    Shorts go for Endura Humvee
    Top this looks pretty cool

    I can second the Endura Humvee's they're great and you can get extra inners too.

    I got a couple of decent tops out of the Bargin bin @ halfords, Bicycle Line ones, breathable and windproof to a point, long sleeve, zip on the front for extra cooling and I only paid £9 each 8)
  • I know it's not what you want but for those who like lycra www.probikekit.co.uk it's nice and cheap with a good selection

    Yeah they have a removeable liner for ease of cleaning and the fact if the outers aren't dirty (yeah right) you can wear them again with a fresh liner.

    They have a coolmax pad on them too :)

    are they padded and do they have a liner
    thanks
  • You will need to buy a seperate liner.If you can try them on somewhere before you buy,as I hear the sizing can be a bit weird.

    got another question if any 1 can help.
    went to leeds yesterday and spotted evans cycles so went in and tryied on some endura shorts. not sure which 1s just watned to check the sizeing. i tryed a large which were fine round the waist and lenght wise but the liner seems very big. the padding was no were near my crown jewles. is this suposed to be like that or was it just a weird size. i am very tall and skinny so have to get bigger sizes to have the lenght
    thanks for any help

    yo mate!
    im 6ft6 and 34" waist...
    i just yesterday bought some endura single track shorts
    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=13217
    i bought them as 34" - 36" XL... cos like you like things long... and although they are a bit baggy on the censored they have good straps etc for the waist fit nice and length is great.

    i also bought some endura cycle shorts to go underneath with paddin in.. both combined give my tush a nice comfy ride lol!:D

    just need some full finger gloves next!
