Just want to say that I've never owned a pair of decent shorts before . The best I've had were a pair of Endura's I bought from Wiggle a year or so ago. Cost about 40 or 50 quid. I thought they were the business. Very comfortable and have taken a serious amount of abuse.
I was a bit dubious that Assos could top them, but when I saw Ribble selling F1 Uno's for just over £50, I thought I'd give them a go.
Well, what can I say.? They are unbelievably comfortable.
In a different league altogether to the Enduras. They really do fit like a proverbial glove and the pad is just amazing.
I can see now why people rave over the Assos shorts.

So, if anyone is thinking of getting a decent pair of shorts, deffo get some Assos.

    I was worried it was hype until I bought a pair last year. 5 I now have 3 pairs. They really are the best.

    I bought 2 pairs from Ribble at the same bargain price. They are amazing!

    I must have a non discerning butt then.

    They're well made, but certainly no comfier than my other shorts and I think I prefer my trisuit with minimal padding in.

    I hear from a buddy of mine that the new 08 model with the waffle pad is even better!
