Does anyone have any recommendations? I find that the material is always too
tight around my groin, and suspect that it is because the towling insert to
the front of the chamois does not stretch. Do any manufacturers make shorts
without a "drip tray"?

Cheers,

Barney

Men's bicycling shorts are stupid. The black lycra shorts for road
bicyclists are ugly, hot, and too confining. The baggy shorts for
off-road with liners are equally stupid. Something that is trim fit but
stretchy like Sportifs are what is needed.

Suggest that you acquire some Sportif shorts and sew in a saddle patch,
available from Performance Bicycles to get shorts that are stretchy, neat
looking. comfortable, and do not look like an idiot cyclist.

Two of the best in racing sports this year are geldings. You
should explore that option, if it troubles you so much. Or, did you
just want to proclaim on the WWW that you've got big ones?

So are women's. They feel like you're wearing a girdle with a sanitary pad!
And there isn't much of a choice for women who are bigger than a size 12.

Hi LB

I have a few pairs of Shimano off-road style shorts that are
reasonably trim in the fit. I use these shorts for both general
trundling around and for longer rides.

They are "trim fit butstretchy". Also, they're quite decent-looking to
wear off the bike - they don't scare the animals, the children or the
old ladies. (It's occasionally a little hard to differenciate between
the first two groups!!)

But the sausage can hang at an angle.

Ice cubes. Put a few in your shorts, and it'll shrink 'em.
Then the shorts will fit better.

James,

The Shimano shorts you mention sound like some Nikes I bought many years
ago but have completely worn out. They were a stretch twill with an
ultra-suede-like lining in the crotch (no padding). Also had side =
pockets
and one back pocket and a plastic zippered fly. Nashbar had something
similar but with a terry cloth crotch and side pockets only.

If anyone knows of a source for these kinds of shorts, I'd appreciate
knowing about it. TIA
