      Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

      I have been using this shorts for surfing for the last 10 years or so . As you get older you lose the padding in your rear. That in turn makes for two pressing bone spots that damage wetsuits in not time. This put the padding back over my seat bones.

          These would probably be fine except the grip elastic at the bottom of the let was oversized or something. Kind of bell bottom effect with it flared out. Looked and felt very strange. Returned them. Holding off on getting that brand for now.

                  Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                  The shorts themselves are nice. The material is very stretchy, and leg grippers are effective. The only problem is the gel pad. It simply is too narrow to offer cushion to my pressure points. The outside edges of the pad just barely touch my pressure points (sit bones), while the bulk of the pad bunches up in between. That gets uncomfortable, like I'm a toddler with a full diaper. I am 5'11' with 32in waist. Ordered size medium. If the pad were wider, the shorts would be very good.

                    These are not tight all over but have a draw string and fit fine. I am thin and fall between S & M. I do not think I could wear a small.

                        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Short:

                        These shorts were surprisingly ill fitting. They were generally loose, not form fitting and the material felt thin and had the elasticity of a spent balloon. The padding was overly large and needlessly ran too high up the back of the short. They felt cheaply made in comparison to every other pair of shorts I've worn over the past twenty years.

                        standing or walking padding feels bulky ,riding it's excellent recommend you cover with lightweight shorts if you're going to be off the bike for long .

                          I ride any where between 20 to 100 miles every time out up to 4 times a week. These perform like a more expensive brand I have. The legs are not as tight as I would like but it may be because my leg are not massive size yet

                            I bought this short at the start of the riding season. 1500 miles later it is still going strong. Most of my rides are between 20 and 40 miles. I've done less than 10 rides from 60 to 100 with these shorts.

                            I wash them in a machine with hot water, soap and normal cycle, double rinse, air dry after each ride.

                            No wear or tear on the gel. All the elastic is still in good shape.

                            I'm buying another pair. At this price, I am splurging! I have gotten a full season of comfort out of them - anything more is a bonus.
