After reading around that mountain bike specific shorts are far superior to, say, basketball shorts, I want to get some. However, I am looking at the prices of some and they are quite expensive. I want to get a pair that arent too expensive, say, over 50 dollars........preferably $40 or less?

Another question. Does having chamois make much of a difference? Does it look like you took a dump in your shorts when walking? Also, I'm a 30 waist............maybe 32? That might be loose.

What do you think of these?

Thanks. :thumbsup:

I've read some bad things about Hoss. Plus the color is quite horrendous.

I generally wear shorts over padding. I'm seriously looking at these as a base layer only. Never for $50 bucks but they do have the 34's at a great price, as well as the other sizes compared to other online buys right now.

Oh yeah, get some padding, it's worth while. If you wear boxers like me don't even think about mtb'ing in those only, your junk bounces all over the seat and makes it impossible to ride hard :) I found out the hard way.
