Devoid of all flim-flam
I need to know. If there were a study that said padded cycling shorts only damped road bumps & vibration by a half a percent, would you quit wearing padded cycling shorts? Would you declare them a sham? Would you declare them a sham if the improvement were 2.5%? Would you declare cycling shorts a sham if a study showed that a pair of baggy, unpadded, flapping cargo shorts were only 2.5% less aerodynamic?
