    Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

    Road cycle 125 miles a week. I rotate three pairs of these shorts in my kit. They may not bear the logo or name of a larger manf. or somebody's name but don't dismiss these as your consideration. They wear very well hold up to numerous hand and machine washing's. As new out of the box they may seem to be overly padded (however) once worn for a couple of outings they compact to a very well fitting comfort without feeling like your wearing an adult diaper in your shorts. I have a 34-35 waist. purchased the Large and it fits nicely. I would purchase these again and again . I ride in 100 degree heat and the shorts will get damp in the center but that's to be expected. No tears or sagging of material have occurred in the three pair I use weekly. Catch these on a sales promotion and you have a true winner. So what are you waiting for........ I don't get paid to endorse this product either. $2k year customer you'd think I'd rate a free pair? Huh....

    Sizing seems quite different from other Nashbar shorts I have purchased.

    The padding is far too thick and results in some discomfort.

      Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

      best value shorts out there. I'm a randonneur, and that means spending a lot of hours in the saddle. these are comfortable. they wear well, but the fabric does tend to pill a little under the seat. that is a cosmetic issue and not much of a concern for me. I buy two pair at a time and replace every six months or around 5K miles. The shell seems to hold up, but the padding looses resiliency at about this distance. drawstring is nice, and the fit is good. doesn't ride down in the back when on the aero bars for long periods.

      Bought these based on reviews thinking it would solve my sore tailbone problem but after 9 miles in Moab they felt just like my older thinner chamois. The quality is good and I will continue to wear them.

      I ride 40+ miles a lot. When these shorts get damp, the material over the padding
      gets very rough feeling. For cool weather or 20 mile rides they are fine.

            just purchased along with a very good fitting pair of Pearl Izumi. These seem too long, too wide in the waist and leg and not padded enough. Maybe they were miss labeled. Returning them.

              I ride daily, 20-24 miles on average. I find these Gel Shorts to fit my 34 waist perfectly. I ordered a Large. Nice fit, there's no fancy logo from a high profile name on these,but don't judge this book by its cover. Excellent fit and very good comfort level. I've extended my mileage now by the mere comfort that this Nashbar product provides me. Catch these on a sales promotion and you can't loose. I've recently added another and will order these again. No failure to the stitching or Gel Pad after 800 miles. I give these a minimum of 4 1/2 Stars Nashbar - "don't change anything about this product".

                  Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                  I love this product. I does not wear a high end logo or symbol ok? it works and works very well. The gel pad is a little over sized right out of a packaging. Once worn it compress somewhat and provides excellent comfort. I've ordered one pair to try out. After a couple of weeks of daily usage, I placed a second order for a couple more. Catch these on a Sales Promotion and you have a great value. I'm NOT a Pro cyclist. I like to look Pro-style when I'm cycling, unless your some sort of snob, these look great and feel even better. Don't be turned off by the lack of a big name identifier printed on these pants. They work. I ride daily 19-25 miles no complaints from me. Get busy and place an order soon.
