what are the best shorts you've come across?

my Sugio's chamois pad has become way too cloth-y and causes major chaffing.

not for light daily commuting btw.

thanks!!

Individual preference.

Fit is really important, no matter what else you like.

i like specialized's trail shorts (ordered from their website). I use them for road biking- centuries and such. They're comfortable and are decently form fitting. (Also, you can fit long johns or leg warmers on underneath for winter riding)

I love my Terry Bellas, which you can get right here on TE and are 20% off for the next couple of days - along with all other full price items!

I tried a LOT of shorts before I purchased a pair of Gore Oxygen shorts. They are the least apt to turn my girl parts into hamburger, so I'm sold!

How old are your Sugoi shorts and what model?

I typically wear their Evolution or RS models, but I agree with Malkin that it comes down to fit and personal preference. Louis Garneau's Power Shorts seem to be a popular one among TE women these days. Shebeest has several popular models, too, but they've had distribution problems in the US this year and last, so I don't know how available they are.

Even good shorts go bad over time, so if your current Sugoi shorts are chafing you, it may be that they're just too long in the tooth. If you haven't replaced your saddle in a while, that too might be causing problems.
