"I recently bought my first pair of your Classic shorts. The first time I wore them was on a 600K brevet. Having recently had chafing issues due to chamois seams and padding configurations, I hoped that the Classic's minimal seams and basic open cell foam would help. However, I brought along a second pair of shorts from a different company as a backup/change option. When the opportunity came to change, your shorts were doing so well to prevent a recurrence of the condition that I didn't risk changing them. I finished the course in them and with no problems with chafing. They did so well, I just ordered a second pair. What a difference a good pair of shorts can make! Thanks."

"I'm TOTALLY sold on your shorts!!! They're amazing. Have done two rides on them already, and they have given me zero chafing, zero discomfort, and they look great. When I first looked at the chamois I didn't think it would work out for me. I had my doubts, and I was proved wrong."

Frequently Asked Questions
1. I saw a review of your products and they talked about your chamois being thinner than others. Can you explain to me the differences in your chamois inserts and how they work?

3. I recently finished a 460 mile bike ride in six days. I developed saddle sores that got infected and the last couple of days were miserable. I'm trying to find a solution and everybody has ideas. I'm currently trying a new saddle and have adjusted the way I sit in the saddle.

4. What if my new shorts don't fit, what is your return policy?

7. My shorts are showing wear and collecting crud in strange places. Can you help me?

8. I'm going to ride the "Ride the Rockies" this year in your shorts. Do I need to add any lubricant? Will that harm the shorts?
