How to Pick Bicycle Parts & Accessories : Bicycle Riding Shorts Tips


As long with the proper saddle, I find if
you are going to spend more than hour on a bike, a good pair of shorts are dispensable.
Good shorts are usually between $16 and $80 to start. Anything less usually doesn’t fit
well and does not have a good pad on the inside that is actually cut for anatomic. Shorts
are meant to be worn without underwear. Don’t be embarrassed if you thought they were but
they are not because your goal is to get rid of seams and cotton clothing away from places
they don’t need to be while you are riding. It is almost like a saddle pad except unlike
a saddle pad that just moves around on the seat, this actually is held in place by proper
paneling. You look at the cuts here. They use the grain of the Lycra and they cut each
panel so it will stay put on your body. Elastic rippers although those who may be allergic
to silicone, should realize that a lot of these rippers may give them problems so they
need to look for that when they buy them. Good shorts and a good saddle are just indispensable
for comfort if you are going to spend more than an hour on a bike. Further than shorts,
you can go to what is called bib shorts or bib tights. The idea with a bib is since it
goes up and over our shoulders, it’s holding the pad exactly where you want it. Here is
an example of a different shaped pad but the whole idea with bids is that everything is
being held in place a little more readily due to the shoulder straps.
