Its time to invest on some semi descent shorts, I am sure my butt will thank me :p

I've been using Performance shorts for a few years now, and after reading this forum and magazines; I get that shorts is where I should be investing my money on (if you don't think so, please let me know).

Withat that said, I have narrow my options to the Descente Strata ,Giordana Forma, and Perl Izumi P.R.O. I would like to hear from your experiences, if you have used any of these three.

BTW - I selected these three because of price range, and I have had good luck with Descente and Perl Izumi.

I use a pair of Giordana Team Colativa bib shorts/jersey. I also use a Nalini Pro, Castelli, and Campagnolo jerseys/shorts.

Like all clothes, get the ones that fit you the best. Bike fit is far more important for butt comfort than a specific short, bib or saddle.

Out of all of those, which one do you like best?

True, but once you get the fitting process down, isn't "clothing" the next most important thing?

Any decent bib or short that fits ya will work. Doesn't need to be a name brand nor cost an arm/leg. I have Giordana, Descente now. Have had Santini, Castelli, Curve, Nalini. All OK.

Cool, thanks for the info; with that said, I'll probably go with the least expensive one out of my list.

BTW - I do like the Performance Ultra shorts\Bibs; however they don't last as long as their cheaper models :(
