Good enough...at least for shorter rides

    Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

    I have three pairs of these, but only buy them when they go on sale. The chamois looks impressive at first glance but the relatively large lip on it, especially in front, wreaks havoc with my anatomy and leads to numbness on longer rides especially if I'm on my aerobars. The spandex is pretty good and provides plenty of compression. The newest pairs I have are a little less generous in the seat and seem to ride lower than my older pair...maybe my butt just got bigger, or I haven't stretched them out enough yet. Without the chamois issue I'd give them a 4 and obviously like them enough to buy more (if they're on sale).

    Comments about Nashbar Tecumseh Shorts:

    Similar to the Cabot but for some reason after one ride the stitches just seemed to aggravate my skin. It sticks up to high. In addition they are really low in the back but I had read that so I didn't count is as a con, but it really is.

      Just what it should be. No nonsense. Excellent chamois, excellent spandex. I ride several thousand road bike recreational miles per year and have found these to be perfect. Essentially the same as the "name brand" products.

          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.
