Perfect XC/AM Shorts

These things are awesome. They are light and stretchy so they feel great for a long day of pedaling. They fit true to size, and for me (6' tall, 190 lbs, wearing size 34) they hit mid knee cap. This is perfect because while riding they go up just above the knee, making for zero restriction of movement. Then when I get done riding they are long enough to conceal my pearly whites and look like a normal casual short. The chamois isn't mind blowing, but works. I've owned these for 4 days, but already done two 20+ mile days in the mountains in comfort. Lots of good options these days for bike shorts in this price range, but these definitely do not disappoint.
