best shorts for $50?(10 posts)

best shorts for $50?kyle_4375

As much as I'd like to be able to spend $100+ on Pearl Izumi Microsensors, etc., I don't see that in my financial future. So, for a guy on a budget, what shorts could you recommend around the $50 pricepoint? Thanks for your advice...

Well, actually Hank at has got the goods: Santini bib shorts for $50. I've ordered these from him more than once and have always gotten good service. If you haven't tried bibs, you should give them a shot. Most people who switch from shorts don't go back.

I got a pair of Performance Elite bibs (most comfortable thing I've ever worn) for $34.98 not too long ago. Look for them on sale sometime soon. The short version is now on sale for the same price. I hate spending retail for bike clothes, so I wait for sales. Definitely try the bibs, they are fantastic. Last time I looked, the bibs were on sale for $54.99, but if you can, wait for the lower price. They are worth it.

Sep 1, 2001 3:17 PM has pro kit as well as all blacks. Santini and Nalini are pro team uniform MFGs. Is pro kit good enough? Italtechno is a company that has Biemme bibs in that price range. $100 for bibs is off the scale, they better also pedal the bike and give me a massage afterward for that price. is also a good short with colors in the range you seek.

And guess what, they all make good shorts/bibs in the price range that the poster is looking for. Pro or no pro.

Make sure you get the Voler w/ Cantara chamois. Voler has some year-ends sales going. As the earlier post said, wait for the Performance Elite sales too.

Bib's are $29.98 and shorts are $34.98 in the email I got from them yesterday.

Try to figure that pricing scheme out?
