I usually ride in triathlon shorts that are quite short,but they fit well and I have no chaffing and are comfortable to ride 50 mi.
Is wearing anything but longer cycling shorts in bad taste?
On the high end, my Assos bib shorts are the best there is, was, or ever will be.psychlist said:Not to hijack this thread, but what make and model of shorts do you guys prefer?

I am still using some sugino shorts from a club team I belonged to a few years back, however, I am looking to buy some additional quality seatwear.

Wearing short cycling shorts is like riding with no shirt on. Or like riding around town wearing a time trial helmet or with a disc wheel. Only tri-athletes will overlook it. Road racers will think you are a chump.
I don't know what fitness or recreational riders will think. They are all Freds anyway.
If you are comfortable, and aren't a road racer, then don't worry about what anybody else thinks.
