    Clyde Friendly Shorts?

    Iím looking for some new shorts right now. I looked at the Zoic Ethers like another thread mentioned, but some of the reviews mentioned that the liner was on the short side and bunches up. Iím open to shorts that both have a liner or donít have a liner, but my preference being one that does have a liner.

    Just wear normal shorts, whatever style you like and feel comfortable in. I have MTB-specific shorts but I don't wear them. My normal cargo-type shorts are more comfortable.

    The liner that comes in the Fox Rangers are long enough for me (6'5"). I have bought a cheap liner that was too short before so I know exactly what you're talking about.

    I like to wear spandex under normal shorts. Aerotech designs have nice commuter shorts that work great for MTB. Nashbar has cheap mesh liner chamois that don't hold up great but they're cheap.

    Shorts over bibs. That way the chamois doesn't sag and you can find a lot of decent shorts for not a lot of money that will work. A good pair of bibs will set you back $75-$100 but last you for several years at least. I have two pairs and just rotate them and they are going strong on their third year with no end in sight.

    What size waist do you have in jeans (ie. Levi's 40) and what size Humvee did you order? All the poor ratings complain that they're way undersized. One guy said he's a 32 could fit snugly in the XL.

    Thanks, Fahn

    Size 38-40 in Levi's, wear a XXL Endura but I like my shorts a little baggy. Should also add that I am 5'10" and weight about 270-280lbs and the are just a little long but perfect once you sit down on the bike.

    I didnít care for Aerotechís MTB shorts. I ended up with a pair of Fox Sergeant that fit perfect. I just cut the cheap crappy liner out and wear my Pearl Izumiís.

    I'm also using Humvees.

    I buy from Wiggle (well, I live in Australia, so they are quite good) and got the Humvee IIs in XXL.

    I am a size 40 in Leviís and I have found that pearl izumi xl and xxl fits nicely.

    Other stuff that seems to work for me are sugoi xl/xxl and the stuff from mec (in canada) which is similar to rei in the us.

    Almost any baggy shorts over bibs has worked out great for me. I found that the liners liked to roll over. The only problem I have with shorts over bibs is that the shorts are hard to keep up. Pull them up high and tighten them and it's hard to breathe, but leave them too loose and I'm constantly stopping to pull them up. I have used the chumms suspenders with a little success, but they rub it they aren't lined up just right.

    I was wondering if this would be a problem.

    If you really want to spend money, dirtbaggies makes bibs meant to be worn under baggies. They have loops to snap the outer shorts onto.

    I have dakine baggys and think they're OK, but not perfect. I forget the model, but they fit nice. They have removable liners which I never used (anybody want them? Brand new, never worn or washed! $30 takes all 3!). The issue is that the seams thread is falling apart and they are only one year old. Also, they were advertised as having a rear pocket, but they're just fake flaps.

    Here are the liners Fwiw.Clyde Friendly Shorts?-20180318_192947.jpg

    Do your dakine shorts have the adjustable waistbands? If so, about how far do they cinch inward/shorten up? I am usually a 36 but put on some weight this winter so 36 is uncomfortable. Thinking of going with the 38 and then hoping that I can cinch it down close to 36 this summer, and have it tailored if need be.

    Mine do have that, but they also have belt loops. Since I use the belt loops, I can't really answer how much they size down.

    Thanks
