I own 2 pairs of the Castelli Presto shorts. They are really comfortable for me. I bike 70 plus miles without any discomfort. Yes the graphics do tend to peel after time, even though I hand wash and hang dry. Even with that flaw, I do plan on ordering another pair soon because they are very comfortable, and that is the key. I'm 5' 6" @ 180 lbs, and a medium fits me perfect.
