    New question here. Padded DH shorts or liners?

    I went downhilling this weekend (felt like a pretty sorry atempt at it with my 150mm travel bike at N*), and my DH bike will *eventually* be really..

    But anyway, I was looking for padded (as in fall protection, not chamois) shorts for DH. Has anyone found some that work? All I can find is guy's sizes, and being quite "hippy" it's hard to find something that fits.

    Any suggestions?

    shorts

    hi stripes-glad you got time at Northstar and that helped you decide on your bike. It sounds like a boxxer rebuild and you will be on your way. Anyhow, I use the troy lee impact shorts. Also tried fox ones, like the fit on the troy lee better. Only thing is that it's a bit of work to get the liner back into the slots every time you wash them. Oh, i also tried a pr. of 661 and hated them for biking, (hard to pedal with the hard plastic) but worked out fine for dirt biking.

    Thanks Jewels. It looks like it's just the guy's fit mainly for options. Was hoping there was something more curvy fitting. I had the 661s, but I don't think they make those anymore. I would love to find them if they did.
