"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."
"Your clothes are the best made I've bought and are a great value (and I've tried the big names and the discount catalogs). Better yet, you have XXL and XXXL sizes that fit those of us whose bodies have "matured" into pear shapes! Can't find my size in the local bike shops or the normal catalogs."
Criteria for best fit are prioritized from left-to-right. #1 hips, #2 weight, #3 waist, etc.

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.
