I got mine from Dick's Sporting Goods. I like them a lot. Usually wear running shorts overtop, just because I like the option of going inside places and not looking so spandex-clad.

These are very good shorts for the money..

I have several and they hold up great as does the chamois. A Sharpie pen does good for blacking out the little Price Point isignia.

don't buy online - go somewhere and try them on. I got mine at Dick's Sporting Goods.

Aerotech Designs is the best!

• American Made
• Inexpensive
• High Quality
• Great Customer Service

I have both the standard and pro shorts and both are great but I recommend the pro shorts. Their website looks like a 2nd graders class project but their stuff is top notch and I've no complaints with any of their items I've owned.

Aerotech also makes cycling clothes up to a size XXXXL.

I'm not that big but I respect a company that recognizes that cyclists come in all shapes and sizes and doesn't cater exclusively to sub-175lb folks like many brands do.

Does anyone wear Santini Top CXEL bike shorts? They're on sale for a ridiculous value at nashbar.com this weekend, but my wife and I are wondering how their sizes run and how they're chamois fits/rides before we spend the money.
I usually wear Pearl Izumi Slice Microsensor shorts, if that helps as a reference. Can anyone give us a review, or some advice?
