On Bike Shorts

I never used to wear bike shorts. I grew up with a negative image of them that I'm sure a lot of people are familiar with.

Having bought a new seat designed to be used with them, I wore pair to yesterday's Ride for Heart. The shorts were good.

My only lingering complaint (to all of the roadies out there), is that some shorts don't fit some folks just right. When you're trying on your shorts, be sure to bend over and check for two things:
  1. Do you have plumber butt?
  2. Can you see through the shorts?
If either of 1 or 2 is true, people will be able to see more of your butt than you want when you're riding.
