Shorts with short inseam?

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

Shorts with short inseam?

Hi, does anyone know of any shorts with a shorter inseam than usual? Less than 8 inches, preferably? Thanks.

Probably not. The cut and padding would probably feel weird unless you have proportions like a woman.

Why bother to get your shorts altered? What's wrong with the length as is?

Here is a Serria Trading post link, unfortunately sold out but the product info is there. Zoot makes tri and running stuff but these are bike specific with a good pad. I have a pair of these and like them very much. Do have the inseam you need.

The shorts are too long because you're wearing them wrong.

The chamois (padding) should be on the outside.
