i'm hoping to buy some riding shorts that are padded and fitted as an under layer, but then have a more 'standard' outer layer. i thought i saw some in my lbs late last year, but tonight there wasnt anything. i saw the full on board short style, that go down past the knee, but i'm hoping for something just above the knee.
does anyone know if what i'm after exists and is able to be bought locally- sthn subs preferable.
Hi Simon. You're after the 'Shy Shorts'! Last I looked Oxygen Cycles in McLaren Vale had a limited range. If you don't mind buying on the net, Ground Effects from Christchurch New Zealand probably do the best quality (that I've seen anyway).
A while back I saw these shorts advertised in a cycling magazine. Some call them 'shy shorts'. An alternative would be short cycling nix with ordinary baggy shorts over the top. The bottom layer of synthetic nix would dry quickly after washing. The top layer of cotton shorts would suffice with less laundering.
I bought the fluid from anaconda for $20 on clearance. I absolutely love them.
At this link several shy shorts. Also Netti UndiNix for $29.90 that are worn under ordinary baggy shorts.
thanks everyone. the ones in that cycling sports link are what i was meaning.

Anaconda also have a selection - mostly with clip out bike shorts underneath.
I bought some Oakley ones from Bicycle Express a number of years ago. Still going strong. Great piece of kit.
