You say go for a short spin around town......
You say go for a short spin around town... How about these for a longer bike ride... Say - 3 hrs or so?
These are about the same as the Neo Power shorts in design & construction: I wore the Neo Power shorts on a recent 4 hr. ride & found them to be initially comfortable, but then when it became warmer, they were so hot, and just unbearable (the pain!). Now the shorts are supposed to be a higher performance garment than these. So, take a tip from the items description: the words "gym" & "short spin" are tip-offs to the riding level you can expect from these knickers.
Try Giordana F.R.C. for outstanding performance, if you can.
Hope this still helps!
