    bib shorts padding

    i washed my bib shorts and the darn padding in the shorts shifted around, i bought specialized shorts from a LBS. Does this happen every time i wash or should i be returning the shorts?

    Return them. The padding is generally stitched in, so I'd call them defective..

    That's super awkward. Return it.

    Wow, I just saw your screen name and had to reply. The padding in any shorts should be sewn into positon and not free floating in a pocket. I have tried a few different brands through the years and have liked Pearl Izumi brand the most. I have one pair of bibs but cannot seem to get comfy with them.

    Have been using Altura 'waist' shorts to date and they have been quite resilient. No shifting of pads.

    Just purchased a new bib shorts by Pearl Izumi and looking forward to trying that out.

    On another note ... Is it just me or do some of you feel that way as well. I am more comfortable in an XL even though I am a L. My waist size is 33". Happened to both my cycling shorts to date. (Altura & Pearl Izumi) ... Maybe I am putting on weight but I am not ready for it yet ...

    I had this problem too with an no-name brand. I returned them and bought a better the performance bike house brand which seems good so far.

    what is the best performing shorts for the price? Do you have to spend $100 to get some good shorts. I just got back into road biking and need new duds. Any advice on where to look.

    Don't need to spend 100. I prefer Descente. Discontinued but you can still find them.

    For really cheap clothes checkout www.pricepoint.com. Good quality.
    Also www.aerotechdesigns.com.

    Bib shorts probably to get even a low end pair, but for regular shorts should be much less than that. I wear bibs so I have not checked prices lately for shorts but I am a huge fan of Louis Garneau proucts.
