I need a good pair of bikeshorts

So ive been reading a lot about bikers experiencing male impotence later in life. Apparently a lot of bikers have this problem. This seems to be especially true in mountain bikers due to the jarring of the rough terrain on their downtown bonanza. I dont have a good pair of bike pants and i am looking for a nice padded pair that prevents my a** from hurting at the end of a run. Anyone have suggestions on what gives me the best bang for my buck?

If new to riding , it generaly takes time to over come the soreness. If you seat is too narrow, and does not fit you "sit bones" ,shorts will not help. before buying shorts make sure you have the proper sized seat. when buying shorts, some people like a thin pad, some like'um thick.

I don't use padded shorts, I bought a seat that fit me well.

Good saddle, fit, and chamois shorts should sort it out.
