Another tip. If leg grippers are bothering you on the rides flip them out for a little bit for a break. Just roll them. Easiest way to take care of the shorts is to wash and rinse cold in the washing machine. Then put them in th dryer on No heat (Fluff). Get's everything nice and dry. I do shorts, jerseys, Road ID, and Polar heart strap in one load by itself.

Thanks for sharing all your advice and experiences. I decided to keep the shorts and recently wore them on a long ride. They worked perfectly. I believe my initial misgivings were due to me being unused to the overall tight fit.
