      Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

      If you're short waisted and typically wear jeans below your actual waistline, these will fit well. Unlike another pair of biking shorts with a higher back, these don't fall down and snag on the saddle horn. The crotch stays up where it belongs without my having to constantly pull my pants up.

      Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

      If you tried these on in a store you probably wouldn't buy them because they do fit funny with a short backside. However, when you wear them on a ride they are very comfortable. The lower backside is actually a plus because I don't wear bike jerseys in the heat. I prefer performance t-shirts which I find much more comfortable. But I have tucked in a base layer without a problem.
      I purchased a pair a couple of years ago when I was only averaging 20 or so miles a ride. This past summer I joined a group and began averaging 40 plus miles. The Tecumseh shorts went to the top of my shorts choices.
      Another reviewer mentioned some stitching failure. This happened to my pair also. But it's were a wing pad connects to the main chamois and with the shorts on it all stays in place, hence I have not sought a repair. These shorts are not very warm, so on a day when your considering wearing tights the Tecumsehs would not be a good alternative.
      For the money I think these shorts are a great value. I recently purchased two more pair and look forward to wearing them next summer. By being able to alternate wearing them the construction/durability factor should be less of a problem.

      Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

      The cut on these shorts is way too low in the back. My butt is a average butt, however these shorts are not high enough in the back for modesty. Other than that, they fit fine. I bought four pair of these, (my mistake for taking advantage of a sale) and trashed them all.

        Good product. Padding could be a little heavier. Purchased on sale with free shipping. Do not know why there is a draw string. Would purchase another pair.
        Excellent for everyday riding.

            The shorts would be great if the stitching did not start coming loose after the 2nd time wearing them. Sending them back is inconvenient so I guess I will have to live with them until they are not usable then switch to another brand in the future

              Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

              I blew out my shorts training for Bike MS and needed a replacement. The backorder date on the pair I ordered got pushed back to beyond the ride, so I needed something quickly and ordered these because they were inexpensive and in stock. I was quite surprised when they came at how light they were and how good they felt on. The pad is really far superior to anything I've ever seen in this price range. I basically took them out of the bag and wore them for Bike MS over two days and had no problem whatsoever.

                This is a reorder of this product for me I have used two pair for over a year during Spin class three days a week and for longer rides on the weekends and they still are as good as new. I reordered as they are very good and cannot be beat at the price especially when on sale.
