it’s a few quid extra (£17.99 vs £20.99)

i need to spend £20 anyway to get free postage so i guess i may as well

Hello there bike w- friends!

Might be going on a long-ish cycle this weekend for the first time and was thinking of getting some padded shorts - any of these you’d recommend (or any others that are cheap and on prime)? Want to order in the next couple of hours to get them by tomorrow


#9307

do you live near decathlon? id go there instead, you can get stuff mad cheap.

I’d also try and persuade you to get some with shoulder straps (bibs) they look dorky but will stop your arse hanging out the back


#9308

This is all exactly what I was gonna say.

Something like this will actually be decent @cutthelights: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/road-c-500-cycling-bib-shorts-black-red-id_8500234.html

and @japes

don’t really live near decathlon but there’s one about a half hour train away, might make the trip out

cheers for the tip on getting a bib - should have known yous would steer me towards something super geeky :wink:


#9310

i’ve got two pairs of the decathers’ 500 bibs, and have worn them on a a couple of rides of ~4 hours (as well as loads of 2-3 hour rides) and they’ve been absolutely fine.

definitely worth getting bibs as opposed to waist shorts as well.

i find that their sizing is sometimes a bit wayward, so worth trying on if you’re able to as well!


#9311

if you really cba, in my earlier cycling days i got a pair of tenn bibs off amazon

something like this

they were okay for short commutes but decathers will be much much better


#9312

You can order online from decathers. Also the wiggle.com house brand Dhb are very good value for money. Definitely get bibs not shorts


#9313

cheers, think I might make the trip, can pick up some running stuff too :slight_smile:


#9314

I know but I’m cycling on Saturday :sweat_smile:


#9315
