    Help with picking Long length Bike shorts

    I am looking to pick up some long length bike shorts.

    I recently got this short
    Fox Racing Demo FR Shorts - Men's | Backcountry.com

    and really like the long length.

    I am looking to get some additional pairs from different manufacturers and am looking for advice.

    I am interested in these
    Troy Lee Designs Ruckus Shorts - Men's | Backcountry.com

    can anyone comment on them and whether they have a long length?

    Also any other models/brands I need to consider.

    Thanks

    The Ruckus shorts are 15" inseam i believe. I ordered a pair but returned them....they are pretty nice shorts with a nice liner. The material is stretchy and felt comfortable. I have a pair of Royal Racing Turbulence shorts and they are longer and very nice. I am just under 6' and they go below my knees.

    I also own the Fox Demo shorts you listed first and love them. I'm 6'4" and for me the Troy Lee Ruckus shorts were a little too slim fit and short for me. I'm not heavy at all for my size, they are just a slimmer fit than I like, and definitely too short for my long legs. If you're not too tall they could work. The material was great.

    Why did you return them, too short?
