Strengths:    nice lycra, chamios, okay but seem over padded.

Weaknesses:    Makes the boys feel like they're being constricted by a Python!

Bottom Line:   
I like most of my PI stuff so I grabbed these shorts..may be just me..I'm 5'7" 153 lbs and a 32 waist and I grabbed a medium. Probably wrong choice because these babies make my boys feel like they're in a vice and totally cuts off all my circulation in my package. Felt okay at try on but when riding just don't work! Do all PI shorts stay loose around the thigh Grabbers? The bottom inch of these are lose...figured that's the style?

Strengths:    Good fit, nice chamois, great price

Weaknesses:    Lacks the snob appeal of three figure priced shorts but I've ridden a double in them with no irritation.

Bottom Line:   
I found these in a sale bin at a local Performance retail shop. The $36.00 price looked good for a pair of PI shorts. It turns out they have just as good a chamois as my Attacks which were $69.00 and stay put better. Don't know how long they'll last but the quality appears to be equal to higher priced shorts and I enjoy wearing them. In an age where good shorts usually start at $80.00 (what a crock, right?), I've got no far.

I have been riding a 2004 Fuji Newest and it is time to step it up to a new bike. I like steel. So far, leading the race is the Jamis Quest (femme). Anyone know if there any significant difference between the 2011 and 2012 models? Also, if I go with this bike, is there any advantage to a triple ... Read More »
