A question about size. I am 178 cm tall (5'10"), 78 kg (170 lbs) and a waist 84 cm (33"). Would size medium or large be my best choice? Regards, Frank (Australia)

Medium should fit you fine. If you like a longer fit (closer to your knee), i would recommend a large. The medium should be right on the money spot for your leg for a height of 5' 10''.

I'm about the same size as you and initially ordered the large but sent it back for the medium. Great fit. Excellent compression, length is very good (and I like my shorts long). On the large I found the rise to be too high. I felt they were creeping halfway up to my armpits. Medium solved that. Great shorts, by the way and RealCyclist was terrific on the return.
