Trajadojawrote a review of Castelli Presto Due Men's Shorts on August 5, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I ride a road bike and I like to take at least one long (70+ miles) a week, so I spend a lot of time in the saddle. After trying several different shorts, these seem to strike a balance between cost and performance. They aren't cheap, but for the price, they are the most comfortable I've worn. I've only done four rides so far, but three of those were over 65-miles, so I can say that they perform well on long rides. Normally 50-miles is the point where I start to feel mild discomfort, but these took me to 75-miles with very limited discomfort. I'm looking forward to centuries wearing these each of the next two weekends.
Only issue was that the stitching of my first pair came loose after only two rides. They've been replaced and we'll see about the longevity. That's the only thing preventing a 5-star rating. At this price, there shouldn't be defects in stitching.
