in place during the run, protect my ass during the ride, and not feel like a diaper.

    Yep, these would do it. The pad is very thin and they are compression shorts, so they are quite snug, but still comfortable.

    It's all about comprimise. Tri shorts have a thinner chamios which helps on the run but doesn't provide that same padding as a road chamios...

    I race in Orca tri shorts from 1/2 IM up to and including IM okay. Anything shorter I just race in the speedos.

    Yep. That's what I use. I tried several and this is the best from my standpoint.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    They are good for swimming and comfortable while running.

    I like to run in my bike shorts. I dont feel like it impedes me at all and they're actually quite comfortable.
