I want to like these...

but I just find the pad too thin. I've only worn these once on a 50 mile ride and I didn't really find they provided enough cushion. While the white material didn't cut into my stomach, I could feel it. This is my third pair of Giordana bib shorts and they all fit me really well. I think these shorts will be fine for short training loops but I now know I prefer the Silverline and will get more of those next time I need more cycling gear.

I have found the Silverline to be quite comfortable, too, but not as supportive as maybe you might need...have you tried the FR-C line up it best, but so expensive unless you can grab them on sale. Try it IF you haven't already.
