Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Women's cycling Shorts 9"

I am looking for women's padded cycling shorts with 9" inseam. I like them a little longer with winter coming. Any suggestions? Thanks

have you inquired with being added to the women's forum. Ping an Admin, it used to be an invite type thing as it is a hidden group.

Invite-only and hidden. Sounds like that secret restaurant in the Newark airport https://www.businessinsider.com/secr...irlines-2017-9

Zoot tri-shorts are very good. I wouldn't call them "padded" tho. they have a moisture management liner

LOL... yea. Well, they did not want to open to masses and wanted the women to be able to ask questions without having to deal with all the snarky answers. I was a mod at one point and I did not have access.

probably because it is hidden so a lot of people do not know it is there.

Are you wanting shorts specifically, or bibs, or either? I am a little taller and prefer a 9" inseam if I can find it. So will stay tuned for others recommendations. I have older Specialized shorts with a 9" inseam that I like. I think I've seen the newer editions posted at 8" though so it might be worth hunting around. Peppermint cycling has a classic bib with 9". Terry lets you search on their site by inseam length, which is nice. Pearl Izumi do shorts I believe in 9" as well.

Didn't know about that. I'm glad to hear it exists and (sadly) can understand why it's hidden.

I am a big fan of Velocio, they’re pricey but the quality, chamois, and customer service at top notch. They also have a good clearance section. Their shorts and bibs have a 8.7” inseam, close to your requirement. I prefer the Luxe line but the Signature line is great as well. They also a thermal bib sort that might interest you.

I do wish the women’s forum was more active. After Title 9 and Terry shut down their forums, there aren’t many more options left outside of Facebook. It’s a bummer.

I don't know the exact inseam, but my wife has two pair of Giordana that are pretty long.

I recall seeing a fairly active online forum called "Team Estrogen" a few years back, might also be inactive/gone but worth checking.

Good to hear. I help run a non-profit mentor cycling program for teens and since velorosa is local and involved in the cycling community here, they sponsor a clothing swap each year where a lot of gently used/unused clothing is donated to our program at the end of the night. They have helped support the program in a couple other ways too thru the years.

Good brand for sure.
